Pregnancy and BPD
« on: December 27, 2014, 04:48:01 PM »
Kind of hoping some people here will have have BPD and/or experience of this.

I have BPD and after recently becoming engaged to my bf of 9 years we have decided that we would like to start a family.

However, I am worried about how well I will/won't cope with the pregnancy - the hormones, med appts, anxieties around the baby/being a parent, coping on less meds. My psych has also said he would want the perinatal mental health team to be involved, that social services may also be alerted due to my diagnosis (though he and my OT have both said that they don't feel that ss involvement will be at all necessary).

How have you found it all? What has helped/been particularly difficult?

Absolutely set that we definitely want a baby but I have so many worries.....  :help:
