  • I cried over a Kleenex commercial one day! Hormones are very confusing at that time!

  • Yes it is very common. I have experienced both. With my first I was constantly happy (unless my head was in the toilet). With this baby (due Jan 2010) I have been SO moody, even horribly down some days! Take a deep breath rest when you can and you'll get past this stage! Keep in mind that for some women they don't get past this until after birth!
