Post subject: Ranting and raving? What's your story?
Following on from DawnB's infamous dream and craving topics, I wondered if anyone like me was having pregnancy rants because of the hormonal moodswings? I am having some crackers!
Was in B&Q this afternoon getting paint for bubba's room amongst other heavy things and even though I have a pretty hefty bump and was on my own, the guy at the checkout and 3 men in the queue let me struggle out of the door trying to carry my wares with difficulty and didn't offer any help. I ended up getting so angry I dropped everything at the door and had a tantrum about men being ignorant pigs and did we still live in the dark ages etc etc etc.......oops!

Post subject: wild ranting !
Ha Ha ! I hope they helped you in the end ! I do feel sorry for men sometimes though.....they don't know if they are doing the right thing or insulting you by trying to offer 'manly' help !!!. I have got 2 weeks and 3 days to go and i have got the worst cold and chest infection in the world. I have given in and taken paracetomol as i have also got a temperature. I started crying before because i could not tidy up the living room and my duvet was too heavy to carry down the stairs. I was feeling really pathetic and useless. My husband gave me a big cuddle and told me off for trying to do anything and i started crying hysterically in his arms about how fat and useless i felt - then i randomly stated that i smelt of ROTTEN CABBAGE!!!!!!!!! all whilst crying hysterically - my husband was laughing madly at my mad outburst as i have not been hormonal at all during my pregnancy !!!!!!!. It did'nt help at the time that he was laughing at me while i was crying but when i calmed doen i did have a giggle at how bizare my little outburst was !!!!!

lol,i rant and rave on a daily basis and if its true what they say about the baby feeling how im feeling then im gonna have the worlds most stressed out baby!!!
I cant put my finger on one particular thing as yet but as im only 19 wks gone i guess i have time to work on it!!
I just find that i can be fine one minute then all it takes is for something small to go wrong like spilling a drink or knocking my foot on something and OH MY GOD the whole world is going to end and everyone else in the house is in the wrong!! (apart from me) once i come back down off my power trip and normal service resumes im left feeling rather stupid and all my daughter and partner can say is...'dont worry, were used to it!'

Post subject: First rant.. deserved or not?
I had my first rant today! I was walking the dog and noticed that a motorway maintenance van had parked on the pavement so that I had to clamber awkwardly past it on the steep and muddy verge - or walk in the road and get hit by a car! As dog & I struggled past I glanced into the van and noticed the T@~t inside reading pornography. I went MENTAL at him, kicked his van and shouted "If you're going to look at porn could you at least not park on the pavement you F**£%ng pervert loser!" He looked scared and opened his mouth to answer back but then two hikers appeared and through their tears of laughter backed me up! After the dream I had last night I was feeling a bit cross today anyway and even if I did overreact a tad I feel he deserved it!
God help anyone who crosses a pregnant lady!
