...at the world in general. I have been getting annoyed at even total strangers. It's definitely not like me to hate people so much, and this is not how I want to be before the birth of my child. Is this part of pregnancy or am I losing my mind?
I'd say it's part of pregnancy<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/FIREdevil.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="devil"><br><br>
I get like that from time to time, and I remember distinctly feeling overwhelmingly hateful off and on as my due date approached (and especially after it passed!) when I was pregnant with my son.<br><br>
I called them my "power surge" days and seemed to get a heck of a lot done...I channeled my energy into productivity. People tend to get out of your way if you are this big-pregnant with a scowl and a look of determination on your face. ...or you'll get some schmuck who will stop you in your tracks and demand a smile or some other inane BS thing that will make you want to throttle him...<br><br>
I did find that reading spiritual things about birth helped bring me out of my funk. Birth stories or things written by midwives or other birth type people. But that's one thing that makes me personally feel more connected to womankind, the human race, once again, in a new and refreshed way.<br><br>
But so does something delicious like a chocolate frosted glazed donut or a glass of red wine or some nachos or chicken wings dipped in ranch dressing or....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:
Count me in. I am feeling completely unreasonable and overwhelmingly testy. I don't want to be around anyone IRL or talk on the phone. Just sit here by the computer and seethe. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">
Mmmmm… nachos... with lots of jalapeños<br><br>
I have been listening to relaxation/meditation/hypno cds. That and not being around strangers. I am an introvert and find myself enjoying being in my own space even more at this time.<br><br>
That said... I do find myself getting very irritated at things that normally wouldn't phase me, but focused relaxing is helping me.
