If you’re in the first trimester still like I am, it’s normal for your mind to be racing. Every little twinge and discomfort makes you feel uneasy and worried, and the people around you telling you to “stay calm” are probably not helping, either. What does help me stay calm are a couple of things, including affirmations, the benefits of which I’ve already written about. And while I wholeheartedly support writing your own pregnancy anxiety affirmations, ones that apply to your specific feelings and worries, I’m fairly certain you’ll find these to be helpful, too.
For an in-depth look into anxiety and exercises to beat it, here’s my guide along with printables.
If you find that you’re still feeling anxious, schedule a coaching session with yours truly, a psychologist and a mom.
