I was VERY stressed with my last pregnancy. (He was a surprise baby #3, I had just started a new job, DH and I were having issues, etc.) I actually went into the pregnancy assuming that I would miscarry. He was a VERY healthy 11 lb bouncing baby boy!

Try and reduce your stress as much as you can (talk to your employer about issues you're having, ask for help with chores at home), find ways to alleviate it when you're maxed out (go for a walk, take a hot bath), but I wouldn't worry too much about it affecting the pregnancy. At 15 weeks you're pretty established - no need to add more stress to what you're already dealing with.

Good luck and don't forget to breathe!!

I just started my new job on Monday (shhh... I really shouldn't be on MH right now). I am LOVING it!! Best decision I've ever made in my career, really. So much less stress and a much better work/life balance too. :)

I know everyone says stress is bad for baby, and of course you want to try and keep your stress in check for general good health and sanity!  But I've always been a "worry wart" and honestly was practically white-knuckled through early pregnancy, especially the first trimester but even into the second, so nervous about all that we can't control during that time.

My little one was very healthy through my entire pregnancy.

We all get mother's guilt over anything we do that even might have a negative effect, that just shows what a great mother you will be!  But in the end we all need to just do our best, and yeah I wasn't able to change a lifetime of being a stressed out worrier for my pregnancy.

Be kind to yourself, I'm sure that's what your little one wants more than anything right now!
