Re: Hello, I'm a newbie here and need advice!

I was diagnosed at age 35. Go ahead and get the diagnosis but DO NOT take any medication while pregnant. I did, however, actually read something about a woman who was ADD and got off her meds while pregnant and said she felt fine...something about the increased Estrogen levels help with focusing....I dunno.

Anyway, if it will make you feel better, go get the diagnosis from a psychiatrist and inform him that you are trying to get pregnant.

There are many books out there on Adult AD/HD that are so informative. Just educate yourself a little at a time.

Welcome to the rest of your life! It will get better, I promise!
