I fear the baby can hear every thing

User Profile
23 weeks pregnant... Since 8 th week life has taken a bad turn, there has been constant fights and crying and loads of work.. the worst part of all is crying and the abusive words that come out of my husbands mouth in front of my mother in law which is unacceptable to me. I fear the baby can hear every thing which hurts me way more... and I cry too much because if I answer back there will be more abusive words spoken to me... I wonder what impact it is is having on the baby? yes I am not happy but will this effect my baby in the worst way like would he have ADD or will he be hyper active or will the baby be crying all the time. Usually I am a calm person... but suddenly I am not able to bare any thing negative around me and getting insulted in front of the third person is driving me mad... Please tell me the baby will turn out fine and that it is myth to be happy in the pregnancy. Is it to late to be happy?

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

The mood of mother, what she eats etc, all affect the baby and his growth. While the baby may not have any attention disorder or psychological impact, the baby may not grow well. So try to be happy and if situation at home cannot be diffused, may be you could go and stay with your parents or friends and relatives for the rest of the time. Hope this helps. Take care!
