Do any pregnant for the second time moms out there feel like the Incredible Hulk of Hormones or did you when you were pregnant?

Something about being pregnant and taking care of a toddler has taken my hormones to a whole new level. Occasionally something will make me cry or want to punch someone and there is this little voice in the back of head. It is my pre-pregnant self telling me to cut down on the crazy but I can't. That little voice is drown out by my Hulk self. "Cori SMASH! Cori want eat! Cori will crush the tiny non-pregnant single women that gripe about being tired when they really have no idea what tired is!"

I'm good around my toddler and husband but outside people make me want to be a hermit until the baby arrives. Traffic makes me yell things I don't want my toddler repeating. I don't really cuss but I don't want my two year old yelling at other cars either. (From the backseat, "Kidding me?! No wreck car! You go!" Heh... oops.)

I spent an hour on hold with my insurance company to be cut off when the lady finally answered. When I called back and she said she may put me on hold I burst into tears. They lady told me to "calm down" and that it "wasn't that serious"... Then I wanted to reach through the phone and punch her in the face. For someone who works at a health insurance company that specifically deals with pregnancy, this lady was not very bright. You just don't try to rationalize with a pregnant lady. She has more hormones racing through her veins than a pubescent teenager.

I promise I am not truly crazy. I have yet to go on a rampage and terrorize downtown while hanging from a skyscraper but I feel so much more emotional this time around. I just want to get through the next three months of Texas summer heat with my sanity in tact so that I can hold my baby girl and my little boy at the same time in September.

Anyone else? I want to know that I'm not the only pregnant one out there that has morphed into a big green hormonal monster.

I think we all get like that. I have a 6 year old and the little things he does that I used to be able to ignore seem to drive me absolutely crazy. My partner drives me insane also and sometimes I have no idea why I'm angry at him. Sometimes its just something I come to the realisation that it was something stupid and end up apologizing crying my head off.
I cry about everything, music adverts anything, even cartoons, which is very embarressing i know but it is true.
I have realised though that I don't know whether I'm coming or going so I might as well accept it or else I will go crazy lol took me to this second child to realize who I am and I do cry anyway so pregnancy makes it worse, I bottle up my anger so pregnancy lets it out and so does PMT. It'll take a short time after the baby is born to things go back to normal as everything will be hectic. But Things will be ok.

Facebook is dangerous too. The single whiner that always posts about being "tired"... Yeah... So sad for you...only not.

It seems a lot worse during this pregnancy. I think already being a mom adds a stress level to being pregnant. I have a few family members that I want to punch every time I'm around them right now. I have the dumbest brother-in-law ever. EVER. (As in cheated on my sister, drug problem, sorry excuse for a human being dumb.) I've never really enjoyed his company but now I feel a whole new level of rage just being around him. He is loud and obnoxious and likes to get my little monkey of a nephew all stirred up. I don't act on anything. I usually just sit there and smile and make an excuse to leave the family gathering before I hurt anyone. Then I rant about it to my husband or mom later.

You are not the only one. I am nearly 35 weeks with my second and I also would like to become a hermit. If I hear one more single 40 hour a week kinda person complain about being tired I think I am going to snap. I can control myself with my son and my husband, and for the most part our friends, but put me in a room full of strangers and all bets are off. I feel your pain!

Don't worry most women go through this. My husband always told our friends that he wanted to wear a bullet proof vest and a cup at all times and then I would start crying then he would really get scared. He was afraid if he tried to console me I would grab a knife and stab him. He never wanted to take me in public then I really had no tolerence for stupid skinny bitches and I would tell them so.

So no you are not alone. you will go back to normal after the baby is born. Summer heat will always make you turn into a crazy woman when pregnant. We have to stay covered up and then we see those nonpregnant ones running around at the pool in a 2 piece. So annoying.
