You break into uncontrollable sobbing while watching Coast Watch's segment about a police boat rescuing a man whose tinny had capsized... then continue sniffling through the segment about fishermen catching undersized oysters!!

My poor DH thought I'd gone bananas  unsure.gif

I cry watching One Born Every Minute... that stuff chokes me up! Also when my husband says something which ordinarily not annoy me it makes me cry now when in the past I'd say something smart back.

What has happened to me? Oh yeah - baby. Haha.

Oh how I wish my hormonelness came out in tears, instead I have turned into this Ogre who yells at my more Husband for no good reason... The other day it was because he sneezed too loudly.. come on really and I could hear myself having a go at him and the little voice in my head was like what are you on about but it didnt stop me anyways haha.
He understands it is just my hormones going a bit nuts but geez I just look like this crazy angry lady yelling for no reason, lucky we were at home when he dared to sneeze lol

yep. My DH is annoying the daylights out of me the way he eats. I nearly have to leave the room. He has his mouth closed but I can hear his jaw click and the food munch around. I seem to have supersonic hearing as well wink.gif  I did give him a filthy look yesterday for slurping his tea which he found amusing of course.

When you burst into tears because the kitchen timer didn't work, even though you didn't burn anything.  That was towards the end of being pregnant the first time round.

Don't belong here but this thread made me laff.

My DP was a walking target - I would glare at him, and start looking around for something to yell at him for.

The way he ate, sat and breathed were all ammunition.

This behaviour was also amidst the feeling-sexy moods, the glowing-expectation moods, the don't-just-sit-there-feed-me-something moods, the I'm-so-lucky-moods and the weeping-over-the-Huggies-ad moods.

Man I loved being pregnant.

Me too! He was eating bread and making so much noise. FGS, how do you make that much noise with bread?!? rant.gif

You know your pregnant/hormonal when you yell at your DH because he said to drive carefully to work, "Of course I will! Do you really think I'm that stupid to drive dangerously?!" and then he replies that he meant it more as, be careful and when I realise what a cow I was, I cried all the way to work... blink.gif Poor hubby!

I rarely cried before this!

LOL!  This was me pregnant...  Now that DS is here, let's just say I'm back to 'my old self'.

When you keep telling your DH that he smells.  BO, bad breath, wet t-shirt smell, onions (which he reallly never eats???!!!).  He just smells awful to me all the time, lol.

You find yourself compulsively scoffing brussels sprouts and utterly loathing the taste of them but can't stop eating....

You can smell the salt and vinegar chips being eaten 3 rows back by someone at the movies and think you're about to puke.

I cry at so much now, even watching the segments about the new years fireworks around the world was making me teary  unsure.gif  blush.gif . I also burst into tears if I feel someone says something about me even mildly negative.

On the flip side things annoy me a lot now days, people around me who go on about the same things, or have weird thoughts/opinions on things, or if they just don't get something the first time. I also find my kitchen annoying to (except the stove, I love the stove  rolleyes.gif ).
