London: Moms-to-be, it`s high time that you cut the stress, particularly if you are in the second or third month of pregnancy, for a study says it can raise your risk of giving birth prematurely and losing baby boys.Researchers at New York University have found that exposure to stress can shorten the length of pregnancy, making it more likely that babies will be born early and for boys tobe miscarried. It is the first time stress has been shown to affect the balance between the sexes, known as the sex ratio, which normally favours an excess in the number of boys being born, the `Daily Mail` reported.
