Hold on till you can fully take stock of this unexpected situation, and rediscover your best resources to deal with this. Sounds odd, and most unfortunat to have fallen pregnant again so soon, and while on contraceptives.
Asd cheer up says, it may be more work in some ways, but at least it may be a bit easier than going through it in two entirely separate periods. And do se a good local shrink to check on that depression, and select the best way of managing it now and later --- maybe ceck if CBT counselling is available, as it's especially suitable for use during pregnancy.
