Is anyone interested in discussing stress in our lives and how we balance it out so we can nourish our pregnancies? I have a lot of stress in my life right now, but I am in pretty good place in general. I have a supportive partner, a healthy child, a job, a home... Many blessings!
But it seems like every challenge that comes along triggers me and I shut down. Are there any other mamas out there with a lot of stress or unhealthy response to stress? I am in counseling, which helps with specific issues, but sometimes it seems like I get into a mode that is hard to get out of...
What do you do? How do you cope? I would love to have a thread where we can vent and share.
If you want to be part of it, feel free! If you have some advice, please chime in. And remember, "just relax" isn't always constructive advice.

Biggest source of stress today: We are currently battling a bed bug infestation! Also, I work a fair amount (self-employed) and when I am stressed I am not very productive, leading to impending deadline and procrastination stress.
