Thank you so much for both of your responses. I'm so happy you both had positive experiences.
I thought I was going to hear a bunch of bad experiences, so I'm very relieved.
Do either of you know how long before you started trying that you had to stop your medication? And do the prenatal vitamins interact with the medicines?
I know for sure I'd have to stop the trileptal. Everything I've read about this medicine and pregnancy is negative.
Ellie when did you start to notice the bipolar in your children? I am concerned about that also. My dad is also bipolar, so I'm sure that's where I got it from. I hope I don't pass it to my children. My dad carries a lot of guilt that I have it, like he feels like it's his fault. I always tell him it's not.
Do you think being a mom is harder when you have bipolar? I also have a good support system. I have my hubby and my parents & his parents, both will be over joyed.
