I HAVE BEEN LEAST STRESSED WITH THIS PREGNANCY HOWEVER IAM GETTING ANXIOUS NOW, AND A FEW BAD THINGS ARE GOING ON AROUND ME, AND IAM A BIT WORRIED, ON HOW THIS COULD AFFECT MY PREGNANCY. DOES A MODERATE AMOUNT OF STRESS INCREASE THE CHANCE OF PRE-TERM LABOR? DOES IT HAVE TO BE EXTREME? AND IS IT A MYTH, OR REALITY. YOU HEAR SO MUCH IT'S HARD TO KNOW WHAT IS FACT OR FICTION. THANKS LADIES...AS ALWAYS YOU ARE A GREAT HELP!

I HAVE ALWAYS HEARD THAT TO MUCH STRESS CAN TRIGGER LABOUR, I MYSELF AM GOING THROUGH A HORRIBLE TIME, MY HUSBABD HAS BEEN WITH ANOTHER WOMAN AND WE ARE LOSING EVERYTHING WE HAVE MY COUSIN JUST PASSED AWAY AND IM DUE IN 6 WEEKS AND I HAVE NOTICED I HAVE HAD REGULAR CONTRACTIONS AND HAVE BEEN HURTING A LOT WORSE AND I THINK IT IS FROM ALL THE STRESS. I AM VERY DEPRESSED AND TERRIFIED THAT WHEN THE BABY GETS HERE I WILL GET EVEN MORE DEPRESSED.

Yes, it is a known fact that stress can bring on labor. The last few months have been quite tough as my husband as struggled to find a new job and because of this we have faught alot more. I am almost 28 weeks and around week 24, I had braxton hicks quite often due to the stress of our money issues and just being down right burnt out. Now my husband has found a really good job and things are back on track for us. I feel so much more relieved and my focus now is the little boy i have inside me.
