2-week long PMS trip

I feel like I have been riding the PMS train for the past 2 weeks. I am constantly tired, I have no energy, all I want to do is crawl in bed and sleep. I am irritable, somewhat depressed but anxious at the same time, emotional & weepy, and craving chocolate. What is wrong with me? My dr. did tell me at my last appt (29 weeks) that estrogen is surging to the brain right now, so maybe that's it?? But why would it last this long?
I didn't feel this way until a couple of weeks ago.
Anyone else feeling this way? Aggghhh.

OMG me too!! Well, not exactly the same as you. But the fatigue, lack of energy, depressed/emotional/etc. is all me for the past 2 weeks. But I do think mine is related to the on/off sore throat and cough that I have had as well. It's like a long drawn-out cold with flu-like symptoms but not really the flu?? Ugh. I seriously do wish I could just stay in bed every day. And I'm feeling so whiny about how uncomfortable I am and how much stuff we have to get done before the baby comes.

Anyway, I hear ya! I desperately hope it's not going to be like this for the entire 3rd tri. :confused:

I don't normally get PMS in the first place, but that's a fabulous word for what I've been feeling for a while now. Smile I just sort of attributed it to having too many balls in the air to keep track of, and not a whole lot of energy to focus--- but it would make sense that it has something to do with hormones. I look forward to outgrowing this phase... heh.

Yeah, dh came home today with a little mini box of chocolate and I said what is this for and he said, "its for the next time I piss you off, so I can get back into your good graces." I felt bad about it but I'm just unable to help it...

I am feeling that way too. I told one of my co-workers yesterday that I am just DONE with work. I just want to be at home sleeping or getting ready for the baby. I have been tired, achey, and just extremely fuzzy-brained. Having a hard time concentrating on much of anything. I took a sick day on Monday, partly because I just couldn't bear the thought of being there, not to mention I had several dizzy spells and cold sweats. I really just want to crawl in a hole.

i've been craving nothing but sugar... I've gone through nearly 3 litres of ginger ale in the last 3 days :O And if I'm walking around, I'm thinking of the next place I can sit down and put my feet up...
I had an uncharacteristic burst of energy yesterday morning, and did a brisk walk from my car to my daughter's preschool. (Takes like 2 minutes LOL and normally I slow-walk.) I got back to my car and felt proud for my speed walk energy, but then felt like I was going to pass out and laid down as soon as I got home. AHAHA pathetic

I haven't been feeling great for the last week. I sure hope it doesn't continue as I have 2 months left! I get down thinking that I could be feeling this bad for another couple of months. My DH asked what he could do and I said don't be a smart *** and just be sympathetic...

You're just pregnant girl! It happens to all of us, and I think it just comes and goes. Mine hit about a month ago, but I feel better now. I'm still sleepy as hell, but everyting else seems to have calmed down a bit. Try going for a walk or taking a hot bath to try and calm the nerves... of course, you could always have some hot steamy sex... you know that's my remedy for everything LMAO!

Bet you couldn't get worse than me!

I've just been moody the whole pregnancy but last night I was really emotional and crying. And I just ate like 6 dove mini peanut butter candies. About to grab my 7th after I reply to this. Smile
