Fluoxetine in pregnancy?

Just looking for some advice..
I've been prescribed fluoxetine this week by my doctor. I'm 24w pregnant with my first baby and read that this can harm your unborn baby, so I went and got a second opinion from a different doctor who said he doesn't know of any bad effects this has had on a baby, but can't guarantee anything would happen (which is understandable).

Has anyone had a baby whilst taking this medication? How was your baby after they were born (I've heard they're jittery, etc). My mum thinks I'm selfish for considering risking the babies health which is making me feel crappy and unsure on what to do.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated Smile
