hi..first trimester is vital for the organ-development of foetus..but apart from this, judicious use of medication is recommended as continuing with your bipolar depression may hamper the birth weight of the baby..for anxiety, a minimum dosage of anxiolytic may well be chosen..and as you progress further with pregnancy, dose adjustment is required in a proper visit your psychiatrist regarding all these..have a healthy life
