I was diagnosed with bi-polar 1 disorder, depression/anxiety, schizo-effective disorder. I was taking some meds, ablilify, celexa, and vistoril. The meds took the edge off things, but didn't help completely. Now I'm pregnant, and haven't taken any meds except benedryl for alergies the whole time. I'm 29wks and I'm starting to feel very aggressive and depressed, not to mention anxious and upset about being pregnant. This just started a few weeks ago. Before I was happy about all this. Now I just wish it were over. I'm scared to take meds because of what they might do to the baby girl. But I'm more afraid of going through postpartum depression again. I had it with a previous pregnancy. I'm so mixed up in my mind I just don't know what to do. Can someone shine a little light on the subject?View Thread
