Had horrific pnd after my son which lasted about a year but made an almost full recovery.

I'm pregnant again now and tearful, anxious, depressed etc I've got no energy, wake up with horrible anxiety every day and several times throughout the night and just generally feel really blah about everything.

I know how quickly this can turn into crazy bad depression though so I just feel really worried. I'm already taking ADs and under the mental health team but they're just so shit I just think what's the point in telling them.. but that's probably the depression talking.

Please help sad

Hi,
I've not had PND but I did develop an anxiety disorder whilst pregnant. Please mention it to your team! These things are best tackled sooner rather than later. My gp handled it really badly (forgot to refer me) so I had to wait ages for treatment.
