Re: Need some advice

I have heard you can take zoloft and I think a couple other kinds of anxiety meds. Maybe even what you might be taking now, if anything. I am not sure as far as sleeping goes. I would ask doc about that when you go in. They will be able to help you decide what meds and other stuff is okay for the baby. I know I was going to start zoloft because my anxiety attacks made a strong return right after I found out I was. Recently they have subsided quite a bit. I still start getting that feeling but I try to concentrate on other stuff to help ease my mind I guess. Sleeping... I went through a good two or three week period where I would be up til 4am then get up for work at 7 and I was exhausted because of it. I did take tylenol pm one or two times but not too often. I hope some of this was helpful for you

13 weeks 5 days hope everyone is well

Zoloft is ok to take during pregnancy. Just ask your DR if you can take that. That should help you.

i was on lexapro which prevents anxiety and helps with depression. i didnt know that i could still take this being pregnant, but i could of. and i regret not taking anymore, although i havent had any problems. dont worry, there is a med out there you can take during pregnancy. talk to your doc, see what they recommend. remember, if mommy isnt happy then baby tends to be not happy as well. congratulations and good luck.
