It seems I picked the wrong time to be pregnant.. this year has been just horrible stress wise.. my granny died a month ago, yesterday our dog of 7 years died (quite unexpectedly), my dad has had an op for stomach cancer (advanced stage) and now just waiting for what will happen next.. I am away from home and have a rubbish job with lots of stress there.. When will there be good news? I am worried about my mom too, she is alone now that granny and dog have gone and I can't even be there to support her. She seems depressed and I cry way more than normal. Can it harm the baby? I feel guilty for doing this to the baby but just can't help myself. I had stress in my life before but never that much Pointless thread, i realize, but had to get it all out. Hope I didn't upset anybody People keep telling me how I should not stress and try to be happy, but then I would not be a human being if I don't get upset about somebody close to me dying... Sorry girls, really feeling down after the news about our sweet dog passing away. She was like a baby to my mom, poor thing.
