Pregnancy makes me really emotional: Advice?

Does anyone else go crazy in early pregnancy? Like to the point where all they do is cry, scream, and throw things? I can get very violent, bitter, and emotional with my other half. It’s very hard for me to control, so please no judging I’m just wondering if there are other mamas out there that get like this in the first trimester that go without medication from their doctor. My bf doesn’t help much around the house or with the baby. He’s always out drinking with his friends and comes home past midnight, so that contributes to the crazy.

I do and im 6 months

Girl, in my first pregnancy I almost left my husband because he said I didn’t make the chicken noodle soup gluten free for a church dinner. PACKED MY BAGS and left!! :woman_facepalming::woman_facepalming: Sounds like you at least have a legitimate reason for it!

Sounds like hormones. Aren’t they great?

No, screaming and throwing things, becoming violent really isn’t hormones, thats choice. Being extremely moody and irritable is.

There is NO EXCUSE for you to get violent with him. Stop using pregnancy as an excuse for that. Everything else, probably hormones.

At the beginning i was the same way. It slacked off a little in the second trimester. Now im almost 34 weeks and its back! Just let yourself ride the emotion train and realize it will be okay. Sending good vibes your way​:heart_eyes::heart_eyes:

Oh yes when I was pregnant with my daughter. I was like a caged animal. Hang in there!!

Your hormones are all over the place and you need support, physically and emotionally. He needs to step up, be a man and be there for you. Everyone deals with stress and pressure differently and reacts differently. When pregnant your reactions can be way more extreme than they normally would.x

I’m early in pregnancy too and I just cry all the time I feel very sad and alone even though there is people all around me

You should talk to your doctor. It’s not ok to treat anyone that way so there may be suggestions of medication they can give you.

My child’s father told me the first trimester was the worst he’s ever seen me, he said nothing can compare to that lol. I wouldn’t become violent but I’d scream and freak out all the time.

My first pregnancy I asked my husband to take the trash out. He didn’t do it within minutes so I threw knifes, skillets and a kitchen chair at him. Isn’t it great being preggo crazy lol.

Think to yourself if someone treated you like that how would you feel . It’s not ok for him to be out if he is not caring for his relationship at home but two wrongs dont make a right and you cant blame violence on pregnancy. You sound like you have other children, would pregnancy be a good excuse to be violent with them ? So you get my point . Dont let your emotions get outta control and dont let someone hurt you so bad you do .

I was like that when I was pregnant with my girl, just try to relax a little it will pass

I was very bad in my third trimester. My emotions were so intense! I’m 1.5w postpartum now and instead of being irritable, I feel guilty and nervous about everything. This is my second baby but I can’t help but think about everything that can go wrong. I hope your emotions settle down soon, and they probably will because they’re not likely to rage once you’re in the second trimester. Hang in there girl!

I was that way but I’m bi polar and was very young. I hadn’t quite learned how to find my zen yet in those days lol… but most women I know are pretty crazy during pregnancy… its different for everyone but these days a dr may give you something to help or at least advice on the matter…

Hormones are never an excuse to be violent. If you’re physically abusing someone, you need to get away from them and find yourself some help. It is perfectly normal to be emotional during pregnancy, but it is not normal to be violent, or like a previous comment, throw knives. That’s scary, and I feel bad for some of your men. I was super emotional with my son, but I would never think of hurting my husband. And even if I got angry, I NEVER felt like being violent.

The moodiness is normal… the way you handle it is up to you… maybe go out for a while when you feeling angry… go for a drive or walk, listen to some music, read… anything that contains you being away with whats upsetting you for a while. Also talk to ur significant other, first apologize for you actions, hitting and throwing things at him will not solve the issue. explain to him whats bothering you amd what he can do to help.

Damn… I was not at all this way. I dont think that you getting violent is normal AT ALL. Go to your doctor and tell them the truth about your lack of anger management.
