Iv been feeling my baby move for quite a while now. The past week I have been having a really tough time with my partner and many other things. I have been so stressed and worked up constantly and always so angry. Anyway ever since Iv been stressed my baby's movements seem to have increased a hell of a lot! Is it possible I'm stressing my baby out or am I being paranoid? I'm trying my hardest to stay calm and I really hope I'm not hurting my baby! sad

Hi Chickenfillets, you sound just like me! However when I went for my 20 week scan a few weeks ago I was assured that everything is fine. I now look forward to him waking up and having a boxing session, worrying when he isn't as active as usual, and find it quite calming to interact with him by gently encouraging his movements and receiving a response from the little person inside me.

Thanks aneesa im probably just being paranoid. I need to remember he is getting bigger in there and i will feel more movements!
