that I'm prego again.  This will be pregnancy #7, baby #4 if I carry to term.  I have a history of first trimester miscarriages.  I'm not sure how I feel, for all that I did want another baby.  I'm worried about how it will affect my depression and the borderline.  There have been some vague links (nothing concrete, primarily speculation) between risperidone and neural tube defects, which means that I have to take 5mg folic acid, which I haven't been taking because I didn't expect to get pregnant, so I'm flat-out scared.  I'm frustrated because we are always SO careful and I only have one ovary and this is the seventh pregancy, sixth unplanned pregnancy.  I even told DH that he could get The Surgery done, but he thought I said no, and so he didn't, and well, look what happened because of a big ol' miscommunication.  And then I feel guilty because a lot of couples would love to have my over-fertility problem.  And then I'm happy because like I said, I really did want another one.  Yeah.  So all these things are going through my heart, and all that's going through my head is "What will I wear to the wedding in September?"

One less thing to worry about: I talked to the psychiatrist today and she said that the only medication to worry about is Ritalin, and that one I can stop with very few negative effects.  I have also been referred to maternal fetal medicine to follow my pregnancy, which will be reassuring.  It's nice to have something off my mind!
