Is Pregnancy Making You Nicer?


pregnancy emotions


I joke a lot about how I was moody and worried when I was pregnant, but it's true that I was (just ask my partner.) Still, I had an uncomplicated pregnancy and I had many, many easy and very happy days, too -- days when I felt grateful and generous towards the world in general.

I just read that the actress Rachel Griffiths, of "Brothers & Sisters" (which, as a total aside, I love), says that pregnancy has made her "nicer." She's preggers with her third kid (big sibs are Banjo and Adelaide) and apparently pregnancy has transformed her entire personality -- she's so much nicer, some members of the cast are begging her not to have the baby!

Hhmmm. What would you say about yourself?

It definitely depends on the day.. Like I was a total witch to my DH this morning because Becka slept like crap and I slept terribly too. It was bad.

I am very at peace a lot though. I love being pregnant, so I think I am definitely a bit nicer. :)

it just depends for me like when my BIL or MIL are around or call I get uber mad and it messes up my whole day other than that i wake up in a happy-go-lucky mood and just stay that way for most of the day

Hubby says that I'm nicer when I'm pregnant or on BC. I don't see any differnce though.

im usually nice (and a pushover) not pregnant. when i was preggo i felt myself more irritable, stronger and assertive. and more and more people got on my nerves with their stupidity. especially when it came to the safety of children.

I'm in a little too much pain to be nice right now, let alone nicer.

I hated my SO for about 95% of my pregnancy. He was even deployed & I told him I never wanted to see him again. I started being nice about 2 weeks before I gave birth & then after Elijah came out I loved him again & started being way nice! I still feel bad every day for the way that I treated him while pregnant.

My hubby always told me I was SOOOO much nicer when I was pregnant. I never knew I was that bad
