anyone find they just have no tolerance at all? i find myself outirghtly telling my boss that i think what he's doing is not very clever and i'm being way too blunt with friends - one asked did i think she looked porky and i just said "yeh, you look like you've put on a bit" - i just seem to have lost the ability to play the social game.......... :o( am i a freak or anyone with me on this??

Hi SnuggleMuffin I understand! I went through one really bad week a while ago when I completely lost the ability to bite my tongue. I wouldn't be the most patient person anyway but I was snapping at everyone and telling everyone exactly what I thought! Thankfully that only lasted about a week but I still get the odd day when I'm pretty scary to be around. Don't worry most people understand the hormone thing, just as long as they never actually say it to you!

Pregnancy really messes with the social skills! I told all of my friends in advance of meeting up with them during my "evil" phase that I couldn't control what I said so I was sorry in advance for anything i said to them. I think they all understood. Poor DH got the rough end of the stick though, I didn't let up giving out stink to him about nothing from morning till night, he was so scared of me :o0 It will pass though so don't worry too much about it though cause to be honest there's no way to control it in my experience, your hormones make you blab exactly what your thinking and it's dangerous!

OH and family are used to me, they say i'm just a hyped up version of usual. but yep, zero self control. the other weird thing is that i can no longer chose a present - my rep has alway sbeen for fab and quirky presents (not expensive, just alwayss that bit different and make folk laugh), nowadays they are getting random rubbish like clothes pegs........ :-8
