It's very reassuring to hear these posts. Im 22 and 8 and a half months pregnant with my first child. I havent been taking anything to help my SEVERE anxiety for the past 4 years, and finally was put on zanax right before I became pregnant. It really did help so much, but when I found out I was pregnant, I stopped taking them. My anxiety has been higher then ever, due to personal issues, as my fiance and the father of my child is facing 8 years in prison. The emotional stress has made my anxiety shoot through the roof, and I am finally going to see a therapist. I was weighing out the pros and cons of taking anything to help calm me down. My doctor told me there are many safe things you can take during pregnancy, just not in high doses. In my mind, I think its safer for me to be on a low dose medication then to let my son suffer along with me in my increadiblly stressed out state.
