Help I need this answered

Yesturday I found out that I was pregnant (not sure yet how far along I am) and today I had a huge fight with my mother (I mean huge) about a different subject and she made me so mad that I was like hallucinating and crying really hard, screaming at the top of my lungs and breathed in so deep that my stomach inhaled  really far like I was taking in a huge breath and now I am scared that somehow I hurt my baby becuase of all of the screaming, stomach movement during the argument and I am so worried that I harmed the developement in some way or I may now start to have a miscarriage. HELP!

oh no honey your baby is fine.....take advantage of the ability to inhale like that now lol, b/c when that baby starts growing, YOU'LL be the one fighting for air!!!

the baby may be able to feel your stress, and that can cause a miscarriage, but seeing a one time situation, i don't think you're at risk.....anger does things like make you see stuff that isn't there, or see "red".....this does not affect your little one at all....he doesnt see these things, only you do.....

may i ask how old you are?  and what your last period was? if you know your last period, you can do a google on "due date calculator" and usually google pulls up babycenter . com and i love that sight....it'll give you a due date(which will have to be confirmed medically of course), but at least you'll have a general idea of where you're at....also babycenter shows pregnancy week by week, and i love reading the messages it sends me about my son's developement, because it's like i "grow" with him, or i can talk about it with my fiance since i know what's going in there!

congrats on your pregnancy, and i hope you have a healthy and happy 9 months! welcome to "expecting"!

I'm 22 and this is my second pregnancy. I am under a lot of stress right now and I think it may be affecting my baby and I am worried. I need anxiety medication or something becuase this isn't healthy for me or my baby. Can my stress have anything to do with my chid's developement?

stress isnt healthy, as it can cause the baby undue stress, as well as you.....alot of women can go through tons of stress, and have super healthy babies, others can cause preterm labor and irregular heartbeats/movements with the child,....there were a few studies that showed stress could cause developement issues,but at the same time, that would mean nearly every baby would have those issues, and aside from the possibility of preterm labor, no one i know whose been under extreme stress, has given birth to a baby with development issues.....

when you set your dr's appt up, you can address this issue, and it is possible that your ob can prescribe a low-dose medication to help with the stress and anxiety.....i am assuming that the issues causing you stress are unavoidable?  are there any stresses you can remove on your own?  do you live at home with your mother? ifos, avoiding her may be hard....if you don't live with her, maybe it would be best to set aside talking to her for a bit, or to do your best to end the conversation before it becomes out of hand.....

do you know when your last period was?

Screaming and sucking in your stomach will not have any affect on your baby. However when your baby is old enough to start hearing, the screaming will startle them.

Don't panic over every little thing. Speak with your doctor about it. It's normal to be hormonal when pregnant.
