anti anxiety medication

I gor diagnosed with depression and anxiety and age 16, three years later here I am and pregnant! I stopped my medication as soon as I found out (20 mg citalopram) but my anxiety and depression are so bad, I really feel like I need my medication. Has anyone taken citalopram or another antidepressent while pregnant? pros and cons? hellpp :(

Zoloft is an option. My ob says thats all they rec with pregnancy.  U should take something if needed so u aren't as stressed. The less stress the better for u and the baby.

I have been on antidepressents for about 5years and also stopped when got pregnant. It was hard to begin with but i think part of it is pregnancy hormones. It does get better..... But if you have any selfharming thoughts then you should concider getting back on antideppressents again. Good luck.
