Pregnancy Rage... Not just mood swings... Actual rage!


Is anyone else feeling this? Its something I'm struggling with at the minute! Im 6+5 and the smallest thing will set me off! It started Sunday, I got mad at OH because I was bored, told him to leave me alone because I wanted really really felt like I wanted to smack him in the face!!!! Thi is not your average mood swing!!! Yesterday it started again, I got really mad because there was nothing good to watch on the TV (haha its funny now). Luckily OH mustve felt a shift in the air as he went out and came back with lots of treats which prevented the full blown sissy fit that was brewing!

This is my worst syptom so far, Ive had the odd bout of quesyness and sore boobs but not much else!

So ladies, anybody else feeling extremely angry and aggressive for no real reason? Or am I just a weirdo lol x

my first pregnancy I was like that, like someone mowing their lawn at 8am had me flipping out and actually shaking with rage. It was horrible. It did go away it was more a first tri thing. I was all over the place with my first. Even last preg my hormones where bad. I felt sorry for my other half putting up with me.

snap - although i am now 10 weeks and I seem to be a bit calmer. for the last 2 weeks I have been horrid. I feel so sorry for my husband, I just couldn't help it! My mood swings would come out of no where and I would scream for no real reason and get SO angry it was unreal! at times I could barely remember what happened, quite scary really. I am hoping that each week that passes, the moods/angry goes away!!!

Yeah, I totally had that. In an argument with OH, I actually went into a total rage and started hitting the dashboard really hard and repeatedly with an orange juice bottle, screaming and crying, and only realized after we'd gotten into the house that I'd caused my jagged middle finger ring to actually cut into my finger and cause it to bleed and had caused one of the other joints on my index finger to bleed. Besides that, I could feel the tension and stress and adrenaline in my body and instantly felt so guilty because I knew that had to harm the baby and could not be good for the baby! I went into a slight rage the next day but then I actually took my OH and I to a mediator to talk about our problems and come to some agreements so that I wouldn't be provoked into rage and I also made the agreement that I would control my emotions better, because it's not just about me anymore, it's about the baby. That was the most important thing I realized - it is not about who is right in the argument, me, OH, someone else, etc., it is about making sure the baby is safe, and the baby is not going to be safe if there is continual high stress and arguing and screaming and tension. It's important to do what you can to remain calm, leave the situation, take a walk, etc., because it's not healthy and to some degree it can be controlled. I've been doing a good job of controlling it and haven't had an outburst like that since! I know it can be hard because emotions and hormones are raging around but you'd be surprised how much you can control them when you take into account that negative, high-intensity situations could actually harm your baby.

I'm glad its not just me! Thank god OH has learned very quickly when its happening and knows I really can't help it haha! I just hope I dont go ballistic at some poor innocent stranger for something of nothing!

It was a bad mood swing that made me test and get my BFP. I wanted to dry my hair and OH was playing xbox... All the sockets where full so I pulled the first plug I touched... Which was of course the damn xbox! Then I proceded to go mad AT HIM because I unplugged his console and ruined HIS game! Hahaha! I warbled on for a good half an hour that the socket which I now had my hairdryer plugged into was MY socket and I'd be damned if he was allowed to plug any of his s**t in there! How ridiculous! He's not dared to ise that socket ever since!!! That incident was nowhere near as intense as my recent ones though... Lets all hope I dont end up banged up for starting a riot before second tri arrives hahaha x

haha! Sorry but that made me laugh so much! that's exactly the sort of thing that I would do! start losing it over something that didn't even effect me but him instead! priceless Its a horrible feeling when you start to lose control, I'm really trying to watch what I say and try and bite my tongue and just realise how utterly unreasonable I am being.It's hard but I am lucky that my husband is pretty understanding... although I don't think he could handle another 7 months of it... neither could I for that matter!! what with mood swings, the feeling like I am going to puke at any point, no sleep due to constant peeing every hour, bloated feeling all the time, greasy hair and spots... who would've though the first tri would be this much fun!

I've had this all 3 times. With my first son, it was AWFUL! With my second son, it wasn't as bad. I've flown off the handle already this time, and I'm only 5 weeks along. That's how I knew - it happened at 4 weeks exactly, and I threw coffee across the room because my partner kept unplugging the coffee maker. For some of us, I think it's just how our bodies handle these crazy pregnancy hormones. My suggestion is to apologize in advance to your OH ...and to tell him, he should probably get used to it for a while. hah
