This is funny considering it's my 4th child.

Did any of you feel total PMS symptoms before going into labor. I am so irritable today I can't stand myself let alone my family.

I can't remember feeling this way before. Maybe I'm just spent. I don't know.

I don't remember. I'm really irritable and bitchy right now, though.

Count me in too! I forgot I could feel this way.

I was rereading "The Baby Catcher" recently and the author's labor started that way--PMS symptoms.

I didn't feel that way with DD1 or DD2. But I felt like a caged animal at the start of DD3's labour. I actually said to DH when I was pacing around the L&D room, that I was in a very irritated state and I didn't know how to calm myself down. It was very strange (I'm not normally an irritated person). I could not get settled.

Well, that was yesterday.

I woke up today with contractions and show. I'm still not convinced that it's going anywhere...

At least there's comfort (for me) in numbers. I'm glad I'm not alone!

Add me to the incredibly irritated club. I just can't stand people right now. Any people. Even the ones I love--in fact, they're almost the worst because I have to be around them more than the others. The other ones that don't live in my home with me, I can just ignore or walk away from.

My husband and best friend were just joking about this the other night. With my last two pregnancies, I worked with my best friend. With this one I am at home, so they were complaining how nasty I can be when I am pregnant.

It IS frusterating, isn't it? The 1st thing I thought when I woke up this AM literally was "OMG, I'm getting my period!" Achy & gross to the extreme! And bitchy too. *sigh* Since I am 37.5 weeks...this could go on quite a while too! UGGGHHHH...

My intuition was right. The baby is here!! My bitchy was b/c of impending labor for sure.

Add bitchiness to the list of signs of labor. LOL!!
