I have anxiety , and I worry about the same thing. Stress is normal, and I think minor stress is normal and okay. If you are really having trouble I would ask your OB. Good luck.

Geez, I think I cried everyday when I was pg with DS, just from hormones. I would wake up at night and cry for hours on end for no reason. I was always upset and crying and I think my DS turned out just fine.

I don't know about excessive stress, but my understanding is that research shows babies are actually better off when their mothers experience mild stress during pregnancy than when they report having stress-free pregnancies.

I wouldn't worry about the hyperventilating either, unless you're fainting on a regular basis.
