Objectives: We aimed to assess anxiety in pregnant women. We also investigated the probably associated factors in anxiety in pregnant women. 
Methods: This research is a descriptive correlational study. The samples (209 pregnant women) were recruited by non-probability (purposive) sampling, and the study instrument consisted of the Hamilton anxiety rating scale and interviews with mothers. The obtained data were analyzed by SPSS softwer, version 25.
Results: Most respondents were 17-26 years old, and around half were satisfied with their income. Studies show a significant positive correlation between anxiety and gestational age, watching TV, sleeping, and drinking tea. 
Discussion: Anxiety increased with mothers working and with mothers with low socioeconomic status. About 26.3% of pregnant mothers had severe anxiety. Some habits like drinking tea, sleeping, and watching TV increase when anxiety increases.
