Overly emotional

I'm 24 weeks pregnant with my 5th and so far this has been my hardest emotionally, physically I feel really good.
I tend to be a sensitive person even when I'm not pregnant but this is just getting ridiculous, my feelings are hurt so easily I cry pretty much everyday and wake up at night a couple times a week to cry, the main things that I'm getting upset about I feel like are real but I'm just getting to worked up about things I cannot change.

Has anyone else been through this? Any ideas on how to calm these hormones? I would love any ideas of something natural I could take or do.

My Dh helps by listening to me talk about all the things that are annoying. Then I feel better and we typically end up laughing. He somehow makes all the annoying people into funny people.

Re: Overly emotional

I'm sorry you're feeling so emotional, mama . Is it possible you have some kind of hormone imbalance?

The only natural ways I know of to balance hormones is to exercise - even just a little walk around the park, or a few minutes of yoga are a huge help for me.

I read this post b/c I'm also having a tough time this pregnancy. However, this made me laugh! Isn't pregnancy just one big hormonal imbalance???

Thanks for the little giggle in my day!

I was super emotional during my first pregnancy. I distinctly remember watching a toilet paper commercial with a cute puppy and bursting into a hysterical sobbing fit. DH was ready to drop me off at the nut house! Exercise (nothing strenuous), like a short walk around the block would help me fend off the craziness.

Re: Overly emotional

mama. Sometimes it helps me just to have someone listen. I tell DF that I'm having an emotional moment, and he immediately snaps into listen/comfort mode. He acknowledges my feelings, gives me a little (not too strong) sense of perspective, and then does something sweet/silly/funny etc to lighten my mood once I've gotten it all out. Maybe having someone listen and acknowledge how you feel would help you? I hope you find what you need Hormones are icky sometimes.

Re: Overly emotional

I was very emotional this pregnancy t the point or irationality. The Dr. put me on Celexia (anxiety meds) and I am a much better person. Still emotional, but better.
