Induction due to anxiety/depression (UK)


I'm reluctant to start taking meds so far in pregnancy. I've talked to my midwife and she suggested talking to my consultant about induction. She said even if he doesn't induce me early he probably won't let me go over my due date. I had anxiety last time but nowhere near as bad. It's hit me both times during the last month. I can't sleep, eat or think straight half if the time. I've been having panic attacks and feeling sick/diarrhea for days now. I just feel like sh*t. Anyone been in the same situation and been induced?

Xx

I havnt been induced because of anxiety or depression, but I was on tablets for it until I found out I was expecting , then my doc stopped them, I know how it feels , it's a horrible feeling , I hope they induce you at least by your due date x

I was induced due to aniexty. I went off my meds completely with my son and I was miserable the whole time. I was induced at 39 weeks. It ended up being very traumatic for me and him, since he was NOT ready to come. I tore horribly and he had a traumatic birth and had to stay a week in NICU. Needless to say he is perfect and doing great. I have stayed on my medicine this entire pregnancy and it makes such a huge difference. Baby is doing very well, and this time I'm waiting until he's ready.

I really hope he does let me get and induction. I don't think I'll manage much longer. It can't be good for the baby. I'm waking up in the night to be sick I'm worrying that much. I'm just a miserable mess. My mum is so supportive and helps me loads. I'm gonna bring her along to the appointment.

Happythought, were you induced because your anxiety was so severe or was it planned when u came off your meds? I haven't been on meds since before I was pregnant. My anxiety had gone.

I hope they do too I went on meds when I fell preg. Came off them now though and luckily I'm doing okay. Doctor made a referal to see someone but it never came through! I have awful days still some times no matter how much I love my bubba. My poor OH has to put up with so much!

I really hope they induce you, for your sake Hun. I know it's not nice at all. I can't help loads but I know it's nice to know someone atleast understands how your feeling xxx

I have clinical depression and anxiety but haven't had the induction talk yet as I'm not near my DD. I can't ever have meds for it as I had a stroke at 23 and so just have to cope without them, which is horrific! Especially now as I'm getting closer to the end. To top it off I suffer for the first 3 months of my pregnancy due to come off my stroke meds and it feels like I'm losing my mind so I do sympathise with you, feels awful to not be controlling your brain. I pass most days in some kind of zombified haze.

Thanks everyone. Chezzz, isn't it awful I'm so disappointed. I was so sure I'd get through this pregnancy and be fine. Have felt 100% the whole time except now. If I took meds they'd take at least 2 weeks to work so there wouldn't be any point anyway. I'd rather just avoid them as I know it will go away once LO is here. Plus if I took them I'd only be worrying more. Can't win.

Xx
