    a greeksmom we are exactly the same far along in our pregnancies, why are you pushing for May?

    Inic1970 - As pregnancy makes everyone hormonal and cry more, then 95% of babies would be harmed by what you have just described!!
    Baby will be fine and you will feel a lot better getting it all out through crying than keeping it in

    It's perfectly okay to cry and all, nothing happens. I have major fights with my husband now and then too, and the hormones (what don't they cause?) make us really high-strung, thinking that this is the end of the world. But it isn't and things will get better tomorrow, which is a whole new day. Plus we pregnant women have loads on our plates (and our bellies). We are not saints, so I say we can let it out as much as we want! Keeping it inside would be worse, I think. Take care!

    During early pregnancy, and yesterday ha, I've had my share of arguments & crying spells,
    all thanks to the raging hormones.
    Its okay to have some stress once in awhile, and crying spells won't hurt your LO,
    believe me, I've had quite a few of them. (crying spells, not children this is my first haha)

    they say that if you are super stressed while pregnant baby can sense that and can make them a stressed out person...now when i had my first i was 16 going to school working 2 jobs and trying to find time to still see oh i was a stress ball. i didnt believe what my doctor told me when he said that, and sometimes i still dont but my little monkey is now almost 6 and she is very stressed, i feel so guilty and bad for her and when she gets stressed she freezes and refuses to do anything, pretty much like any other 6 year old... anxiety disorders run in my family though and have played a big part in this i think, i had my first panic attack when i was 7 years old! i am very certain that your LO will be 100% perfect
    dont worry about it your baby will be fine

    Baby can pick up on stress and upset, although i wouldnt worry too much. A little stress wont do much, plus if you need to cry let it out, holding it in could make you stress more. Im sure baby will be ml though hun.
