Pregnancy mood swings can drive a woman crazy…let alone the rest of her family. This is a great article written by Sabrina Garibian which was posted on http://blogs.babycenter.com/mom_stories/pregnancy-mood-swings/

The 3 way pendulum.

I hear the key wiggling in the doorknob and immediately rush toward the door. My husband, who I adore and love to just pieces, is home. I give him the biggest hug I can manage with this bowling ball belly, a nice sloppy kiss, and smile until my face hurts.

I love my life.

Ten minutes later I’m rummaging through the fridge for our dinner ingredients, and I’m angry. I’m so angry that my head is about to explode in 1,000 pieces, each piece erupting in flames. I forgot to buy milk, and since I can’t eat my breakfast without milk for my (decaf) iced coffee I will have to run out first thing in the morning. I’m extra rough with the cabinets and pans as I make dinner, and I notice my husband slowly creeping to the living room and out of the line of fire.

And then later I am watching an old episode of Charmed as my husband’s phone rings. He steps away to answer it, and by the time he returns I am sobbing. Phoebe just had to vanquish Cole, and she is devastated. I feel her devastation and can’t stop crying, even though I realize how ridiculous it is.

I think I am finally experiencing pregnancy mood swings, and it isn’t a pretty sight.

Can anyone relate to this madness? It’s like I am having an out of body experience with the extreme moods over here.
