Dear Emotions, Can I Have a Break?

I've always been an emotional person. I'll gladly be the first to admit it. I've always been a bit sensitive, and though I always try to bottle my feelings, in reality, I wear my heart on my sleeve. Well, multiply that times ten, and maybe add a little crack and a red bull...and you've got my emotions on pregnancy hormones.

I had always heard that women get a little crazy and emotional when they're pregnant. I NEVER thought that hormones would make you feel like a total wackjob though. And I never thought how exhausting it could be to have these overly-powerful feelings. The littlest things will set me off in one way or another anymore. Walking past a particularly cute onsie in a store could make me bawl my eyes out...the world's most terrible jokes will make me laugh uncontrollably...a tiny tiff with my hubby could cause me the most insane anxiety ever....My emotions are literally on the world's loopiest roller coaster...and I kind of want off.

Today I'm feeling like I just need a break. I need a break from my emotions and my overly sensitive feelings. I'm tired, I want to cry for no reason, I miss my husband, I miss my family...

I miss my non-pregnant emotions.
