In brief: Yes

Lots of tv comedies wouldn't have any shows without pregnancy for a topic! to be serious, emotional changes are definitely common due to the dramatic hormonal fluctuations seen throughout pregnancy.
Even pre-existing conditions like depression can be worsened by pregnancy. Good partner support is crucial -- understanding and communication are the keys to healthy relationships.
