  • hahaha.. you remind me of me.. god when i was pregnant i was a dragon. ! it is hormones. but then again before i had DD i wasnt a fan of kids. and even now i find i can't tolerate uncontrolable kids.. I know kids will be kids, but i get annoyed when parents dont show any discipline (not physical of course) but respect etc, and the kids play up and it does my head in.

    maybe have a break or try not to baby sit that kid?? remember when your preggos hormones go mental and it can be hard to stay patient. like i said i couldnt stand kids when i was pregnant, now i am a mother i am way more tolerable of others children. lol.

  • We all at some point feel that way.

    If you can get a 5 minute time out you will be alright.

    Don't feel horrible, whether we admit or not we all get fustrated, and being pregnant it was more fustrating at times for me too.

  • I totally hear ya, I'm 13 weeks and have a 2 year old. He is really well behaved, I am so lucky, but now, the smallest thing just sets me off. I have been taking a lot of deep breaths and just talking myself into being more patient, it's tough :)

  • Just put the kids in a safe place and give yourself a few min to relax. Take some deep breaths and just tell your self their parent will he here in what ever time min or hrs it is what helped me out. GL

  • walk away, breath, and rethink your impatience at that time

  • It is hormonal, and you need to take a break, mommy. Try throwing some ice cubes at a fence if you are frustrated or get away from kids (assuming that they are all safe) and scream into the pillow. Good luck!

  • close your eyes and try to block out the chaos for a minute., then after that you may be able to deal with that chaos a little better. I call them my "mini vacations"
