Discuss this in detail with your psychiatrist. Some antidepressants are safer in pregnancy than others, and the risk might be less han going through a pregnancy if a major depression returned. Also, your depression should not be treated solely with medication, and CBT ( Cognitive Behaviour Therapy ) is highly effective in treating depresion, and could be very helpful, and protecive during pregnancy.
