Hi mysts, 
Congrats on your baby!  I remember you saying you wanted one so much, you must be very excited.  Have you gone off all your medication to get pregnant? 
Okay here's the thing dear...your dealing with a serious mental disorder BPD you know, it is so very hard to stay strong when you have so many thoughts going thru your head.  If your on your 13th week then it is safe now for your doctor to prescribe an antidepressant or whatever they feel you may need.  They usually like to hold off until your in your 3rd month (12th week) to insure baby's safety.  So please first thing tomorrow morning call your doctor and let them know what is going on with you. 
I am going to leave you some links here just incase you feel you may need them...I really hope that you dont.  Please do post again and let us know how your doing.

I took this from the information on this site and coped it here in case you have not seen it. Original post by AlwaysRosie

I have no history or background  about you so it is hard to offer sound advice, but the mention of suicidal  is a read flag for me and I think you need to contact someone  to talk to asap.

thanks guys. thanks so much for the attention.

i just wake up today. it's 10am now. i was supposed to go to hospital for my maternity appointment 8am this morning. but i didn't feel like going. i know i should but i didnt. i feel so empty inside. like there's nothing inside. like there's just a black hole inside me.

well, i stopped taking medication since december last year. i did it without my pdoc's advise. i didn't even come to any appointment for my review with him ever since. then last month i found out that i am pregnant. i was so happy. i was doing just ok until lately. i feel im going down. i cry everyday. i just feel sad and sad and sad.

maybe i should see my pdoc again. but im afraid of the effects of the meds on my baby. is it really safe??

What you are going through is completely normal.
1. Your hormones are going crazy right now,mix that with BP and you have a mess that you need to get help with
2. Your world is changing right before your eyes,and I am sure you are scared about the future.
you have got to get yourself to the doctor and you need to do it now. You are responsible for a child now and you have got to make yourself healthy for the baby's sake.
Your doctor is not going to give you something that is not safe for that baby,you really need to trust them.

Please make the appt today.

Keep us posted and stay strong!!!

Mysts, you know how serious borderline personality disorder throw in being pregnent on top of that and the hormones like Shy said and you have a whole differant ball game going on.
Your doctor isnt going to give you anything that will harm your baby.  Most medications are safe to take after your 12th week like I said before but your psychiatrist is always the best person to defer to with these matters.  Please dont let this go and wait another day feeling like this.  You dont have to suffer this way hun.
Keep posting, you know we are here for you.
