Its about this time in every pregnancy I have had, that I get super-duper hormonal.
The good old half way mark.
I get overwhelmed really quick.
I get really really sad and emotional.
Sometimes I’m not sure if it is the hormones, as I am certain that people and situations give me the absolute shits, but what I am sure of is that my reaction to things is often well and truly heightened at this stage of pregnancy.
The little things bug me way worse than they have ever done before.
I find myself snapping and getting short with people a whole lot faster than I would normally.
I am over emotional and the smallest thing or event can set me off.
The cat took a flying leap across the dining room where I was sitting at my computer, and latched its super sharp claws into my bare upper arm, slowly shredding my skin as it slid off. I’m pretty sure it was chasing a fly.
However my first reaction was what I would call ‘normal’.
I let out an almighty yelp, dropped the ‘f-bomb’ and chased that pesky cat out of my sight while I mopped up the blood with a baby wipe.
Now here comes the hormones….
Before I knew it, I was howling my head off. I was blubbering and sobbing uncontrollably.
I cried because I was tired. I cried because I was going to have extra responsibilities later that day. I cried because I hadn’t put the clean washing away. I cried because hubby had to go out. I cried because I would have to drive the big bus of ours up the main street for the first time on my own.
You name it, I had a sob about it for a full half an hour.
Not once in my sobbing did I think about the bloody cat or the pain in my arm.
And then like magic, the tears stopped and I carried on with the work I was doing before the cat rudely interrupted me.
Pregnancy Hormones at their best??? Seems that way.
What I want to know though, am I the only one that cries at the drop of a hat or laughs uncontrollably out of the blue?
Do/did you behave like this during your pregnancies?
