Did your hormoes change a lot after your pregnancy?

I cry ALLL THE FRICKEN TIME now. I feel like my hormones changed after my pregnancy. Before, I got choked up a bit watching the news and shows like extreme home makeover but when I was pregnant I bawled all the time about everything lol
and now, espessially right before my period, i'm a huge baby! lol i hate it :P

my mom thinks its just because I'm a mom now so I "have more life experience" so i react to things different. which i totally understand and I bet thats some of it. but my PMS is different since pregnancy too so I think its part homones also

did yours change??

  • Yes mine changed allot and I swung back and forth for a few months with super happy and crying all the time. Let your Dr know if it's to much for you. Some mommy's get baby blues really bad, and medications can help

  • Yes, your hormones can/will change after pregnancy, sometimes its normal, sometimes its not...if it gets any worse, might want to tell your doctor about it.

  • its been 18 months, they were crazy the first few months. pretty intense. I think the worst part is my irritibilty. which is just that much harder since I have two very strong willed 18 month old boys lol

  • Yes, they changed, some people change less than others, and you can't really predict how long it will last. My dh says mine lasted through menopause.
