I'm just a big hormonal mess!

Funny a few month ago when I told my hubby I was pregnant both over the moon we joked about my moods over the next 9 month.

I'm now nearly 12 weeks pregnant and I'm just a walking hormone. I feel so emotional today sickness and nausea for 7 weeks and its nots calming down yet.

All I have done is snap and shout at my poor hubby I could cry thinking about it. He does every thing for me I'm so lucky.

Work I'm finding hard as the other women I work with is being really lazy she knew I was ill on Friday and instead of making my life easier she made me do all the work while she found excuses to skive. I got so angry at work not directing at her. Towards the end of shift I think she knew she was taking the mick and started to work. It's all this that's making me so down.

The sickness I feel I'm handling and I know will pass eventually. but now struggling with mood swings.

Literally 30 mins after a mad rage or cry I'm laughing at how silly I was but at that moment I'm like a crazy women

Is the hormonal thing pretty much the whole 9 months

I feel exactly the same at 12 weeks I'm now 28 it does get a little better.. Although anything can make me cry at the moment.

Just think it'll all be worth it in the end....
Its really hard but you'll get there...
My work was pants too... They wouldn't let me reduce anything so I ended up having to go off sick xx

I usually have much better control of my emotions, but hormones have certainly reduced my tolerance levels. I don't mess around with travelling to emotional, I just get there without trying.

My step son made a joke about me being a moody cow over the next couple of months, and I don't think he realises how lucky he is to have kept his teeth ( lol). Ten minutes later I am welling up over an advert. I think it was for B&Q!

Reading some of the stuff on MN gets me goong too. I suppose it is just part of the process and does make me chuckle! It is a pain if it happens at the wrong tine, in the wrong place, but hey ho. Such is life.

I was the same up until about 16 weeks and now at 29 weeks (tomorrow) I feel like it has all come rushing back. No advice other than eating properly makes me feel better and getting outside for fresh air also helps me to get some perspective.

I hate the tiredness, indigestion and other less glam bits of pregnancy but the bit I hate most is the hormonal fluctuations.

If it makes you feel any better, I just burst into tears because I couldn't do the exercises on my new pregnancy yoga DVD! There are days when I'm not safe to be let loose on the public.

Feel your pain Sarah, but you're amongst friends here.....

Forget period hormones I have really got to know mine over the last 8 months but my conclusion is they are ok. They are not me when I'm great and they are temporary. Just be easy on yourself if your having one of those days. When you can blame your hormones it feels ok, it means you are not going mad and everyone understands, maybe not your hubby yet if it's first baby but maybe get him a book or another man who can tell him that it's normal and how he can help you. 2nd trimester I did feel much better with odd days but generally more energetic, and I did feel more rosy faced. Third trimester and I feel ok and ready for what is to come and I am ready for the hormone changes to come post birth even if I am a balling wreck for a few days! it happens to every woman. Many congratulations and I do hope you feel better xx
