Have you guys ever had her evaluated for depression? A combination of counseling and treatment for depression (if it is diagnosed) may be appropriate. I am suggesting the counseling because of the problems with her upbringing. Because she is pregnant now and will have to deal with hormones, you are right about the mood swings. You could set aside time to talk and let her know about your concerns and the effects on the baby. Be loving and supportive, but let her know how serious your concerns are and be firm about seeking a resolution. You guys could even go to her next prenatal appointment together and speak to her doctor about the issue. I wish you both (and the baby) well.

It sounds very much as though you haven’t been successful telling her to get over it and get strong and now you want someone else to succeed by telling her the same thing. Hasn’t worked for you and won’t work in the future. YOU can’t do a damn thing to solve her problems. Only she can do that. So, butt out. That doesn’t mean you must accept the situation–far from it. She must be responsible for her mental condition. My thought would be that you are enabling her much as one would enable an alcoholic–you cover for her, urge her to do what she needs to do etc. If she can’t function, make her responsible for the bad things that happen. You may have to get to the point that you tell her to move out or you move out if you can’t deal with it. Let her know you’ll help her get help but she’s got to decide to do it. I suggest a therapist or counselor in the mental health field.
