This is not pre delivery depression; it’s just the reality of your pregnancy setting in. In the early stages of the first and second trimester, mostly for the first timers. There are usually lots of hormonal, psychological and physical changes and a combination of these three brings about strange emotions. You may find some, by 2am peeling egusi (dried melon seed), rearranging the kitchen settings on Sunday afternoon and then crying over a cute pair of shoes in the rack.
This is as a result of the inexplicable way they feel in their minds and their bodies, may be really funny sometimes but do not laugh at them, at least not to their faces. Engage in conversations about what they like, sometimes just let them be. But assure them that you are there whenever they want to talk.
For some, this drama ends before the start of the third trimester.
