how do I deal with mood swings???

I am almost 7 weeks and I have had bad mood swings. I'm fine then I'm just raging mad. I mean want to scream and punch holes in walls. Then I get so frustrated I cry. My husband doesn't even talk to me or understand I'm trying to controll them but they just happen. He thinks the whole pregnancy thing is no big deal. He has a 3 year old so he says he has done this and just doesn't say anything. This is my first and I'm so excited I read constantly different baby things I just want to do things right. He thinks I'm over exaggerating the whole thing! I have a human life growing inside of me ans he thinks its too early to feel anything! Ugh! It doesn't help my already fragile emotions. I need help!!!

Im 28 weeks tomorrow. My mood swings got better after the first trimester, but they are coming back. My husband just lets me be which helps with it. He knows if I need to be alone for a few, he occupies our son in his room until I can calm down a little. However, he has his days where he doesn't know when to stop and i can't control it.

I've just found out that I'm pregnant. I'm about 6 weeks.
I've been moody and snappy the last couple of weeks and since I've found found out that I'm pregnant all I've wanted to do is sleep cry or kill some one (not really go out and kill).
This is my first pregnancy.
And I've got a heart problem.

I found keeping myself busy, hobbies, reading, etc, helped me a lot, and when I got to the point where I wanted to screammmm, I looked at  baby stuff, thought about my baby and how exciting seeing him/her for the first time would be, and it would cheer me up. There's really no way to stop them, you just have to really try to think about why you're mad, and if it's irrational, just bite your tongue! These hormones are perfectly normal, and it's just getting through them that's the tough part! Congratulations!
