Well, think about this. beyond any possible doubt deciding on suicide CAN be an irrational thought. the issue is more whether it is EVER rational and the best option available. I have, from my years of work in palliaive medicine and hospice work, seen so many people who were saying they didn't want to continue living, when it seemed to rational in the light of their pain and other serious symptoms. But it soon became clear that what they eant, very reasonably indeed, was that they didn't want to continue living LIKE THAT --- and it was the :like this" that needed to be changed and usually could be.
Similarly, many people with serious Depression are sincerely convinced that their situation is hopeless, when it actuall isn'; so, and who, when their depression has been well treated, recover and feel so much better they're glad they didn't respond to what at the time had seemed like such a rational impulse.
So you'd need to stipulate that someone would need to have had expert treatment from the best available sources, with second opinions, etc., before deciding that their physical and/or mental state was incapable of improving. it is a guaranteed irreversible act, as kernel says, in reponse to a usually reversible state.
The reason so many people do urge you to "hold on" etc., is because they have had experience, either personally or with loved ones, of how that negative and gloomy situation CAn change.
Maybe, from your comments, though you're "not unhappy now", you haven't yet found a real sense of purpose in life that makes you feel fulfilled and useful, apart from avoiding the pain which your loss would inevitably cause to those you loved. Maybe psychotherapy to explore such issues would be worth while ?
With your pregnancy, how to ou feel with regard to the baby / child, and your prospective life as a mother to it ?
And congratulations, suicidal, on taking sensible precautions, for sensible reasons. That's rational !
