Trying for a baby on sertraline

Taking sertraline may make you feel dizzy and restless, and may affect your eyesight, when you start taking it.
Sertraline can make you feel very restless in the first few weeks that you take it, and may affect you when you sit or stand still.
If they are more than a month away, however, you might find that it is better to start sertraline to improve your motivation to study. Taking sertraline may affect your concentration to do things like riding a bike, competitive gymnastics, or anything else that needs a lot of focus.
It might be best to stop such sports for the first few days, until you know how it affects you. If you feel like a zombie, and you’ve been taking it for more than a month, you can go back to the doctor and see what else you could do. The side-effects of sertraline might put a strain on your friendships and relationships, especially in the first few days of taking it. You should then be getting the good effects of sertraline, and that should improve your relationships in itself. They could help you to understand whether the medicine changes your behaviour, or gives you side-effects (sometimes it is hard for us to see it ourselves). The good effects of sertraline may, after a while, have a good effect on your sex life as your mood lifts and you become interested in life and relationships again.

Women who are trying to get pregnant should not take sertraline unless they have talked about it with their doctor (see below for more information). Please consult the UK Teratology Information Service’s Best Use of Medicines in Pregnancy (Bumps) website for more information, including specific information on sertraline in pregnancy. If you drink a lot of coffee, cola drinks or caffeine drinks when taking sertraline, it can put you at a higher risk of getting serotonin syndrome.

I really don't need to worry any more than I already do and would just like to get some of your opinions on what you all know about sertraline (zoloft) and pregnancy.
I know being on sertraline has helped me relax because for the past many months, my cycles have been 52 days long and the fertility specialist doesn't think I even ovulated during those cycles.
I consulted the world's leading expert on mood stabilizers during pregnancy (Jennifer Payne at John's Hopkins) and she okayed me for treatment with all SSRIS and several other mood stabilizers.
From my (admittedly primitive) understanding of who gets what SSRI, Lexapro is used for people whose primary complaint is depression, and Zoloft is used when anxiety is the bigger problem. It might be best to stop doing these things for the first few days, until you know how it affects you and your body gets used to it. If they do not, and this is a problem for you, go back to the doctor and see what else you could try.

When deciding whether or not to take sertraline during pregnancy it is important to weigh up how necessary sertraline is to your health against the possible risks to you or your baby, some of which will depend on how many weeks pregnant you are. For some women, treatment with sertraline in pregnancy may be the best option for both mother and baby.
40mg is considered the max for Lexapro, but I'm pretty sure that the max for Prozac is double that. In fact, because my panic attacks have been getting worse lately, when I see my shrink Tuesday I'm going to ask if Lexapro is still the right choice for me. However, a recent group of studies has indicated that there is a serious risk for PTL in women whose mood disorders are left untreated. I needed to hear it from someone who has actually used sertraline and successfully had a healthy baby. I can only speak for myself, but I know I would be devastated if I stopped my meds and then lost the baby because of PTL. My sister took Zoloft for a long time and will be going back to it when she is ready to TTC.
