Anyone else feeling really irritable, argumentative and grumpy

I'm now about 10 and half weeks and feeling so irritable and argumentative and grumpy, it's not really like me at all. Especially at work at the moment I find everything is getting to me and although I am aware of it I can't seem to stop it. Things wind me up so much which wouldn't normally and I actually just felt so upset and irritated by something I felt I could cry, which isn't like me at all.
Anyone else like this? Please tell me it gets better or might pass soon. I think I've probably been like this for a week or so and its getting worse.

Had lots of that!! Am about 17 weeks now but the grumpiness and exhaustion seemed to wear off at about 15 weeks for me. Still a bit hormonal and randomly teary but much better than first trimester!

It's good to hear that, I feel so unlike myself and don't like that I can feel myself being irritable and argumentative and a bit snappy with people and can't seem to get out of that mood sad

Feel exactly the same, I'm 17 weeks and it's incredibly hard to not get annoyed at everything and everyone.
I'm hoping it will pass soon.

Hopefully it will pass soon for all of us. I never thought I'd feel some of the things I do, like these crazy moods I seem to be having, when pregnant. All the pictures you see of pregnant people smiling and glowing don't seem to be happening for me! I guess we still have time to get there!

I was like that at first! I hated nearly everyone I knew in turn for the first 3 months. It's passed now... Hopefully it stays gone.

SeashellHoarder Thu 09-Jun-16 23:22:45

Yes, fuck off. But seriously like bear above I've gone through hating every one in turn, for no reason. Today it's my lovely mum's turn. And dh this morning.

Yep. Have just had the worst day of this ever. I feel pretty embarrassed tbh...

I've had this big time the last few days. Nearly flipped this afternoon when a colleague shrieked "congratulations!" Followed but "you're pregnant aren't you?" In the hearing of about 10 people. I don't even look pregnant (I'm 18wks) - she said it was because I'm wearing a loose dress! So annoyed as I'd wanted to tell the people I work closely with for myself, rather than have it run though the rumour mill.

Yeah. DH got it both barrels for not vacuuming correctly today.

I'm fat and hot sad

After the awful day I had yesterday and like you LaPharisienne I ended up feeling pretty embarrasses about how I had reacted at work, I tried really hard to stay calm today and not let things get to me, didn't work completely but I'm hoping I can try and hold it back a bit because I think I'm making myself feel worse. Although I keep snapping at DP and finding it hard to stop that, although luckily he is pretty understanding!

I got this both times in the first trimester. The smallest things would wind me up or make me cry. It eased once my hormones settled down a bit, although I'm now 37wks and it's back with a vengeance because I'm so bloody uncomfortable. Like November, the heat really hasn't helped in the last week. Neither has finally being able to say I now have first hand experience of how awful piles are DH is being thankfully very kind and understanding about it all!

DoubleCarrick Sat 11-Jun-16 11:34:03

Dh was told off a couple of days ago for not leaving me any crisps... I'm off crisps this pregnancy so cant even eat them!!

I'm 10 weeks and so bloody grumpy!!

NovemberInDailyFailLand Sat 11-Jun-16 22:56:23

Piglet, I know exactly how horrible piles are, too. I've moaned so much I feel sure DH will never see me in a romantic light again. Pregnancy has not made me feel attractive at all...

He painted the kitchen today and missed a bit, too! I totally considered divorce...

Yes! I'm near the end though (due next week). Really trivial things have irritated me the last few weeks.

FurryDogMother Sun 12-Jun-16 00:08:15

Yes, but I'm not pregnant smile
