In brief: Discuss with U MD
Taking antidepressant during pregnancy can have negative effect on baby .
U should avoid this unless u md recommend it.

In brief: Yes
With weight and hormonal changes one may need to adjust the dose during pregnancy.
However i would caution against being on any antidepressants during pregnancy as most are classified as category c or higher in risk to the fetus. Please check with your doctor to weigh the potential benefits vs the risk before discontinuing.
