Hi ladies, I will keep this short and sweet as I know this can be a very sensitive subject (and a public forum is not the place to go into details!)
I'm 8 wks PG and found out that I was pregnant pretty much 12mths to the day that I attempted to take my own life. So far I am coping quite well mentally and feel particularly blessed that now I am part of creating new life. I have a wonderful husband and very attentive obstetrician to help me through all the changes that are coming my way. But I just wanted to hear from any other women who have lived through something like this and/or major mental illness, have come out on the other side and would like to share their positive pregnancy experience.

Sounds like your life is heading in the right direction ::cheers::
I've attempted suicide before, back when I was 20, I'm 27 now and am just getting back on track with my life.
I suffer depression and going through the pregnancy was hard with all the changes that happen.
Fortunately I did have a very smooth pregnancy, birth on the other hand was difficult and ended with an emergency c-section.
