I just feel so so sad :(


The title says it all really. Due to my ongoing battle with severe anxiety and OCD I've not enjoyed one minute of this pregnancy. Its my 4th baby and final as my OH is getting a vasectomy in the summer. I've suffered with these issues on and off for around 9 years but i am now paying to see a private therapist who i started seeing just before i got pregnant. I just feel guilty on this baby as my others i was excited for but this time round the anxiety has such a grip on me I'm finding it impossible to enjoy anything. I know the hormones are making it much worse. Pregnancy is such a blessing and i love my kids more than anything but i feel like im being robbed of something that's so beautiful. I intend to go back on meds once the baby is here while continuing my therapy. All I'm doing is counting down the weeks so i can go back on my tablets!
Sorry for long post i just had to get my feelings written down somewhere

I am feeling the same. Im having more low days than good days at the minute.
Ive had to come off my antidepressants but after speaking to the consultant at my local hospital yesterday he has told me to book in with my gp to get back on them.
My blood pressure is high so maybe thats why, im sure my anger and constant irritability and worrying isnt good for baby xx

Oh no sorry you're going through this aswel. It seems so unfair that we even get this sort of thing. I'm constantly having to take myself out the room so i don't havr a go
At my kids. I've constantly got this amazingly happy front on for them so they don't pick up on it.. Its almost like a form of imprisonment. I wish my happy front wasn't a front x

Haha yes my OH definitely has to put up with a lot but he's quite clued up on it all now so he knows alot of it isn't really me talking. Yes i have loads of times but they all just recommend CBT and mindfulness. I've been on a few courses over the years but they didn't make much difference hence why ive gone privately. I've had a few hypnotherapy sessions which definitely help . What meds are you planning on going on? Xx

Oooh hypnotherapy sounds good, not tried that. Does it just make you more calm?
Well i was on citalopram 10mg in my last pregnancy so they may put me back on that, im not sure.
I was on venlafaxine before i got pregnant this time which was perfectly for me but i think its not as safe in pregnancy as some of the others? X

It definitely calms you having hypnosis but after a while its supposed to almost rewire your brain. I can really feel a difference the day after so it does something! I was on citalopram when i first started suffering with the anxiety but then switched to sertraline which ive been taking on and off over the years. I came off it before i got pregnant but I'm definitley going to need to go back on it once ive had the baby but I'll have to take the minimal dose as I'll be breast feeding xx

I know sertraline is considered the safest in breastfeeding as hardly anything passes into your milk from it. I started taking it in once my last baby was 5 months and i breastfed til he was not far off of 1 and he had no obvious effects from it. X
