    I'm a little bit worried, I have my nans funeral on Weds, I'll be 37+1 and my worst fear will be to go into labour. My OH won't be there (works for my parents so unfortunately has to work so they can go) and I'm just so paranoid that something could happen and I don't have him there. :nope:
    Could being upset etc bring it on at all?

    Thanks :)

    Bless you, sorry to hear you're having to do this. It's hard enough any time but being pregnant is extra tough. I think you'll be fine baby-wise, just wanted to send hugs. xxx

    I think stress probably has the opposite effect hun. My midwife said although they don't know the reason we go into labour, it usually happens when mum is relaxed and happy. I guess it makes the baby feel safe enough to make an appearance.

    Sorry to hear your sad news though and hope the day isn't too difficult for you :)

    Since I haven't gone into labor after the terrible last two weeks I had then I say absolutely not. You'll be fine :flower:
