Pregnancy: Hormones like Whoa

Crazy hormones are the one thing you will have during your pregnancy. If you think period hormones are bad just wait until you get pregnancy hormones, it's like triple the craziness. I've experienced crying from laughter, crying from joy, and crying just because Jonathan ate the last yogurt. My hormones calmed down a bit from the beginning, well until this week. Week 23 of pregnancy the extreme hormones came back like a slap in the face, hard and unexpected. This time around however my hormones didn't make me have mood swings from happy to sad in 3.5 seconds, they made me hate everyone. This is not an exaggeration. I was filled with so much anger and hate this week it is almost comical. I would get angry just looking at someone. I had a "shit list" that pretty much included everyone I saw and some people I didn't even have to look at I added them to the top of the list. The proof of the raging angry hormones came out on my face in the form of teenager zits all over. Joy.

What's up with that baby?

Have you other mamas or mamas to be had crazy hormones that filled you with rage? Please tell me I'm not the only one.

Also an apology should be issued to Jonathan since he got the brunt of the anger.

  1. I didn't really notice my hormones until after I had Wyatt. Post-baby my thyroid went hay-wire & I was on a roller coaster!! Jason would look at me like who is this crazy woman! Thankfully things have evened out...One of the many joys of motherhood-I hate to say it but welcome to the club. None of it will matter when you get to stare at & cuddle that sweet little baby:)
