help - November 12

Im 38 weeks pregnant and I think I'm breaking down!! Today everything and everybody made me cry. Has anyone else experienced this or is it just me? I don't know how much longer I can handle it!!!!

I have experienced feeling like I was going to totally lose it too - but not crying..with me it's no patience for my older children or hubby and feeling like I am always yelling and wanting to tell everyone around me off. There are times I sit in the tub for an hour so I can be alone because I can't even stand myself. I know I am being a *itch....so I try and give myself some "me" time, enjoying a hot drink or reading for a bit or having a bath. You just need to realize that hormones are whacky at this time, and take care of yourself....do something you enjoy that is relaxing and remember....not much longer to go:)

Hey, I am 36 weeks and experiencing the same thing. I have been soo happy and able to sleep without a problem up until about a week ago. Now i lay in bed at night and toss and turn and i get up and cry and i also feel sick to my stomach and pressure on my pelvis and that doesnt help much. I also try to take warm baths or sit in my room alone and read or listen to music and that sometimes helps but i always end up feeling upset again b/c i cant sleep and nothing fits me and i just want this baby to be here already. so your not the only one, i feel the same way. i am going to ask my doc if its normal! gl

I call my bout hormonal grumpiness, except mine has been since almost day 1! Most people don't bother me, but there's a certain few that just looking at them gets me going. And lately kids, toddler and up, drive me insane! That's the tough one--I feel so bad having such a bad att_tude towards kids when I will have one in a few weeks! Hope it all goes away once baby is here! L, I think all our moodiness is very normal, but we're not in our "right" minds, so it feels like it's not. :)

Melissa- you're right we are not in our right minds. and i am soo with you about the kids. I think babies are adorable but lately my 3 yr old neice is driving me up the wall! i too hope this goes away so i can enjoy my baby. is it possible that we have post partum depression before giving birth?

I'm not sure if it's ppd, or just hormones. I'm very sensitive and moody normally, so I'm a little concerned about ppd afterwards, but I've got a good support system, and I tend to get over things pretty quickly. Good luck!

I've been super emotional since day one as well. I'm only 18 weeks now with my first baby, but it hasn't let up. And today, everything & everyone has made me so depressed & angry. I don't have a great support system as Melissa states she does. I just moved to a strange place to be with my beloved boyfriend, & now we're pregnant. Happily so, but still. I have no friends here, just people who feel obligated to be nice to me because they're friends with my bf. And he works so much, his work schedule is 3-midnight, & often then he hangs out in smoky places I really shouldn't be in right now. And my family is 10 hours away by car; my closest friends are still thousands of miles away. On top of it, I'm having the hardest time finding a job, which leads to all sorts of other problems. My bf sympathizes with me, loves me & tries to help me, but I remain in this predicament. Anyway maybe this will make the women posting their unhappinesses here feel a little better knowing at least they're not literally lonely & penniless like me.

I just sat in the bathtub and cried hysterically for an hour because my husband would not take out the trash the second I asked him to. Not to mention that it is now 2:15 and I am still in my pajamas (I put on the same ones I was wearing before the bath). Today has not been a great day for me, but there's always tomorrow!
