Anyone with a history of depression is at an increased risk of developing PPD. Because you already had it, it is even more likely. Start with therapy as soon as you can and inform your doctor of your history, so that he can accurately assess you. If you found a medication that worked on you before, it may be a good option for you to start again (if you are not breastfeeding), after you have the baby.
Just keep an open dialogue going, and be sure to talk about it if it does come up.
