Anxiety and Pregnancy

I have recently been to the GP regarding my severe anxiety as it was crippling me and I started to get really low thoughts of harming myself.

I have since found out I'm pregnant (I already have a DD who is 10 months) and my GP in conjunction with a consultant in antenatal and postnatal mental health would like me to take Sertraline.

I'm feeling really anxious about taking the medication and it harming the baby- I've coped with my anxiety up until now, albeit badly and I just think I should power on through until I've had the baby and then decide whether to take medication? The doctor thinks I should take it but now I'm not sure.

Has anyone else had experience of taking this whilst pregnant?!

I took fluoxetine and olanzapine whilst pregnant and my baby was fine. Pregnancy went well.
