    Thumbs down Pregnant and b$tchy!

    Ever since my nausea started, so did my moodiness! I was talking to my sister (who was moody the throughout her whole pregnancy last time) about it the other day and she mentioned that she was annoyed by almost everyone. She joked that she could stand her spouse, her daughter and then had a rotating three person slot for people she could tolerate. This scares me because I am so *****y right now that the only person I really get along with is my husband. Is this really how I am going to be for the rest of my pregnancy? Is there anyway to cool myself down? Aside from being asked "how are you feeling?" a million times, there isn't really anything that anyone is doing wrong.

    Haha, I'm pretty sure it just comes with the territory. If you consider not getting any sleep, being sick, having your body completely flooded by hormones, and pain everywhere, id say you have a pretty good reason to be irritated. I was irritated by everyone, even my husband. He just got to be there while I suffered which irritated me to no end. I guess the only thing you can do is mentally control yourself. I learned to keep my mouth shut so I didn't hurt peole who were only being concerned. The second trimester calms down a bit, so that's something to look forward to. I'm sorry to say but when people tell you that it gets worse at the end they aren't kidding. It gets completely miserable. Toward the end when people asked how I was feeling I began answering truthfully, like when one woman asked I said I feel like s***. She didn't ask anymore after that . Hope stuff goes ok and the rest of your pregnancy flies by. The good thing is people will excuse your behavior because you're pregnant, especially if they have been pregnant before.

    LMAO- I so remember being that way with DS1 and a little bit with DS2 and this pregnancy. With DS1 EVERYONE got on my last nerve!! LOL it did get better after I got out of the first tri but I was still b****y then usual. I think the first tri hormones make it worse though. GL and try to breathe!

    2nd trimester marked the worst hormone fluctuations i have ever experienced. It is sometimes like i dont have control of my body anymore. It has been better for the past week so i hope it stays that way. But for a while at times it was like a scene out of the exorcist! My poor husband. Also, i find myself highly intolerant of stupid

    1st trimester was horrible for me as well...i would get mad for no reason and i felt like breaking things at times lol
    not sure why it happens but i have a pretty good guess that is has something to do with hormones

    LOL I find myself getting irritated with EVERYTHING! and my husband is usually at the receiving end of it. He's being really good about it, but a few times he's called me out saying, i just asked you a question, why are you being such a b**ch?! and then I stop and think, and he's totally right. oops. lol I'm also finding that I have no tolerance for dumb comments, questions, etc. If I think something is stupid, it's like I have no filter! I find myself saying all the time, why is this person so effing stupid?! when really I just have no tolerance for anything anymore. People that annoyed me before becoming pregnant (a woman I work with and my MIL especially!) have been on the receiving end of some VERY cold shoulders lol but so far I have managed to keep my super rude responses to the confines of my own head mostly. That's probably good

    Sure enough...I have hit the third trimester and I find myself referring back to all of your responses for support. I am miserable and moody. Easily annoyed with peoples comments. Everyone feels a need to tell me how big I am. I guess you gotta take the good with the bad.

    My tolerance for stupid people got slimmer and slimmer as I got further along. It's totally normal.. just gotta know you are doing it and try your best to keep yourself in check.

    I really think it's a chemical response, and not in our control. I had more aversions towards people than I did food. A big one which I am actually ashamed to admit, was that I couldn't physically stand to hear people eat. My poor husband would get the worst looks from me and all he was trying to do was enjoy an apple. I felt a lot of guilt over it, because I was so thankful to be pg, but regardless of that, I just couldn't shake these feelings. My husband had one friend that I couldn't even stand the SIGHT of.

    I love that...how true. It does make me feel better realizing that it is normal and not in my control. I try really, really hard not to hurt anyone's feelings. DH says that I am doing well. He said that he can't really tell when I am feeling super cranky. Most of the time I warn him that my mood is bad and that it is not anything he is doing wrong.

    I do wonder though, did any of you that were moody also have problems with postpartum depression? I don't want to worry about not being able to be happy for my son. Hopefully there will not be a correlation. FX.
