I liked zyprexa a lot, but went from plain obese to morbidly obese in 2 months...I am lucky to be able to take lamictal.
I actually wasn't dx with BP II until after DD was born. My pregnancy with her was HORRIBLE. At one point DH kicked me out of the house for a couple of days b/c I was in such a rage all of the time he was afraid I'd hurt DS. (I've never told anyone that before except my therapist!) One doc told me that his depressed patients tend to get better during pregnancy but the bipolar ones go totally off. He thought I was "just" depressed and dismissed my comments about my rabid angry behavior. I have a better pdoc now.
There are a number of reasons we're not having any more kids, but this is one of them. I'm glad to hear others can manage during pregnancy.
