to think being pregnant is not a valid excuse for being a bitch?

I hear this all the time... People being totally unreasonable then blaming hormones for their rages. I've been pregnant 3 times and never acted like a spolt brat over some petty crap.

no yanbu, i can understand at times it makes people more over sensative, over emotional or cry more easily that kind of thing? but to turn into a bitch.. no
im suprised people would accept that excuse if they are being totally unreasonable spoilt brat etc?

Well just because you haven't experienced the extreme tiredness and hormone fluctuations that others have doesn't mean it doesn't affect some
People.I have never known tiredness like it.

Depends I think. Generally, I don't think it's acceptable to use how you are feeling as an excuse for bad behaviour. I can't come into work after being up all night with DTs and behave badly to my colleagues. However, we are all human and every one of us - even the most reasonable - has days where it all gets too much and we explode. You have to set it in the context of that person's usual behaviour.

YANBU - for some people. My sister-in-laws sister practically got away with murder during her first pregnancy. It was all blamed on the hormones.

No. She was a bitch. She just had an excuse for 9 months. After the baby was born, she was still a bitch, but she couldn't get away with it so much.

Look, it wasn't being pregnant that made me a fucking bitch bit of a nightmare. It was the almost 8 months of hardly any sleep due to all day morning sickness, chronic, painful, heartburn then agonising SPD.

OK, bawbag? wink

Nae bother ya fud :D

Yes i guess if otherwise you're a normally sane person then fair enough. Throwing a salt shaker at your husband because he ate the last chocolate muffin is ripping it a bit.

YABU. Pregnancy sends me proper insane, and I am otherwise saintly.

(eg, telling DP he didn't love me AT ALL because he did a stinky poo in the bathroom before I brushed my teeth in there hmm)

YANBU I find it amazing the number of people who try to justify apalling behaviour by blaming pregnancy.

I'm 11 wks preg and dh will tell you I've had my "moments"!! My hormones are totally shot though as I've already had two mc's this year. Mostly though I'm just over-emotional. I sobbed at Waterloo Road last night blush.

So I can't decide if YABU or not, but I know I am sometimes at the moment......grin

onclefestere Thu 09-Jun-11 16:58:14

I'll have me one of them. I misspent my youth in Stourbridge - best friend from Redhill. Ah what a small world...

bupcakesandcunting Thu 09-Jun-11 17:01:11

Ah, that's over the other end of Wollaston from me (giving too much away here to my legion of stalkers wink)
