Facing difficult times during pregnancy.

Hi all! Hope all are doing fine in here. I'm 14 weeks pregnant and I'm in my worst days. I lost my sister recently in a car accident. She was my cousin sister, but we were really very close to each other. I still remember, how happy she was when I told her about my pregnancy. She even gifted me my very first maternity dress. I never thought such terrible things would happen. I just can't get out of the thought that she is gone forever and could never see my child. I just can't stop crying thinking about her and I'm even crying now, while writing this. And all this is getting me into depression. I've always been a very sensitive kind of person and now it's just so difficult to control my emotions. I'm worried whether my child would get affected with all these. I had once been into depression during my teens and I don't want to get back into that stage. What do I do? However, my family and friends have been quite supportive. My friends even keep sending me mails everyday to check if I'm okay. They also keep sending me inspirational quotes and articles to help me out. One of my friends even shared me this blog this morning. https://www.campisilaw.ca/blog/depression-and-inj… It's about how you can get out of depression. I'm really glad that I have such wonderful people around me. Yet I just can't get out of the grief of the loss of my sister. Please advice as to what I could do. Should I consider medical help?

    I'm extremely sorry for your loss....... my deepest condolences.... it's never easy to lose something that your close to...... After my 3rd was born, my best friend and sister passed away from leukemia..... it was a hard period in my life. It's been almost 2 years and there is not a day that I don't think about her. It's completely normal to grieve for your sister..... take all the time you need. It never hurts to seek help if and when you need it. It's nice having someone to talk to. For many people it takes time. Depression is hard to conquer and even more so to deal with when your pregnant. Talk to your doctor or whoever your seeing for your prenatal care and ask them what they think. It's great that you have a support system of friends and family. I'm always here if you ever need someone to talk to. I know we may not know each other but I understand losing someone you care about and I understand battling depression as I've been battling for many years as well. Again, my deepest condolences.

      I'm sorry for your loss, I know how you feel, it's hard and u don't understand why and your hope that it's just a bad dream. Don't give up keep going do it for your baby and your sister. Just think your sister wouldn't want you to get depressed about her, she would want you to celebrate her life and enjoy your pregnancy and your baby! Remember she will always be in your heart and in your thoughts! I'm glad you had lost of people who you can talk to.
