Update on 2nd pregnancy

linzi686 profile image

Hi everyone, just an update. Our little girl, Sienna, arrived a week ago today, all good so far other than a little anxiety and a bit teary on day 4, which I've been supported with by the perrinatal mental health team. Im making sure u get lots of sleep, so went on to bottle feeding after 2 days as breast wasn't working well, I'm also going for walks and having me time along with asking for help from hubby if I need it. It's so nice to be able to experience this again minus the racing and delusional thoughts. I was put on 2.5mg of olanzapine at 36 weeks pregnant then upped to 5mg after delivery.

So happy for you, linzi686. She looks gorgeous, and I'm really glad you've stayed well thus far. xx

Aww that’s so nice to hear you are remaining well second time around- congratulations she is gorgeous!! I am planning a second pregnancy after having PP in 2016 with my daughter, I have an pre-conception appointment with perinatal mental health pshychiarist to discuss medications etc. I am really scared and anxious about this but also excited. Really nice to hear positive stories of second pregnancies with mums remaining well x

A big congratulations to you on the birth of your beautiful daughter linzi686 . I hope you are keeping well! I am also on olanzapine (5mg) and I have a question for you. Do you find that 5mg of Olanzapine dulls your emotions compared to when you were on 2.5mg? I have convinced myself that I have dulled emotions but I might just be experiencing a difficult period and I might be blaming the olanzapine. Thought I'd reach out to other mums and see if they have experienced a difference between the two doses. Thank you x
