    Has anyone else found that they get easily offended more so now they are pregnant than what they did before? I work for customer services so am used to having my fair share of people ranting and letting rip at me. I have found that recently i have been taking things much more personal. This is not like me at all lol, i am usually alot more thick skinned and would shrug this type of thing off.

    It's not just at work, i could be having a chat with friends etc and i just find their comments rude and un-called for. Even threads on here, i know its my opinion and if people don't like it then tough (no disrespect intended to anyone just trying to get my point across lol) and i feel like i am being attacked. :dohh:
    It's getting silly now as i know its not personal. I hope its just the pregnancy hormones and im not getting soft in my old age. Just had to get that off my chest! xxx

    yes i agree hun :thumbup: i am quite a sensitive person and take things to heart but whenever i am pregnant i am constantly thinking "well what did he/she mean by that......" and over analysing and becoming offended so eaily. i always think people are getting a dig in at me. x

    Oh, I can totally relate to that, you're not alone there. I'm super sensitive not only to how I word things but also how it's worded to me, and like today, I've picked up on energies that just weren't there really. I was feeling sorry for myself cause I have a stomach ache and didn't feel I was getting any sympathy from my husband, but that wasn't the case at all, lol.. also can relate to sharing opinions on here and with others. I seriously couldn't work in customer service at this point in time, I gotta say. Think I would be a lot ruder than necessary, lol....

    I am glad i am not alone in feeling this way. I feel like a bit of a tart starting this thread in the first place to be honest. Like i said normally i would just get on with it!

    You have no idea how close i have come lately to putting the phone down on people (of course i never would, but the urge is there). I actually find myself debating with the customer now, where normally i would roll over with "the customer is always right" frame of mind, now i'm like screw you, you don't talk to me like that! It feel quite satisfying and even enjoyable to be honest lol!

    I'm exactly the same as you. Pregnancy definitely seems to make you ultra sensitive. I was at my worst during the first trimester... thankfully it does seem to have got a bit better.

    i basically told someone to bring their own bloody phone charger into work (not in those words, i was a bit more courteous) not knowing who this person complaining at me for his phone running out of battery and he's lost his charger and the spare we only have because someone left it wasn't working. usually i would have done the IT grin and done my best... turned out he was only a managing director of the entire bloody company... oops. thankfully i did try and help him out, and THEN somebody told me who he was. talk about frantic brain work trying to work out how rude i'd actually been, even if he had been very rude to me initially... it was one of those days *sigh*

    I can relate!! But I'm also finding that I'm not only alot more sensitive to comments and and things but also that I don't seem to stand up for myself anymore! :nope:

    I hope it is just the hormones.. I feel like a right push over lol

    Hopefully we will return to normal at some point after the baby reaches 18. :D LOL. It's hormones, or so they keep telling me. :o/ That's why I shouted at a rude old lady in the post office last week; it's why I cried when my horse escaped onto the neighbour's garden and trashed the rockery; and it's why I've told my family I'm not seeing them at xmas because they are so selfish. I'll be more reasonable soon, I'm sure!!!!

    I'm dead inside. I feel no additional emotions whatsoever.
