anxiety and insomnia and emotions..

So I am going to be 25 weeks tomorrow.. I feel like I have been a roller coaster of emotions.. I have many crying episodes and last night I couldn't sleep.. I suffer from anxiety regularly but have not taken any of my medicine since u have become pregnant.. I feel like my emotional roller coaster is not normal.. has anyone else experienced this?

I suffer from anxiety as well and tried to refrain from my prescriptions once I became pregnant. My nurse practitioner adjusted my meds to one's that are safe during pregnancy. Talk with your doctor, stress and anxiety aren't healthy for baby either so if you can manage it in whatever way safest is best. Buspar is category B and safe to take. My OB and PCP gave approval to manage my anxiety/stress
