hi everyone
I'm a first time mommy to be, due in september. I've gotten lots of reading material on being pregnant and what to expect, along with kind words and advice from family so I'm trying my best so far. I'm wondering if anyone else has crazy hormones/emotions...almost uncontrollable so to speak. Like I cry at anything and everything, it all makes me cry, sometimes I cry for no reason and once I start I can't stop. Ive been trying to tell "hubby" that im emotional and everything is gonna trigger some sort of emotion, that I have learned that this is all a normal thing of pregnancy. Im the type of person who doesn't like people seeing me cry so I tend to hide it alot, often times just 'loosing it' when im home alone with my pets. We have two boys also, ages 10 and 2 whom we share custody with with their mother, I'm also careful to watch my mood and keep my emotions in check when we are all together cuz they wouldn't understand so I don't want to scare them...they see me as more mommy then their own mother, they've asked dad if she can be replaced so having a step mother and my real mommy, as much as I loved hearing it its still hard to hear. But anyways im just wondering if anyone else is experiencing the crazy emotions etc and if you have any tips on how to deal with them all...thanks!

i'm not preggo at the moment, but i'm sure there are other ladies here who are going through the same things.

being a second mommy can be rough, but so rewarding at the same time!!

Hey Hun!! Glad you found the board! It's totally normal! I used to cry at the drop of a hat, or just go off on Keith and tell him i wanted a divorce.. Dont worry you're not alone!! and we need to get together and have lunch sometime! afterall you DO need to meet Ava before she is 1, and i need to see you before you have the baby!

Welcome to the board!

I know what you mean about emotional changes. There were certain radio ads that could get me crying when I was pregnant... hormones are crazy things!

welcome to the board!

I wish I had advice for you about emotions and pregnancy... but I don't really. Try to find something that makes you laugh whenever you are feeling sad, that works for me! If it gets to where you are feeling sad a lot, then you should talk to your provider about it - post partum depression can start during pregnancy, and if they know about how you are feeling, then they can help you deal with it. They might have some ideas about how to help now, too.
