In brief: Exercise and other

A walk can really help with emotions in pregnancy.
For a lot of women, including me, emotions are more volatile, and this is normal. Crying at silly commercials is completely normal. Consider: yoga class, meditation, acupuncture, massage. Join a women's group where you can talk with other women about their experiences in pregnancy, or a book club, knitting, or sewing club. Good luck!

In brief: Carefully

Emotions can certainly run high during pregnancy.
Hopefully with a loving partner and good family/friends, you will be able to relax and "handle the stress." however, if severe issues with stress/anxiety, than discuss with your dr. As psychiatrists are trained in dealing with this, even in pregnant women. Good luck to you.

In brief: Calcium is mood food

Calcium, 500-600 mg in the morning and the same dose in the evening might be a mood stabilizer.
You need to divide it up and not take it all at once. Any calcium is fine, though you will see debates on which is 'best.' i think that if it fits your taste test, your convenience test and your finance test then it has past the test for you!
