Anyone else grouchy?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I have been so grouchy lately. It doesn't take much, but if I have to repeat myself more than twice to my children or my DH, I just get really cranky with them. I have also been very weepy lately. These mood swings are awful.

Anyone else?

Yes! The emotional roller coaster is not fun. Come on babies, come out!

I am the same way OP. I feel like a horrible mother lately. No one is keeping the house clean or helping me out enough.
I am grouch-mama.

I'm just perpetually mad or tired or both. The mad is pretty much right under the surface all the time. I think it's from being tired and sore, and just sick of this! Sometimes I think being mad gives us more stamina for labor!

oh heck yeah!

Last night I picked a fight with DH because I felt like he should have married his laptop instead of me : , and yes, there were tears & angry insomnia, and then first thing this morning at work, I bought a cup of coffee which I promptly spilled all over the right half of the front of my shirt (which is light gray). They gave me a replacement cup, which had a faulty rim, so then when I got to my cubicle and lifted it to drink, off popped the lid, so that now I had coffee spilled on the left front of my shirt, and my sleeve to boot. OOOO I have not had a good day, feeling self-conscious about the ENORMOUS poo-brown stain all over my shirt!!!!

Yes. Though I am trying to not let my inner grouch out. Today I was in l&d (just for more monitoring) and as the nurse is asking me questions, I'm answering them like this but really what I'm feeling is this .

Then I come home to my mom who for some reason is really, really rubbing me the wrong way right now so I'm answering her questions but what I'm feeling is

Basically, if I could just not talk to anyone about "when do I think the baby will come" or "have they changed your due date?" (wtf?) I would be happy. Maybe I should just not talk to anyone. Ever.

Sign me up! I am definitely having some issues. I have never been this emotional at the end of a pg before! I am glad I am not the only one! Yesterday the kids trashed their bedroom and dh came for lunch and found me crying on the couch. I was just at the end of my rope with them and they are not listening. Dh really got on to them when he saw me and it made me feel better to know he was taking up for me. How silly!

Today I drive out to the mall to hopefully find a gender neutral outfit that no one around here seems to have. I didn't find one but they had some 70% off things I found for the others. I went to pay only to find out that dh has my check card and I left my checks at home. No money!! All that and waddling around in pain for nothing!! I have to go back tonight and also have to do some big grocery shopping too. Little electric grocery scooter here I come!!

Both wal-mart & k-mart have white and yellow things.... yellow is still gender neutral isn't it? (I hope so, because that's what I wound up buying for my gender neutral baby outfits!)

LMAO....that's actually a GREAT idea!!! Why didn't I think of that? I have not had the SPD problems that you have had, but in the past couple weeks my body has been dumping relaxin hormones and now when I walk I feel like my legs are going to fall off, and I get these horrible cramps and shooting pains in my thighs - one of them last night actually made me howl. So yeah, electric scooter cart sounds pretty good to me too!!!

This has been the most emotional pregnancy I've had, and it doesn't help to have DH remind me of how much of a bitch I've been. Someone needs to learn how to keep his mouth shut If a man could just go through what we go through for one day My vagina hurts like hell, I'm sleeping 15 minutes an hour at night, my boobs are leaking out of control, I get braxton hicks contractions every 20 minutes or so during the day, how many times have I urinated already today?

I'm sorry, didn't mean to vent in your thread but I can relate with the grouchyness. s:

Mooliette, this is the perfect place to vent a bit. I showed this to my DH this morning, and it was nice to see that I am not the only emotionally crazy pregnant lady around.
I woke up this morning with and awful backache, nausea and a little diarrhea. I have hardly had any BH. At least it beats the 3 weeks of prodromal labor I had with my last one. I am 37 weeks today...
I am being especially intolerant of my not listening and clingy children today. At least I have choir practice tonight so I will be out of the house and even get a little bit of alone time driving in the car. I think it is just because I don't feel good.
Not too much longer I suppose.
I put my order in with my midwife for my water to break first so I can call the people who need to be called to watch children or travel (I have a friend coming from Virginia). Anyway, my midwife just said- yeah do you want a prescription for that?

I like the scooter idea, but I went to the grocery store last night. All by myself It took me a while because I had to take my daughter (and really, the rest of my family because I am not cooking 2 different dinners every night) off of peanuts, eggs, gluten and soy. One of those things seem to be in everything. : At least I know how to cook and as a general rule use whole foods, but there is wheat in worchestershire sauce. It's stuff like that...

Anyway, I am rambling and have already hit my grouchyiness quota for the day. I just wish my DH could come home from work and "make everything better."

the question is, how many times have i peed in the LAST HOUR??? and how many times have i changed my undies?????

i think i deserve a big gold star for not physically maiming my dh this pregnancy. i have had a really rough time and sometimes he has been the most neglectful, uncompassionate ass i could imagine. several times i imagined doing Very Bad Things to him. the worst thing is the unhelpful behavior he has modeled for ds who has copied his crap. grrrrr

so, i think if you have NOT killed your dh the last 35 or so weeks, you're doing great!!!

Now dh asks every 10 minutes, "Doing alright?" or some such thing. It is almost as annoying as him not giving a damn the past 9 months! Did I just suddenly get pregnant this week?

Yes. That.

I had to leave the house today (against my will) and EVERYONE I ran into asked me "how are you feeling?"
"ready to have that baby yet?" No. I'd like to drag this out for another 3 months I'm having such a GOOD. TIME.

Oh. And the next person who asks me why I haven't just scheduled a c-section (because then I'd know when things were going to happen!) is going to get a roundhouse style kick to the head. I mean it.
