CHECK OUT MY BLOG-BLISSFULLY BIPOLAR MOMMY
First off I wanted to share this picture of my ridiculously comical child trying to fit his (nude) body into this poor hippo toy. He took off like a bat outta hell during his diaper change and tried to hide from me in here...this is how far he got =)
So, I have been updating my pages and mental health links and info and what not and decided I wanted to write a post about prenatal depression. I suffered from this during my first trimester and it was so incredibly frightening. At the start of my second trimester I started Wellbutrin and it definitely made a world of difference. I remained on this until 7 weeks post pregnancy.
I was never warned about prenatal depression, nor had I ever heard of it. Being a sufferer of Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, a large contributor to prenatal depression, and also having a history of serious depression as a teenager I was at a very large risk of this.
I just wanted to put a list of some sites for anyone who feels they may suffer from this, know of someone who is, or is just curious to learn more about this not commonly spoke of illness. Here are some resources to check out!
