So I've been here twice before, so I know how tough the third trimester can be, regarding uncomfortability, heartburn, sleeplessness, swelling, water retention....all that fun stuff.
But this past week has brought on a brand new symptom: emotional basketcaseness. O.M.G. I'm out of control lately. I mean...crying at the drop of a hat, screaming at my poor kids (again, at the drop of a hat), etc. I get this way every once in awhile when I'm running on VERY little sleep, but am able to get over it by, well, getting more sleep. But I've been sleeping pretty well lately.
Has anyone ever experienced this? Is it hormones? Cabin fever (I did get out today and felt much better this afternoon, but I went to the gym yesterday and it was probably my worst day, so 6 of one...)? General physical exhaustion?
It's true that the last 2 times I've gone through the third tri I haven't been keeping up with school and extra-curricular schedules AND chasing around a psychotic screaming toddler. Maybe I'm just overextended?? Gah!!! Thoughts?? And is there ANYTHING I can do??? Help!!!!
