    I have not been in your situation, but have suffered with pnd and gen depression.
    I think it best for you to visit your Dr and explain exactly what you've been feeling.
    There are alternatives, i understand, when you're pregnant - and if required, safer ad's if required.

    Please, look after yourself and get some assistance.

      I agree with melandstan. Please see your doctor. And talk to your partner if you haven't already. He may be able to reassure you. Good luck. Hope you feel better soon.

          Please talk to your doctor, I had severe anxiety with this pregnancy up until 12 weeks, heaps of issues with MIL and also mc two weeks prior to conceiving this little one.
          I was offered huge support by my ob and was sent to a clinic that dealt with primarly pnd, have you looked at PANDA it's a counceling service for women who are preggers or pnd.
          Your not alone there are people out there to help.
          Best of luck xxoo

              Myleysmummy - I know how you feel. I had severe depression as a teenager and then after DD1 ended up anorexic and depressed. The hormones in pregnancy can upset all the mental health hormones thats why you're more prone to it in pregnancy and post-natal.
              Talk to your Dr because there are some medications you can take that are safe in pregnancy or if you dont want to go down that route, if you have a friend/relative you can talk to on a regular basis to lessen the load.

              Good luck.
