Hello, I'm a 36yo mum to one DS (aged 2Y 5M). DH and I have been TTC #2 since Oct 2015. I suffer anxiety and depression and have autoimmune thyroiditis (under control).
I was taking sertraline for years for anxiety and depression but went off it to conceive DS. I stayed off it until 6M post partum, when I suffered PND and ended up in a mother/baby unit.
I am off the medication again while we TTC #2. We're on our 6th cycle (last one was a chemical pregnancy).
TTC this time around is proving really stressful and I'm struggling to control my anxiety and depression. I'm trying to remain optimistic, but the 2WWs are becoming especially difficult. It's hard to control the negative thinking and rumination
I'd love to chat with other ladies going through a similar experience.
