I have been thinking for a few days that I might be pregnant but I can't get a test until tomorrow. But even if I am not, I am thinking I might want another one. Am I crazy for wanting another one? I have 7 children and yes they are all my own, and I am 37 years old. I just love kids. But I know with my meds and bipolar it may not be a good idea. in fact probably a really bad one. So am I crazy? (aside from the obvious, lol) <!--IBF.ATTACHMENT_292508-->

I don't think you're crazy. You're obviously someone who can handle a lot of kids and clearly love them. You've had children since your diagnosis before, haven't you? How did it affect you? How do you typically feel during your pregnancies go? My one concern is that you're fairly isolated without a lot of help.

Hey. You are not crazy! What a blessing children are! I absolutely love and adore my daughter and am praying that I can bring my son into this world alright as well with what all is going on. I told my husband that I would love to have more but I honestly don't know if I could again. I am 37 years old as well. This pregnancy has taken a toll on me already at 26 weeks with all of the complications that started a few weeks ago. It is scary for me right now. But I would love to have another! You can do it. You already have several times. You know your limits and how to handle being bipolar and pregnant. You have my support too!

Let us know.

I did three pregnancies without a diagnosis of BP. I had no idea what in hell was wrong with me. You're lucky to know and that doctors understand nowadays.

Best wishes for a happy life with the existing kids and the possible new one!
