I do believe...

...that AF might be showing her face a couple days early! Woohoo! I started spotting this afternoon, so hopefully she doesn't try anything tricky and just gets to flowing! I haven't been this excited to get my period in YEARS.

Question: Does anyone else get into this weird emotional state right before/at the beginning of AF? I'll have regular old mood swings for days before AF shows up, but very often I'll feel absolutely horrible about myself for a little while on CD1 or the day before, and it has nothing to do with TTC. I remember as a teenager I'd get the same feeling. Just like REALLY down, super low self-esteem, almost to the point of feeling guilty, over just anything. Or nothing at all. Is that weird or just normal PMS?

I'd get that too. Once my progesterone fully falls, I feel so much better.

I hope she makes a quick entrance and exit for you. ;)

The day before and day of AF, I usually get VERY cranky. On those days, I get very short with DH and everyone around me. At the same time, I feel really down about myself and where I am in my life. I think what you are going through is pretty normal.

Yes. I would feel "crazy" sometimes. Mostly I felt angry and since TTC, very tearful.

I get cranky but don't really notice it until I've bitten Jason's head off and I've tried on every single thing in my closet only to end up wearing the first thing I put on (after crying for a few minutes of course)
