Anti-depressents and pregnant

Can you be put on depressents while pregnant? My hormones are worse than ever. So much anger and problems have come out. This is my 3rd pregnancy and has never been this bad. However, I've never been on meds. I've been raped, dad's passed away, and so on. Just wondering what to do. I know something is wrong and it's beyond carrying a baby. I want my baby I love my kids. But, I need help. I do nothing but cry, want to hurt myself, go crazy, and it scares me. It's worse than ever, and if I'm this way at 5 weeks, what will 40 weeks bring? Thanks everyone...
