As I begin my third trimester, I'm beginning to dread going to the hospital to give birth. Even though my labor and delivery went well (considering the PIH complications)the first time, I began getting anxiety attacks while in post-partum recovery (also suffered Post partum depression and anxiety for about 8 months after). My BP was higher then than it ever was (probably a rebound effect from the stopping meds), and I was convinced I was going to die!! So far this pregnancy has been so different, and healthier. Am I nuts to feel this way? I've been thinking about asking my OB to put me on Zoloft (which I was on for about 16 months abter delivery #1) as a precaution right after the birth. Has anyone else had a similar experience?
