I have a history (and family) with depression. I was taking Paxil, but stopped taking it in July when we decided to try for another baby. I got pregnant in August and now 23 weeks. I am desperate to be back on my meds. I have lost 15lbs since start of pregnancy. I feel like no one loves me, and everyone wants to hurt me. I cry every day (no joke) And I havent wanted to be intimate with my husband since I got pregnant. It's destroying my marriage and my mothering ability. I know paxil has been linked to birth defects, so that's why I stopped before I got pregnant. But is there something else that is safe? I have an appointment with my Dr. on Friday to discuss it, but I am so anxious. And I am scared to death that my Dr. will tell me I have to wait to have my baby. I just dont think I can make it that long.
