They Re Coming To Take Me Away Ha Ha

momm4 - January 6

OK, guys, either I'm on my way to the funny farm, or I've had one of the worst hormonal surges on record today. It started when I got up this morning, I was actually feeling pretty good. Then I spent most of the morning cleaning house, and I was exhausted by the time I was done. I met my sister for lunch, and when I left I was driving to the store. I have no idea what happened, but I started crying uncontrollably.( I think it was the song on the radio)After that , I got this urge to flip off this idiot driving in front of me. I spent the rest of the evening chattering away like a fool about nothing important with a friend of mine, driving home in tears listening to Delila(?)the talk show host on the radio, then explaining an inside joke I'd heard and giggling like a nut the whole time. On top of everything, I'm chasing my 2 year old son around all day, trying very hard not to lose my patience with him. My poor husband looks at me like he's sizing me up for a maternity straight jacket. I really feel stupid telling you all this, but I know if there's anyone out there that understands where I'm coming from, it's you ladies!! By the way, have a great weekend!(ha, ha, he, he, ho, ho...)

At least you aren't screaming out of frustration over life. All I do is get ultra-p.o.'d & then cry my brains out nowadays. I love this baby inside me, but the rest of my life feels like a mess. Hormones on top of it aren't helping. Thanks for sharing. Sometimes a lady just needs to hear this stuff to know she's not alone.

Oh honey, you are doing just fine!! Just go with it. When I was preg with my son I would get upset and the only thing that calmed me down was to sleep for awile. When I woke up I would feel horribly guilty for the way I'd treated everyone and have to apologize for my behavior. Sigh, such is the life of a pregnant woman! You are not experiencing anything unexpected. Anyone who knows you are pregnant will understand, and you might as well learn not to stress about it. Enjoy it while you can, if you did it at any other time you would be receiving shock treatments by now!!! LOL!!! Blessings to you!!

You know, momm4, my boyfriend just doesn't believe me AT ALL. He treats me like the "pregnancy hormones" thing is just an excuse I'm making & that I'm really just a b___h in real life. Maybe because most of the time we've been together, I've been pregnant, so he didn't know my demeanor before except to think it was the "honeymoon phase." So I wind up apologizing, but he still winds up mad. I don't know what to do anymore.

I have the urge to slap the c___p out of someone often. I haven't cried as much with this one as I did with my first and I don't get the urge to laugh hysterically. My only urge is to sleep all the time. GRRRR!!!!

To me, My husband really didn't understand what I was going through either until we went to a Christmas concert at a elementary school! I think being surrounded by children in the audience as young as a few months old with their parents and hearing them call their fathers "daddy" really hit home. Afterwards he bought me ice-cream when I was craving it (without being asked), brought me home flowers, and made me breakfast when I had said the night before that I wanted french toast! I don't know why but I am loving it and still enjoying his new found admiration weeks later. I say take your man to something with a bunch of little ones maybe he'll catch the dad bug too:)

Thanks Sarah. The thing is... he is already so ecstatic about being a dad. He loves kids. And he even helped raise his newborn brother when he himself was only ten. I asked him to read these posts to see I'm not the only one. Overall though, I'm just going to try to be a little more cheery. Meet him halfway more.

momm4 and all, I know how you feel. My husband thinks I am crazy and he is a super patient person. Last night I guess I hit my DH in his sleep. I had some crazy dream and I was mad at him, so I sat up, leaned over and punched him in the arm. (So he says!) Then I woke up and wondered what the heck I was doing... it was 3:30 in the morning and all we could so was laugh at how crazy I am.


me too - January 9

Yep, me too. I feel like this pregnancy has been an out of body experience, I get so frustrated with my husband for the stupidest reasons.............last night it was because he walks through the living room like an elephant and shakes the whole room. Its been bugging me for weeks and last night I just "let fly" and told him it was annoying as h_ll. Momm4, you are SOOOO not alone on this one. I am 15 weeks tomorrow and thought we were supposed to be feeling better in the 2nd trimester? I am a bit less queasy, but making up for it in my att_tude!!!
