I have bipolar disorder.
When I was pregnant with my 4 yr old I was also dealing with the death of my oldest child who passed away at 18 months old (God rest her soul) and so I was on numerous anti-depressants and other medications.....I tried to commit suicide so everyone agreed that the risk of the medication to the baby would be a great deal less then the risk of me trying to commit suicide again (that was for any mom who might bash for me being on pysch meds while pregnant) Kelley-Christina is now 4 yrs old, healthy and happy.
With THIS pregnancy I went completly off all my medications and to tell you the truth I feel okay....yes I have my blue days and I have my rage days but I think all in all I'm adjusting pretty okay (although you would have to check with my husband to get his side of the story lol)
I'm starting to kind of wonder if I need the medication at all and I was wondering what my CM friends thought....should I just leave them alone and continue to just try every day to keep my moods in check or am I going to....relapse for lack of a better word...If you've ever stopped your meds how did it go?

Next question overall
Is there a way to tell who you get thumbs down votes on?
