A very big hug to you. I really recommend you speak to your gynecologist about it. It does happen to many moms and you are not alone. Please understand that its not your fault. Pls go for a check up and keep talking to us and your partner

hey anon, we all go thru mood swings largely because we all are hormonal. try to listen to music, read, watch a nice movie at home, catch up with a friend. treat yourself to some comfort food - food therapy rocks!!! chin up!

hey dear, it is all right to get big mood swings during pregnancy.  let bygone be bygone and from now on eat well... whenever you have negative emotions, touch your belly... yes, there's a tiny little person in there, who is going to be the center of your world in a few months! even when you feel depressed, do not compromise on food... your little one depends on you... and do fill up your phone with some nice happy songs, so you can listen to them when you are down...

What you are experiencing is understandable. It does happen due to Pregnancy hormones. The fact that you are able to recognize and express it is very positive. Can you discuss this with a family member like your husband mother etc and see if the situation can be resolved? You may want to consult with a counselor if things are not settling. Nutrition is important for the baby and additionally a happy mom is also important.
