How far along are you?
8+2How is your mental health these days?
Poor. Combination of anxiety/depression, getting off my meds, and the gloomy weatherWhat is one challenge that that you are currently facing on your mental health/pregnancy journey?
I had just started getting treated for my anxiety and depression in December. Lexapro wasn't working very well but it was better than nothing. I was on a waitlist to see a psychiatrist. Because of my history of MCs, I was told to quit cold turkey when I got my BFP. I am anxiously awaiting that call from the psychiatrist because I'm hoping they can prescribe me something that I can take during pregnancy.
What is one thing you’re doing for yourself?
I'm treating myself. Fresh haircut. Fresh wax. Taking the time to give myself manis and pedis. Extra long showers and all the time I need to do hair/makeup. I really let myself go over the years because trying for a baby was so exhausting with DS and he's exhausting now that he's here!!! But I feel so much better when I look better.
