  • my chiro put me on a good Omega 3 suppliment. she said that w/ each pregnancy you deplete your stores more and more till it's gone. I started it before pregnany and doubled my dosage durring pregnancy(had blues start then). It has helped immensly. I hoping that I can avoid antidepressents this time by taking my suppliment, exercise, and if that's not enough I'll cut out sugar. The sugar thing I got from the book Potatoes not Prozac

  • I had a terrible case after my first pregnancy and had to go on an antidepressant for about a year to get me back to normal.... but NONE after my second pregnancy. I kept expecting it to hit..but it never did:) I think every person is different.
