Can't buy a good mood!

So according to my DH I have been pretty mean for the last couple of months. He says he gets it. But now that I am having issues getting sleep, it is getting worse! I know it is bad when I'm grumpy to my DS! I feel so awful being grumpy to him, but I just can't seem to shake it. These hormones and the lack of sleep, not to mention the inability to move easily, is dragging me down. SIGH. How's everyone else feeling? I'm the total wicked witch of the west on steroids.

I know what you mean! I feel guilty bc I have NO patience with my DS, and I don't feel like playing with him, etc.. I have been sort of snappy with DH too, but he has been so good natured about it that it helps me not to take it too seriously. Lack of sleep is definitely no good for the mood.

I've gotten better lately - way better than the beginning of the pregnancy. However, I feel better too in some ways. I have been having the super nesting urge and that helps. However, I do have less tolerance for stuff so I tend to be more short tempered.

I feel evil! Unpredictable and I have been trying to stay away from most people.

I'm the same as you Jules. It's been bad all pregnancy. I try to catch myself & then apologize, but I feel like I'm continuously apologizing. Sad

Add me to the list. I hate hearing myself sometimes because as soon as I snap I feel awful about it. It tears me up knowing this is the last little bit I have with just Brynna and most of the time I don't feel like doing anything. Bless her little heart. DH can fend for himself.....lol

Me too. I also feel like I'm apologizing all the time...poor DH. I never even know when it's coming, one minute I'm fine, the next I'm snapping at him and crying and basically throwing a tantrum :confused: I am really hoping that now that I'm off work, things get better as I am able to sleep and eat better. Those are the only things that help keep me feeling somewhat normal...if I'm exhausted and my blood sugar is low, watch out!!! :o

I totally could have written your post. I am getting so miserable from the lack of sleep and aches and pains that I can barely see straight. I feel like all I do is complain lately. I know it will all be worth it, but it's still hard.

my biggest issue is being less tolerable with DS Sad

DH hasn't mentioned me being moody, but I can tell I am less patient with the normal antics of a 5-year-old.

Don't take it to heart Jules! My DH says the same thing... not that I've been mean but that I've been super moody these past few months! I'm like, my back is killing me, I can't see to shave ANYWHERE anymore, it hurts to roll over in bed, my house is a disaster, and I'm not getting laid nearly as much as I need... gee... I wonder why I'm MOODY???!!!!!

After tonight I need to retract this statement, I'm a jerk and I don't care.

Yep. Normally retail therapy cures anything Brittany, but that's my gripe! Can't even buy a good mood these days. I have to pretend and put a face on while I'm totally and completely annoyed and man underneath it all.

Thanks for all the responses. It makes me feel a lot better to know I'm not the only one with these feelings/issues. Sometimes you feel like you are all alone in this crazy roller coaster ride.... Glad to have you ladies. :bighug:
