I was on the lowest dose of lexapro before I got pregnant and it was a complete life saver. I weaned off during the first trimester and was hanging in there, but the past month has been stressful at home, and now, at 17 weeks, I'm looking for a new midwife when I thought I finally figured out my home birth plan, and everything is piling up on me.
Last night I woke up to pee and was dealing with what I thought was my normal insomnia, but it spiraled into racing mind and heart, and escalated into the scariest panic attack I've ever had. I'm still crying about it this morning (prob doesn't help that I've been awake since 3:30).
I eat well and take a prenatal as well as fish oil and vitamin c. I'm open to more supplements or diet changes. But am also feeling like the sooner I can manage this, the better I will be able to meet my needs and those of my family. I'm a total wreck right now.
I've left messages for my therapist and psych, but wanted to know if anyone else has decided that the effects of illness are more dangerous than the risk of medication? I am struggling with the decision but I know I cannot have another night like that. I was terrified in a way I never have been before.
Thanks for your support, wise mamas.
