A few weeks ago I started meditating again. I realized I was getting way too anxious about this pregnancy and whether or not it would work out, and I needed a tool to help. When I’m not pregnant and nauseous, I would turn to some sort of exercise. But I also at times have meditated and for my personality that can fall into a pit of worry deeper than I would like, meditation is great. With my newer less-active self, this is just what I needed to deal with anxiety in pregnancy. I put together some free online meditations that I found and several of these I have been using regularly. One of my favorite websites for guided audio meditations is Meditation Oasis. It gives you a small description of each meditation as well as the length of time of the meditation, and the meditations are very well guided.
I organized the ten meditations I chose by trimester. Some naturally fell into a particular trimester (such as meditation for morning sickness), while others would fit well into any trimester. Others are not pregnancy-specific and are great for any time.
