Have you been accused of having a chip on your shoulder or just being more "No-nonsense" in general?

My mom informed me today that I've become a force to be reckoned with and semi-scary. I feel it's more that I'm getting older and tired of putting up with people's bull-honkey.


Has pregnancy made you harder or softer or are you the same as always?

I've been told a lot that I'm a beeyatch when pregnant. I don't see it that way. Pregnancy makes me not able to tolerate anybody's crap so I will frequently call someone out on it. I think because I am normally so laid back, it comes off as super witchy in comparison.

I am actually nicer pregnant lol. This baby has made me super happy (which is weird because my last pregnancy I was very irritated and depressed the whole time). So not this time!

Depends on who I'm with. With my family I am very no-nonsense anyway. DH says that I'm a B**** when pregnant. Eh, probably. With friends and at work I am the total opposite. My good friends know I don't put up with crap from family though

My BS tolerance has gone WAAY down this pregnancy. I think I've been pretty good about not being a total *****, but I definitely put up with a lot less than before.

I am just so incredibly grumpy when I'm pregnant! I have no patience for anyone. My sister says I make an evil pregnant lady. She's probably right, lol. I had to get off Facebook because everyone's constant complaining was making me even more grouchy than usual.

I am a total hard a** even when not pregnant. I always call people on their BS and i always speak my mind...which means if I think someones being a B or idiotic I make no bones about it and will tell someone to their face how i feel. I get that from my german gran...you did NOT mess with her. Ive always had her spitfire. It may sound weird but without a doubt I am the boss of most of my family. My parents. My brothers. They all treat me as the family matriarch pretty much.
My last pregnancy I was a raving B. Crazy. Not even kidding. I chucked a hot pan at my DH one night when preg...I missed. But I just would get insane mad where I wanted to hurt him. Poor guy.
This pregnancy I cried alot in the beginning. And I am extra lovey to DH. He still does things to piss me off naturally but he is amused by how easygoing and extra lovey I am to him. Hahaha Hes no pushover either his personality is just as strong as mine so we butt heads ALOT. But it takes a strong man to deal with me. Lol a leo and a scorpio...we are fiery for sure.

This pregnancy has turned me into a dithering, indecisive, ninny. I can't make a decision to save my life, and I feel like I'm always crying, backing away from a confrontation, or just feeling overall fragile and vulnerable.

I think I have a lot less patience and tolerance for annoying people and things. I think my tolerance has gone down in general as I've gotten older, but I think lately I have felt (slightly) more comfortable with expressing when I have reached my limit.

In general, I am a bold person who doesn't have any issue with confrontation at all. When certain people set my BS meter off too much, I just stop dealing with them entirely. I don't waste time and energy arguing with them.

"Ain't Nobody Got Time Fo Dat!" - Sweet Brown

My sister says I'm bitter. My mom says I hold a grudge and need to learn how to forgive. I think people just need to stop being a-holes. Why subject myself, and my family to the drama when it is so much easier to just not allow it in my life in the first place?

I am not a crier. I only cry when pregnant or when I'm really really angry. Like I have so much anger inside of me, it leaks out of my eyes because my mouth can't run fast enough.

I have a gf who cries every time she has a bad day and I don't don't understand it. The tears solve nothing. They are not productive.

I suppose I should work on my tolerance for other people's stupidity and make myself a better person. But I would rather just surround myself with people of quality instead. Which I have.

I'm generally a laid back person with the occasional crying spree. This pregnancy has increased my crying episodes and decreased my tolerance for certain things. SO says I've been doing fine mood-wise, but he's not dumb enough to say otherwise. haha. I think I've stayed pretty much the same as before except for the extra crying. My mom says I'm very no-nonsense with my niece and nephew, even when not pregnant. It seems I have even less tolerance now when they're acting up.

Everyone knows I do not put up with crap for anyone normally...some may call me a big ol' B but I don't care! I'm not a crier unless it comes to really sad things like unexpected death and military related things. During pregnancy I think both sides are heightened. My patience are short lived and I yell more than normal...these poor babies!
