Irritability and cravings don't even begin to cover how bitchy and hungry I am when I'm pregnant.
But to answer your question, they last the whole time. The cravings tend to peek in the second trimester (mostly bc by the time you get to the third trimester, you can't fit any food and get so disgusted that you just hate the thought of food lol). And the irritability peeks (in my experience) in the third trimester. For me, it's like PMDD that starts early and worse than usual and just gets worse from there.

The best way to have a happy pregnancy is to choose to. Find a way to excuse the things that irritate you and find a way to quiet the cravings so you're not depriving yourself, but balancing that with not putting on 45# either.

They can go away in a minute or last the entire pregnancy. Remember though, that despite how you feel you're still in control of yourself and how you handle this pregnancy.
