I had hoped it would never happen again. But I'm going through the same thing now and I'm afraid I'll end up in the hospital again. Away from my sweet boy. I've recently increased my meds, so I'm waiting for them to kick in. Currently they are just making me more anxious, but I know that's just temporary.

Does anyone else have experience with antepartum depression? I'd love to know that I'm not alone.

Thank you!
I did with my 3rd pregnancy. I could barely function. With my 1st one, I became extremely manic--and not the "happy manic." The only one that wasn't so bad was my 2nd one.
