Extreme irritability and irrational anger!!

Hello everyone. I've just hit the 5 week mark and I keep having these overwhelming episodes of extreme irritability and it's horrible! It is all directed at myself as well. Tonight for instance I cooked a dinner that was absolutely vile, then realised it was ten to 9 and my entire evening had gone and I haven't done a thing!! No cleaning or exercise or anything remotely productive and I HATE myself for it! I had a ridiculous anger outburst that ended in me crying my eyes out to OH (who is so supportive) and now I am completely drained! Anyone else experience this? I hate the thought of feeling like this indefinitely! The rage that builds up sometimes awful and I just can't seem to stop it and I'm worried feeling like this every day will raise my stress levels and somehow affect the baby!!

Not the same thing, but a few weeks ago I was very prone to tears. At the slightest thing. I'm guessing everyone's hormones impacts them differently.

Hang in there. Hopefully it'll pass.

And congratulations.

I have occasional pregnancy rages. It's normal I think!

Thank you for your replies... it's horrible because I can't seem to control the rage sometimes and the smallest thing will set me off! Luckily today has been a good day...
