Fighting the delete you?

I dunno about yall, but my friends are really beginning to annoy me. Especially one on Facebook. His updates are just so arrogant and negative! Ugh. I think it's just the hormones, honestly, because he's a cool guy off the computer. His arrogance doesn't bother me so much.

I can't just say, "My pregnancy caused me to delete you. Sorry. Maybe I'll befriend you in 7 months and 6 weeks?"

I'm finding myself really fighting the urge to delete people on my friends list.

Anyone else with similar issues? Are your hormones really highlighting negative attributes of your friends/family? Are they causing you to not want to deal with their BS?

Especially for those of you who are keeping it a secret for a little while anyway, how do you deal with these emotions to just "delete" people out of your life? To stop yourself from snapping and saying, "STOP BEING A FREAKIN CRY BABY!!!"

Advice/stories are much appreciated, Ladies. Thanks for reading.

This is my 2nd pregnancy almost in a row (they will be 17 months apart). Although I am super excited now about the baby I am SO not excited about being pregnant again. I was still breastfeeding when I found out lol. Anyway, I can absolutely relate. For example, my husband and I got in a small arguement on our way out to lunch. I can't even remember what it was about, it was so insignificant but it brought me to tears. I was still crying as we left the car, sat down, were being waited on and halfway through the meal. It was embarrassing for us both but I could NOT stop!

I am never this emotional or irritable. I cry over songs, TV shows, commercials, sad is RIDICULOUS! I am especially irritated at my husband for snoring, leaving things around the house, how he says things to me...I am feeling the way toward my mother if I spend too much time with her as well. They are both wonderful loving people but they do have their flaws and they seem to be magnified to me. I'm kind of embarrassed by writing all this but just so you know you aren't the only one! My irritability has gotten a bit better now that I am at 20 weeks but tears are still flowing frequently!

Facebook lets you not see people in your news feed if you don't want to. I think you can make it so they can't see everything you post too, but I don't know about that personally. But if you just adjust it so you can't see his updates you'll feel better without actually deleting him. I had to do this with people who just never stop posting things and it would just take up my entire news feed!
