I am really starting to frighten DH I think! 38 wks, I know its not much longer but I can't stand it anymore!<br>
The past 3 or 4 days have been really bad emotionally. One day I am fine, the next I am totally miserable. I am crying or exploding at the drop of a hat! Is anyone else going insane?

I've been crying a lot too... when DH asks what's wrong, I usually just start with "i'm pregnant!" Most of the time I can recognize that I'm just overly hormonal and whatever has set me off isn't really a big deal. Last night, I almost cried just due to not being able to get comfortable on the couch...

I feel really emotionally raw at this point with the pg and the dissertation and now this new found mama-quilt about not spending enough of this last time before having a second with my ds. I think once the diss is done things will really start to feel a little less intense and I can rest more and such.<br><br>
Sorry to hear we are all in the same boat.

From personal experiance, when I became absolutely miserable - I knew I had about a week left to go.<br><br>
I havent hit that level of miserable yet. I keep looking for it, but it hasnt showed up.

I think dh and I would answer that question differently <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I know I'm not my normal happy self, but I'm not totally miserable...yet. I have my good days and bad days. Surprisingly, I haven't really been emotional this pregnancy.

Well I am currently bawling as I type this. Why because the boys and I went to spend the weekend with my mom and dad. As I was getting ready to leave I said to dh please fill the water drawer (we keep bottle water in the fridge in one of the crispers) anyway I went to get water and its empty. He did not fill it. Not only that, he made dinner last night and did not wipe the counters down. I am so sick of feeling this way.

I am just plum cranky. I always get this way at the end and detest the fact I always seem to go late.<br><br>
Am hoping this time I am on 'time"

My doctor gave me a vitamin B12 shot and WHAT A DIFFERENCE IN MY MOOD! I went from <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">: and <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hopmad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hopping mad"> to <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> within 24 hours of getting the shot. the effects lasted for about 10 days and I'm due for another shot tomorrow and I have been feeling quite grouchy again.<br><br>
Funny thing is I got the shot to help with healing not really to improve mood. So I was pleasently surprised to have the mood lift.

Lurking from April... yes I am totally miserable and moody! I am 39w 3d and I just want to bite the head off of anyone that asks anything about babies, birth, labor, dialation, or anything like that. I just want to be invisible till the baby comes.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE<br><br>
my DH was super busy and not home at all with work for the past few days, and some days he didnt even call to check in on me. well once he was home again, and exhausted, i just set into him so angry and laying on the guilt.<br><br>
then i felt SO BAD about yelling at him i was all weepy and feeling sorry for him.<br><br>
OKAAAY -- > so i am sad because i felt so sorry for him - and sorry for him because i was so mean to him.<br><br>

Yep, same here to almost all of above; I tell pretty much anyone that I come across that I'm very grumpy. I'm so glad that all of them look down at my gigantic belly and look back up and say, "I can see why". I love empathy!!

I'm just tired of being sooooo big! I want to be normal again. I almost fell over completely today (lost my balance) while getting DS1 off the school bus. I'm just angry I can't do normal stuff. I've been contracting a lot and just want it to be labor!!!

Mostly I am grumpy because I feel overwhelmed by everything that needs to be done before the baby arrives. I am still working and I wish I could just be doing chores and feeling like I was making progress. I wanted to go swimming today at lunch time and I couldn't cos I was stuck at my desk all day. Grrr. I'm achy!

If I am even slightly tired, I am a bear, and prone to crying for little to no reason. When that happens DS (2.5) pats me gently and says "I know I know" or asks "It's OK?" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Last week I was being a bear, and totally flipped out on a department store worker for first blocking the aisle with a movable clothes rack, and then after I pushed past the rack, she almost ran over DS with it. I stomped my foot down on the rack, stopping it from rolling near DS and she asked what <i>my</i> problem was. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: I tore into her (loudly, but just barely not obscenely loud) for being rude and almost rolling over DS. I think she was on drugs or something... her eyes were glazed over the whole time. Lots of people were shopping nearby and watched me flip out. I felt like this inside and didn't care <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/FIREdevil.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="devil"><br><br>
When I was pg with DS I flipped out (very obscenely) on a large family that cut in front of me in the ice cream line. What person in their right mind would get between a hugely pregnant woman in hot weather (it was July!) and her ice cream???!!!<br><br>
Poor DH. When I am like this <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/FIREdevil.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="devil">, he is like this <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: but he is understanding anyhow.

I've been flipping out on a reg basis. I'm grumpy, moody and just plain mean some days. Other days I'm pretty nice but thats rare. DH sd he is ready to have his nice wife back and I know my kids are too. I was never like this w/ the other two girls so this is all very new for me and its freaking me out.<br><br>
I'm glad I'm not the only one and Dh says that he is too glad to know that he is not the only DH in the same boat! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Our poor guys.

I am miserable right now. back to having leg cramps/throbbing every night. Having indigestion. Not eating too well ...because icecream seems the only thing that doesn't see to take revenge on my esophogus (sp?).<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/sick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sick"><br><br>
I keep getting these bh for about 2 hrs that about 6 minutes apart that of course lead no where.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br><br>
I feel overwhelmed and am wondering if the next time around i should do a homebirth because it drives me crazy that I need to have the house clean all the time because I never know when I am going ito labour.<br><br>
I feel guilty that I haven't been sticking to just good foods because I feel too tired to cook and a sandwich from subway sounds so nice.<br><br>
I am still sad about Granpa passing away and still very worried over my mom who had a heart attack last month.<br><br>
I am so ready to pop. I can barely walk and the weight keeps coming on......!!!!!
