In need of a listening ear and some helpful advice!

Okay, so this may sound a little crazy, or maybe I am way too hard on myself. I don't know.
My daughter is about to be ten months old in three days. It has been brought to my attention that sometimes( or as my husband say: ALMOST ALWAYS ) I get really hateful in the mornings to my daughter. Early mornings suck, especially when she is screaming at the top of her lungs and nothing I do consoles her, especially when she wants a bottle. I honestly do not think I am that bad. I do get aggravated and stay aggravated a lot throughout the days, but I try my best to not let it slip out too much at my daughter. She doesn't understand nor deserves it.
I guess my main concern is whether or not I am butchering the bond she and I once had; or perhaps my husband wants to fuel the fire and upset me further.
Point blank, I feel shitty 99% of the time when it comes to my parenting skills. I try to talk to my friends and family, those who have small children of their own, and they all tell me it is a natural feeling and to not be so hard on myself.
I just don't want my daughter picking up any negative vibes from me, because I love this girl more than she will ever know.
If anyone would like to give me some input, I will gladly accept. And if one does notice that I am in the wrong, I am open for advice on how to fix myself.
My apologies that the post is a little all over the place. Thanks for the help, in advance.

I think your husband should be supporting you, not putting you down. He is the one person who is there all the time and can help you.
