I think it's GREAT that you are being assessed as high risk. The more help and looking after you get, the better. It's possible you'll feel better after birth--it's also possible you'll feel much, much worse, and that on top of sleep deprivation could be seriously dangerous. Just think--you're doing this so you can be a good mom. You're admitting all this crappy stuff out loud so you'll be able to care for your child.

I know you wanted to avoid medication particularly while pregnant. I know several women who took antidepressants successfully while pregnant, if you ARE having suicidal thoughts, it might be worth considering again.
