my parents stay in diff city ,they are worried that this stress will harm my child within
though i dont feel any discomfort
so i want to know if atall such anger,disspointmnet can harm my child
Ok. Let me brief you.
First of all, stress can affect badly on the developing child.
Though scientific data is not availabe regarding the effect physically on baby,
It can also be said that stress can affect the normal, peaceful growth of the baby within the uterus.
The main reason for it is because of the release of negative hormones within the mother's body.
this is happening since my 2 nd month
so is their any way i can save my child
Surely you can improve the environment for your expected baby.
or the damage aleady startted within?
The first and foremost is to remove all factors which causes you stress.
It is not that whether damage is done or not. It is more important to correct the causing factors.
isnt it late now, plz tell me the truth
It is not late.
Development is an ongoing process.
So it can be corrected.
Please do not worry.
I am sure you can improve the conditions for yourself and the baby.
how,,,iam alwayz on tears
atleast half of the month
As you said, you are having stressful days with your husband,
cant change city,,aim workg here
it is important for both of you to realize this fact and act accordingly,
i guess he wont. Hence iam also planning for seperation as the child is born
I understand your situation.
This is really a stressful phase for you.
cant shift to a pg as noone will allow at this state of mine
i need to manage more 4 months till i go for my leave to my parents
atleast help me with soem ideas which i can practice to avoid stress
I assume that both of you have decided for a seperation. It is purely both of your decision to go for it or not. As a doctor, I can suggest that you both talk it out yourselves, or can talk it with th help of a psychologist.
no its only me,,,but i guess he wont stop me
If compromises can be done, go for it. Otherwise only way would be to practice stress reduction methods.
how to practice that
do i need to go to a yoga center?
Avoid discussions which causes you to think rapidly or aggrssively.
You may need to get advice on breathing exercises from a yoga expert.
You can also google out for youtube videos for breathing exercises.
Also try watching some comedy movies, to help you to have a laugh once in a while.
You can also flip through early family photos to have a boost of good hormones.
ohh,,ok, tthats possible
Fresh vegetables and fruits should give you a healthy nutrient intake.
that i am takg
no prob with foodg atall
Adequate rest should be taken.
That is good.
Talk to your friends often.
But not on topics related to your husband. Instead talk of good old college days and other matters which help you to have a good laugh.
All these could reduce your stress at least by a 50%.
Rest of the 50 % can be sorted out only if things can get sorted out between you both.
so with 50% , can i have a healthy child?
A lot can improve with 50%
coz i know the other 50
I understand. Still you can improve that part by completely avoiding the thought about the problems you are facing.
Once you start practicing all these, I am sure you will start noticing the changes in your stress levels.
thanx for your suggestion
Remember, please do not keep worrying about things.
i will have to do it,,just for my child
Time will pass on and matters will get beeter.
Do you have any other queries?
Thank you for consulting me.
Bye for now.
