did anyone else feel that their third trimester hormones were the worst?

i have just hit 34 week of pregnancy and i find that i have no patience what so ever and everything, even the littlest of things, seem to set me off. i can not seem to control my anger or temper. i know it is just hormones but they are absolutely terrible and than i feel guilty like i am hurting the baby by not being able to control them. has this happened to anyone else?

I have no patience what so ever. I try to be nice to my husband when he jokes around with me, but he doesn't seem funny to me right now. Usually I think he's hilarious. My poor cat has also felt the wrath of my hormones. She wants some attention and constantly meows because I don't spend enough time with her, but I have no patience. I yell at her for meowing and she runs away from me. I feel so bad but at this point I feel awful most of the time with cramps, braxton-hicks, contractions, and hot flashes that I just don't want to be bothered.

I feel that way now. Im 29 weeks, and i feel stressed for no reason, and i've noticed the more stressed i feel the quicker i lose my temper. I was not like this for my first child, so its hard to get use to and control it. sometimes i can't. ok, a lot of the time i can't control it. :/ I just hope it passes and i get over it soon!

I was in so much pain in my third trimester. I was stressed and in agony with hormones raging. I'm surprised any of us survived. I dunno how but somehow I managed to stay in control but I was MISERABLE!

Happens to me all the time and everyone thinks I'm crazy and I should be able to control it but sometimes I can't....no most of the time I can't. So don't be discouraged hoepfully for both of us it will pass once we see our beautiful babies.(oh I'm 35 weeks Thursday)

I just started into my third trimester. I am 27 weeks this week. I sometimes get very stressed out with things that probably normally wouldn't upset me as much. I don't remember if I was like this with my first son. It is nice to know that there are others that have the same problems that I seem to have. So it must be normal! Good Luck!
