Hi is it possible to have a private post on mums advice group please?
So, please bare with me, it’s quite long.
After my first I suffered with PND, I had counselling and was put on fluoxetine and things were starting to look up.
I found out I was pregnant again in November despite still being on antidepressants. I was advised to start weaning off them by my GP as baby can have withdrawals, at first I was doing great. I thought I was managing. Now 6 months down the line I’ve hit rock bottom again, my husband and I are constantly arguing. I’m low in mood, zero sex drive, I’m forever agitated. My marriage is failing because of it and I’m not sure if we can get through it again as I’m bringing my hubby down. I feel as though I’ve taken 1 step forward and 3 steps back. I was terrified of my PND reoccurring again and I’m absolutely terrified when the baby comes along I won’t be able to bond again.
Has anyone else been in a similar position? Please tell me it gets easier as right now I feel like I’m failing as a mum and failing as a wife. I feel like my hubbys gonna leave and I wouldn’t blame him as there’s only so much someone can take. Can you even take tablets whilst you’re pregnant as I feel I’m not coping with no tablets? I’m also worried about the effects of my unborn baby.
