crazy mommy

it was only about 3 months ago that i was diagnosed B.P.II. A couple weeks ago we started looking into the possibility of PMDD ... uugh. and on the 17th took a positive pregnancy test. The safest route for the baby was to go off the meds, this seemed reasonable at the time because i figured i really hadnt been on them that long and was still only taking a very low dose. I am miserable, I am terrified. I feel so unstable and while my body is healthy my mind is not. I need to work but cant get out of bed. I have horrible nightmares mostly about the babies fathers, who just so happened to have left me about a week before i found out. The insanity became to much for him... I wake every morning with anxiety and go to bed every night in the same state. How am i going to get through this? More importantly how will i provide a healthy stable environment for this baby.
Are there any woman who have gone through something similar?

Re: crazy mommy

Hi crazy mommy,

My heart goes out to you. I have been where you are. I was abandoned by my 1st husband when I was pregnant with my daughter. It was very scary, but you will survive by taking one day at a time.

As far as dealing with depression while pregnant, I've read that ECT is an option for pregnant women. I know it's not something everyone is comfortable with, but if the depression is bad enough, it's good to know there is something you can try.
I hope you find love and support and that you will stay strong as you find your way through this.
