grateful mother to DD, 1/04, and DS, 2/08
Seconding the vote for flax seed oil. I went off the wall irritable with dd, started supplementing with other stuff- nothing. I tried evening primrose oil and suddenly my mood swings were back under control: and with trial and error, I found fso worked better (I use epo when I run out, though.). It's not just during pregnancy, you need it throughout breastfeeding as well.
If I'd thought about it before, this would probably have stopped the problems I had with PND with the boys. It's got to be significant that the only child I supplemented my omega 3's with is the only one I didn't have any depression with, surely?
