I'm about 17.5 weeks, which is supposed to be that second trimester "golden period." For the last week, I've been super cranky, emotional, and on edge. It feels much like it did really early when I was a nutcase but was still testing negative on the HPTs because it was too early. DH is annoying me even when he's being sweet, and I know it's just me, nothing to do with him. I've been snapping at people at work, and heaven help the poor bratty teenager on her cell phone who cut in line in front of me yesterday. Most of the time I can remind myself that it's all in my head and not say anything, though I did have a breakdown on my poor hubby one night last week. I know part of it is stress. My company is going through a big re-org right now and I'd guess somewhere around 10-15% of the company will lose their jobs. My boss has a new position and I'm already doing work for him in that role, though I have to officially apply when the job gets posted next week. I wrote the job description, though, so I have a bit of an inside track. I'm also waiting for my amnio results, which I had Tuesday. We're not letting ourselves look at baby stuff, pick out names, etc. till we get those back. Finally, I have an auto-immune disease where the antibodies in my body can attack the baby and cause fetal heart block, so I've just started into the weekly screening period for that. I'm looking at weekly heart monitoring for the rest of the pregnancy, plus OB visits, plus regular ultrasounds since I'm also at risk for IUGR (and preterm delivery and pre-eclampsia.) DH has been gone all weekend and is now on his way to Nashville for a couple of days, which also doesn't help (or maybe the time alone will help, I dunno). So, anyway, I get why it's happening, sort of (hormones + stress), but I'm stuck about what to do about it. Anyone have suggestions? I exercise about 5 days a week, so that's probably not it. Prenatal massage so far is eh. Do I just tell everyone I'm cranky and suck it up? What do you do when you feel like you're going to bite everyone's head off even though they haven't done anything? Please, please, tell me I'm not the only one who feels like this. I'm hoping I'll go back to normal soon, but I feel bad for the people around me in the meantime. Thanks for any help!!!
