anxiety during pregnancy

hello. im having my second child due august 9. after my first child i started getting panic attacks and feeling anxiety all day. i went on meds got rid of it. a few months b4 i got pregnant this second time it came back, and was trying to get rid of it on my own without meds. now i am pregnant, very happy to be, but it seems like its increased my anxiety. what bothers me most is i kinda feel dizzy and spacey headed all day. i felt that way before i got pregnant but is it normal for pregnancy to increase my symptoms a little bit? i go to the doc on the 17 of jan. but was hoping for input from people who may ahve been through this.

Re: anxiety during pregnancy

i suffer from General anxiety disorder and treat it with meds when i am not pregnant but thank goodness during my pregnancies it gets better and i don't have to take anything and breathing tecniques usually due the trick when it does act up.
it does act up in the beginning of my pregnancies for all the normal reasons and my heart gets to beating pretty fast and i get nervous but i just try and focus and i get through it. i wish this would work when i am not pregnant.

Re: anxiety during pregnancy

Well I didnt have anxiety until after my second chile (about a yr later) anyway I tried meds in the past it wasnt for me, however I did do alot of CBT and talk therapy and it went away. When I got pregnant this third time my anxiety was all over the place I found that I knew just when my hormones shifted, I also found that around the beginning of a new trimester it would be bad...I still didnt do meds I began seeing a counsellor and actually found out alot of stuff about myself and when I become pregnant...its a long story however I fine now, Im ean dont get me wrong I get ansy at times but its been pretty much under control since I started seeing someone~ Good Luck, but yes it got worse with all the hormaonla fluctualtions, with some peopl I heard it goes away, not me though
