My wife is feeling anxious during her pregnancy. This is our first pregnancy. Is this normal? 


Any other symptoms I should look out for?Anxiety and even some moodiness  are normal emotions that all mothers experience during and after pregnancy. But some women may have an increased risk of depression if the anxiety is left unrecognized. The warning symptoms  are as follows:

Low energy levels

Breathlessness

Chest discomfort

Headaches


Mental or Emotional symptoms

Poor concentration

Irritability

Feeling weepy
