(((HUGS))) I have bipolar 1 and panic attacks as well. One of my biggest problems when I'm not on meds is with insomnia. The benedryl does help, but for me it only helped for a while. I'm wondering if there is anything your doc could give you to take as needed for anxiety. I believe there are some that are safe during pregnancy. I don't know how you feel about that.

One of the things that helps me with my mood swings and anxiety, is to remember that they don't last forever. I have rapid cycling bipolar so my moods change pretty quickly. I might be extremely anxious and depressed one day but the very next day I may be happy and hyper. I just try to tell myself when I get on the down side that it's not going to last forever and try to ride it out.
