So, I’m 37 weeks pregnant. I am overjoyed at the pregnancy and have had a fairly easy time of it. The problem is, over the last week or 2, I get in these MAJOR funks and cannot snap out of it no matter what. I just have to wait them out.
I never had major PMS (moodiness), and I can usually get out of bad moods through being logical/reasonable. However, I feel like now things that set me off, I cannot even let it go even if it resolves itself. Since I don’t have any previous experience with this, and it’s now an extreme hormonal surge, is there any advice on how to snap out of it, especially since my usual strategies aren’t working? My husband listens but does not comfort me and sometimes actually makes me get more “excited”.
I don’t think I’m depressed or anything, but I just get extra fixated if someone gives me a “look” or rubs me the wrong way. For example, I’m fixating on something my SIL did that isn’t even THAT bad, it’s just not how I prefer to be treated.

Ah yes!!! The time is near. I found that the best cure for the funk that you are describing is….
In the meantime, pamper yourself in the next few weeks.
During that time, I had so many people telling me I looked fat (PIH) that I could ruminate on it all the time if I let myself!

Yeah, I got that way too! The only thing that could snap me out of it was fixating on something else. I mean something that requires TOTAL concentration. But even then, once I was done with that one thing I would go back to whatever bothered me before. I became really grumpy that last month! Hope you start feeling better (or even better, as MrsDG said, DELIVER!).

ohhhhh girl everyone gets like that. your all hormonal and uncomfortable and ready for that baby to COME OUT! haha. You can read a book to get your mind off whatever is bothering you, or have a designated friend to vent to(that person was my mom-poor thing). I would just pamper myself every once in a while. Go get a pedicure for the swollen feet or a maternity massage!
