Anyone else having this issue? I feel terrible, I am constantly losing patience with DS. I live for nap time lately, isn't that awful?

Yes I with you. Today I asked DS if we would have a good day and he said yes, then I asked if he was going to be sweet to me and he said no so we'll see

We're having sleep issues with him and one of our stupid dogs. So I'm up every hour at night (and with peeing!) it makes me a grumpy guss.

VERY short fuse. I was about ready to lose it yesterday, especially. And let's not even talk about being emotional in general!

Phew, I feel better that I'm not the only cranky one, LOL!

My son just had an almost 3 hour nap (the last hour of which was on my chest) so I am feeling a lot less cranky now, hopefully it'll last at least till DH gets home for supper!

Me too. I have a hard time handling pregnancy. My Dh thinks I'm actually happier when I'm pregnant and when I asked him about this he said "Well after the m/s is gone of course" Yeah.....: I think he just sees me miserable for so long that once I feel better he thinks I'm actually happier than before the pregnancy. Oh well.
I can't wait to feel normal!!!!

This is one of the hardest parts of the pregnancy for me. I have been SO impatient with ds, I hardly recognize myself. And dh and I had one of the biggest fights of our marriage the other night, and over what? I don't even remember. I think he poured some soup down the sink, and it set me off. It's like neverending PMS.

if this is PMS I'm a very lucky woman. I don't normally get any PMS. This stuff is brutal! Same way with each PG.

Add me to the list too. I don't recall ever being so short w/the kids! I think it's the extreme pregnancy-induced fatigue combined w/the shorter and colder days that really just put me in a foul mood.

Mama to my 3 wild things.

Yup, I'm cranky too. My dd gets snapped at way more than she deserves, partly because she's so heavily involved in my lack of sleep. I also got into an extensive (and slightly loud) argument with one of the old guys in my building the other week. Definitely a pregnancy thing. Fortunately I just started a great part-time job, which gives me some time away from home and reduces the financial stress a little bit.
