Hey everyone, I haven't been around in maybe...a year and a half or more. I have had a lot happen to me; my medications have been switched around like crazy, I came off all of them but one, and I dove into alcoholism and benzo addiction. I have been clean for over 70 days now! I feel like ever since my PP episode I just fell apart and did not deal with it at all. I am just now starting to settle, and then WOW I got a positive test four days ago.
My son whom the episode occured after his birth will be turning two November 8th, and my PP two year anniversary is November 13th. Frightening to know it has been almost two years and I am just now almost finished processing what happened in 2013.
I am fearful for the aftermath of this baby. My psychiatrist knows and so does my Ob/gyn, and I am considered a high risk pregnancy due to being on lamitrogine and the risk of another PP episode. I will get my first ultrasound on the 12th!! Hoping for a girl this time around; I am in a house full of boys!!
Did anyone have a pregnancy be considered high risk after a PP episode? How often were you seen? What was your preventative plan for after the birth?
