I feel like a child trying to get to sleep the night before Christmas.

Eagerness and anticipation... only also mixed with extreme fear.

I go for my first appointment today at 3:30. I have been praying like crazy all day and just am hoping for the best and that God gives me the strength to graciously accept His will.

Thankfully, my husband was able to take 1/2 day at work so he'll be home at 2:30 to drive with me there.

Thank you all so much for your kind words and support. Please wish me luck.

It went... ok, I guess. I am only 5 weeks, but the ob wants me to start taking my antidepressant again. I don't know if I should get a 2nd opinion or what? I am happy that she said it would be OK, because my moods have been terrible and I cry at least 7x a day.

I go for an u/s on the 7th of July. I can't stop checking my breasts to make sure they're sore and I am paranoid about how I am not feeling nausea yet.

I don't know too much about anti depressants and what is safe during pregnancy, but I would 2nd guess it. I mean, is it hormones making you cry or depression? This is of course just IMO.

I am glad it went okay.

Hello,

I take 150 mg of Effexor XR. I am diagnosed as "Clinically Depressed." The medicine, indeed, does work wonders for me. Without, I have a difficult time coping in life situations -- I worry about everything and anything and really feel like life is no good. When I am taking my Effexor and I also see a therapist -- there is light and there is hope. .

My OB says Effexor is Class C... I googled "Effexor during pregnancy" and read some horror as well as inspirational stories.

Thank you all so much for listening.

Effexor is a miracle drug.

Isn't it though? I have tried a slew of other antidepressants and, for one reason or another, Effexor is the only one that's truly helped me.

Hopefully a happy mama will make a happy baby stay and grow.

Trying to stay positive.

I was on Prozac before Dr put me on Effexor and it was horrible! Glad it is working for you though and glad you are happy to remain a happy mama!

Positive thoughts are always good. Try and stay that way!!

I'm trying. With the losses it's so very hard to stay positive. I truly envy the women who can be filled with blissful joy early on in pregnancy. I wonder if I'll ever be able to be like that.
