Hi . I am 28 weeks and been on fluexotine since before getting pregnant. Have been advised to stay on them, my midwife, consultant and doctor have said that baby might have a slight addiction to them but with breast feeding will not be a problem and she will be weaned naturally off them. I wouldnt cope without them so its better that I am in a better state of mind than without. You will also be closer monitored after baby is born due to a slightly higher risk of post natal depression - but thats the future & I will face that if it comes.
Remember pregnancy can be a worry, stressful & very hormonal anyhow - would you cope? Speak to your doctor or local midwife - mine have been wonderful!
Good Luck. You will make the right decision xxx
