I came off my antidepressants (prozac) to get pregnant and it took 2 cycles to get pregnant and I'm now 11 weeks 5 days so I'm off the pills about 4 months overall. I can feel my moods starting to lower again 😔 I'm having mood swings feeling numb and disconnected from emotions lately again and I'm frightened. I don't want to go back on pills .. I have a mood disorder , pure OCD intrusive thoughts and depression. What is your opinions please

Hi Nickybow86,

Congratulation on your pregnancy :cheer:

Firstly be assured that mood swing and out of character emotions are all part of being pregnant, although I'd suggest you seek regular contact from your GP to monitor your own health during your pregnancy and also once the baby arrives, it's a stressful and emotion time for you so monitoring it will hopefully mean you have the right support should it be needed.

Hope you share your baby bump journey with us here on the forum.

Good Luck
