Any body else dealing with extreme stress and depression?

I'm 14 weeks pregnant and I'm feeling suicidal. My husband is dealing with a lot of work stress, to the point where he needs to find other employment. There are no job options out there and we don't know what do to. My job is very strenuous and I won't be able to work once I'm in the later months of pregnancy so we have to rely entirely on one minimum wage income to support ourselves and the baby. I have a history of depression and anxiety but in recent years it has been much better, until now. I just don't know how to stop feeling so overwhelmed and panicked.

Please talk to your Dr right away, especially if you have history with depression. I have also had a history with depression and attempted suicide so I know first-hand how important it is for you to talk to your Dr right away. I am 29 and 16 weeks pregnant with my second child, I have an 11 year-old daughter. I understand the stress you are going thru right now as I am in the same boat. My husband is having to change careers in order to take care of our family. I am unable to work at the moment as I am a high risk pregnancy and am in bed rest. I'm here if you want to talk or vent.

How are you doing?
I'm feeling a lot of work related stress right now too, and I'm worried it'll impact the baby.
