I have been pretty good with my depression, for the past year or so... I have been off my meds for around a year now, and am coping okay off them, but I'm worried about what's going to happen after Emersyn is born - if the added pressure of having another child, and doing it alone, is going to be enough to send me back down that horrible spiral...

I didn't have PPD with Gaby, and my depression didn't really kick in until she was 18 months old - about 4 months after me & Gaby moved out on our own. I don't want to be on meds, but at the same time, I know I can't function as a mother, if I am in the midst of untreated depression..

I guess I just have to wait and see...

I'm sorry your feeling like this. Will your family help you out if you need it? I know that it is hard taking care of more then one child. When I had Angelica I still had Bailey and Kayson to take care of.

I know my parents would help out if I asked them, but i know that they won't be able to help enough to make much of a difference, if I DO find myself heading back 'that way'... Not that their help wouldn't be sooooooooooooooo appreciated, but I can't expect them to change all their plans etc to help me out...
