  • I did. I don't know what the percentage risk is but at least this time if it does happen, you'll immediately be able to identify the signs and get some help. Don't stress about it though, there's no point in worrying about something you cannot control. You may be just fine!

  • I did too. Your odds are higher once you've had it but I don't know the how much higher. jeanclaudia is right - at least you and your family will know what to look out for. Keep your spirits up and hope for the best!

  • I had it and my therapist said you have a higher chance of getting it next time. But the good news is if you want you can start taking meds before you even have the baby, it's safe. Good luck!
