(sigh) Well - that's it - I'm officially "depressed". :LOL Okay, I can laugh about it now, but this is two weeks into meds and I'm feeling much better.
However, I mentioned to my Grandma (whose opinion I respect more than anyone else in the world and is very much a mother to me) that my oldest keeps bothering me to have another babe. (Which we were intending to do anyway). She casually replied that maybe I should wait until I was "healthy" (since I confided in her about the depression). She suffered from depression for years and had 8 children and one miscarriage. But, she also said "I wouldn't prevent anything, but I also wouldn't try to make something happen" (being a good Catholic and all)
So, that got me thinking - I agree, I probably should wait until I'm a little less overwhelmed with the three I've got...but can you really stifle the yearning for another babe around? I mean, really, in just three months my oldest will be in full-day kindergarten...and the three year old will be in preschool two mornings a week. Right there will be a tremendous change from what it is now - all three home with me all day.
So, what do you think? Should someone wait until depression has been "treated" - I mean, my Dr. said this would probably be a 6 month stint of meds, so should I wait until I'm past that?
Or, should we go ahead as planned (Dr. also knows we're not using contraceptives and was supportive).
