So is this totally pregnancy related?

I've not been terribly emotional or moody at all this pregnancy, but in the past 2 weeks it's started and has been ramping up a bit. The past two days I have been ridiculously ticked off, angry, emotional, upset -- you name it. Super cranky and doing my best to just keep my mouth shut before saying awful things to dd or dh.

Today, I have spent at least 50% of the day crying, over nothing and everything. The only times I've not been crying is out in public having lunch or at my oldest soccer game -- but as soon as I'm back in the car or even just sitting on the couch at home, I'm a mess.

I don't recall being this emotional at the end last time (37w now). I so hope this is going to get better because I'm a huge mess. I want to pick up some more Rescue Remedy because it's helped in the past, but really hope that this is just a bad couple days. I expect to go closer to 41w since both DDs came then, but don't think I can handle these moods for 3+ more weeks.

I would suspect that it is, especially if you have been uncomfortable and not sleeping well lately as most of us are not at this point... hope you hold a beautiful baby soon that will lift your spirits!

I am with you Momma... being uncomfortable & lackof sleep makes me really snippy. I apologize to DH and my girls; they are really understanding. I have been trying to squeeze in naps here & there. Helps a little (if I am able to actually sleep!)

I keep thinking...think how far we have come!!! And soon I will meet this new one!

I'm incredibly unsocial right now. We have friends who wanted to get together today and I was like "no way". Dh left town for the day and it was so nice to have one less person in the house. And he brought me home a pound of chocolate peanut butter fudge!

I had the biggest emotional melt down last night. I can't tolerate too much sensory stimulation and we were at my sister's house last night and it was hot, loud and brght. I freaked out, grabbed my stuff and walked home crying. When I got home DH had locked the door so I had to knock for him to let me in. While I waited I started sobbing. I cried so hard I started hyperventilating. It was a scene!! I finally clamed down and had to admit to myself that it was pregnancy related emotions. I had no control!! Like PMS x 100!!! AHHHH the glamours of pregnancy!!
