Is it normal to have such a short fuse??

I am currently 8+6 and wondering whether it's normal to feel like I'm constantly on the edge of losing my shit over everything?!

I'm finding myself losing my temper very quickly with 2-year-old DS and feeling very bad about it sad

I'm 15+5 and I'm exactly the same. I'm a teacher and find my patience non-existent! I've snapped at My poor 3 1/2 year old a few times and felt awful. I think it's mainly down to how tired I feel all the time. I've found this pregnancy so much more tiring!

I was exactly the same quite early on (and posted on here about it too!). I felt angry all the time and would snap at the slightest thing, and felt so terrible for my not-quite-2-yr old.
It definitely has eased off lots though so I assume it was a hormonal thing.

Yes! I'm now nearly 20 weeks but for the first 12 I was a monster. I think I came very close to losing my DP because of it!

im 27 week and can only say it gets worse......ive lost my shit many many times.... My Husband said " I'm one big hormone"

I have no tolerance what so ever.

I hope it gets better because i find I'm avoiding people because they have irritated me in some way, which in a rational situation they probably haven't.... role on this baby so can just crack on with my PMT hahaha

I agree with sweet, i am 19+3 and positively evil at times! Lol. My temper flares very easily! 🙈

I'm 29 + 1, it doesn't go!

I'm still as snappy as I was after I fell pregnant!

I started another post about this topic .... I'm 6 weeks and flying into rages... and I mean rages. At my worst (so far) I've smashed a cup off the wall and been kicking my car door after demanding my husband pull over. Please tell me it at least settles a bit!?

I think anything goes when it comes to hormones in pregnancy... I haven't been angry especially, but had a horrible low time from weeks 6 to 13ish. I was depressed and wondered why I was having a (much wanted) second child. After that time I have mainly been relaxed and cheerful. Things can turn around!
