Anxiety and Anger
The problem with my wife is-she thinks a lot abt everything or people's behavior towards her. Like, if there is any issue between her and her mother-in-law(MIL) and MIL stops talking to her then she starts thinking in many ways. If i take it normal like everyone does that if they come through with any argument with anyone but her problem goes beyond that like she starts suffering with severe headache, she cries a lot, even she has hurt herself in past just because of some regular issues between "saas-bahu". Now, she is pregnant and at her mom's home since one month. And she again went through with "no communication with her MIL" issue before leaving the home (our) to her mom's house and she is still thinking a lot about the issue and having a continuous headache, low BP, not taking proper diet. I advise her not to think much about my mother or anything else, it can be harmful to our baby but she is unable to doso. Basically she cant control her thought process and let it ruined her.

I appreciate your concern about your wife and your Mom. It brings in a lot of peace when saas-bahu relationship is taken care. Your life becomes smooth. Also the misunderstandings are around for various reasons and it gets piled up every time unresolved with each other. I would suggest that you both as couple attend a family counselling with a counsellor to understand about each other and live a peaceful life.

hi , thanks for approaching us. I can understand your role in between your wife and mother also emotional disturbance that you are experiencing. Firstly, she lacks handling her emotions connected to the behviour with others, it cannot directly be said as adjustment problem, but some where she need to work on dealing with relationship especially in Joint family. she also lacks in self confidence along with this she is not in proper diet which is also causing physical problem in her. Secondly, as she is pregnant, there will be huge hormonal imbalance in which they will be lot of psychological or emotional changes can be identified. that also might be the result of her behaviour. Kindly try to keep her happy and positive complete her pregnancy period. the more she is happy and healthy the better the development of baby. give complete emotional support, care and affection in this period, engage in the things which she loves to do and she enjoy in doing. most important thing is her diet, should filled of fruits and veggies which gives strength both physically and mentally. Kindly visit the counsellor/ psychologist in your place for better life, both physical and psychological problem can harm the baby. stay positive and healthy.

It is looking like some adjustment problem. Overthinking is not looking like a psychological disorder, but reapeted issues and psycho-somatic symptoms (psychological or mind origin problem and its effects reflect on body i.e., headache, low BP) may harm both mother and baby and family environment also.
Next Steps
you are the bridge between your wife and your mother. So, proper balancing with both of them should be maintained by you. In such situation, an expert's opinion may help your family. I think, in the first step, there is no need of any psychiatric medication to your wife. Consult with clinical psychologist/ councellor/ psychiatrist. Family councelling/ Group therapy may be helpful.
Health Tips
You can consult with homoeopathic psychiatrist also, because in such cases homoeopathic medicines may increase the acceptance of councelling sessions.
