i was never diagnosed with pre-e, but my daughter was stillborn 11/17/02 at 39w5d (they were never able to definitevely determine why she died).
i still have nightmares. not often anymore, but i do still have them. othertimes, i get totally caught up in the tragic memories of when she died - trying to make her move, not finding her heartbeat, seeing her lifeless body on the u/s screen, FEELING the eerie heavy stillness in my belly, labor, delivery, her funeral. sometimes, i just get overwhelmed with the grief of missing my daughter and cry.
Gloria is right. people think that after so much time, we get over it. but as mother's we don't ever get over it. we just learn to live with it. my mom lost her son to SIDS when he was 3 months old. that was over 30 years ago. she still cries sometimes.
i'm sure it's possible that the medication you're taking could have something to do with your depression, but it's also quite possible that you're just sad! only a dr can make that determination.
