Hi mom of three. I too am a mom of three (to be!) With my second I took Zoloft for the 2nd half of my pregnancy. My son turned out just fine and is now a precocious 3 year old. I also am taking zoloft with this pregnancy and to tell you the truth, can't imagine not taking it. Oh, and I am 36 weeks, have been taking since 11 weeks. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply, I read the precautions from the manufacturer and it's enough info to really make you 2nd guess, I've got enough anxiety as it is !!!! You've made my decision a little easier !!

H mom of three- I had been on zoloft for a couple of years and then made a decision to get off. About 10 weeks in to my pregnancy my symptoms resurfaced. After much deliberation with my doctor, I decided to go back on it. I started with a very small dosage. At about 28 weeks, my dosage was increased at my request . I felt like the hormones fluctuations from the pregnancy were just too much for me to deal with. It was a very hard decision for me to make but my doctor was able to help me to understand that the anxiety I was feeling was harmful to my baby. I really had to weigh the risks and benefits of this situation. In my case, I am really glad I chose the path I did. I hope you are able to make the decision that is best for you. Good luck
