EMotional pregnancy

I have been going thru an emotional rollercoaster with my husband since i found out i was preganant. Im now 8 months. Everyone keeps going on about how i need to relax and how im endangering my baby.
Does any1 know for a fact that this will harm my baby? and will it really lead to a colic baby? its the last thing i want, but i cant help a broken heart

There isn't really much evidence about the effects of stress on the baby, as it is obviously difficult to measure stress. Don't worry too much about what the baby will be like at this stage.
