I have pregnancy RAGE

I want to scream. Even the MN website is annoying me - so many adverts that it's taking forever to load.

DS has been tired all day because he slept badly (hence, so did I) and now just everything is infuriating me:
A client emailed me asking a question I'd already answered - if she'd bothered to read the original email I'd sent her.
Another client is demonstrating her regular levels of paranoia, but today it makes me want to rip her head off.
My next door neighbour appears to have been running an unofficial holiday club all holidays which hasn't bothered me until today when I want to scream out the window at the bloody kids.
The house is a mess and I just don't understand it as I spent HOURS tidying and cleaning yesterday.

I had forgotten about pregnancy rage. Thank god it doesn't last long. But I feel for anyone who gets in my way for the next few weeks.

Anyone else? Make me feel better please. This irrational fury is exhausting.

I hear you! everything is irritating me at the mo. My neighbour has been doing their bathroom up for two weeks, so thats two weeks of constant drilling into the night and early morning. so loud it feels like its drilling into our house! and just when i thought they had finished they ahve started another room! i wanted to go round and ask how much longer they think it will be, but DH said i shouldnt...

i have also come to realise that hearing someone eat and apple is the most irriating noise in the world! and now it seems everyone in my office eats apples all day long, driving me crazy!

i think i am just an hormonal mess as i am usually quite a chilled out person, but now i feel the red mist descend over the most trivial things?! i find taking a deep breath and counting to 10 stops me doing anything to irrational! grin

Ahhh I'm not alone! smile I have rage flare ups for sure. I'm generally a pretty calm and amiable kind of person, but not right now!

Some annoying person parked their car in front of our drive way, effectively blocking me in. I was only heading to the grocery store so really not a big deal, HOWEVER, yesterday it was a very big problem as I'd just gotten the energy up to get me and my toddler ready and out the door, to find this ugly car blocking me in. He didn't park for too long and when he came to his car he smiled and waved at me! It was all I could do to hold my tongue and not give him my mind ... What if I was going into labour!! Get out of my driveway!!

Lots of pregnancy rage here too. I'm already feeling sorry for the kids at school I teach; can't imagine I will take their nonsense with the sense of humour I usually deploy anymore.

I just posted about mine (previous, I'm not pregnant now) over on the Emotional/crying thread.
It involved beating my Henry Hoover sad

It's amazing how fast and strong the rage takes over - bloody hormones have a lot to answer for.
thanks for all you pregnant ladies.

Agree. I'm so ratty. I just can't be arsed with people. I just want to curl up in bed. Exhausted but can't sleep. Wail!

I've often wondered is it to do with what sex you are carrying.
Is it worse when carrying boys because of the amount of foreign hormones in our bodies?
I've only had sons so have nothing to compare to.
I can remember my mum having some rage when pregnant too but she only had girls.

When does it go away? I'm 7 days post birth and still have it.

I hate it when my mom says "grand" or DH eats near me as he chews so loudly. There are about 1,000 other things that piss me off daily but those are my top 2.

Ugh. I'm so pissed off with DH right now. He's being a total dick today. He drinks too much, and has done since I found out I'm pg. I've left him washing up badly and two days late because he's just said I was being stupid. Lucky I didn't batter him with a greasy pan.

And I swear, if he doesn't stop leaving dirty beer glasses all over the house I will smother him. Rant over.
