Sudden sense of being overwhelmed ? Mood swings maybe just venting
I’m 6 weeks pregnant with our second baby, and over the last two days I’ve had MASSIVE mood swings. Like happy one second and snapping at my husband who did not do anything wrong the next. From laughing with my son, to being totally ticked off because he threw his crayon to the floor... I know they say each pregnancy is different, but I NEVER had this with my son when I was pregnant with him. I was literally happy the whole time. I don’t want to be that bitchy pregnant woman who loses her mind over stupid shit. My 10 month old bulldog peed on the floor and I cried, and then proceeded to steal toys from my sons room to chew on- which made me livid. My in law- who we live with today said “oh you actually left the house?” In a sarcastic tone, and it literally set me off. He’s rude and belittling as it is- and we are a one income family - so I don’t make frequent trips to town and waste gas or just go spend money - unlike him, who has no responsibility and barely takes care of himself. But it pissed me off. Normally, shit like that id just blow off. Is this normal in the second pregnancy to be just a hormonal mess? Husband works 4 hours away and FaceTimes us at the end of the day - and when he can through the day, well he was on FaceTime with us after work, then had to talk to a co worker while talking to us- so he had to call us back. Of course that irritated me- normally wouldn’t. Then when he called back, I was snappy with him and shouldn’t have been. Making him not want to talk anymore to us- which I can’t blame him- but that just made it feel worse. I feel like I’m kinda loosing my mind here. I am normally a super happy person, and happy pregnant lady- but this last week has been a struggle. Like crying at shit for no reason, snapping at my husband which I NEVER do. I am a full time stay at home mom, with a one year old, 2 dogs, and have everything really balanced, and don’t have anyone to help me even if I wanted it, because it’s just me and our son, and 2 dogs all week. Just feeling frustrated, and having anxiety about how my son is going to be taken care of when I go into labor - 7 1/2 months away- I know. Still I worry. Whose going to take care of my dogs when I go into labor- again 7.5 months away - still bothers me. Husband is 4 hours away, and when I tell him - I don’t feel good today - it’s brushed off like “you got through our son, you ate Cheerios, and still went to work. Act like you have to go to work.” Not a “maybe take it easy today, or just leave chores for tomorrow, that don’t need to be done today.” Because when he comes home tomorrow night- guaranteed he’s going to check everything like he always has, and he doesn’t think pregnancy counts as an excuse for not getting everything done. I’m super overwhelmed and need to vent. Any advice on how to just let it go, when I get fed up with dumb shit would be helpful. Thanks for listening.
