My poor husband has been so sweet, but I've been a bear to live with, and I know it! I've been so moody and irritable lately. Hubby keeps asking me what's wrong and I say "nothing", although inside I just want to break down and cry. Hopefully, it's just the hormones. Like right now, typing this, I have tears in my eyes! ugh...what's wrong with me!??
I keep thinking maybe I'm still overwhelmed by the thought of adding a third child to the family... or depressed that I didn't do it sooner... or feeling like I won't be able to handle the sleepless nights again... or worried about the baby being healthy... I don't know exactly what it is, but I don't feel like I'm handling it very well.
I sure hope this is a phase and it passes soon... I don't remember this from my last 2 pregnancies.
Thanks for listening mommas! I hope all of you are feeling happy today.
I have been feeling MUCH more irritable and moody this pregnancy. I didn't have any of that last time...even DH has commented that I wasn't that way when pregnant with my daughter. One day a couple of weeks ago, he asked me what was wrong, and why I was so irritable. Really? Haha. I just told him that I'm pregnant and that this CAN be a normal part of it. I try not to be, but hormones are powerful things. He seems to be a little more understanding now. I just don't think either of us were expecting it, really.
You are definitely not alone! This is my first pregnancy so I didn't know what to expect. It has not been pretty...I was seriously depressed for a couple weeks, but things seem to be getting better now. I still have my moments, but it's not constant anymore. I really hope that getting that depressed during the pregnancy doesnt mean I'm more likely to have severe post-partum...DH and I were hoping there would be twins so we'd only have to deal with my horomones once...now that we know there's only 1 in there, I'm really hoping that holding the peanut for the first time makes me forget all the bad and makes me willing to suffer through it again for a second child. Hang in there!!
I'm with you there. I don't know if my depression is situational(money and job problems) or hormones. I'm just not myself. I did feel like this for a while with my first pregnancy. Chances are its hormones I feel really down and useless and uninteresting. I have absolutely no energy, and feel like I'm a boring mom and wife right now. Anyway, you're not alone! Also thanks for posting about it because I felt alone too. It will get better!!
