When I get anxiety I usually find a quiet spot in my house, put some relaxation music, and start my inhaling and exhaling exercise. I found that to help me calm down and relax. The first time you do it it will be difficult to concentrate but the more practice the better it will be. You can also try to do some yoga for pregnant women. Or you can choose the medication option if your doctor allows you to take them. Take care and good luck
