Anxiety disorder , depression and pregnancy

I have struggled with anxiety and depression for most of my life now. I am 26 years old and I have just found out I am pregnant. My "normal" none anxious mind is happy but as soon as te anxiety kicks in (which is mostly all the time) all I can think is negative thoughts. 

I'd always wanted to be a mum every since I was little, until recently I thought that it would not be fair for me to have a child with my anxiety and depression. Having a child would mean I no longer have my get out of life escape if I need it. 

the past two days have been awful. I started experiencing morning sickness (being sick is one  of my triggers for panic) so I have spent all of yesterday feeling awful and having panic attackS. 

Does anybody have any similar experiences?
