Today has been a really sucky day! I have hormones from hell for the first time this pregnancy and cried for a good part of the afternoon. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Just when things seem to go good something bad always seems to happen. So far the little one is going fine (YEAH!), but things elsewhere are a mess.<br><br>
Stupid typical things like cars and money that seemed to be figured out but now arent. And of course stupid me I went to the mall this morning and walked my butt off and was super tired when I got home (At 9:45 this morning!). My mom called and I cried on the phone to her about all the crap going on with the car, how I was tired etc, and first thing out of her mouth in a not so pleasant tone was "your not pregnant are you?!" (she doesnt know yet) So yeah not what I needed. We want to wait to tell our parents after the ultrasound and right around the time our money situation was supposed to be getting better so it wouldnt be such a big deal. (well who knows when the money will be getting better- our stupid refinance is turning into hell!) I just cried, I just know telling them is going to turn our happiness into this big burden. I want them to be happy, to celebrate with us and not make this little one feel like its a burden and not the right time etc. I know my mom will eventually be excited and will be there for me, but I know she isnt going to make it easy. I dont ever want this little one to feel like it was a mistake or a surprise, I want to enjoy my pregnancy....yet I cant seem to <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>

Things will get better - I promise <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I had a day like that the other day, too. Just remember that it is exhaustion, too! Our bodies are working very very hard right now, but this too shall pass. When I start feeling overwhelmed (we have some $$ issues and others, as well) I start thinking about the precious baby growing in me, and I tell myself to be strong for him/ her. And for my ds as well.....Hugs to you mama!

I've been horrible to live with lately. DD fought bedtimes and naptimes for the past two days and I actually yelled at her yesterday for not sleeping. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> She cried, I cried, I felt like a tiny sorry excuse for a human being. I feel so awful about that. It wasn't her fault, and I went into her room with the intent of NOT yelling but it just came out all at once. I fought with DH yesterday over absolutely nothing... the way he said something, the way he looked at me when he said it, who knows. I have very little control over my emotions and it can be plain scary sometimes. If I can't control the emotions at least I need to get better at counting to 10 and just letting the steam out instead of taking it out on loved ones!! And it's not just anger that is amplified... I cry more, I laugh hysterically over nothing, I feel so happy sometimes I could just bust and then a minute later I'm sobbing at a love song on the radio. I feel everything more strongly and have a harder time explaining why I feel that way.<br><br>
so (((hugs))) I understand, and I do remember that it gets better and the first tri is the worst for the emotional roller coaster.

:LOL I commute 45 miles each way to school 3x/wk, and I've been noticing a steady increase in the amount of road rage that I have. I've been driving like a freakin' maniac! Oh, sure, I'm afraid to eat soy because of phytoestrogens, but hey, driving 20 mph over the limit, that's just a-ok!<br><br>
I also have a growing list of songs I'm not allowed to play on my ipod because of uncontrollable crying issues...hee hee! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nut.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nut">
