Turn It All Off ~ A Moment Of Silence, Please

With pregnancy comes many fun, interesting, different, and even uncomfortable things. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very grateful for this second blessing of life on the way. I’m more grateful than I could ever put into words.

Lately, I’ve been having mood swings. CRAZY, unpredictable, “Stand back!” mood swings. It reminds me a lot of when I first started having menstrual cycles at the age of 13. I would become so wickedly moody that my mom would throw money at me and beg me to go buy the chocolate I would not stop asking for. (when I think back to 13, and stories like the one I just told, I crack up. Maybe someday I’ll laugh about this too.)

So, back to the present. I wake up fine. Sometimes I’m tired, but for the most part, I’m feeling okie-dokie. The day wears on and whether or not I get an afternoon nap, I turn into quite a bear by 4:00. The smallest thing sets me off. The noise, the music on a show Alex is watching, Alex whining about something that I said “no” to…you get the picture, right?

I just suddenly feel so angry that I don’t know what to do with myself. It’s like P.M.S. x’s 100.  Most of the time, I just sit down and cry or take some long, deep breaths until the mood passes. Sure enough, though, the mood returns out of nowhere and I have to go through my “quieting” all over again.

I wish I could just turn off every sound inside and out, put on my eye mask, and just sit in pure silence. (Having a toddler boy makes that quite impossible.)

So, anywho, please tell me that someone else felt crazy like this when they were pregnant. I went through the mood swings when I was pregnant with Alex but I haven’t had any issues this pregnancy until now. If you’ve gone through this before, do you have tips on how to find some peace and quiet while staying home with a toddler? How about some tips on how to help myself get over the mood swing?
