    Hang in there, before you know it, you'll have a sweet baby in your arms. And your hormones will settle down.

    I had a friend who was past her due date and her hubby had had enough, and he took her for a truck ride on a very bumpy road, Yep the next day she went into labor! Good luck!

    Seriously though, 3 weeks can seem like an eternity! Hang in there and just enjoy this time. I miss the feel of the kicks, being fat and having an excuse, believe me once that belly deflates it's a whole nother world!!!

    Do you know if you are having a boy? I have 3 kids my first 2 were girls and no mood swings, morning sickness etc... My last pregnancy (my darling son) WOW!! I was crying every hour of my last month. Mood swings galore. Hubby took the girls and himself to his moms house alot the last couple weeks. I was sick to my stomach all the time. They say boys cause more trouble during pregnancy. (don't know how true it is) But definately more emotional with my son.. Just a thought [​IMG] Hang in there, you will feel better soon..

    My wife was sick and grouchy through both pregnancies. It was miserable for her and me. The postpartum stuff was a bummer too. After two children, we're going to call that good.

    Lol. You think you're bad? Add being bi-polar on top of being pregnant. There are days that I would work 13 hours straight at work, then come home and buzz around cleaning and cooking and all that garble, then other days that I'd call off work and lay in bed, literally, all day.
    To be honest, the hormonal stages were worse in the beginning of my pregnancies. Hubby just LOOOOVVVEED not being able to sleep because he had to stay up with me while I bawled my eyes out about absolutely nothing whatsoever.
    Is this your first? Everything seems to go so slow, then WHABAM, you're in labor & delivery, then WHABAM, you blink your eyes and your itsy baby is a toddler already. Believe me, our son is 15 months, and I can't believe where time went.
    Shortly after our son was born, I wanted to try for another. I talked hubby into it, and, well, there've been times that I've looked him in the eyes and said "why in the heck didn't you talk me out of it this soon?! All you had to do was remind me how ungodly awful being pregnant was!"
    I don't know what is worse, choosing to either breathe or eat (due to a lack of room for lungs AND stomache), or when the baby is crammed down into your pelvis and you feel like you've been kicked by a horse in your nether region. OR, lol, my favorite, going braindead, literally. Gosh, I hate(d) that. It was worse the first time (maybe because I'm not due until April, so I'm not far enough yet), but I would be talking and in the middle of the sentence, I'd completely forget what I was saying. I wouldn't even remember the general conversation. THAT was very hard for me, I couldn't stand it when strangers (and family members half the time!) would look at me like I was mentally incapable.

    BUUUTTT, once everything is all said and done with, you'll never regret it. [​IMG] I think there's a hormone that women produce that make them forget the awful things about pregnancy as a species survival type deal. By the time you remember how miserable you were, you're already going through it again, lol.


    ETA: I do see now that you said you had another baby. Sorry about that.

    I would say with your hormones already raging like crazy, keep an eye on yourself AFTER birth as well and don't be afraid to ask your care provider for help or meds, if needed. Keep an eye on yourself for post partum depression.

    I have to say I don't know that I've felt to the extreme that you're saying with any of my pregnancies. Maybe randomly, but definitely not the entire 9 months. Though there are random days when I can barely stand to be around myself [​IMG] it doesn't last long, thank goodness.

    Good luck on your impending labor and birth!

    I got so bad that one day DH came home from work and stood just out of reach of the door and tossed Hershey's kisses at me til I smiled!!

    When I asked him what to tell your husband he said, " Tighten your seat belt! The ride will be bumpy but wouldn't it be boring if there were no surprises??"

    I had horrible post partum for both babies, but the second time DH was prepared and he dragged me to a doctor pretty quickly. The true nature of love: coming home when you know she's insane and loving her anyway because you know IT IS ALL YOUR FAULT!!!! [​IMG]
