Our expert says:
It's not unusual for someone during pregnancy, especially an unplanned pregnancy, to get more easily upset than usual ( and you mention you were always rather sensitive ). Don't be too harsh on yourself for being emotional at this time --- and though I'm no expert on baby showers, I suspect they'd almost be disappointed if you didn't get a bit tearful.
But youmight well be developing a Depression which deserves treatment. If your medical aid won't stretch to seeing a psychiatrist ( if it's "exhausted" by February, I assume it doesn't run to calendar yeears ? ) then you can see a GP, who could asses the degree of your depression, and if he/she thinks it necessary, select one to suit you and the pregnancy. If that's not possible, you could arrange to be seen at a state / provincial clinic, explaining the urgency, for a consultation there and the prescription. I wouldn't recommend a specific drug for you at this stage, as the assessment would be important, and you would need to see a doctor for the prescription, anyway.
