It seems like everyone is having trouble dealing with preggo hormones, mood swings, etc. I have to say, I haven't had any of that. I've been in a pretty good mood most of the time.
I stayed on my depression meds this time (I went off them when I was preggo w/ DS) so maybe that's why, but I'm actually (gulp!) enjoying my pregnancy these days. If you knew me when I was preggo before you would never believe I could say that!
One of the reasons I don't post much lately is that things have been going pretty well and pretty uneventful. Sure, I have round ligament pain, occasional heartburn, and my first ever varicose vein (ick!) but I've actually been pretty happy, except for work & money worries.
Also, my DH and family are usually great, so no big complaints there lately. My only major complaint is my boss, as usual. She's still as impossible to deal with as ever, but that would be the same even if I wasn't pregnant
I am not having huge hormonal mood swings (at the moment - knock on wood). Sure, I have my down moment, but that's usually when I am way tired and have way too much going, so I think that would happen pregnant or not. Most days things are going pretty well, and I am enjoying things for the most part.
To the Amazing Kelly: Thank you once again!! Amazing only begins to cover it.
I am not having mood swings (I am sure my DH will tell you differently), but I find myself extremly irritable... but I have been that way since I got pregnant, so I figured it was just one of those things for me.
I'm kind of in the middle. Even though I am on an iron supplement, I am still really tired. The fatigue keeps me pretty short-tempered. I am really irritable and very quick to anger. It's not first trimester bad, but I can still be difficult to deal with.
I am glad to hear things are going well with you!! That's great! You are lucky not to be hormonal. I almost went CRAZY on dh yesterday because he pretty much used up all the peanut butter I just bought in 2 days. I felt the rage building up inside but I didn't say a word and just went to bed. I am so glad I didn't say anything because when I woke up this morning and thought about how mad I was, I felt so dumb. I mean, it's just peanut butter.
I haven't had any issues and I'm not an emotional person anyways. I'm exactly the same pregnant as I was non-pregnant except a growing belly Dh has it too easy, LOL! I really have nothing to complain about and I've enjoyed my pregnancy so far.
I like you have stayed on my meds for anxiety and I can honestly say I am not hormonal AT ALL. I have been the same......even DF says I am normal. Every once in a blue moon I will act a little hormonal. Well I guess DF doesn't like that much because he won't even LET me blame it on the hormones when it happens. He expects me to have virtually NO mood swings EVER haha.

I agree with the pp, my dh got off pretty lucky. I think my temperament has pretty much stayed the same. Not to say I'm all sunshine and roses but I'm petty much my regular self. I'm trying to stay positive about most things because it is what is best for me and my family. The only real difference I have found is that things that I would normally find sad now make me cry a little. I guess I'm just feeling a little more empathetic than usual. More motherly?
