Did you take anti-depressants while pregnant?

I went off of anti-depressants when I found out I was pregnant and it has been really really difficult. Debating whether to go back on prozac now that I'm almost in the second trimester and weighing the benefits and risks. No you are not my doctor. Yes I've consulted both doctors (shrink and OB) who advise taking the prozac.
However I'm nervous about breastfeeding and the other risks. There was a question on here a while ago where folks shared what they took and the outcomes (I think all were positive). Please share yours. One question I have - do you know of a link between taking anti-depressants (particularly prozac) with the development of autism? Thanks in advance for sharing your experience. If you can find the previous mefi question that addresses this topic that would be a bonus.
