Irritability & moodiness is this a preggo symptom for you?

Okay for me irritability and plain out witchiness (without the W, lol) is a major pregnancy symptom - especially with my girls. Now the only problem is it is also a PMS symptom for me too.

Anyhow, is this a pregnancy symptom for anybody else?...
