When I was trying to get pregnant the first time, my doctor did a risk/benefit analysis with me. Basically it really depends on how severe your depression gets and how well you can control it without the meds. I weaned myself off the prozac then and was able (for the most part) to keep it under control since then. However, I had some depression issues that I was having some difficulty dealing with earlier in THIS pregnancy and my new doctor would have put me on meds again if I felt I needed them. Only you and your doctor know how bad you get when the depression hits hard, but there are potential risks. *hugs*
