  1. Hi all,

    I am wondering if anyone else is feeling this way. I am thrilled about my twin pg. and really looking fwd to it. However, emotionally I am just feeling awful. Very moody all the time, easily angered and frustrated all 8the time, and finding myself getting mad at DH all the time. We do have our disagreements like any married people, but i find that my patience is just not there. I feel like blowing up at any given opportunity -- disagreements about household chores, dinner, making plans for the babies' room, for different financial decisions -- whatever it is, we seem to be fighting about it and it usually ends up with my freaking out, crying and feeling horrendous, whereas before we could usually talk it through.

    I don't really have anyone to vent to -- so I was wondering if anyone else here can relate and maybe has some suggestions/strategies to cope and be a kinder, gentler pg wife.

    Thanks so much in advance and enjoy the holiday weekend.

  2. I didn't have that experience, but I'm sorry to hear you're going through that. I don't know how far along you are, but I do believe there is an adjustment period to getting used to the idea of twins. Maybe it will pass, or maybe you can fnd a professional to talk to. I do think it's important to cater to your marriage, this is the last time for a long time that it will be just you and your spouse.

    Good luck.

  3. I went through the same thing. It's the hormones.....the effects are uncontrollable. I would be in a good mood in the morning and by the time DH comes home from work I'm screaming and yelling at him b/c something irritated me. It didn't change for me until a few months after I gave birth. GL!

  4. Yep, I'm in hormone hell (or I should say my DH is!) I get angry over little things, and even when I know I'm being awful I just can't seem to snap out of it. I'm taking a lot of progesterone and estrogen, so I'm hoping that's it. I'm on a high today b/c we just found out it's twins, but I know the hormones will once again take over. I feel bad for DH, but I guess that's his burden during this long process! Best of luck for a more even kiel!
