    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    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.
