Hi.  I had a good weekend until around 10:00 last night when my dh and I were lying in bed watching some tv and bam, I had the worst panic attack so far.  It took us thirty minutes to get me back to normal.  I don't know how much more of this I can take.  I know that the Tegretol hasn't gotten in my system good yet, I understand that.  But I just can't take anymore.  Then this morning, I felt a migraine coming on so I took the medicine and took a nap with my baby.  I feel better now but I worry which doesn't help at all.  I also read that all of this turmoil can cause premature labor.  How am I not suppose to worry?  I told my dh that two kids is the limit for us because I don't think I can go through all of this again.  Is that selfish?
Thanks for listening.  I needed to get that out.  I'm just trying to live moment by moment.  I hear my baby stirring, gotta go.

I think you are very brave even to have a second child.  You are not selfish - you have to think of your health first so that you can care for your children.  Two children is a nice family.

Missflip -- I chose not to even have a second, because one is just about more than I can handle. We all need to understand our limits. You aren't selfish. Becoming a mother is the opposite of selfish. I'm sorry you had such a bad attack. Hang in there, the medicine will get in your system soon enough.
