Grieving — The Bump
Late Term and Child Loss


My 6 yr old passed away on the 6th of Sep, 2 wks later i find out im pregnant. I had also suffered a mc earlier in July. Im so confused and overwhelmed. Im not taking any of my depression/anxiety meds trying to keep the baby as safe as possible but ITS SOO HARD! I miss my baby and cant imagine ever loving anybody as much as him but i know this baby is the only thing keeping me alive right now. My sons bday is coming up as well as all this damn holidays... I think i might go crazy! Anyone dealing with depression/anxiety while pregnant?

Re: Grieving

  • I'm so sorry for your loss. Have you thought about seeking some professional help? Is it ok for you to just stop taking your meds?

  • I am so incredibly sorry I am about your son.  ((hugs))  I'm not currently pregnant, so I don't speak with any first-hand knowledge on this but I know there are some anti-depressants that are approved for use during pregnancy.  I don't know what drug category they are but I would definitely speak with your doctor about it if I were you.

  • I am so very sorry about the loss of your son and sorry to welcome you to this board. Feel free to come here whenever you need. I agree with the previous posters about asking your doctor about what you might be able to take while pregnant.
