I'd say for the last week or so, I have been really moody! I just get so irritated, and fly off the handle. I am trying really hard to not get pissed off about little things (especially in front of DD), but these hormones are getting the best of me. DH has definitely noticed. Sometimes he just slides me a snack, as if he hopes this will make me act more normal. Poor guy! This didn't really happen with pregnancy#1. Don't know how to handle it.

Yeah I'm a bit psycho. I notice if I don't get enough rest I'm very similar acting to my cranky toddler. I fly off the handle, then cry. I think for me it is the stress of having to take care of a 2.5 y/o who sleeps erratically and won't let me rest. I also have low blood sugar I'm sure because of my wavering between starvation and nausea. These first few weeks are nearly doing me in. I just hope I can bear the next few weeks because I think that those pregnancy "high" hormones will kick in and I'll be all glowy and happy, for all our sake I sure hope so.

I'm seven weeks and the pyscho part seems to be over. Now I am every even-keeled and calm. More so than normal.

For a couple weeks I felt awful, just like you described. The last few days have been better. With DS I remember feeling calmer and kinder than normal, so I was worried that the bear in me would be there the whole 9 months. Gosh, I hope not! My poor family.

I've been quite moody, which often means more irritable and sensitive, but it hasn't gotten to the point of being a temper thing.

My mood depends on the amount of sleep I have or have not gotten and how sick I feel for that moment. lol

I'm only 12 dpo (BFP on 10 dpo), and this one of only two symptoms to date (the other is constipation)! I can't believe how moody I am. I'm really trying to get this under control for the sake of my husband and 3-year old daughter.

I'm glad I'm not the only one! I've been getting plenty of sleep, and still I seem to get overwhelmed and irritable....so clearly it's the hormones! I'm glad to hear that it subsides after a while...hope that will be soon.

It seems to help if I get a chance to exercise, and if I get out of the house!
