Does anyone take meds for depression while pregnant? I am soooooo nervous to ask a doctor. They always give you these looks like what you can't handle life. I am especially nervous because i am pregnant and want to breastfeed. I find myself lashing out and yelling at the kiddos a lot,tired, no motivation what so ever. I am not the mommy i want to be or they deserve. My middle boy is adhd bad and is very rough to make listen and has been very difficult and i'm not handling it like i should. I also don't want to endanger my baby by taking something i know i need it though. Does anyone take anything or atleast know how i feel? I sometimes wish i could go back and start all over again. Be a differant mommy. I love my beautiful babies more than anything.

It seems that now days everyone calls cps for everything so now nobody feels like than can get help and suffers. Same thing when it comes to counseling. Afraid to tell them your stressed.

I know how you are feeling, but I'm trying not to go on med's because I don't tend to react well to anti-depressents. Talk to your Dr. if he/she can deal with with the birth process and all the less than glamorous parts of pregnancy he/she can deal with depression.There may be a support grupe or counseling program you can try if you don't want to go on med's. good luck

And I would really like to avoid taking medication since I hate taking pills. But soon I might have to break down and talk to them since dh has started to ask me to speak to someone...
