Our expert says:
I would ALWAYS recommend starting CBT therapy as soon as possible when pregnancy is in the opffing, in someone with Depressions or Bipola Disorder, as it is effective and entirely safe in pregnancy. It sounds as though you are developing a depression in relation o and stimulated by the hormonal changes of pregnancy, so there's nothing awful about you losing your desire for the child at this particular stage --- that's the depression talking, not you yourself.
I don't agree with nor respect the wholly negative comments you report from the second shrink, which sound inaccurate and totally unhelpful. See a more helpful and less negative psychiatrist again for a fresh assessment, and advice on managing this particular bout of depression at this particular time. A baby may indeed run some risks from some meds, but also runs some risks from a severely depression and un treated mum ; also, risks cary according to the particular stage of pregnancy, so there can be reasonably safe options available.
Don't allow the Depression to seduce you into feeling guilt over natural reactions to this unpleasant illness. You are as innocent as the baby.
