First Trimester insomnia, morning sickness and anxiety

by Christie

Hi Wray,
I'm 33 years old and 7 weeks pregnant with my second baby. I was hospitalised with severe ppd after my first and was on yaz BC for most of my life prior to this.
I was expecting to get ppd again with this one and was going to do progesterone therapy but all the symptoms actually came back in my first trimester!! This freaked me out as I was prepared for it after the birth but not while pregnant!! I started using a dollop of your cream and my symptoms flared up. I then bit the bullet and increased to 200mg with one dose in the am and one in the pm. This helped! My anxiety and nervousness eased off so I could function and I started sleeping better. BUT a week later my nervousness is increasing again and I'm sleeping poorly :(
Is my estrogen rising even more causing symptoms to come back? What dosage do you recommend for me and is it safe for my baby to be on a higher amount of progesterone so early in the pregnancy? Thanks so much for your time. Any help would be appreciated as the docs are talking antidepressants while I'm pregnant which I do NOT want to do :(
