I know I'm not the only one feeling like a basket case, right? I'm crabby today. Everything is annoying me for some reason or another and I don't like feeling this way. I'm usually a laid back, positive person but pregnancy hormones turn me in to a cranky, intolerant mama for a while!
I don't know why, but whenever I'm hormonal (pms or pregnant) my mother irritates me to no end! She called earlier and managed to ask about every single thing I did not want to talk about with her. I feel bad that I couldn't muster up the patience to answer her questions nicely and let it go. It does remind me of a sort of self-preservation, though. Maybe mental preservation? "No mom, we don't have the food for the reception next friday yet. Don't worry, there WILL be food to eat!" I mean, the pregnant lady will be sure there is food to eat! lol
And my sweet fiance, he helped me with a resume and was so patient and helpful. I was crabby. I REALLY tried to only be grateful, and I was grateful, but I was irritable, too. He's being so wonderful, though. I think he understands to some degree that hormones have taken over my mind lately. I remember this crazy crabby nonsense lasting through most of my pregnancy with my daughter. Any mamas have suggestions to make it stop? Or at least lessen?
and then there are the smells...SO many gross, unpleasant, or just plain horrid smells that I wish I couldn't smell!
I am surprised at how much patience I have with my daughter, though. We're really enjoying the end of our summer together. She's the only person I've been around for a long period of time who has not gotten on my nerves at all. I mean, I still get annoyed when she won't get her pajamas on for bed, but it's not that cranky hormonal feeling, just that "Ok, it's really bedtime now!" feeling.
I am thrilled to be pregnant and enjoying most of it. I just don't feel like myself today. Ah, I'm done venting. Goodnight!
