Ways of coping with stress during pregnancy - any ideas??

To cut a long story short I'm 33 weeks pregnant and have been 'let go' by my work, with no likely-hood of maternity pay because my contract ends before mat leave was due to start. Everything aside (and yes, I am contesting this and seeking advice) I'm worried about the effects of stress on my unborn child. Is there anything you can recommend? Also, I have a GP appt tomorrow and I'm going to ask her to sign me off work until my contract ends (July) Do you think she will?

The contract is a renewable one, that I assumed would be renewed - they usually are.

Sorry to hear about your job. It's hard to tell what your GP will do... But to destress - how about antenatal yoga?

Thanks. I've never done yoga before - I'll look into it. Although if it involves over a certain amount of money, I might have to leave it.
