Normally I’m fairly laid back but normally I’m not in my last month of pregnancy. And people annoy me now to a huge extent.
My husband and I are going to be away from the house for the next two weekends and my husband was home today so there was a ton of stuff I wanted to get done but my friend came over and wouldn’t leave and just kept saying I needed to come over to her house and we could make baby stuff (which is nice but really not what needs to be done right now, I have a crapton of clothes) and then putting on a guilt trip. I usually can brush stuff like that off and figure out a way to say thanks maybe later, but after a few attempts I just burst into tears – poor girl felt really bad and I felt bad for making her feel bad when she was trying to be nice but she was driving me crazy.
Then later my poor husband made the mistake of saying he was being a nice guy and helping me clean the house / set things up – which released a tirade of ‘is this not your child too that we’re setting up for now.’
And then I ordered pizza and had to keep myself from hanging up on the guy. He sighed and told me to try and listen when I asked him if he could repeat the specials (I just couldn’t hear) and was just a grump. Normally, I can brush it off as people have a bad day but I wanted to reach through the phone and punch him. So I just said my order quick and said I have to go, bye, click.
Is it normal to have PMS on crack for the last month? How to control?

Im only at the end of month 6 and I just got to where you are lol. I can only imagine it might get worse…my poor husband and unknowing strangers hahah! Maybe its the surge of hormones combined with the exhaustion and feeling of being DONE with pregnancy. Hang in there, you are almost done!

Uh, I’m only 15 weeks and sometimes feel the same way :/
Example: Yesterday was my brother’s birthday and my parents guilted Darling Husband and I into traveling the OPPOSITE direction of where we needed to be later that evening to have dinner with them at my brother’s favorite restaurant. We sit down and start eating and my father pulls out his phone, on full volume, and starts going through his ringtones. In the middle of the restaurant. It was to the point where I was trying to talk to my mother and I couldn’t concentrate on what she was saying anymore. I turned to my father and asked him if he had listened to all of them enough yet to which my mother gets all defensive, “Oh stop, Kaitlin…it’s not that bad.” YES IT IS! People are STARING. Who does that?! And WHY am I the only one at our table bothered by it?! I excused myself to the restroom to take a few deep breaths and when I came back to the table he had stopped and we resumed our meal but c’mon man! Common sense!

I’m 27 weeks and noticed a huge change in my mood. I think it’s a combo of the heat, starting to be uncomfortable, and the hormones. I feel awful for my husband b/c most of it gets taken out on him. But he just bites his tongue and lets me be crazy!

Its completely normal. I remember when I sent Fiance to get me a salad thats what I wanted for some reason and I ALWAYS get ranch for my salads but at this specific place I wanted their house dressing and A LOT of it. Well I forgot to mention that so he got ranch.. OMG I freaked and made him go back and get a new one!! I felt like such a brat. I had many mood swings. I think it has not only to do with the hormones but the fact that at this point your so uncomfortable, and possible bc of that not getting the rest you need. It will get better. 🙂

I think part of the problem is the BH contractions are freaking me out, I know they can last for weeks and weeks but part of me is like OK she could be here tomorrow. So I’m freaking out about what hasn’t been done and what needs done NOW (and going away for weekends isn’t helping things out.)
So I’m saying things like ‘could you do this’ or ‘I don’t think now is a good time for that’ but I actually mean things as a command and more like ‘Do It and Do It Now’ or ‘NO, there’s no way I’m doing that right now and don’t try to make me.’ Sometimes I think I should just be blunt so hubby/friends don’t think I’m persuadable at the moment but the other part of me is putting on this facade of OK, still easy going, until they disagree or keep pushing and then I crack and either cry or be a bit too blunt.
