Hi I'm new here
Hello. :smile: I am not new to JustMommies as I was quite involved about 5 years ago when I had my last child but I feel like it's new again. I suffer from treatment resistant depression (have all my life - I'm 36) Just in the last year I found a combination of drugs that actually help a little. Now my dh and I are thinking about trying for baby #3 and I have so many mixed emotions about it. Should I rock the boat? You know what I mean? My husband feels like he just got his wife back and I feel like I'm back and ready to be a mother again. I would be on some medication during my pregnancy which of course gives me some guilt feelings but I know over all it is the best choice for me and the baby. I'd love to hear from others in this situation to know I'm not alone.

Re: Hi I'm new here
me & my hubby are ttc and my pysch doc wants me to get off my meds when i become pregnant, now i have to find a new doc or go off meds, i don't have to worry about that till i find out i'm pregnant, but i'm disappointed she isnt supportive of the benefit to me, out weighs the risk to our future baby. i'm angry at her, but respect her policy.

Re: Hi I'm new here
Disregard if you want because I only want one child.

I'm tried several medications. This is the first combination that works for me. I am not capable of long term stability (honestly shot term either) without proper medication. The medication I am on would not allow me to get pregnant without major risk to future child. I feel it would be to much of a risk for myself and family to have another child. If my medication would not have to be changed or had no children then maybe. I am not willing to risk long-term hospitalization. You have to weigh the pros and cons for yourself and family. If you are on a mood stabilizer I would suggest having an ob/gyn that specializes in mental illness or epilepsy.
