feeling of not able to persue your desired career makes you sad at times, plus pregnancy, bacause of harmonal and bodily changes, put extra stress, and your feel drpressed.
There are help options available.
beacause of pregnacy medications must be avoided as much as possible.
you can seek psychotherapy/counselling, it can help you with your coping and stress handling skills.
meanwhile try to keep yourself busy, you can spend time with your hobbies with consulting your gynecologist. keep yourself busy
