My husband is gone most of the time for work (he is a OTR welder) and after a while of being home all the time as a single mother with 2 children (S@HM) it just started getting depressing. I don't have any friends out here, and I live out in the boonies, so it's not like I had any neighbors to help me get used to the neighborhood. I'm 19 weeks pregnant now and the emotions of being pregnant with my depression sent the depression on overdrive. My Dr. prescribed me Lexapro and after about a week it worked great. I wake up feeling rested every morning, I have a great outlook on life, I'm doing more with my kids, and taking better care of myself. I tried Prozac once before but it actually worsened my depression. Hope everything works out for you, if it gets worse, always let your Dr. know.

Are you home a lot with the baby. I had a mild case of post partum and my doctor surgested going back to work early. I did and within a couple of weeks I was feeling better if your not going back to work try taking a few hours a week for yourself
