Ugh, my hormones are getting the best of me.<br><br>
Today, I called dh on my way home for lunch (I work, dhis home on spring break - he works for school system.) And, he told me that he and ds were out and about and they wouldn't be home. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I cried.<br><br>
A few night ago, dh was pestering me (which he does all the time). All innocent fun, just poking my side, tickling me, etc. I started crying and told him that I was "touched out" and to give me a break. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
I don't remember feeling this way when I was pg with ds. Right now, I just feel like I have zero control over my emotions.<br><br>
Okay, crying while I write this...

So sorry you're feeling sad <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2">. Don't worry about weeping. This will pass and talking about these emotions may help.

I'm sorry you're having such a hard time Steph. If it's any consolation - I'm right there with you. I am having the absolute worst week. I just want to stay in bed all day and ignore everybody. I'm really depressed this week.

You know, i'm starting to have a twidge of that myself. I feel like I'm happy and in a good mood most of the time, but then if DH pokes me or tickles me or harasses me or in any way irritates me, which normally I enjoy and giggle about, my fuse is about 3 atoms long. And then I say something rude or irritable or downright mean. Especially if i'm sleepy or sleeping or trying to do anything related to sleep or in the morning before breakfast.<br><br>
For example, last week, I was eating breakfast and reading a magazine, a time that is known to be sacred to me. He came out of the shower singing a silly song and got up near me singing to me and rubbing my belly. And I said, "You need to quit that". And he said, "But i'm singing a happy, loving song to you and tadpole!" And I said, "Yes, and that's great, but MY MORNINGS ARE F'ING SACROSANCT!!!!!"<br><br>
I felt kinda bad about it afterwards, but I simply do not want to be messed with. You're not alone! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

I'm sorry to hear you're down, Steph. Would you like to share my tissues? (They're the nice kind with the lotion. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">)<br><br>
I was <i>too</i> happy yesterday and should have known it was coming... DD woke at 6 this morning and although I was able to get her back to sleep, I ended up just lying there in excruciating pain because she wasn't latched properly (of course I can never tell while she's nursing, I just feel it afterwards if she's wrong <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/duh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="duh">). After listening to the two of them snoring away for a while, I gave up, showered and started my day. When DH came downstairs (2 1/2 hours later <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/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">, I just cried. Kinda set the tone for the day... blah.<br><br>
Here's to hoping this stage passes quickly! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2">

Yes, please. I've used all mine up at home and the ones here at work aren't very nice to my nose. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Seriously though, sorry you're having a tough day. I believe me, I know about those latch issues. Though I'm thankful that ds doesn't nurse anymore (even though I cried when he weaned.) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>

Magpiedee - okay, you sound just like me right now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> My ds is just such a touchy/feely little man and then at the end of the night when ds starts rubbing my belly, tickling me, or poking me - it seriously irritates me. I just feel the need for some space sometimes. But, it makes dh feel unwanted and makes me feel bad for needing space. I'm ready for the "golden" trimester to kick in already <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Aw, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">...I'm sorry you're sad. My emotions are all over the map too. I'm not so much irritable right now as very very stressed. My job is not terribly stressful, but right now I am at my wit's end and can't seem to deal with it very well. I have too much on my plate, which is nothing new. Usually, I just do what I can and don't worry about the rest, but lately I'm really stressed about being behind, and I refuse to work overtime.<br><br>
I've also gone through the weepy stage and the manic stage, and I figure they are all going to rotate back into my life at some point in the next few months! Someone here compared being pg to feeling like a 13 year old...that's about how rational I am lately!

Yeah, I know the feeling. I was so bumming this afternoon driving home and I had NO reason whatsoever to feel that way. I forced myself to knock it off cause there is nothing wrong in my life right now but it was just irrational feelings. And I cry when I am singing any good songs now too, which is really annoying cause I am SO not a crier!

Hehehe, oh I hear ya women <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/grouphug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="grouphug"> Sorry to those of you who are feeling depressed <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I hadn't cried in a couple of months since I was @ my wits end w/ morning sickness, but just in the last week the slightest thing will have my eyes filling w/ tears. These hormones are powerful things aren't they!<br><br>
Hugs to you all!!!

Sorry to hear all you mommas are having a rough time. It is strange how emotions come and go at such an alarming rate. I couple weeks ago I was so grumpy and mean. It is better this week. The worst part is not knowing when it will strike again.

Well, so on top of the bad week, I've been having this new pain lately - and bad today (I'm see m/w tomorrow so I'll talk to her about it then) - I go to church because I am the volunteer assistant to the choir director. Dh tried to talk me out of it because I was such a wreck - I walk into the choir director's office and just burst into tears. Ugh! Poor guy didn't know what to think. He's a nice guy, but his partner is pg with their first (only 8 weeks along), so I know he had to be thinking, "Oh boy - is this what we're headed for?"<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I ended up leaving choir practice early and am laying around resting now!
