  • Because we feel sick, miserable and our hormones are bouncing off the wall, while they're fine, feeling good and can't understand what we're remotely going through.

  • Realize that it is temporary and your hormones are raging during this time. You will feel extremely emotional until a few months after the baby comes. This is normal. Hang in there. Take some "me" time every now and then when things get hairy. It's best to stay away from stressful situations as much as possible too.

  • i totally agree with the pp, hormones can make your body do really funny things, and we have no control over what they are doing. for some reason when im pregnant i have horrible, and i mean horrible panic attacks and when im not pregnant my anxiety is usually really well controled. but i promise it will pass!

  • I think it's the hormones mixed with how unfair it is that we gain this enormous amt of weight, pain and all .. and they get to stay trim and fit and not worry about the scale, waking up 4x a night just to pee.... AND for me my back has been hurting and he doesn't even offer to help massage.. hello, it is partly your dealings that I am living with and he should help alleviate my stress... oh yeah, so that's why.. lol. Then in the next minute he kisses my belly and says hello baby.. and I am all melty so.. what can you do.
