Pregnancy Grumpiness

I am suffering with pissed off at the world syndrome at the moment.
I can cope and be polite with sensible normal people, but anyone getting in my way or being a fool needs to watch out.

Any tips on how to cope?

MissCalamity Wed 08-Jan-14 13:40:13

No tips I'm afraid but I am joining this thread because I am such a miserable grumpy arse at the moment.

Just feel like I'm snapping at everyone, and have no good reason. I'm 24 weeks, so not huge.

I just want to hibernate until March please....

I am fed up of people asking me how I am! They don't want the unpleasant details, so why expect me to say fine thanks?
Also fed up of needing to wee all the time, people asking questions and then giving unwanted opinions (my sister telling me the name we like for a DS is hers! Other people pulling faces at our choices)
Just angry

I have had the same problem my oh says i am really moody i just blame it on tiredness :-) i am 31 + 2 and it seems to be getting worse. There is one person at my work in my team who i cant even bring myself to talk too since being back from x mas break lol - altho she is unhappy about my pregnancy but thats another thing lol....i wonder whether anyone notices how grumpy i am lol.
Glad to hear its not just me though

I fucking hate everyone (28 weeks).

I want to kill dh, I detest him.

Someone at the school gate asked me how I was yesterday, well, O'd just sneezed and pissed my knickers, but I couldn't say that, could I? So I went with 'fine thanks' through gritted teeth.

The only person I like at the moment is my ds, but one more battle over homework and even he will be on shaky ground.

Loopylouu Wed 08-Jan-14 14:10:11

And I am not sleeping and dh knows this, so why the fuck does he want me to get up and go to the kitchen with him in the mornings? So I can stand there and watch him open the fridge?

I don't want breakfast until later, ds is 11 and can get his own......but he yes stroppy if I don't get out of bed when he does, because poor diddums has to go to work 9 to 5 in a cushy council office where he sits o his arse eating cakes getting doted on and spoilt by the 50 year old women he works with

Newmumtobe2014 Wed 08-Jan-14 14:27:26

HaHa - i had a tena moment myself this morning (embarrassed) - I am sure that i have always been a moody mare though but its just getting worse. My DP said to me this morn "i cant even talk to you anymore" and thought well dont then lol :-) although this was at 6.30 this morn so i wasnt at my best!

Loopylouu Wed 08-Jan-14 15:05:21

Dh has said similar, as in "you are impossible to be around at the moment". Well, piss off and leave me alone then.

Newmumtobe2014 Wed 08-Jan-14 15:13:07

Hear Hear!!!!

Newmumtobe2014 Wed 08-Jan-14 15:13:48

Or Here Here even...lol You know what i mean :-)

Littlebean13 Wed 08-Jan-14 15:31:58

I've been the same for the past couple of days. I just can't tolerate anybody at the minute. It pisses me off even more that all people talk to me about are baby things. It's like everyone has forgotten how to have a conversation with me that doesn't revolve around my pregnancy! I don't want to talk about it 24 fucking 7! Argggggh!

Newmumtobe2014 Wed 08-Jan-14 15:33:29

Yep know what you mean and all i say when asked how i am is "im tired" - then the same response to me is "well not long now" its funny how you hear the same comments over and over and over

Loopylouu Wed 08-Jan-14 15:38:11

Oh god "it's not long now" really gets to me. I had a positive test at 3w 4days.....it's been a bloody long time already and it still seems like forever to the end when I'm up all night with heartburn.

I'm 7weeks 1 day!! So grumpy and tired! Can't be bothered to do the house work! Called in sick today as I work with food and the sight of it makes me heave! Don't have as much patience with my 3 year old dd!! Never seem to get enough sleep and I've got a constant headache! DP has been so helpful and understanding so quite lucky there!
Hope this nausea will end soon!!confused

Yeh know what you mean, first night monday of heartburn - never had it before and suddenly cant sleep because of it! Oh the joys lol
i think people say it because they have nothing better/else to say!

BeccaBrkr7 Wed 08-Jan-14 15:58:45

Sorry about the same post over and over!! shock

stargirl1701 Wed 08-Jan-14 16:03:34

Aye. 8+4 and pretty pissed off. I just want to hide in my bed until the first trimester is done. I hate it.

tgamble13 Wed 08-Jan-14 16:03:37

am easily tipped over to the dark side i know i was hard work last week but fingers crosssed am grand this week. i think my grumpiness has rubbed off on my oh cause ud think he was feckin pregnant. he should try being 38weeks pregners sleep deprived, swollen nearly all over and having a baby thats breeched and constantly having her head up near my right breast!ouch!

Newmumtobe2014 Wed 08-Jan-14 16:10:47

Ah i am swollen too and struggling to even put socks on lol, i dont have any energy either - im sure dp doesnt understand pregnancy, if i moan about being tired he says "you should try working nights" or "i havent slept for 24 hours" Its nice to talk to people who actually get it!
I had headaches within the first trimester but they went at 3 month mark thankfully as i had loads of sick time off work, was lucky as didnt have morning sickness but felt sick if hungry - now im just tired all the time (sick of saying it to people when they ask how i am) and moody as hell. Oh and housework - pah that can wait!

CrispyFB Wed 08-Jan-14 16:51:17

Argh at the "not long now"!! I'm due mid March. Before Christmas everyone was 'helpfully' telling me "oh, that's ages away, poor you" (am using a crutch for SPD and have 3 young DC and no family support nearby hence the sympathy!)

Now we are in January. I'm, ooh, three weeks further along. Now I get "Oh not long now, it'll fly by in no time!"

No it bloody well won't! It's almost ten weeks, and approximately (I counted) 92 trips to school and back and never mind the rest of it. Ten weeks is eternity when you're in pain 24/7, can't walk more than a hundred yards, and getting no sleep and have a whole bunch of bickering children to look after and a permanently messy house as DH is too tired from work to do much!

I can never tell if my rage is down to running out of cope or hormones. Probably both! I do know that it tends to be cyclical though - I'll have a week or so of wanting to start a fight with everything from a dustbin to the pope (I should really stay off FB during that week!) and a week of feeling chilled and anyone could do anything and I wouldn't care. Then a few weeks in the middle either side of those extremes.

I could probably do the "cope" thing if I didn't get the pregnancy rage from time to time though. It's awful because most of the time I know I'm being unreasonable or, most likely, unusually confrontational, but despite that self-awareness I seem to be unable to stop myself at least half the time. Argh.

Newmumtobe2014 Wed 08-Jan-14 20:16:18

Im due early March and just feel lazy lol and heavy! it sounds like you have every reason to be grumpy! :-)
your right ten weeks is an age away I give up work in six weeks and its going very slowly now lol, typical!
I think we are entitled to pregnancy rage so just go for it :-)
