I wouldn't worry about being normal, nothing seems normal when you are pregnant and your hormones are off the wall. I went through the same sense of helplessness when I was about 20 weeks pregnant and I found a lot of support here. I think the one thing I learned from it was it would get better and it really did. Lately for me it has re-surfaced a little, but now it has a lot more to do with the way I feel about my appearance. I am 33 weeks and I feel huge and unattractive and no matter what my husband says I just feel blah all the time! I know right now nothing anyone does or even says is going to be right, it takes some time but it will get better. Best of luck to you, I am sure things will get better and when it's all over hug your boyfriend and thank him for understanding. I could only imagine what it feels like to be on the receiving side of the pregnancy monster! Our poor men!
