Pregnancy Grumpiness

talulahbelle Wed 08-Jan-14 13:33:51

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....

talulahbelle Wed 08-Jan-14 13:47:56

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

Newmumtobe2014 Wed 08-Jan-14 13:55:27

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

Loopylouu Wed 08-Jan-14 14:06:42

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.

BeccaBrkr7 Wed 08-Jan-14 15:52:07

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

Newmumtobe2014 Wed 08-Jan-14 15:55:20

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 :-)

Legalbaby79 Wed 08-Jan-14 20:18:13

If someone says to me "how far are you"..... "Really, your big" you will all see me on Crimewatch !!!!!

Legalbaby79 Wed 08-Jan-14 20:21:02

Oh and those poxy emails that say " track your weight during pregnancy" oh bugger off ....

weeza13 Wed 08-Jan-14 20:27:49

sorry to say but its a relief to hear that others in their first tri are grumpy and tired too and its not just me being unreasonable. Have not slept properly in weeks as DP is prolific snorer, as soon as I am awake the noise annoys me to crazy levels and I end up downstairs or awake in bed crying with frustration that he is asleep and I'm not, and I still have to go to work each day to deal with 30 young children. Any tips on how to sleep?

SugarMiceInTheRain Wed 08-Jan-14 20:38:20

Oooh me too. Really fed up. I know people are trying to be nice when they ask how I am, but 95% of them just want to make small talk and don't want to hear that my pelvis feels like it's going to split in two from the SPD, I haven't slept well in weeks, and that actually I'm not that excited about it at all (flipping AND) sad It's not really that long to go now (6 weeks left) but I know from previous pregnancies, and the fact that this pregnancy is taking its toll on me more than previous ones, that those last 6 weeks will feel like an eternity. I'm getting good at acting like everything is fine, and just privately gritting my teeth and silently seething!

Newmumtobe2014 Thu 09-Jan-14 08:29:59

LOL, i feel huge compared to some girls at my work who are further ahead than me! I look like i am carrying two lol

J3llyB3lly Thu 09-Jan-14 19:21:32

So relieved that it's NOT just me who has PMT on steroids.

I'm 37+5 with an increasingly stroppy 5 yr old dd and a dh who doesnt understand that poor sleep, extreme cankles, stuffy nose, all-night baby gymnastics and his snoring are why I melt down most evenings Im not sure he has cottoned on that we are having a baby very soon! No help + denial = v disgruntled bump minder angry

And relax...

SugarMiceInTheRain Thu 09-Jan-14 19:29:57

I feel guilty for being so snappy, especially when DH and the boys are making a real effort to look after me. I can recognise that when I am feeling rational, however my lucid, rational moments are few and far between right now!! grin

PervyMuskrat Thu 09-Jan-14 20:10:28

First trimester here and ready to punch DH (who is normally the nicest man in the world) for eating stinky crisps when I feel really nauseous angry

Wuxiapian Thu 09-Jan-14 20:13:53

32+1 here and mega grumpy and hormonal and achey and tired and worried since I lost mucus plug 5 days ago.

TeaAndANatter Thu 09-Jan-14 21:07:34

One more person asks if I'm excited, whether it was planned, or how I'm feeling (with their head tipped to one side) is going to get a fat lip.

Six days overdue and 'grumpy' doesn't quite cut it. Filled with murderous rage, hysteria and daydreams of throttling anyone who mentions fucking inductions.

Have been hormonal, rageous and snappy since about week 6. Had a stretch in second tri where I was less of an horrific bitch, but it soon subsided. In fact, massively elevated hormones have been my main symptom.

DH has learned to make me brew and provide hugs on demand and NEVER to question my sanity/reasonableness. grin

RaRa1988 Fri 10-Jan-14 11:19:11

I'm just sick of being ill! I don't seem to be very good at being pg. Normally really healthy, and instead I spent the first trimester being/feeling sick, then a couple of weeks of respite, and now I'm allergic to everything airborne under the sun, get restless legs, am STILL really tired, and have headaches and constipation. And DP wonders why I get moody!

Wuxiapian Fri 10-Jan-14 11:47:50

And, extra grumpy as I've had a bad cold for the past 2 months (since I had flu jab, coincidentally) and have an 11 month old DS who I'm really struggling to entertain!

Just want to sleep, but can't. Have visitors later and need to clean and tidy sad

enormouse Fri 10-Jan-14 12:15:45

I'll join the grumpy brigade too. 38+2 here.

I've finally got the physio referral for sciatica I wanted for the past 6 weeks though it's going to be too little too late.
My house is a mess as I can't do it and dp is spending all his time after work fielding ds, taking him out and generally stopping him jumping all over me.

I feel fat, fugly and sore all the time. Don't feel like I'm being a great mum to ds as I can't pick him up, take him out or do anything fun. I pulled my leg muscles carrying him downstairs and had to get DP to come home and look after him as I can't move now.
My lecturer won't offer me an extension on the essay I'm writing (but I've almost got it done - thank God).

Dp and I were supposed to be having a day out tomorrow but I don't think I'll be able to manage it.

DownstairsMixUp Fri 10-Jan-14 12:21:50

I'm early, not due till September, but I'm moody, paranoid and snappy. Also incredibly anxious. Really hope I feel better after a scan.

Wuxiapian Fri 10-Jan-14 12:26:58

Sounds really hard going, enormouse.

I've just dosed myself up on paracetamol - got a bad headache - have done since sleepless night in hospital with DS with bronchiolitis on Monday.

How old is your DS?

enormouse Fri 10-Jan-14 13:53:42

He's 2 and a bit wuxi. A very bouncy, demanding sort of 2. Climbs onto things but can't manage getting down by himself again.

How old's yours wuxi?

I got a call back from the physio and they can't fit me in. The therapist was lovely and gave me a lot of advice over the phone and is sending me stuff in the post but I'm still gutted. Not surprised though. They will keep me on their list in case the pain doesn't resolve itself post birth.

enormouse Fri 10-Jan-14 13:54:41

Oh sorry just seen - 11 months. Cbeebies is your friend.

Wuxiapian Fri 10-Jan-14 14:08:58

Sorry to hear about the physio, enormouse. I was recently discharged from my physio (only for back/pelvic pain to return with a vengeance) a couple months ago until April - 2 months post partum.

You're so close to the end now - hopefully it will resolve itself.

I feel hopeless and helpless at the moment. DS and I haven't been to any playgroups since November as I've been constantly unwell. Feeling extra lardy, too, as I'm hardly moving as everything hurts.

I discovered the cbeebies a little while ago. And feel guilty that he is, perhaps, in front of the screen too much.


enormouse they can't fit you in? FFS. Lame. angry On your behalf. I hope the physio's tips help a little.

Seff Fri 10-Jan-14 14:27:35

Hello to all the other grumpy pregnant ladies!

Sitting down makes me ache. Being on my feet makes me ache. Walking makes me ache. I'd spend more time in the bath but it's just not that comfortable with a 3.5 year old that just has to sit on me.

I'm 31 weeks (I'm sensing a theme here btw!) and any hint of second trimester glow/energy/other bullshit has gone and I am permanently exhausted and achy. And I know that the only option is to push this baby out of me.

Baby keeps flipping from sideways to head down, so I either get kicks at the very edge of my belly or I have the pressure on my bladder. Not his fault, but it does sometimes feel like all 3 of my family are conspiring against me.

YY to people not wanting to know the details. "How am I? Well, as I was throwing up this morning I kept pissing myself, I think I need two toilets that face each other." No, nobody wants to hear that (apart from all you lovely ladies of course!)

It's all those little things that DH does/doesn't do that are pissing me off at the moment. Toothbrush left on the sink every.fucking.day instead of being put away. The inability to hang a coat up. Then asking me why it can be difficult to get DD to put her things away.

Oh yeah, the OP. Tips on how to cope? Other than childbirth, fucked if I know!

(feel a teeeeeeeny bit better now, thanks!)

Mummytobe2014 Fri 10-Jan-14 14:31:22

I think this is my favourite post currently! grin

Loopylouu Fri 10-Jan-14 14:47:08

seff two toilets that face each other grin

I have fantised over having a bathroom like that during morning sickness. Puking and pissing simultanoiusly is no fun.

PixieBumbles Fri 10-Jan-14 14:52:47

23+6 and still waiting for the second trimester energy boost. Getting really fed up with people asking how the pregnancy is going, because nobody wants to hear "well I can barely walk, the baby is playing football with my bladder, my skin is red, itchy and covered in painful spots, I'm still being sick everyday and pissing myself at the same time and I can't get through a day without a huge nap, but otherwise great!" so I just grit my teeth and say "really well thank you".

Somebody commented the other day that I'm waddling when I walk, even though I'm "not pregnant enough" to need to waddle. Well actually my pelvis feels like it's disintegrating and an ungainly waddle is the only way I can walk that feels even slightly comfortable.

What is it about pregnancy anyway that immediately makes your body and actions public property to be commented on at will?!

You can't talk to anybody about how you really feel because you're supposed to be happy and grateful when all you really want is for the next few months to disappear and for it to all be over, so you just end up feeling hopelessly inadequate. When you do break down with pain, frustration and sheer exhaustion it's just put down to hormones, because what you really need is for your feelings to be invalidated even further.

This is my first pregnancy. When I told my mum she went on and on about how easy her pregnancies were, how she loved being pregnant and she was sure I'd take after her and breeze through it. Bullshit.

And now I feel bad because it could be a whole lot worse.

Sorry for the rant, I think I needed it. I am very fed up today!

Loopylouu Fri 10-Jan-14 15:00:03

I am sure the second trimester energy boost is a lie.

I am 28 weeks now and have felt drained and shit all the way along. I did in my first pregnancy too, and I was 11 years you get then and a hell of a lot thinner and fitter!

Loopylouu Fri 10-Jan-14 15:03:03

and yy to becoming public property.

We had lunch at the pub the other day. I ordered at the bar - pint for dh and a coke for me. I was informed by the batman that norther were suitable for me and would I like a glass of water.

Then, as I was shaking salt onto my food he commented that I shouldn't be having that either.

I wanted to shove the salt sellor up his arse.

Loopylouu Fri 10-Jan-14 15:04:01

By the barman. I wish Batman did work at my local.

Seff Fri 10-Jan-14 15:15:17

Cheeky fucking barman! I would have asked why a fully qualified doctor was working behind a bar.

BEEwitched Fri 10-Jan-14 16:09:12

He'd be wearing his glass of water, the way I'm going at the moment.

I'm either grumpy or teary, I don't seem to have sane middle position - I've been off sick for 12 weeks now and still feel shit but I'm talking to my doctor about returning to work part-time. I'm worried about the customer facing bits about my job because my fuse, let me tell you, is very short!

Sophieandboys Sat 11-Jan-14 10:39:13

22 wks and grumpy. Think its a combination of having baby no 5 and so have been massive from about 12 weeks and the fact it's January which I hate anyway. I was feeling pretty buoyant as found out on Xmas day (the sonographer write the sex in an envelope for us that we kept til then) that we were having a girl - finally after 4 boys (love them dearly but boys still slightly alien to me!) But now has kicked in the stories of "oh my friend was told she was having a girl bought everything pink and it was a boy". Thought we were pretty safe cos two sonographers checked it (apparently because they don't usually were it down so he wanted to be sure) but then I had yesterday - "I had 4 scans and was told every time it was a girl and then it turned out to be a boy". So on top of the constant headaches, the incredible tiredness (which is getting better now they've discovered it was iron defficiency) the getting up to pee all the time and the living in constant fear of doing anything that might trigger the horrific SPD I had last time. I spent all of last night in between peeing having bizarre dreams about scans and sonographers (whilst I might add DH was out on the piss with his mates! - something that it so far into distant memory I'm not sure I was ever exposed to such fun!) and I've woken up with another headache!! rah rah rah! Rant over. Thanks!

Loopylouu Sat 11-Jan-14 12:19:13

sophie I've had two scans telling my my baby is a girl.

But still at the back of my mind I am thinking "what if they are wrong".

Doesn't hp that all the old wives tales about bump size, heart rate, sound of the heartbeat, symptoms fit with her being male.....still, I'm not a fan of pink girly things, so it wouldn't be the end of the world!

AngP2585 Sat 11-Jan-14 21:51:33

I am 14 weeks and very grumpy especially with my husband the stupid immature things he says are really tipping me over the edge all he cares about is getting his wicked way. Totally not in the mood for it at all he is behaving like a school boy.

gemmal88 Sat 11-Jan-14 21:59:58

I'm grumpy. REALLY grumpy at the moment! Mainly because people say stupid things.

OH got me an amazing T-shirt for Christmas, it says:

I don't care about your labour stories or what you think I should call my baby. Don't touch my belly and yes I'm going to eat that. NOW GO AWAY.

I showed it to my bump-touchingly happy friend (whilst I had it on) and instead of reading it she grabbed my belly and started rubbing it.

I'm 24 weeks on Wednesday and people say 'Oh, not long now!' Well, yes actually, it is long. 16 weeks is a long fucking time to still be pregnant.

Not being able to drink is a blessing in disguise for me at the moment. What I would end up saying to some people after a few wines....

SomethingOnce Sun 12-Jan-14 01:32:04

people asking questions and then giving unwanted opinions

Ah, I see you had an interrogation from enforced conference call with my SIL too grin

Gobbolinothewitchscat Sun 12-Jan-14 02:51:06

I'm 40+1, practically incontinent and with a cough, great combo currently in the bath as I average 3 hours of sleep a night and googling hotels to go and stay in as DH is driving me mental

I may smother him to death with the birthing ball if he suggests getting on it again.

He told me today that nothing he ever does makes me happy. So why doesn't he buck up then?!

He's a dentist and smugly told me today that lots of patients say that toothache is far worse than labour. They must be the patients who had an epidural at 1cm then. FUCK'S SAKE

I'm lying awake after a stress dream about maxi cosi car seats.

If I lie on either side the child has a tantrum and judo chops me on the hip bone. Hard.
If I lie on my back I'm cutting off the blood supply.
Front is not an option.

So I come in MN for comfort and there is yet another 'I'm 37 weeks and have put in 9lb - eek, help!' thread hmm I managed that in the first month.

And I'm hungry.

schokolade Sun 12-Jan-14 08:09:40

I'm 38 weeks and generally not too grumpy. Was in a right grump yesterday though, and had a go at DH for his birth country having really stupid right of way rules that no one with any sensible driving training could ever make sense of. He just sat there and took it too, which annoyed me even more grin

Misty9 Sun 12-Jan-14 08:56:10

I'm 27wks and really grumpy. Started yesterday when it was my birthday and a complete disappointment. Still grumpy today and can't seem to snap out of it. 2yo is avoiding me, probably best after he spent half the night kicking me in the bloody back
Only 13 fucking long weeks to go

gemmal88 Sun 12-Jan-14 10:26:54

He's a dentist and smugly told me today that lots of patients say that toothache is far worse than labour. They must be the patients who had an epidural at 1cm then. FUCK'S SAKE

He obviously wants a smack in the face Gobbolino he's just too afraid to ask outright wink

It's my lie in this morning, I've been awake since half nine but can hear 3 year old whinging and OH whinging back at her so I'm staying put! For as long as my bladder will allow...

Sophieandboys Sun 12-Jan-14 12:37:16

Loopylou I've thought about all the old wives tales too and most do seem to fit with a girl for me. I'm planning to book a 3D scan as that seems to be the most foolproof way of determining sex as I don't think u could bear the trauma of funding out when I deliver that its a boy after the family hysteria that's ensued amongst grand parents etc in finding out that it's a girl. Hopefully that will put and end to the dreams if scans and sonographers and focus on just being bloody uncomfortable instead!

weeza13 Sat 01-Feb-14 16:58:52

am getting bit fed up of DH telling me I have got baby brain when he is the one who borrowed my car without me knowing then seemed surprised that I couldn't find the keys in my bag as they were in his coat pocket! Its as annoying as being told that you have pmt and it couldn't possibly be the fact that that person has just pissed you off. Nothing to do with hormones! when I'm being ditsy I am the first to admit it.

Tiptop32 Sat 01-Feb-14 17:21:18

Lastonedancing - snap!!! Fed up of weight gain threads to be constant.... Has no one heard of the search function???? I got no idea how much I put on as I have refused to be weighed since my booking in appt and I won't weigh myself until I go into labour!!! Whoops I am rather grumpy today. There used to be a thread called preggo rage which was very good

Shellywelly1973 Sat 01-Feb-14 17:38:15

I'm 40+4 today. OMG I feel so grumpy!

Dc are really annoying me...

I've got a repair man in my kitchen fixing my washing machine. I've had no washing machine for 2 weeks. 4 visits later... I'm not letting him out of my house if he doesn't fix that bloody washing machine!!!

iv just seen this thread and im fucking livid. at 6pm myhusband asked if i would mind if he laid down for an hour. of course not you fucktard, i would fucking love to put the shopping away, cook our dinner, put our son to bed and clean up your piss from all over the toilet seat yet a-fucking-gain'. um shall i wake you from yourbeauty sleep if i go into labour or should i get a taxi you lazy fucking arse.

hows that for a rant?

hackneybird Sat 01-Feb-14 21:44:00

21+5 here.

I have a confession to make - last night In the early hours I KICKED my husband in bed. He was keeping me awake snoring. I have a nasty cold which is not helping at all and I just totally lost it and kicked him.

He's barely spoken to me today and I don't blame him.

weeza13 Sun 02-Feb-14 08:51:46

Hackneybird. I get you with the snoring, I can work in a stressful enviroment all day and be fine but the second DH starts snoring my blood boils and I start imagining rather creative ways of killing him, he just says he can't help it and I should just go to sleep. Well I was bloody sleeping until you started doing your impressions of an asthmatic walrus at 100 frickin decibels in my ear! I did literally kick him out of bed on to the floor when he came in after several pints and snored, beer snoring was just one step too far

I am 18 weeks and I have been angry at the world since 6weeks! I thought the further you got the less pissed off you became... Evidently not. I'll be happy as Larry one minute, the next I'm after ripping someones head off. Also, I'm struggling to keep my rather blunt opinions to myself, which isn't going down too well with colleagues.

34 weeks and totally fed up with unsolicited advice from parents on everything from "have you considered a water birth" (oh wow, no never thought of that, thanks for giving me the idea) to the constant harping on about how hard and life changing and awful sleepless nights we're going to have. WE KNOW.

Oh and telling us to make the most of the last few weeks together as a couple - again...hadn't thought of the for our bloody selves! hmm
