Hi hun, I too suffer from anxiety. I also didn't have it during my 1st pregnancy. Some days like today I literally feel like I'm unable to function. Everything seems like a blur and I think I'm gonna die at the slightest pain. The best advice I can give is to remain calm otherwise it will get worse and possibly end up in a panic attack. I have a great book that teaches the brain how to overcome anxiety and panic attacks that I can email to you. It has helped me so much
