Anxiety not making my baby sleep?

I am a very stressed person and have bipolar and lately have this great anxiety feeling seeing myself and my boyfriend had a huge fight and now we are really not connecting or talking anymore. I asked him to forgive me and not do this for our baby' s sake, but he is as stubborn as you can get. Can my feeling of stress and anxiety be causing my baby not to want to sleep or only sleep for short periods and only want to sleep near me? This makes me worried even more.
