On the swingset of moods. Help

Hello. I am 35 with one DS who will be 11 this year. I am also Diagnosed PTSD from the Navy ( where I served with marines as their medical corpsman). I am also bi polar. I am 4 weeks and hate this intense irritability and snapping angrily at my DH. I am struggling as I can't take anything. Last year I was pregnant and stayed on only trazadone and well I miscarried at 6 weeks 6 days. I also upon finding out of my new arrival I quit smoking ( after 30 years. Yes unfortunately I smoked during my first pregnancy. My DS is perfect health. But it stressed me out in labour knowing I could have caused him major damage). So my irritability is also increased. I have been excited all week until after sex with DH today. A wave of depression hit n needless to say we had an all out screaming argument. :(. I am so scared now all this stress could make me miscarry again. I go wed to see my psych dr.

    I have been having some mood swings as well. I have suffered with depression for many years now but I have been in a good place lately. However yesterday I yelled at my husband for not wanting to go to walmart with me. I also cried after sex because I am worried about having another miscarriage. So all I can say is that I hope we can both get through a happy and healthy 9 months!

    I have stayed on depression meds for both my pregnancies and will for this one as well. I hope and pray that you can find some relief. I'm sorry you're going through this. >:D<

    Just quit smoking too. (I know, I know. Should have done it sooner.) This is my third day without nicotine. Luckily, I'm not feeling angry. But I am sad. I'm in the stage where I feel like cigarettes were my best friend and my best friend is dead and I really miss my best friend!!! Also, my brain is soooo foggy that I can barely think. I think if I were trying to do anything demanding, I'd get irritated pretty quickly, because I'm totally brain dead. I'm self-employed, and I sort of took the day off (second day in a row). And. yeah, I feel really guilty about that. I'm usually very self-motivated. But I literally cannot concentrate and use my brain right now. Stupid nicotine withdrawal. Grrr. (Someone else somewhere said that they felt foggy-brained just from pregnancy, but I have put my fingers in my ears and begun singing to myself, "It's nicotine withdrawal. It'll go away tomorrow" very loudly.)

    Anyway, OP, I'd bet anything it's so bad because you're quitting smoking. That's emotional enough as it is. Last time I quit cold turkey, I got real, real weepy and crazy. This time it's exactly the same, only my boobs hurt and it's waaay easier to resist the cravings thinking about my baby Sagittarius. :)

    Why do you think it's after sex? This actually relaxes me. I know it's different for everyone though.
