Depression during pregnancy

I experienced PPD after my last delivery, but I'm in a serious funk right now.  I'm wondering if I could be depressed during my pregnancy this time around.  Anyone else just feeling down and blue while pregnant?  How did/are you treating your depression?

HUGS to you, Jan.  It can be so difficult dealing with all of these emotions during pregnancy.  I hope you've talked to your care provider about how you've been feeling. There are so many options to help with depression during pregnancy.  I hope that you find an option that works for you.  Gentle (((HUGS))).

Although I do not have personal experience with ppd, I know that a lot of health professionals recommend/distribute the Depression During and After Pregnancy booklet available online at http://www.ask.hrsa.gov/detail_materials.cfm?ProdID=3924
