Angry On Edge

I"m about to freak out my mom has been staying with me for almost 2 wks now (she goes back home Thursday) but I have become so moody I dont want to be around my friends, her anyone. I loose my temper way to easy anymore. My OB told me that within the next couple weeks I would be at my max. hormone level and I'm thanking god my husband isn't here, but what can I do?? I'm stressed because of him not being here, that things have been going wrong with my pregnancy, and honestly I want to have my son. If anyone can give me any bit of advice it would be great. Thanx.

Re: On Edge

the only thing that you can really do is maybe find a quiet place and relax if that is possible.
i have been going off on my poor family alot lately and i feel really bad. HORMONES!!!!!!!!!!!!
it seems that i have nowhere to go for privacy and relaxation right now because we live in a 2 bedroom with 4 of us. i can't even go to the bathroom without someone bothering me. even my cats are bothering me.
right now as i am on the computer everyone just came in the room
can't wait till my hormones get back to normal.
feels good to vent.

Re: On Edge


I can completely understand that. I guess I have to say I'm kind of lucky that my husband isn't home because he puts up with enough stress at work being in the army. I mean he's half way across the world and I can still stress him out. My cats I can say I have been lucky they haven't been bothering me to much. I feel bad because I come in my room and shut my mom out. But thank god I have an excuse. Homework. LoL. Good thing about going back to college and doing it all online. It's all just stressful though. I feel soo bad to say it because I really want my son to be born. I mean the rate he has grown and everything, we all think he's ready to come. I'm hopin my OB will say the same. It's really nice to have someone else to talk to bout this. D*mn Hormones!!! LoL.

Wink Re: On Edge

Hon, I feel for ya. Best advice is sleep. If you can still get sleep. I am not sure how far along you are, but my hormones are usually expressed at work. So I guess that is one good thing cause those poor people don't have to live with me! Ha! But rest would really help you and GETTING outside. Of course I have no idea wha tthe weather is like where you are, but hang in there!

Re: On Edge

Hun, I cant thank you enough for the advice. I try to sleep as much as I can. It's becoming harder and harder these days. I am 29 or 30wks tomorrow (they cant seem to make up their minds). OMG I cant believe it. LoL. It's hard to get much sleep when I dont know when my husband will call or get online so I'm on edge with that. It doesn't help I seem to have a cat that sleeps right next to my head too. LoL. But I do get out as much as possible, I live in Colorado so it's hard especially since I live on base and when the wind gets bad it gets bad. I do so much walking that I think it would ware me out but it never does. Thanx again.

Re: On Edge

I am a big believer in being able to put things into perspective, hormones or no hormones. I believe people make decisions, and try to realize when you are feeling frusterated and make the decision to not let it show and how your actions or irratations may effect others, especially those you love. I also know what military life is like and stay optimistic when you speak to your husband, he also has a lot of things going on too and he is the expectant father on top of his duties he has now. I am due about the same time as you and we are almost there. These next couple of months will go by before we know it. Take care,

Re: On Edge

yay I am so glad its not just me who feels like this!!! I am in week 29 too and i am EXACT;Y the same. I am grumpy and dont feel like socialising with anyone (except my husband) i just want some alone time and dont want to hang around my friends etc who all of course at the moment all want to come around to see me and i feel rude when i say i just dont feel like hanging around people right now and to top it off i start crying anyway for no reason and although i know my friends will understand i dont really want to express my emotions like that in front of them all the time. We also have my husbands cousin living with us who we asked to move out before the baby is due as that is driving me nuts aswell. Its terrible!! And i start crying as all i want is to return to my normal happy SOCIABLE self. I cant wait to have my baby boy but (and i feel selfish in saying this) but i am really looking forward to pregnancy being over with.Thats my whinge for now thanx for listening

Re: On Edge

You truly arent' the only one. I cant wait to have my baby boy either. We know that his lungs and heart and everything are already all developed so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that maybe he will decide to come early. I have some friends who have kids but they dont understand any of this and it drives me nuts. I have one friend who is like oh I understand what you are going through but I dont understand what it's like for my husband to be gone during it so of course me, I'm like how in the h*ll can you understand than. I have a really good support of friends who do understand and I guess all of the guys over with my husband are all worried and everything so it's all good. i guess I dont have to worry, I just get the stress out part LoL. I'm so ready to have him, I keep talkin to him telling him, you can come at any time momma really doesn't mind. LoL. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed. But I can look at it too that it's almost over, but its still sooo far away. LoL.

Re: On Edge

My suggestion would be for a little pampering...I know, it doesn't make dh come back, but getting a movie and some good takeout, or taking a warm bath, or reading a good book may occupy your mind long enough to relax you. When my dh leaves, I become a regular at the video store just because I end up watching the news and my nerves just can't handle that. I am also a big fan of denial LoL.
I hope you are able to relax a little bit and spend some time with your little guy before he comes--I know worrying about complications can be rough stuff too. I was reading on one of the bedrest sites I visit that it's ok to cry like a madwoman if you feel like it...sometimes it's just the kind of release you need.
Take care!

Re: On Edge

I thank you for the advice. I will have to think about that. I cant seem to watch movies anymore because that was something that was ours to really spend time together. It's horrible I've bought a couple new movies didn't even watch them and just sent them straight on to him. I've tried the bath, but it seems I just sit there and get my sad. I dont truly want to say depressed because I know it's not that. I might just have to try the good cry thing. I think that might be just what I need. I"m just counting down till April because than I will get to see him for 2 wks, and his deployment will be half over with. I just hope that things get easier, but I will look into some relaxing remidies.
