Jeez...It's the long weekend, no work, no responsibilities, and I'm sitting here on the couch DEPRESSED for some unknown reason.

I need a kick in the pants. (Or maybe a nap?) :

Anyone else having hormone mood swings??

i know what you mean. this weekend dh was home and we actually got to spend time with him and i just felt sort of melancoly for no reason. now he is gone back to work and it is even worse. it just makes me irritable and i don't want to be around anyone...but i've been like that for a while actually.

Ahhhhh....when you said "hormones" I was thinking of the other type. The randy-as-a-teenager hormones have invaded my body. :

I get a little moody too, but I think it just a serious lack of sleep. Are you up at night? Worried about things? Need to do some talking?

Pregnancy is a freaky ride somedays and a lot of emotional things can come up during this time. When I was pregnant with my first, I had terrible blues associated with becoming a mother. It was fear on my part, lots of unresolved feelings I had towards my own mom and it tore me up for a long time. I finally saw a therapist for the third trimester and worked out a lot of emotional crap that I didn't even realize was weighing me down.

Be gentle with yourself. Honor the feelings you are having.

Frugal, food growing mama to my four loves
