And I don't mean in the pagan sense....<br><br>
I am seriously so emotionally touchy right now. If someone even looks at me the wrong way, I get pissy and instantly irritated. I'm hoping that I'm not the only one who's so emotionally sensitive...

I am super irritated today, and I think a large part of it is the constant pain from this little darling kicking me in the ribs and pushing on them until they burn. It stops mostly when I stand up, but my feet are swollen so I try not to be on them too much. I'd like to put them up and there is NOWHERE in our house where I can get them above heart level, so I feel like I'm being tortured by my baby. I've also been super hungry, and too focused on cleaning to feel like cooking much. Combine that with my 2 oz bladder, and aching knees, and the fact my rotten old sewing machine is doing a crappy job on the diapers I'm working on, and the spool of thread I was using wasn't wound right so I had to throw it away and I don't have much in the way of light colored thread to finish the job - I am just super annoyed. Dishes are piling up in the kitchen, and I don't feel like dealing with them. Ugh. I need a break, and I am so ready to eject this bruiser of a baby.<br><br>
On the bright side, DH finally moved the furniture around in the dining room and for the first time ever, I set up all my china in the china cabinet, got the dining room table where I wanted it and had leftover space for the baby swing! I had painted the dining room way back in Sept just before ending up in the hospital, and DH had just stuck things randomly around the room. It's driven me absolutely crazy for many months because it looked like a storage area. Now the house is starting to look homey and it's not going to be so embarrassing when people come over.<br><br>
So you'd think I'd be really happy now, but nope, I feel irritated for no reason at all!! DH doesn't know it though. I'm hiding it well.

Due date crash.<br><br>
Just saying, witch may not be a great word choice. A lot of us here are pagan or wiccan and take offense to it used that way. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"> for the emotional touchiness, though. You're not the only one!

Um, totally.<br><br>
DH is really sick with the flu and I ran my son's sixth birthday solo today (ten six year old boys!) and I was totally wicked to DH all day-and he's really, truly sick. I couldn't stop feeling sorry for myself long enough to even get DH a tylenol...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
I've since apologized but I'm glad I'm not alone!

I actually am Wiccan. I had to go with witch because I wasn't sure about using the b-word in posts. I do apologize for the use of it in that way - and wish you all a happy belated Beltane! I'm headed to Popham Beach in Maine today to dance around the Maypole with 100 of my closest pagan friends. Festivities start at 10am, so if you're in the area, please come by!!<br><br>
Blessed be...

I called DH a lazy a-hole today, because he wouldn't help me clean the windows and bathrooms. I totally freaked out, because there is so much left to do before baby comes. He slept til 9:30, we went shopping, then he took a nap. UGH! KILLS ME.<br><br>
Unfortunately, DH is the one who gets the brunt of my moodiness.

DD and I are butting heads, and since it's not fair to take it out on her, I've just been bottling it up.<br><br>
Yesterday, at a big gathering of folks at the beach, I started crying. Later that afternoon, my husband would be going to a birthday gathering for his best friend that I couldn't go to, because it was in the bar section of the restaurant, so someone had to stay home with DD. I was B*I*T*T*E*R about it, and frankly royally sick of spending time alone with DD. So everyone else is hanging out, watching our kids playing in the sand and on the playground, and I just start bawling.<br><br>
Luckily, someone stepped up to watch DD, and I went with DH and felt better.<br><br>
But if anyone fails to jiggle the toilet handle again, or taco bell leaves the sour cream off my burrito again, I am not responsible for my actions.

Oh yeah. I don't want to be alone but I want to be left alone if that makes any sense. DH is out of town so I invited family to stay for the weekend. They have been super helpful getting some nesting done but I still get irritated. So I am glad they're here but I don't want them to do anything that will bother me and there is absolutely no telling what is going to bug me. My poor family. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I totally snapped at DH the other day cause he spilled some water from the tea kettle (it was COLD water) and he yelled "F*CK!" right in front of DS. Of course, that just spiraled me into being pissed about everything.<br><br>
Then yesterday, I just could not stop crying all effing day long. I cried so much that my eyes still hurt when I woke up this morning. And today I don't feel much better.

I'm also on the emotional roller coaster... Tears one day, happy the next and last week a full 24 hours of the deepest, darkest blues. For the first time in my life, I thought, "This is what true depression feels like." Fortunately it went away the next day. I also get easily peeved at my DH. Poor guy, he's tiptoeing around me like I'm a timebomb. It's like I expect him to be psychic and just intuit my needs. The other night he very sweetly brought cupcakes home for dessert and I almost burst into tears when I opened the bag and discovered that they were chocolate. Didn't he know I wanted vanilla!?!? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">

I have been very grouchy lately as well. Mostly because my sleep patterns are farther off than usual. I just CAN'T sleep at night...which leads to a nap during the day...which leads to being awake at night...<br><br>
Plus, my DH farms and is in "a busy time" right now and hasn't been coming home until 2-3 am. So, IF I am asleep by then he wakes me up showering etc. and then I'll be awake until he leaves in the morning around 6:30. I was crying about it last might and did manage to calmly explain I was just soo tired and wished he could come home earlier. But, I wanted to yell and scream and throw a big fit. I am just sick of it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> This really made me laugh. Even if they do remember to put in on why is it always in one big clump? How hard would it be to spread that sour cream out across the whole burrito? I've seen how they do it. It's like a calking (sp?) gun. Simply move your hand from left to right, or right to left, or up and down, or down and up, or something while squeezing trigger! Don't just blob it on! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

*raises hand*<br><br>
I have to fess up, im a complete nutcase this week. At least i feel like one. I normally dont hit this till about 2 weeks before i give birth. Sigh, my poor dh. Last night he spent till 9:30 pm helping me move furniture and redo the entire apartment, only to have to keep moving things. AND he had spent all day at drill. He's totally overworked and underpaid right now and i feel badly for him. But then i get a wild hair up my arse and i stop caring and get all crazy moody on him. This has been my moodiest pregnancy by FAR. Normally im so even keel and zen. That has ALL gone out the window!<br><br>
Sooo ready to be post partum and i have been stocking up on SamE just in case these moods persist!

Yep. There's been a few random spats between DH and I lately that I can now look back on and say they were thanks to me and my hormones. :/<br><br>
I am seriously so tired of how sensitive I am at times. I am not used to being THIS sensitive. ARGH.

I am 35 wks today and an emotional mess and way agressive. I think part of it stems from lack of sleep, since I get about 3 hours a night. Then to top it off I find out my mom isn't coming as soon as I had hoped, and now I am worried that my plans are all going to the crapper.....Sigh. I am trying trying trying to keep it together...

Yeah, I've been feeling totally irritated at the universe lately <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">. Everything pisses me off and it's hard not to just be mean all the time. I also figured it was just due to too little sleep, so I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
