Pregnancy anxiety

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:

Physical symptoms:

Poor appetite

Disturbed sleep,

Low energy levels


Chest discomfort


Mental or Emotional symptoms

Poor concentration


Feeling weepy


Worrying and obsessing over things

Thinking of worst-case scenarios
