    Ok so this is a bit of a strange ask for me. I would love to try for a baby with my bloke but i just have some questions for some parents, mums to be, other people in similar situations to me

    I take 60mg Flux. a day in the morning.

    How did you feel when you were pregnant?

    Did your meds change?

    Do you think the mood swings associated with depression were amplified when you were pregnant/expecting?

    Any info would be appreciated. I'm worried about passing my depression onto my future kids - i know that may sound stupid to you but i wouldnt want them to feel like me.

    Ax

    Not stupid at all all good concerns and questions. I know there are some meds that cannot be taken through your pregnacy so while being pregnant your symptoms can become unstable some thus you have to be watched carefully by your pdoc and regular doctor. I don't know if depression is hereditary but something to ask you doctor about definetly
