interesting article, with some even more interesting comments after

A Womb with a View - NYTimes.com

when I was pregnant with Cadie, my cat Fred died suddenly. He was one of the major loves of my life without question, and I was devastated. I remember worrying about how that may of effected her.

I think my favorite quote from the comments was this...

There's already a lot a really good information available on this subject, such as the compelling and useful compendium, What to Expect When You're Expected, by David Javerbaum, G.E.D.

Seriously though... I hear what she is saying. I do believe such things as stress levels affect the baby. Just on a basic chemical level (I think it's cortosol that is released while experiencing stress). But I do agree that research like this is only going to cause more restrictions. I can just hear OB's saying "We need to induce you because you have too much going on in your life and it's better for the baby to outside of you."

Thank you Kiliki for my wonderfull siggie!

When i was 32 weeks pregnant my mother in law died of cancer, followed by 2 days later after my baby shower, my brother in law. DH was the one who found his brother dead. That night i went into preterm. Didnt know it till a couple days later at our first childbirth class..i just thought that baby was being extra active causing my back to hurt. That night she was moving like crazy, and again at the double viewing for the two of them. Like she could sense the sorrow, and hear us crying our hearts out. I ofter wonder if it had any impact on her personality...she's a pistol! There is no doubt our bodies react to stress accordingly. When i see woman freaking out over nothing while pregnant i kinda want to smack them! chill out mamam!!!! interesting article.

Thank you Mom2*Lauryn*Jacob* for my gorgeous siggie!
