Emotional Venting

For the last two weeks or so, I've been really emotional. Every time someone tells me something negative or talks to me about something I've done wrong, even if it's something minor like forgetting to make the morning coffee, I have to run away to the bathroom and cry. I usually don't cry very often, especially at work. Every time I cry or get upset in any way, I get mad at myself, and then I get more upset because I'm mad, and then even more upset because I can't stop crying. It's a horrible cycle. I can't stand it! I know it's my hormones acting up, but I still feel totally helpless and weak. It's driving me absolutely nuts.

When does it end? When do I get to have normal emotions? Please someone tell me it gets better!

    It'll get "easier" a few months after the baby is born...those first 4-6 weeks can be a super emotional roller coaster because the hormones drop so quickly.  Thus the baby blues. 

    I think once you get pregnant and then have the baby - you're just a more emotional/sensitive person.  You'll adjust.  :)

  • You poor thing!

    I know exactly where you're coming from.  From what my other Mom friends tell me, it gets better around 6 months after your baby is born and your hormones stop being psychotic. Crying

    I went through the crying jags for a good month.  Now I'm in the angry camp.  That's much easier for me to deal with than being weepy and emotional.
