Sorry, no I'm not pregnant. I want to be though. I deal with severe depression and anxiety, and some personality disorder. I'm ok right now but I have had some bad times, been hospitalized several times. My husband and I want kids but I'm worried my problems could affect the pregnancy and the child. I'm not asking for an answer, just some advice or wisdom on this subject. Thank-you.
