I completely flipped out at work today. I got to work irritated because my brother decided last minute to tell me he's not going to college this semester. He waited too long to fill out his FAFSA (read: He wanted me to do it). That really pissed me off because the whole deal was he can continue to live with me as long as he's full time in school...and he doesn't even care! He drives a wedge between me and DH. DH stays up his butt about doing stuff around the house, trying to make him into a "man" and my brother completely blows everyone off and does what he wants. It's getting to the point where I'm gonna end up kicking him out.
ANYWAY, I was mad at that, then I get to work and (I work in receiving) a vendor comes in, doesn't speak and kicks one of my boxes that I needed - across the floor. I went OFF. He had the nerve to call me a *itch, which just pissed me off even more. Then of course, he blamed everything on the pregnancy. I told him he better be damn glad I'm pregnant or else I'd beat the $hit out of him. Not quite professional, but he kicked my stuff across the room and then calls me a *itch. ooookay.
DH called and managed to get me calmed down.
For those of you that have kids already, am I gonna be attitude-ish for 9 months?
Ha! I can't answer your questions since this is my first. But I'm having similar issues at work. I haven't told my bosses yet, but I've been more difficult to deal with I'm sure. I've blown up a couple times (although I admit this isn't completely out of character for me). But yesterday I decided to take a "zen" approach and take a backseat and be less opinionated. After those couple days of explosiveness, my boss asked me yesterday if I was feeling alright bc I was being quiet. My boss is a mess, so its going to take a lot of mental energy to keep me calm and destressed. I worry about my stress levels and how it affects the baby.
Its rude he blamed it on the pregnancy. Guys piss me off when they say things like that. That vendor just sounds like a total turd. Who kicks things in a professional setting?
I can't answer. I'm a lawyer - I basically picked the only career where being an evil ***** is part of the job description.
My managing attorney's wife is two weeks ahead of me in her pregnancy and he is calling this "living hell, round 2" since we had kids a few weeks apart last time, too. He can't escape the crazy preggo women! Muahahahahaha.
I was told when I took this position that I'm, "Too nice". I'm supposed to be mean and hateful so that people (men) don't walk all over me. I've actually come a long way, but I'm not a mean/hateful person. I think if I ask you to do something, that's your job to do, I should only have to ask once. THEN I get to being evil if it's not done. Generally because I catch crap cuz the issue should have been handled.
The guy that kicked my stuff, he's been servicing my store for 4 years...so we've known each other awhile and he knows exactly what to say to push my buttons.
I MUST just be being hateful today - my brother came in, changed and was walking out of the door and I told him he needs to clean the kitchen tomorrow. "Whatever Jess" and out the door.
No wonder why I'm a *itch. Maybe I should go to bed and maybe...have a better day tomorrow.
Honestly, if it were me, I wouldn't need to be pregnant for that to set me off. What kind of jerk comes in and kicks your stuff all over the place.

Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
I have what I call "Pregnancy Rage". It comes out of no where for no real reason. I know it's comng but I can't stop it. The whole time my mind is screaming "Shut up Shut up Shut up" but my mouth can't stop! LOL! I have reminded my hubby of thiswonderful time so he doesnt' take any of it personally. And then about at the 5 month mark I will cry over anything and everything. And then I go back to raging.
I really want a baby but I can honestly say I HATE BEING PREGNANT! LOL!!! I wish I could just buy one at Target.
I agree and I think that if he was honest, so would my husband! LOL!
