I am currently pregnant with my fourth child who is due in November. I have fairly good pregnancies but always suffered from post-partum afterwards. After my first pregnancy it hit me hard almost a year after the birth of my daughter, I had to be medicated. After my boys I felt the blues instantly but didn't need medication. Lately I've been feeling very low and depressed. I know I should talk to my doctor, but I've seen so many stories about children born with birth defects due to anti-depressants. Has anyone else ever experienced depression during a pregnancy? This is all new to me and for most people a very sensitive subject. I would appreciate anything you have to offer.
