No harm: Maternal stress is not going to hurt your baby if it's short lived (a couple of days) and you otherwsie have the support around you tha tyou need right now. Stress in your system actually can help the baby mature more quickly. However, you are nearing delivery and need to care for yourself and others should be pampering you right now. Hormones are raging, so take a deep breath and relax
