Stress during pregnancy (34 weeks)
Dear Ladies

Pls advise me on this. Lately i am so stressed because my husband does not support me emotionally. I have being under strain for almost a week. How will this a affect my unborn baby at 34 weeks? I have just find out that my husband is cheating on me with another woman. I really need my husband to be there for me but it seems that we take different route every day. My parents don't know anything about this but it kills me so bad.

It is very difficult to quantify stress and everyone has some degree of stress, so it is difficult to know what effect it will have on the pregnancy. You may benefit from talking to a counsellor though.
