It's one of the classic signs of both PMS and pregnancy: mood swings of unbelievable proportions. They can vary from week to week or minute to minute, and it's really a roulette game when it comes to predicting the highs or the lows.
I have been either the biggest bi&@# in the world to everyone that looks at me funny, or I'm crying in the middle of Wal-Mart because they don't have something I needed. Now am I the only one, because my husband is getting frustrated. - Katy I have been terribly hormonal and I don't remember being this bad with my first. Just last night I started crying because my guy was teasing me about being in a bad mood, and then in another breath I was Linda Blair with my head spinning around... then I started laughing. I am so beyond "me" that it is almost freaky. - Colleen When talking to my best friend today, I told her that I feel guilty being so upset. I am happy I am pregnant and I know the reason I am feeling emotional is because of the pregnancy. I cannot understand how I could let myself feel sad, while I am so happy. She said it's because I am a normal pregnant woman! - Jill
It's true: This is all completely normal, and, like PMS, is largely due to the massive amounts of hormones coursing through your body. No doubt, it's made worse by all the other physical changes you're encountering, as well as because of the hopes and concerns weighing heavily on your mind as you approach the birth of your little lad or lass. Do your best to keep your emotions in check, and do what you must to avoid sticky interpersonal situations. Nighttime is not typically a good time to pick a fight. In a mood? Remember that you do not always have to answer a ringing phone. That's what voice mail was made for. And if something that happened earlier in the day is still troubling you at bedtime, get out a piece of paper and write down three things you will do to work on the situation tomorrow. You'll sleep better with this stress off your chest.
