Are you Emotional or Moody??

My question is: are you emotional, or moody? Do you cry on the cute commercials, or are you easily agitated... or both???

For me, I'm not emotional at all.. in fact I haven't shed a single tear this whole pregnancy! With my first pregnancy i cried a lot, I can remember sitting in my room talking to my husband on the phone crying (a lot) about how "waitresses don't get the appreciation they deserve" lol... funny looking back on it. I was really emotional!!! This time... nope, no crying, not even close. Even sad movies don't make me cry. But I'm moody... oh yes, I am very moody. COULD THIS BE LINKED TO THE FACT THAT MY FIRST PREGNANCY WAS A GIRL, AND THIS ONE IS A BOY??? Anyone have anything similar??

Hmm..I had a boy and I don't remember how I was.  I remember being a little emotional and definitely moody.   I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the gender of the baby.  But, who knows?? :)

I cried a ton with both of boys and I haven't once with this baby. This one is a girl so maybe it is just our hormones!

I'm very moody. I cry at stupid commercials (not just the cute ones), when someone says something mean, or even when I drive past a funeral home. Holy heck! (I pass one every day on the way to work)

I get angry super fast and snap out of it fast. I feel horrible for those around me and I really try to watch, but sometimes stupid slow to catch on people get my goat. I bite the inside of my mouth to cope and it's all torn up right now. I hope this passes soon.

When I was pregnant with my son I cried a lot, and was very emotional and also pissy from time to time.  This time it's exactly the same, but once I heard the hearbeat I've calmed down a lot.  I"m not crying nearly as much as I did in the beginning.  I also cry only at sad things.  I don't usually cry at all.  My moodyness is what make my hubby not want me to ever be pregnant again.

I'm like you...I haven't shed any tears except for the day that I was spotting...and the tears were from sheer terror basically. But other than that I'm a stone! LOL I do get moody...I've been telling DH that he's been annoying me...I've also been annoying him cuz he tells me I'm being a jerk! LOL I bet I am but at the time I don't see it that way!

I've only cried a couple of times this pregnancy, and they were within the last week. I've been moody for the last week as well. I'm figuring it has a lot to do with the fact that I'm just entering second trimester, and my hormones are just capping out before they level off.

I've heard that theory as well. I was an emotional wreck during my first pregnancy. I wish I knew what the sex of the baby was. I have been reading up on it, and there is actually supposed to be some truth to that, but there are also a lot of girls that its the complete opposite.

I'm also starting to look like an ape on my belly, and its getting to be very annoying. (How the heck am I supposed to show off my belly!) That is supposed to be another "boy" indicator, but, it can also go both ways. I guess I'll find out in three weeks!

Ha ha... some of your answers remind me a lot of myself!! Especially Heather's!! I KNOW I am a jerk sometimes, and my hubby annoys me all the time!! Usually I'm a pretty cool chick but I'm a biatch when I get pregnant!! The best thing is, we've already been through this before, and my hubby knows that it will pass...eventually!! He knows now that it's just my hormones.

@ MissmyAngel- I got some hair on my belly with my first pregnancy... not with this one though... not yet at least. But I had a girl... ;)

LOL Heather, sorry I guess I should have been more specific. I'm terrified to shave it off, cause I did a couple of times and it just kept growing right back- except worse :(

MissmyAngel - I know what you mean about the hair, I've always had extra hair and with my first pregnancy my belly and boobs got hairy and that never went away :(  I've also got darker hair so it stands out.  I've gotta shave like every day (and even then it looks like I haven't shaved in a few days), and when pregnant that just drys out my skin SO much.  I use baby oil to help but it's still not fun.  I hate hair, I can't wait till I have saved up enough to get that Lazar hair treatment, I want it gone!

Ugh, so today on my way to work (on top of trying not to throw up), they put on this really sad song and I just start bawling!  I'm SO ready to be back to normal....October seems so far away :(
