    I can really relate to you wanting baby and having to watch your friends and everyone else having one. I have 3 children - ages 4,5 and 6 and never thought I would have a problem getting pregnant. After 8 or so months trying I knew there was something wrong. I had been in a lot of pain since my third was born and finally discovered I had IC. Shortly afterwards I found out I had hypoglycemia and also started having panic attacks. Anyway, I was put on Zoloft which has helped me very much. Now I've started to try to get pregnant again but with no success. The doctor said that once I get pregnant (if I ever do) I can either get off the Zoloft for three months and go back on or stay on it. I don't know why I started getting the panic attacks - I also was under some stress and the pain was beginning to become unbearable.
    I have become obsessed with thinking about another baby. My husband and everyone else can't understand because I should be happy with the three beautiful children I have and I am! I just wanted to have this last baby and can't get it out of my head.
    Well, I hope everything works out for you. Good Luck.

    I'm sorry you're feeling down and am sending you lots of cheery thoughts!! I understand why your doctor feels you need time to recover before pregnancy. I had a pretty rough summer last year (surgery, IC, IBS) that took it's toll on me emotionally and physically. Just when I started to feel better, I became pregnant (within a couple months) and was sick all over again with pregnancy symptoms. I don't regret becoming pregnant at all but I don't think I'm as emotionally 'sound' as I would have been if I had more time in between. I think you need to do what you feel comfortable with. Talk with your doctor, ask all of your questions, and go from there. We're here for you!!

    Wanting to get pregnant

    Hi all! I have a 2 year old daughter who will be 3 in May. I really had hoped to be pregnant already, but things haven't worked that way. I started suffering from depression in September same time IC symptoms developed. I was diagnosed with IC on December 12. Then right before Christmas I started having panic attacks. Well, things are going a whole lot better now I have had only one flare since December, period related, no more panic attacks been off the meds for 2 months now. I am also fixing to go off the meds for depression. My doctor wants me to stay on elmiron for a year which will put that at December of 2001. I really wanted to get pregnant sooner and wanted some advice. She said if I just couldn't wait she would let me go off the meds earlier. Should I wait or go ahead? They think my body needs time to recover from all the stress it has had. Just wondering what some of you thought. Should I talk to her again in May or should I just wait till December? Guess I've just got baby fever. My friend just had a baby a month ago. Makes me miss a little one so much. Sorry this is so long. Just needed to give some background information.

    Thanks,

    Kristy
