so i'm pregnant with my 3rd child, my oldest is 3 years 5 months, and my youngest is 14 months. so needless to say i have my hands full already, my husband has a great job which allows me to stay at home with the kids. i love it but sometimes it feels like its too much. i have been so on edge this past week. everything gets to me, everything. i go from furious to crying my eyes out in 5 minutes. and i feel left out. i'm the only person i know that is prgnant so everyone is going out having fun , going to amusement parks. and i can't do anything! i don't know if this is really a question or if i'm just venting. does anybody else feel like this? i guess i just want to know i'm not the only person feeling like this

I was like that in my first pregnancy. Very on edge, tense, high strung. I cried, i threw things over nothing. Good thing it was my first child because if I had set that kind of example for one of my children, man would I have felt bad. Seriously, I had absolutely no control over myself. I acted on pure emotion. I would cry for 3 hours straight because my fiance worked an extra half hour and I was lonely for that half hour so I would cry all night about it. And I had friends who were pregnant and had small children and I just stayed at home, didn't call anyone because for some reason I thought they were all judging me and thought I was crazy and towards the end I was the one who thought I was crazy and told my fiance I needed a psychiatrist and just when I thought it was never going to end, I had the baby and slowly over the next 3 months, my hormones leveled out and I came back to myself again. Hang in there and I hope it doesn't get as bad for you as it was for me. I wish I had advice but I didn't handle it myself very well. All I can say is talk to your friends about it cuz I think isolating myself made it alot worse. Thank god I'm not like that this pregnancy!

I am the same way! I have been especially emotional over the last two weeks as 2 very stressful events occurred and my husband was out of town during both!

Do either of you know the sex of your baby? I only ask cuz when I was pregnant with my daughter, I was very emotional and that is not like me. I do not know the sex of my baby but feel like it is a girl as this pregnancy is very similiar to my pregnancy with Mollie.
