I think I just need to vent to some ladies who will at least understand and possibly relate.
I am just so ridiculously weepy lately and feeling not myself emotionally and mentally. It isn't constant at all but it's been here a good part of yesterday and today.
I'm not stressed about baby, not worried about baby, not obsessing about weight... none of my anxieties are related to pregnancy (aside from the fact that it's all amplified by the hormones).
We're a little tight on money, but it's not dire. I know I have a few extra bills this month (dentist, GI doc) and then I get a call yesterday from the midwife's office saying they need my address to send me a bill for the phone consult that the other receptionist told me was a "free 10 minute first consult". Argued (nicely) with the lady who called me and she's saying it wasn't just a 10 minute introduction call, she made a lot of notes about me and my other health issues etc. Whatever. Send me the stupid bill. Then I get off the phone and cry about it because it's just one more extra bill now for this month.
DH has been really busy at work so I almost never get to talk with him during the day, something we used to be able to do quite often. I have other adult friends to meet with or call during the day but it's just not the same, so I'm feeling like we're not spending enough time talking and connecting and that ends up making me cry, even though he gets home and we spend the whole night together after the kids go to bed.
The good thing about it (I guess) is that I can really FEEL when my thoughts are not rational and I know it's not a good time to talk about what I'm feeling/thinking because I'll just be a puffy, wet mess. I am able to recognize when my emotions are more normal and I can have a straight talk with DH and say "hey, what should we do about these extra bills" without losing it.
But, oh, it's wearing me out. This pregnancy has been tougher in the nausea (which seems to be done now) and emotional areas than my previous pregnancies. I guess I'm not getting any younger!
How's everyone else doing in the crazy-lady hormone department?
Is there anything we can do to help regulate this somewhat?
