25 weeks pg and feel like I'm losing the plot - pregnancy hormones - fact or fiction?!

I hardly ever play the pregnancy card but am hoping on this occasion I can....

Have a DS age 3 and DD age 2 and a third on the way - in the last couple of weeks though everything seems too much - I have felt more teary and to put it politely the kids are doing my head in - I have no patience to deal with daily squabbles (or regular changes of clothes) and lose it a few times a day. There doesn't seem to be a reason I just seem to have the hump!

My son is going through a phase of wearing only 1 pair of jeans or boxer shorts or his sisters tights everyday which does me in then the constant domestic chores plus I work in the evenings...ahhhhh... am I just feeling sorry for myself, am I being reasonable to find pareting bloody hard work and can I blame it a little on pregnancy hormones?

I just feel I need a hug for no real reason. DH is working today so doesn't help.

Best get back to packing for a family few days away / cleaning / kids lunch / sorting paperwork / shopping etc etc etc - I know this is normal and I do like it all just feeling glum!

<hugs>, hope you don't mind it being a stranger. I think you've every right to feel out of sorts, I did and didn't have 2 toddlers to contend with so I think you're doing really well

thank you! I just feel llike I want to scream at everyone at the moment 'just GET LOSSSSSTTT and leave me alone'!

Can't handle comments about anything (i.e. from others about the kids or from DH about the house etc) and everything is doing my head in! hmmm.......

I'm 27 weeks pregnant, with a three year old and a five year old and I feel exactly the same: tired and humourless! Little things that wouldn't have bothered me a few months ago just make me irritated now, and I am seriously wondering if I will manage the next three months. Some days are better than others ... I just tell myself that this is normal and try not to let the grumpiness out too often. The thing that helps me most is visiting DS and DD's bedroom when they are asleep. Watching them as they sleep, looking angelic and peaceful, reminds me why I thought it was a good idea to try for number 3 grin.

Oh I hear you. I am 23wks with a 14mth old and a 7mth puppy and feel like I am on the constant merry go round of cook, clean, walk the dog, do the laundry, food shopping and then start all over again.

Are you able to get any time to yourself atall?

I was able to sneak away today to do do a trial yoga session and came home feeling completely refreshed obviously I am knackered again now though. wink

Good luck to you rant away if need be.

phew - is a relief to hear there are others out there going through the same. DH is great at helping but isn't so good when I'm not on top form!

Like this morning I have to do a few hours work before we go away and he has to pack his stuff and get a few things together but I want to be free to do it as I can see what needs doing (and would get it done quick) and it's driving me mad to sit and work and painful to watch him trying to think what's next! I am tring to resist mentioning to put out the clothes to dry first so they will ready....
