You know, at first I didn't think so, but now I have had 3 children, and I believe that what you are experiencing emotionally can have an effect on your unborn child. leaving an imprint on their genetics? That I don't believe. Whether or not you inherit a pysical trait or characteristic of a parent's personality is going to happen through your DNA, and I don't think there is much you can do about that! However, think of the emotional part this way. Have you ever walked into a room of people and you get this surge of energy, whether it is tension or elation? You get that feeling before you sometimes know what is actually happening. Plus, your hormones run through the course of your body; in which your baby is capsuled. To me, it seems logical that your unborn baby feels what you feel emotionally.However, that is just one of many opinions. Take many others, get educated on the subject, and form what you truly believe.
