It is perfectly normal to get mood swings during pregnancy. It is basically your hormones playing havoc. Keep yourself occupied with good happy thoughts. Meditate, listen to good music and read religious books. Go for walks in gardens or Malls . Do window shopping and read baby books. DO NOT read unnecessary stuff about pregnancy on the net ! It can get very depressing if you bump into information about problems during pregnancy, then you start imagining everything bad will happen to you !! If you are a working women continue working with some modifications unless there is a medical reason for you to take it easy. Hope this helps !

this is due to the change in the hormone levels during the pregnancy. i also had this problem in my 5th month. my husband advised me to indulge in alternative activity to divert my atension. i had interest in reading novels. so he made an arrangement to bring new novels every time he comes home. as i indulged my self in reading books the depression also went away
