Pregnancy hormones amping up anxiety?
« on: January 26, 2014, 04:26:17 PM »
So I am currently 7 weeks pregnant. My anxiety has not been this bad in years!! I am presently having rectal cancer, breast cancer, and pulmonary hypertension fears all at once!! I had to talk myself down from going to the ER today for shortness of breath and heart palpitations. I really haven't changed anything since becoming pregnant except I quit all caffeine. I continue to eat healthy and exercise daily, which used to keep my anxiety at bay, but now it's just not cutting it! Any pregnancy safe recommendations?

I'm 9 weeks pregnant and my anxiety is worse than ever, which is funny because last time I was pregnant I was actually less anxious. I was up all night having a heart attack, which I'm still having now. It's probably just gas, but even at this moment I'm contemplating going to the ER.

I feel you. I was such a worrier during my two pregnancies. I never took anything, just tried to keep myself busy. Pretty sure Zoloft is considered safe during pregnancy.
