Is this NORMAL or am i going CRAZY?!

im just about 17 weeks pregnant and im super moody and irritable about everything. i feel possesed. even when im trying to be nice im rude lol. lately i feel like i can be around no one without having a poor attitude and not saying or doing something mean. I completely dont even feel like me. my niece who is 1 screams and is mean to my daughter and i just yell at her and get angry over something dumb. Just leaving my house or looking at some people makes me cringe because im SOOO irritated! Is it just me?? Have i lost my mind??

  • It's probably just your hormones!! It may or may not get better some time in your pregnancy. If not, hopefully after you deliver you'll feel back to normal!

  • yep, youve lost your mind... I was told not to even look for mine for the next 18+ years...

    In all seriousness though, I felt the same way, towards the end you should level back out, for now just practice as much patience as you can and get used to saying sorry.

  • Don't worry, I'm 20 weeks and I'm the exact same way, and when I'm not yelling at someone I'm crying over EVERYTHING.

  • Same here LadyJayne27, I cried just yesterday because there are to many girl names to pick from! lol And I tend to roll my eyes at everything and got mad at the cat because he wouldn't eat (poor Friend, he's mad at me now) Gotta love the hormones!

  • Its okay---its because you are pregnant. I was a little wierd too---especially with the first one. It will get better,trust me. Pretty soon you will be mellow and happy . ;-)

  • I was that way too. I think its funny because your supposed to be all serene and matronly (at least thats what society tells us) but its more like WWF LOL somedays I would wake up and pick a fight with my hsuband just because I wanted to fight. I got mad once because I got bad produce from teh grocery store and vaguely recall telling my husband "Zip it or I'll break your hip!" My husband was very sweet about it and now we laugh hysterically about it all
