This might be the case here as well, I am going insane.



Does it make you paranoid at all? Typically I only get paranoia as a side effect from the Ativan I take as a PRN for the depression, I typically can control everything with my triggers, but everything is setting me off.

I didn't get my BFP until 12 dpiui. I honestly didn't test before then because I knew I would drive myself CRAZY. It was visible without edits but I'm not sure it would have been at 10 dpiui. Besides, you may have implanted later so you haven't built up enough HCG yet. :)

No it just makes me super pissy all the time. Adderall makes me anxious and some days it's so bad I get a little paranoid.

10dpiui is not the same as 10dpo! You have to get the IUI before you ovulate so you're probably only 9dpo and it's still pretty rare to get a BFP that early.

Oh I never really thought of it that way! That's good to know. I guess I'll wait a little longer to test. Thank you!

I have read studies that adderall helps clinical depression, and I am pretty sure it does, which is why I am scared to stop it when I do get pregnant, But I have found 0 studies on the effects of it on a fetus, that are from the last 15 years.



It is a Pregnancy Cat C, which states " Animal reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect on the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in humans, but potential benefits may warrant use of the drug in pregnant women despite potential risks"



But I would stop it during the last 6-10 weeks, personally because I would worry about the child being born addicted, but with how Amphetamine/Cocaine are similar in what they affect and how, I would most likely stop as soon as I got a BFP.



What I have been able to find out about it were based on animal studies and they are pumped with higher than prescribe doses of the medication and have cardiac issues, slower developmental fetal statistical ( measuring behind a week or so ).



With clinical depression there are alot of ways to handle it, and the way the works for me is cognitive behavioral therapy, which is changing your situation and environment to work for you, and overcoming the things you cant change or handle very well, but I dont have alot of medication choices since I am resistant to most medication that are designed for depression. Anti Anxiety meds work better and quicker for me, then again you cant take those either during pregnancy. :P



Sorry if I rambled.

I have also done quite a bit of research on the effects of Adderall in pregnancy and found results similar to yours and not all that helpful lol. My psychiatrist is perfectly comfortable with using it in the second trimester. In some situations he feels it's actually safer to be on it - he has a patient who got into a car accident because she wasn't taking Adderall.



I've been really lucky though in not having to make that choice since I don't have to work. Pregnancy makes me so sick my productivity goes to zero anyway, so I don't really miss it. It's also very nice having the "luxury" of knowing when I can expect to be pregnant and give myself plenty of time to wean off. I had to stop cold turkey with my natural pregnancy and that was miserable for awhile.



Adderall is certainly "safer" than benzos, but even those are acceptable to use if the benefits outweigh the risks.

I actually dont have a "physical" dependence on adderall or any med ever, I have been able to start and stop it, My body just is more tired without it.



I have been in 2 car accidents that I am sure happened because of the ADHD, I am really surprised how much others judge you for taking the meds, or even admitting that your a Adult with ADHD or ADD.



I do notice however that if I take Ativan for a few days in a row, I get a wicked headache.

Ok gals, I need you're expert opinions because I'm worrying myself sick! On Friday it was CD12. I already posted how I only had one follicle larger than 1cm and it was 1.2cm. (Granted due to my OHSS history, we don't want super follicle growth.) Anyway, I called my message line at the RE and it said my panel from Friday was estradiol - 59.4, progesterone - 0.4, and LH - 16.2. Isn't the estradiol horribly low? Make me feel better! :(

If you only have 1 follicle I think that is normal.
Wait and see what your doc says.
