Mood swings, sore breast, sensitive nose.... yeah I'm pregnant!

So I am getting closer to my 6th week of pregnancy and it's all starting to hit me, the symptoms I mean. Luckily they aren't really bad, well except the mood swings. I am so irritable lately. I can't help it and I wish I could. I find that so many things annoy me. I don't want to feel this way but it's so hard not to. I was never like this with previous pregnancies, but maybe it's the stress of it all taking its toll on me. I really don't know, but I need help for real!! Okay so not professional help but a break or something. Nick will be leaving soon, maybe tomorrow, which I am not really looking forward to. I have had to turn down all my AM work for next week because I don't have a babysitter for that early in the morning. I feel bad having to turn down work, especially when we could really use the money. With a baby on the way you always need money. We have nothing for a baby, I mean the big stuff anyway. We have a collection of outfits and toys that we have bought with all the other pregnancies. However, I feel stressed about the big things. I know why am I worrying about this now? I just found out, but as I said in a previous blog, I am a worrier. I worry about everything, ALL the time. It is such a curse. Anyway so back to this moodiness. I feel horrible about it, but it gets the best of me and before I know it I am steaming out my ears, nose and mouth. Nick asked me why I am so irritable. My reply, "Because everyone gets on my nerves!" I know, not the nicest thing to say, but for now it's true. I am hoping for a nice night of sleep so that I can wake up with a new attitude in the morning. Lord knows I don't want my bad attitude to rub off on my baby. Wow it just occurred to me I have a baby growing inside of me. It's weird the love that I feel for someone I don't know anything about. It is amazing isn't it?

Its not weird at all, and I'm sure your mood won't rub off on the munchkin...one day at a time, that's all you can do. Take deep cleansing breaths when you feel that temper rise...and I'm really one to talk, I know...read up on stress and natural stress relievers, that's boring enough to calm you down anyway! Don't worry about the big stuff you need for the baby...what do you need? Bassinets aren't that expensive, find one let me know how much one costs, I'll send you the money to buy it...or a crib...now sending him or her off to college is gonna be y'alls lookout, though...you got time...
love ya
