Depression in pregnancy?

Anonymous
I'm 39 weeks pregnant and it's only just dawned on me that I've possibly being depressed a while and I haven't realised (2nd baby). Kept thinking if I was depressed I wouldn't get out of bed in the morning but then thought well I have a toddler I can't just stay in bed but once he goes to bed at 7pm I do aswell as I don't want to do anything. I distanced myself from all my friends as I just couldn't be bothered anymore. Some days at the moment I just don't enjoy being a mam as my son is totally different with me than his dad or say grandparents and also being pregnant and finding it hard to run around after him I just feel mentally drained and like my life has zero purpose. I feel like apart from being a mum I have nothing to get up for and nothing else that makes me genuinely happy at the moment which sounds ridiculous for this far pregnant. I'm worried that when I have baby I will spiral if I'm already feeling low. What do people recommend? Tell midwife and see how I get on once baby here?
