Out of Control Hormones are Making me Crazy! Advice needed!

Okay ladies, I need some advice. I am pregnant with my second child, as of January 14, I am 14 weeks along. With my son, I didn't have a lot of problems with hormones, I cried at dumb stuff and I had a couple of mood swings, but nothing too crazy.
This time around my hormones are so out of whack that I feel like I'm losing my mind! I am so far Beyond Irritable, it isn't funny. I Know I'm being borderline psychotic with my over reactions but I can't help it. If I try to hold it back and keep a lid on, I get so irritable I start to shake!!!
My son is almost 20 months old and my irritability doesn't involve him at all. I don't like his screaming, but I don't lose it with him, I still have patience and talk to him like I would any other time. But with other adults I'm crazy! I asked a girl at Taco Bell "is it right?" after I got my order from her and she looked confused, I asked again, and she said "no it's not right, we're short staffed," and I flipped on her "No, you IDIOT! Is my order right?!?!?!" I said it before I could filter it, I'm usually not like that. I mean, I might Think it, but I don't say it out loud!
I'm being such a b*tch but I can't seem to control it. Anyone else ever experience anything like this? What did you do about it?

I was so crabby like that when I was pregnant with my daughter. I wasn't like that with my son at all. My poor hubby took the butt end of my bitchiness. I would filter all day and just continue to boil. Then when my hubby would do nothing wrong, maybe just look at me funny or try to touch me in a way that I didn't want him to (seriously he could have tried to just hold my hand), I would lash out and say mean things and just be awful. Things did start to calm down for me when I hit about 6 months pregnant. I still wasn't back to normal, but it was better. Talk to your OB about it. Maybe he/she can give you something to calm your hormones down a little (I really don't know what is out there and available for this). Maybe you are having a girl and the flood of estrogen has really gotten you all out of whack. If the OB don't have anything for you, then just try to constantly tell yourself that you need to think before you speak. It is just you being pregnant that makes you like this and when you do act out in a way that you would not normally do (like the Taco Bell incident), try writing an apology letter to them. They may not appreciate it, but you will know that you have understood your mistake and tried to make it right. Good luck with the hormones. I know they are rough.
