you will need to tell your doctor that you are trying to conceive because there are many medications that can affect your baby and you don't want to get pregnant while on them I have heard that welbutrin can actually be taken during pregnancy so that maybe a great medication for you to try

I was on welbutrin when I was younger. I actually quit smoking while on it too.. I just don't want to affect our chances of TTC, but I need to take care of myself. this while depression mode I am in needs to stop

Sadly mine has nothing to do with my TTC... it has everything to do with my inlaws following DH and I to a new state. They also have to use my washer,dryer, shower and kitchen because theya re going to live in a camper trailer. They will be living here other than sleeping here... 

Before DH and I got divorced, they caused a lot of issues, now that we are back together, I don't want it to happen again.

Wanna let me know what your doc says? lol I haven't been on antidepressants for like 3 years. I thought I was over this... but everything is just.... attacking my heart right now. My grandma started chemotherapy yesterday, and ugh the last year has been horrible.... With my grandma being diagnosed with breast cancer, and moving away from my family, now his family attacking me... ugh.

I know I had to go off all my meds while ttc.  Granted I was on stuff a bit stronger than antidepressants (Depakote, Atavan, and Tranzadone).  Definitely make sure your doc knows you are ttc and then they can put you on the right meds.  Also as an alternative to meds you might consider some kind of therapy.

I got off of them while ttc per my ob and my dr. I was taking Zoloft for my anxiety and ocd and it helped 100% now ive been off of it for almost 6 months and my anxiety is getting bad. So im going to ask ob and Dr if I can take a low dose while ttc and quit if I get preg. if not im taking a break from ttc to get my anxiety in order. My Dr and ob said Zoloft is the safest to take (if you have to) while your pregnant but I still refused to take it even while ttc, but we need to take care of us too. Feel free to message me if need to hun.

I have to wait until my husband gets home before I can go to the doctor... I don't want to have to take my 3 year old with me... but ugh... I am sick of not taking care of myself... I have even decided that I want to do weight loss surgery, but that wont be for a while.
