Where Did My Patience Go?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
OOH MY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have NO patience at all today. I am so annoyed by everything ds#1 does today. I have NEVER felt this way. I think it's cabin fever. We went outside and played in the gray snow banks that were speckled with the neighborhoods dogs' crap. :

I can't wait for my dh to get home so I can send him off with the boys to get take out. I have even resorted to the TV for entertainment until dh gets home. No more projects today.ild

I don't know what is wrong with me today. PMS? Pregnancy?

You are not alone!
I get like this too when I haven't been out of the house for days and nobody has come to visit me.

I'm with you. I have no patiance. Esp. with dd2 who is asking to nurse every twenty minutes and having tantrums when I say no. This weather is so nasty! It's raining now. Melting all of the dirty snow only to reveal nasty, muddy yards.

Dh came home and we all went to a local deli for dinner. I still feel evil. I am hiding in the office while dh plays with the boys. I usually have so much patience with my sons. And I'm not even tired. Can hormones make you feel that yicky?

Why don't you take a pen and write for 3 pages straight, no thinking, no editing, just anything. Usually makes me feel SO much better. You'll be surprised what may come up -

Oooh, I felt like this last week on Tuesday, then again on Friday. I don't think I would have made it if not for dh... For me, it's a combination of pregnancy hormones and cabin fever. And not getting enough sleep. (But when I'm pregnant, I could sleep 12 hours a day and still be tired....) Thank goodness for bedtime!

It's amazing that I found this post today. I was feeling very guilty about my night last night. DS was so irritated, refused to nurse but was hungry. I tried to latch him on over and over but with no luck. He'd arch his back and get really pissed.
I had to resort to pumping and feeding him ebm by bottle!

The thing I feel guilty about is while I was pumping he was very upset. All I could do was hold him (while he was screaming) in my lap while I fumbled trying to pump. It was a nightmare. But after a few minutes he got intersted in watching the pump and he calmed down. He took the milk from a bottle, so for some reason he didn't want the breast. He nursed fine in the middle of the night and this morning.

I hate nights like that.
