In a new interview with Us Weekly, the 21-year-old revealed she's been suffering from prenatal depression, and divulged how the symptoms have been since becoming pregnant six weeks ago:
"My depression affects my appetite, sleeping patterns and overall perspective on life. At times, I have severe insomnia and other times I find myself sleeping too much. I have feelings of hopelessness but experience many moments of absolute euphoria."
The momma-to-be, who is also taking Xanax to treat her anxiety, continued:
"I already love this baby so much. I just fear the thought of motherhood. It's such an overwhelming responsibility and I want to be the very best mommy that I can possibly be."
Court touched upon feeling overwhelmed back when she made the announcement two weeks ago. Luckily though, she's been able to put her feelings down on paper.
"I'm working on a self-help book called Blonde & Blue. It's an explicit in-depth account of my saddest, darkest moments as well as my highs … My hope is by being painfully honest, my story can inspire others."
Hopefully it does!
In the meantime, the pregnant bombshell has been fighting some serious morning sickness in her first trimester. On Tuesday, she posted an update to Instagram:
We're thinking of her during this pregnancy!
