Irritability & moodiness is this a preggo symptom for you?

Okay for me irritability and plain out witchiness (without the W, lol) is a major pregnancy symptom - especially with my girls. Now the only problem is it is also a PMS symptom for me too. The difference is with PMS it goes away in a few days and with pregnancy it sticks with me for 9 months, lol. Well not the whole 9 months, but I am quite a moody pregnant person. Anyhow, is this a pregnancy symptom for anybody else?...
