As far as I know the meds for bipolar, anti d's, mood stabilizers etc and NOT recommended for pregnancy. This is one of the reasons I say to people I cant have kids. Im lucky though, I don't want any more. Its a hard decision to make but I wouldn't feel right about being on meds such as lithium while pregnant. Best thing to do is talk to your psychiatrist and see what he says. IF (and that's a big if) I was to get pregnant again or decide TTC I would stop my meds first. It would be a hell of a 9 months but I would make that decision for my baby. Im not judging or anything I would just strongly recommend talking extensively about TTC with bipolar. As for the whole thing about bub having to be weaned off the meds . That would just not be an option. Read up on the risks associated with pregnancy and bipolar. Some of the drugs have very high chances of birth defects and toxicity in newborns. This is unfortunate for someone wanting to get pregnant but saying all this it is of course possible. It will just require a lot more monitoring etc.
