I'm not really sure of how to go about discussing this as it's rather a touchy subject. But here goes.
I've been on depression meds since I was about 16. I'm now 31. I'm terrified about how my mood is right now or might get later because I'm not on them anymore. My doctor took me off them the minute she was told I'm pregnant. I don't know what is normal any more than my husband does at this point.
I'm 7 weeks along now at this point and I'm wondering, will it get worse as the medicine exits my system? I tend to work myself into a hole socially as it is when I'm depressed or emotional. Now, I'm scared of scaring off my MW. LOL. I'm sure she realizes that it's hormones too. I get really irritable at the dumbest things and if something doesn't go my way, I start crying. I wake up irritable and feel the need to hit something (thankfully not someone) quite often. I'm thinking about joining the Y so I can hit a punching bag over and over until I feel better. My husband wants me to go on walks with him and I'm starting that tomorrow. Maybe that will help my mood too.
Anyway, is this normal? Am I nuts? Both maybe? LOL. Any suggestions? Any experiences of having to get off anti-depressants and being pregnant?
