Hi there, I know EXACTLY how you feel. I found out I was pregnant 2 weeks after my boyfriend kicked me out. I too have always struggled with depression, and too have stopped my meds for the 1st trimester. The first few days were horrible! Everything I thought about made me cry and I just wanted to curl into a ball and disappear.. I am sorry to hear your family isnt supportive, cuz I know you need that more than anything right now. Do you have any really close friends you can turn too for support? I know you have your therapist but only seeing them once a week or less doesnt always help the other 6 days your struggeling as I know all too well.. I dont know where you live but if you wanna text/email, I would be more than happy to be your support preggo buddy! Us girls dont have to do this alone. If you really think about it, your NOT alone, you have a little bean growing inside you that will love you NO matter what you do or dont do. I know what road your traveling and hope and pray that you find the strength you need to get through all of this.. Keep your head up!

Hey so I'm new to this website and tried to figure out how to change my settings to not opt out to be emailed, and I can't figure it out.

WOW! I seriously thought I was the only going through this...my story is pretty similar I'm 27 found out I was pregnant about two weeks after I stopped seeing the babys dad because I found out he is using coke :(
I've been on Celexa for the past 4 years, tried coming off them when I found out I was pregnant and really couldn't handle it...I was a basketcase believing my baby was gonna come out deformed because the dad was using coke when I got pregnant and at one point I was in the middle of a sever panic attack and I was really considering having an abortion but thankfully it was in the middle of the night when I had these crazy thoughts and could do nothing about it. Luckily I got into see my family doctor the next day and she told me it was ok for me to stay on my celexa, she said that when the baby is born he/she will probably be cranky for a few days but nothing will be wrong with him/her. But I took it upon my self to slowly cut down the dosage and now I am taking less then half of what I was taking and hopefully I can soon stop them altogether!
The only thing different with my story is that the babys dad says he is going to be a apart of the babys life and wants this baby. He thinks that he is gonna have this baby just as much as I do...I laughed in his face and told him until he becomes clean he is not having anything to do with the baby. This is the hardest thing I ever had to do because I really do love him, it just he got tangled up in some serious crap :( and I am not being a part of it.
