Im sorry to hear that hun, and no i dont think stress affects the baby as much as they say it does. I know when i was pregnant with my son i was constantly depressed,due to money issues and what not. But i think you will be alright,your grieving no need to hide it.

The only thing you need to really worry about emotion-wise is anger or frustration. It can raise your blood pressure. If you are sad, you probably aren't in any way going to harm your baby. The chances of harming your baby that way are slim to none.

I hope you feel better soon!

No. I've just lost my Mum, my closest person ever and Dr said it wouldn't affect baby.

I don't think stress can affect baby too much...I was stressed the whole time my last pregnancy and didn't get to move into my home or start on the nursery until a week before he was born. It was horrible.
But anyway, like bababel said, anger and frustration can raise your blood pressure a bit. But if it gets to the point of depression; decreased apetite, weight loss, etc. i'm sure wouldn't be very good for baby (or you.) Take care!

You shouldn't worry about stressing. That adds stress too. Just take it one day at a time. I try to remove myself from situation. With situations of death, I try only to think of happy times. I lost a lot of friends from high school(we lived near really bad country roads) and two grandpa's. One during my last pregnancy. I dialated two centimeters because it was a stressful time for me. I had contractions five min. apart for two weeks. I did have the baby right around 37 weeks so everything worked out. I am one of those people who holds onto stress though if I don't release it. My advice is to do things everyday that make you happy during this. Take care of yourself. Good luck and I hope you feel better.

Im so sorry to hear your having such a rough time. Everyone before me has given excellent advice so there isn't much else I could add. Just take care of yourself, it's ok to be sad so don't feel guilty about it. Your baby will be fine I'm sure. Thinking of you xx

they haven't proved anything, but i actually watch an interesting documentry on how your life effects baby. they looked at women that were pregnant during WW2, the recession and other stressful situations. however, i kind of disgree, i think all babies have their own personalites, i cry a lot too , i'm sure baby is fine! just try to stay positive and enjoy your pregnancy
