I have been extremely stressed the last few weeks of this pregnany. With one week till due date it has gotten worse. I roll around and am up most of the night. I wish I could turn my brain off! The only thing that keeps my mind off things is going for long walks, which i do multiple times a day, I highly recommend this!
