Alright, I might sound crazy (or insane) but these hormones are kicking my ass these past few days. I’ve felt every emotion from sad to raging mad. Like I’m sitting here at work so pissed off at our system, it keeps freezing. My co worker.. don’t even get me started. I go from mad to crying in about 2.5 seconds and the crying just doesn’t stop. Anybody else get really pissed off over the slightest thing while pregnant or am I alone in this? I’ve always heard of women being emotional, just didn’t know what kind of emotional.

I once cried because my husband ate the last Pizza pocket. I also lost my shit on my boss because he asked me to file something in the middle of a hot flash. Also I can’t get through ‘The Circle of Life’ from The Lion King without bawling my eyes out…no matter what I was doing/feeling before I heard the song.
Yes. The ‘moody pregnant lady’ stereotype is a THING! You’re not alone.

snowflake8 : Thank You! I hate this feeling but there’s no controlling it. I started straight up crying because my fiancé didn’t put enough sugar in the sweet tea. It was like I was 3 the way I was crying..

I’m 20 weeks and the first trimester was AWFUL. I was all over the place emotionally. I snapped at my Darling Husband all the time, even when he was trying to help me when I wasn’t feeling well. We got into a spat at a Chick-fil-a on vacation over barbeque sauce! Lol.
Even though the hormones have leveled out for the most part now, I still feel my emotions deeply. I spent all day at the hair salon and hadn’t anticipated it taking so long, so I was starving when I finally got out of there. Hangry doesn’t even begin to describe how I was feeling!
You are most definitely not alone!

jessxliii : I had a meltdown the other night with my fiancé. My senses are insane.. He was farting and usually I’m totally ok with farting, I grew up with brothers and I’m used to it! Not to mention everybody farts. Well I could smell his, like strong. I was puking, l was furious with him. Then I started crying because he got upset with me for freaking out.. We were a giant hot mess over farting.

mrsstewietobe : I go through phases. There will be a few days where everything in the entire world makes me cry and I’m just cranky 24/7 and then I’ll spend the next 3 weeks practically back to normal. The first trimester was the worst for random mood swings – I legit had a meltdown at a grocery store because my mom very kindly asked me if I wanted a sandwich for dinner and I snapped at her slightly then started sobbing because I was being mean. It was… interesting. And of course, I wasn’t showing so people just thought I was insane.
Sometimes you just have to lay down on the laundry room floor and cry a little bit. Two nights ago I cried at 11 pm because we didn’t have canned crab (yes, seriously. I’ve eaten canned crab like twice in my entire life).
It’s totally fine to have mood swings and be cranky, it’s just when people are disgustingly rude and using pregnancy as an excuse for being like that that really makes me annoyed. I know we’re all different and we all react to pregnancy and the hormone surge in different ways, but treating someone like they’re garbage or beneath you is a personality/character issue, not a hormone issue.
