Believe it or not listening to my husband's heart beat calms my anxiety
I am having the same problem. I suffer from depression and anxiety and was on medication until I found out that I was pregnant. It was almost non-existent during the first trimester so I thought that everything would be fine but in the second trimester the anxiety came back full force. I am currently seeing a therapist regularly and have an appointment with a psychiatrist for meds now that I'm in my 3rd trimester and my OB recommended it. Unfortunately, the soonest that I can get seen is March and I'm due in February so I am trying to keep it under control. I usually do deep breathing techniques and it has helped. Good luck.
Maybe I'll talk to my doctor. I haven't talked to him before because I was embarrassed.
I suffer from panic attacks and anxiety. I dnt take any medication and I never have. When I start getting anxious I get a glass of ice water and lay down in front of a fan and breath deep breaths until I am calm again. Right now I am in my first trimester.
I myself had bad anxiety attacks. I downloaded some mediation music, and every night for about 15 mins i lay in my room, dark, no lights,a fan on...lay in bed, eyes closed and do breathing techniques. Ever since I've done this, haven't had attacks. Its been about 5 months now. And don't worry, as worrying a lot can bring on attacks. A great book to read is dancing with fear by Dr Paul foxman i believe is his name. Its super helpful.
I was embarrassed to talk to anyone about it too. I suffer from anxiety/panic attacks and was on Xanax pre-pregnancy. Obviously when I found out I was preggers, I stopped taking it and when I finally confessed to my OB that I haven't been dealing very well with my anxiety (especially since I feel that the pregnancy enhances EVERYTHING) she recommended just seeing a counselor once a week and if that doesn't help then to go on Zoloft. She said its better for mommy to be able to cope and relax and baby MAYBE be born with a cleft lip or pallet than mommy being stressed out and anxious all the time. Its really a cost vs benefit at this point.
But, with all the being said, counselling helps. Just to be able to talk about EVERYTHING once a week and they also advise me on coping techniques etc.
