Can staying upset and stressed out cause you to not gain any weight?

I'm almost 30 weeks and before pregnancy I was normal height and weight but I've gained less than 5 pounds the whole time Ive been pregnant. I eat all the time. I eat 3 meals a day and eat snack in between. My first pregnancy I gained almsot 40 pnds and my eating habits were the same as they are now. I do stay stressed out pretty much everyday between my job and fighting with my boyfriend (we argue alot and even when I get mad at him over something he finds a way to turn it around on me). Could this stress and staying upset be contributing to me not gaining weight?
