congratulations to my and my partner..hehe we are expecting our 3rd child. we have just had a weekend away in northampton drag racing at santa pod as we have done for the past 4 years and found out saturday.. Very happy
havent been to the docs yet im doing this week,
i only have one worry though my other 2 children liam is 3 and chelsey is 1 and half..il have 3 kids under the age of 5 wen babys born..and my other half works away alot truck driving..will i cope..
i intend to take all the help and support thats out there this time,
even bigger problem im worried my post natal depression will come back as i had it with chelsey after she was born, have only just stopped taking my citalopram as obviously cannot take it with being pregnant again.

any advice is welcome! and congrats to everyone else thats expecting too..

diane gary liam chelsey and tiny wee bump!! xx

Congratulations!

You sound very strong and i am sure you will cope. I can see why the PND concerns you, but look at it this way, you have been there before so this time you could pick up on early warning signs if it does come back. Being honest with yourself about how you feel and always asking for help when you need it will work wonders!!

Congratulations on your pregnancy and welcome to JP

As one of the other ladies said, with your PND at least you know the warning signs and will know when to get the help if it rears its head again.

Definitely take all the support you can get with having children quite close in age, am sure friends and family will be only too pleased to help. Make the most of mother and toddler groups too and make sure you try to get out of the house at least once a day.

Hope it all goes really well for you
