Hi, my husband has come round to the idea of us trying for a second baby and is happy for us to try from now onwards however I'm curious to know if we are maybe trying to soon? I've been properly well now since April 2015 with no frequent mood fluctuations (I was cycling every few days from high to low). I still have had one noticeable mood swing into mild hypomania but I received a diagnosis of bipolar after I had pp so I guess that was to be expected. I've now switched meds to Lamotrigine and Sertraline and these seem to be working well for me. My psychiatrist said I can take both these during pregnancy so I will continue to do so right through the birth and beyond. I'm just wondering how long you guys waited for. I don't have access to a perunatal mental health specialist like I had in the UK as I'm temporarily living abroad so I can't really ask them about this. I will return to the UK for the birth to make sure I have access to the services I need just incase I get I'll again but that dosent help me in the mean time with my question. I know each of us is different but just curious to know what others did. Thanks
