Is anyone else feeling really moody? I love my family, but everyone is getting on my nerves. Even some of my close friends are too critical for me and I find myself avoiding them. I don't feel depressed, just tired of everyone. I am scared because I am only 25 weeks, I can't go through this for the next 3 months. Hopefully its a mood swing. Any suggestions?
I hope you are all having a nice weekend

Sorry you are moody. Me too. I got all cranky at church this morning. Strangers were on my nerves.
This may sound stupid, but try to take some really slow deep breaths. Inhale deeply, hold it for a sec. then let it out slowly. Think of things that make you happy and bring you joy. Say a prayer. Give someone you love a big hug. Listen to your favorite song over and over.
If all that fails, turn on some Sex and The City reruns or Friends episodes! lol
Give yourself time away from everyone. Seriously. When I get like that, I try to get off by myself, usually strolling through a store just looking at things. If browsing shops doesn't do it for you, then find something that relaxes you and just get away for a while. I have found that its the best way to get past the frustration with everyone.
These mood swings probably won't last the whole time, but they certainly will come and go. Talk to your family and tell them you are in a mood and ask for some time alone. If they know whats going on with you they might be more understanding and back down.
I too will get edgy sometimes. Often I have had just enough of people and need time to myself. That is usually not like me. Taking time alone is a good thing. It helps clear your head. It also saves you from lashing out at someone that you really do not want to.
