Has anyone, or anyone know anyone, who has been on anti depressants while pregnant.
Psychiatrist has said it is relatively safe - eeeeek - I do know that they can't tell you it's safe just in case it's not.
I am trying to do without, and it is hard. But lately I have been thinking. I am not getting dressed showered etc til late late afternoon. I feel like my daughter wants to do stuff and I am not doing enough stuff. I don't feel particularly sad at this stage, I actually feel a bit like I have no emotions, no interest, no motivation and no personality most of the time, . There are sometimes when I feel ok. At night mainly.
My dilema is this - if I take a tablet every day I will feel guilty that I may be harming the unborn baby and if he/she ends up with some damage as a result - but if I don't take a tablet I feel guilty that I am not good enough mother to my already born child.
This morning, I did get up and get showered before lunch time and I took her out for lunch. SO maybe it's just about effort, but the effort is so huge. I feel like being alive is just a massive effort. But maybe I could just make the big effort everyday. I suppose in a way that is what being a parent is about.
Anyway, I know it is a very selfish question but if anyone has any experience or tips I'd be really grateful.
