My husband has been nagging at me for over a year because he wants another baby. We have an almost 3 year old son. I am a full time student, and I work part-time as well. I think I have decided that I want to add to the family, but I am on antidepressants I need advice! I'm worried if I get off my antidepressants, I will become depressed again - that's what happened last time. Help!

There are some meds that you can take while pregnant... but also there are many natural therapies you can look into.

Definitely talk to a doctor, maybe an obstetrician. I'm about 95% sure my cousin was on antidepressants throughout her pregnancies (she's been on them for years and I don't believe she can come off them without major emotional effects), and her two kids are just fine. So I'm sure there are ones you can take.

ahhhh, I am so happy to have joined JM...

I am also on antidepressants and TTC (my first). My doctor knows all about my depression and she advised me to get pregnant and then we will work with our options.

There are risks for all anti depressants, and the dr will assess if the patients mental state of mind and benefits of the meds will outweigh the risks.
