Hi everyone,

I posted this on another chat form and wanted to know your advice too.

Before getting pregnant I had mood swings but I could always control them, now they're that bad I'm lashing out at people and my OH wanted to leave me alone for the night and not see me cause I got that bad. On the other form someone mentioned that it could be PND but I don't feel down or anything thing like that it's just horrible mood swings.

I was hoping you ladies could shine some light on to it please.

I had awful pre mentrual tension. I felt like a coiled spring for a week. It sounds like you may be the same. If it occurs at a certain time of the month, then it might be worth keeping a log.
Then When my periods started I was back to sweetness and light.

I think you should go to your GP and ask for something that will give you some relief from the hormonal ping pong. F
Above ALL remember it is not your DHs fault that you feel like you do. Every time you snap at him, you are chipping Away at your relationship. It is very unfair.

That's exactly what he said. I feel really bad that he's having all this thrown at him. I have a gp and mw appointment next week so I'll talk to them then.

The past two days have been a lot better we've spent so much time together having fun.

Well to be fair to yourself, you are not exactly having a wonderful time either. I felt as miserable as sin before my periods.
I tried hard so hard to be nice, instead of being what seemed like an ugly snappy crocodile.
If he even tried to stroke my arm, I felt like stabbing him. A week later and he seemed like the gorgeous desirable bloke he is , and my children were the best ever.

Pre Mentrual tension is not much of a recognised problem.

I often wished that he could change places with me so that he could experience what it was like to feel as though your head was exploding and my Tummy was sore and appeared as though it had a 20 pound baby in it.
Mmmm the joys of being a Woman.

Best of luck and I hope you get some relief which will prevent you from feeling like a wicked witch.
