I'm sorry you're anxiety is so high but sadly, I can relate.
I found out I was pregnant about 2 weeks ago and at first I was OK with it ... then this past weekend my hormones must have went haywire because I ended up staying inside the entire weekend having massive panic attacks. I also have low blood sugar and was too anxious to eat so it made it worse.
I then started freaking out about how I would handle the next 7/12 months ... and if I could even do it
I went to the doctor yesterday and she took me out of work for a few weeks to get a grip & she also started me on BuSpar, which is an anti-anxiety medication that is a Class B, safest in pregnancy. It's supposed to help keep me calmer and less anxious. It's only been a day so I don't see much relief yet ...
I also am starting therapy soon and hoping that'll help.
Besides BuSpar I've heard that it's ok to take Zoloft or Prozac during pregnancy, especially if it's benefits to the mother outweigh the small risks to the developing fetus.
