Suffering from depression or extreme sadness and unable to accept eating as normal, however feeling more distance to everyone and wanting to be alone?

If it doesn't pass,: Consider a bit of psychotherapy or counseling to resolve the feelings. Pregnancy can alter your hormones and it certainly can alter your life.
