Hello everyone. I am just looking for a little advice, or reassurance. I was diagnosed with BPD about 10 months ago, but have suffered for years. I am currently 10 weeks pregnant and very concerned about how this disorder, my behaviors, might affect my child. I am concerned that once this child is born I won't be able to treat him/her differently than others, with regards to the variation of moods, and impulsive behavior. I know I would never physically hurt my child. I am more concerned with not showing them a healthy way to handle the world. I have a therapist now and she says not to worry that once this baby is born I will not be able to act this way around him/her. She says something will "kick in" and help me to kind of modify my behaviors for the sake of this child. But I haven't been able to do that for other important people in the past. So my question is this, have any other BPD parents dealt with this? Is it true things will just fix themselves once the baby is born? Thanks for reading!
