I had no idea before pregnancy what people were talking about when they discussed hormones. now I so get it. I find myself moody a lot of the day. I feel impatient, extra sad and just not myself. is this how a lot of women feel during pregnancy?

I saw my baby shower invitation and cried. they are so special.

I received this email and cried:
"I received the baby gown that I ordered from you today and it is so beautiful that I literally burst into tears! (hormonal much?!) It is the first time that I've seen my little guy's name all written out and it is so sweet! I had my son's one year pictures taken in a shirt of yours, and now I will be getting my next son's first pictures in his. Thank you for making such a beautiful, affordable, timeless product. I will be back! (too often for my husband's comfort probably...)
ps congrats on your own little guy!"

my friend (in the picture below--I had to include it because I know she loves it!) wrote saying she was going to come up a day before or after my shower so we could spend alone time together and get pedicures. that made me really happy. and I cried.

do pregnant women feel needy? or is that just me? I never want my husband to go to work, I never want to be alone (I used to love this) and I am extra irritated about a lot of things.


hoping this will end when the baby comes but I've heard it only gets worse.

oh lordy, my poor husband!

I can't wait to see him holding our son like this

now what in the world am I moody for when I have that to look forward to?!

I am moody with a capital M. It frustrates me so much because I know I have so much to be thankful for, but it is totally uncontrollable hormones making me throw these lil pity parties. My experience is that is eventually gets better after the baby...not as quickly as husbands may hope! You're totally normal!! :)

The emotional rollercoaster never ends, but that's not to say it's a bad thing. Having children really does mean wearing your heart on your sleeve!
