Lately I have been having alot of Anxiety, which makes me have trouble breathing. So I take a bath and calm down. Has anyone else dealt with Anxiety During Pregnancy? I Don't know if it just being Pregnant or if its the Holiday Season

I had a lot of early in the third trimester, it was paralyzing fear sometimes, worrying constantly about everything and very much about the health of the baby...im not sure what happened but luckily i seemed to have mellowed out a lot the past few weeks and find it easier most the time to focus on the positive...i still do sometimes get that way though, there are some situations in my life that i simply havent been able to avoid that cause awful stress...hormones definetely play a part, if you have anxiety normally it can be heightened during pregnancy, and if you are someone who gets this way around the holidays already its probably just magnified. i think you are doing the right thing by taking a bath and relaxing, thats usually what i have to do is to take time out and be alone and try my best to relax...i use some of the breathing techniques i learned in my childbirth cla__ses too, i have a feeling that im going to be using those more before labor than i ever will during! lol...i do four slow counts in breathing through my nose and four slow even counts of breathing out through my mouth...try that and see if it helps. sorry you are going through this, hopefully it will pa__s soon!

Thanks you so much for your response Margie! I have always had anxiety, but it just recently became intense. I was just worried that I am the only one going through this. I am entering the Third Trimester I am due Feburary 27

Mine was the worst around that time too for some reason, maybe there is a major shift in hormones again or something? For me it did get better though later on, I am in my 36th week now and things have been better for the past few weeks. Hang in there and try your best to relax when you can, I know it can be hard sometimes.
