Try rhythmic breathing. There is a devise called "resperate" that is an expensive machine that helps you with slow rhythmic breathing/meditation techniques. This devise is supposed to help with High blood pressure....which it does. I purchased the machine to help with my boarderline HBP, but I also find it EXTREMELY beneficial with stress and anxiety. I too have issues with depression and anxiety, and using this machine has helped immensely. "Resperate" is extremely expensive, BUT there are also other meditation CDs out there.

A few years ago, I would NOT have turned to meditation as a way to deal with anxiety, but NOW I see and understand how it works......and it REALLY does work. I used to think HOW can this help....this is a waste of time....I rather pop a pill.... But NOW...I am TOTALLY convinced that it works. It helps me on sleepless nights when my mind is racing.....It keeps me sane!!!!!!!!!!!

I have heard that St John's Wart is good for the treatment of depression. You might also want to look into counselling - there are tons of drug free treatments for anxiety and dression. I have also heard that accupuncture helps some people
Good luck

I'm not too too familiar with things. my husband has bipolar w/ major depression. so i've just kind of kept things in my brain as i came across them.

first of all, you want to make sure that you're health care provider is very knowledgeable and supportive of your decisions. I'm not sure when your depression/anxiety developed, but i'm sure you must know that with pregnancy and delivery, symptoms may or may not worsen. so you need to know the warning signs--what's normal pregnancy behavior influenced by hormones and what needs further attention. one rule of thumb, if you're unable or unwilling to do basic things, such as eat, take care of yoursefl, or your family, your might want to mention it to your health care provider. if necessary, there are many medications out there that are safe to take during pregnancy.

so, what have i come across?

watermelon, asparagus, dark chocolate, exercise (start now so it's not something new when you do get pregnant), omega 3 (there is a prenatal vitamin called Prenatale that has this. it also helps with brain development for the baby.)bananas

all these help to release endorphins and boost seratonin levels.

growing your family can be very stressful. but it sounds like both you and your husband have chosen to do this. we are expecting number 4 in one week. we found inspiration from another mom here on mamasource. she was the youngest of 5 and her dad had bipolar. good luck with everything. if you need someone to talk to, feel free to email me at anytime. :) i think that just talking about things helps tremendously. there's nothing like knowing you're not alone. also, more importantly, are you seeing a therapist? i think that many cases of depression can be handled by therapy alone. but many will go to pills alone. there's still a lot of taboo about seeing a therapist. but wouldn't you rather do that than pop pills everyday if that's all you need?

My 5-year old son has anxiety issues and just a couple of days ago, I started giving him GABA just a couple of days ago and it has just been the most amazing couple of days in I don't know how long. Before taking this supp, I would recommend that you ask your doctor if this would be something that would be good for you to take if you are planning on getting pregnant.
