I am currently 31 weeks pregnant with my 2nd. I had a touch of post partum after having my first but was able to manage it with exercise. I got pregnant with my 2nd at 7 months post partum and didn't have an issue again until around the 20 week mark. I went to see my physician who prescribed me prozac to take during pregnancy. I was hesitant to take it for various reasons and within a couple of days what seemed like the "baby blues" turned in to simply a string of bad days and I have been fine since. I have not taken any medication to date.
Here is my question. I am fairly certain I am going to have ppd after having this little one if for no other reason than just sheer exhaustion and the fact that after two years of being pregnant I will finally be done. Would you start on medication two weeks out from having the baby so it can be in your system and start having an effect, or wait until LO gets here to see how you react? TIA!
