I'm Katey, 31, about 6 weeks pregnant. I was an active member of this board over 2 years ago when I was pregnant before, but our baby miscarried at 10 weeks.

I am diagnosed with depression and take Effexor XR 150. As soon as I got my BFP last week, I stopped the meds.

It's... odd. I am doing okay. Effexor had been a wonder drug for me. Since age 26 I had battled with depression and anxiety and had been tried on a slew of different meds.

I am having a rough time coping with social situations. I feel like my dearest friends are upset with me. I fully know that these are irrational thoughts and that I must stay positive for the sake of the baby!

I see my therapist (thank God) next week. Any tips on how to stay sane?!??

First all Congrats on your pregnancy. If you are having anxiety about the possibility of this pg ending the same as your last then I have to reccomend the Pregnancy loss board the ladies are great there and can really help you. Other than that I hope that your therapist will be a big help to you and that you can find a medication that works for you in pregnancy if thats what they think is best for you. If you ever need to vent and just talk don't hesitate to do so on this board or even PM me. I hope that you have a very happy and healthy pregnancy!

Congrats on your pregnancy! Coming off Effexor can be very hard. Just keep your appointments with your therapist and make sure to let your doctor know if things get to be too much.
