    Default Where are my happy hormones???

    I thought I was supposed to be 'glowing' in the 2nd trimester......I feel like a big lump of ****. I spent a lot of time yesterday lying in bed feeling sorry for myself.....is this normal or am I just being a bit of a sook?

    Oops - in an attempt to cheer myself up I went shopping today. Bad enough that I look like the side of a house, but I also had to hand over a small fortune for maternity work clothes! Now my husband is definitely lacking happy hormones and I am feeling a little bit guilty......oh well, that will pass - at least I won't have to spend hours rummaging through the cupboard to find something to wear!

    No happy hormones here either, i was beginning to think it was just me. I'm tired and can't be bothered to do anything,the house is a tip which is making me worse, i shout at the kids and seem to have totally mislaid my sense of humour. To top it all off i seem to have aged 10 years over the last 4 months, and the final nail is every timei look in the mirror i see my mother looking back at me, i hear her when i open my mouth and i feel all her annoying little traits coming out in me.

    I need a serious night of alcohol and flirtation to boost me self esteem, another 4.5 months of being pregnant approx 12 months of breast feeding..... great only another 16.5months till i can do that....... Maybe i'd better just go and slit my wrists instead....

    I keep getting told I'm "glowing" but no "happy hormones" here yet. And I'm still waiting for the increased energy and sex drive........

    Can I sign up for a bottle or two of those hormones please??
    seriously lacking the "happy" part here after some sad news from friends.
    I actually was thinking last pregnancy that i was suffering from antenatal depression, until i finally got to hold that little bundle in my arms finally,,,,,,,then it all lifted like a huge weight.

    I got my happy hormones in about week 17, not all its cracked up to be though lol!!! I find myself laughing hysterically at the smallest things, and it always happens to me at work and at inappropriate times too(very embarassing!!!!). I hope you feel better soon.
