You will need medications and psychoeducation  ( ideally with your partner) to understand the normal bodily changes accompanying pregnancy. Also there are some medications which needs to be avoided during pregnancy. Especially the antipsychotic medications. So I suggest you to have a detailed discussion with your doctor before planning for a child

My 18 year old high school son needs help and testing for hereditary diseases which he has symptoms of from both sides of the family, including ADD or ADHD, Bi-Polar, Aspergers, and Paranoia Schizophrenia. Also, possibly dyslexia and/or the math version may be affecting him, (he is home-schooled and beginning 11th grade) and he has sleep disorder problems. He has already been diagnosed with anxiety. Does St. Lukes Quakertown test for these ailments I have listed? We live close by, and like St. Luke s that cared for my husband, and son s father before he died in August. Traveling is difficult for me because I am handicapped. Both my son and I may be helped by some grief counseling.
