I am so crabby! How about U?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I am so crabby these past few days and I can't seem to shake it. Crabby with my dh and kiddos too.

I just am getting so uncomfortable bending over, sleeping, breathing, walking and generally remaining upright. If I am not hungry, then I am overstuffed, if not freezing, than hot as can be. Everything is in extremes.

When I am not feeling crabby, I feel blue :

I do not remember having these moody episodes before with the other two.

Any suggestions? I would like to spend 1 hour in a bath then lay down in a very dark room ALONE for an extended period of time, wake up, have a great meal prepared for me where I am not involved in the cooking or clean up, and then go back to bed. Oh, and did I mention a massage would be good?

Not a snowball's chance....

Ok, I will try to suck it up and move on with life here.

Thanks for reading and hearing me gripe!

Oh my goodness... I SO hear you!
I've been horrible these past few days, I feel so bad for my kids

The heat is really making it bad, we don't have A/C so it gets really hot in here in the afternoon (and too hot to go outside, there's no shade in the back yard ), and I just can't handle it! :

I've been feeling a bit blue this pg too : ...alot sometimes actually.
Though that may be more 'home/family (aka husband) issues' than anything else

Ugh.. me too.
I feel like a lot of my moods are a nesting urge trying to break out. We have some big projects that need to be done before dp goes back to work next month..painting, rug cleaning, living room walls, etc, etc. And the mess... A lot of it hinges on that.. I dunno..
I don't feel like I'm making a lot of sense lately.
and my backpain. with a 4 year old and the messes that go along with the territory, I just can't seem to avoid bending over.

I have my good and bad days when it comes to being moody. I am especially crabby when I am tired. My fatigue has come back with a vengenace unfortunately. I get most fatigued between the hours of 2pm and 5pm for some reason, then all I want to do is sleep, ugh. I have been a good girl and started taking my pre natal vitamins again, even though they give me insane stomach cramps, but it only helps alittle. So my advice would be to take the prenatal vitamin every day if you aren't doing so now, since the baby is really having a growth spurt these next couple of months.

I know, what's up with that! I almost feel like my morning sickness has come back, especially after I take my vitamins or if I get too hot. I actually threw up for the first time during either of my pg's the other day!
I'm touchy and crabby and tired too, and everything I look at in the house is dirty and stinky, even stuff I've just cleaned. I've started using bleach for the first time in my life. EVERYTHING is getting bleached. It's nuts! Good thing there's only a few more weeks of this madness. I'm just hoping it does actually go away this time instead of carrying on into PPD. :

Well, it is reassuring to know that it is not just me... I just don't remember being this crabby before.

I feel a bit better today. I'll start taking those prenatals more consistently.

I have to work tonight, so I hope I get a good nap in today!
We put a small AC in our bedroom window and that helps enormously.

Im most crabby when Im hot, or tired. I put a fan outside when I sit in the shade(porch) or try and stay in the A/C when I can. I found a damp/cool washcloth around the neck helps cool me down some when the heat gets bad too. I try and drink plenty of ice water too because the hotter I get , the more I drink, the more I have to go to the bathroom, and the more irriated I become I'm making every attempt to keep good spirits and keep telling myself Im in the homestratch now. I also take catnaps, even sitting in the chair just closing my eyes for bout 15min seems to make it better. Im lucky my daughter reminds me when Im crabby by sayin " I love you mommi, I know you're just pregnant an gives me a hug " LOL

I'm not crabby, I'm being wronged by the world! Don't THEY know everything is supposed to revolve around ME right now???? If everyone would just OBEY ME then I wouldn't be crabby at all.

(Just kidding, obviously ... ) (Well, mostly.)

You are right there! Let's all get tee shirts that say "until the baby is born, it is ALL about me"

I am ok until I get these random phases of feeling SO UNCOMFORTABLE I just want to scream. Like I am huge and heavy and stretched to the limit and the baby is just squashing EVERYTHING and I can't breathe and my skin crawls and I'm hot and sweaty and NO position helps! Nothing seems to make me feel better, though I try to drink lots of water and tell myself that helps. I get SO cranky and unpleasant during these little episodes, and I know it, but I can't stop myself. Fortunately they only last an hour or so at a time, so when I am NOT feeling like that, I have talked to DH about what it feels like, and apologized in advance, and then when I AM feeling that way, I always make sure to say, "I AM HAVING THAT REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE FEELING" in the midst of all my other ranting and b****iness, so he basically gives me a free pass. And afterwards I say sorry and describe what it felt like.

DH is being amazingly good at handling this. If I weren't pregnant, this would NOT fly!

This is exactly how I am feeling lately. I'm having a hard time hiding it too

I have been seriously crabby too. And when not crabby : .
It just hit me really bad, it wasnt that bad before, about a week ago.
Ever since then I just really feel like I cannot cope without being b**chy.
I hurt everywhere. My pubic joint is killing me and going to the chiro only mildly helps with that, might help more if i could afford to go more often. And the chiro only hleps with my back for about 2 hours after an adj. Then i have to wait to go in again to get another two days of relief from that. its been hot here (for me, no one else is hot) and we dont have A/C anywhere but the car but gas is so expensive and a lot of th stores around here dont keep it very cool in their stores so i cant go hand out somehwer. and I dont feel up to it anyway. I hurt too bad to do much walking. I just keep thinking I have 11 1/2 more weeks, how in the hell am I going to get through this?! But I will. And in the end it will be worth it but watch out world bcz I am not a happy person right now!
