I have recently started to compulsively bite my tongue and pick at my arms
Stress ?

I go through periods of this, I guess it's like nail biting. Is there anything particular on your mind? The only way I stop it is if I'm too busy to sit picking or if I consciously stop myself whenever i realise I'm doing it.

I bite little tiny ulcers off my tongue and end up with it completely numb and bleeding. So stupid!

I'm 35 weeks pregnant and feeling pretty relaxed about it I think maybe I'm stressed and don't know it hormones lol

Sounds stress related to me. I pick at my cuticles when I'm stressed. It's disgusting and leaves me with bloody fingers.

Find a way to de-stress. I know that's easier said than done when you are 35 weeks pregnant.
