Pregnancy Hormones suck!!

I really don't remember it being this bad when I was pregnant with DS, but maybe that's because I was emotional and moody already so the increase didn't catch me off guard. But, for the past week, I have just been incredibly emotional and, at times, for no real reason. It's almost like I'm on the brink of depression where I don't want to do anything but stay home and curl up in a blanket and be alone. The most innate things put me in tears and it's hard to stop them. For instance, this morning while I was sitting with my DH at breakfast before going in to our respective offices, we were talking about the origins of coffee cultivation and invasive vs. native species (that's what you get being a scientist married to a geographer/planner, both with extensive environmental backgrounds) and I just started welling up in tears. Not a moving conversation at all, obviously. He asked what was wrong and I have no idea why it happened. The past few days, I've had a lot of insecurities and have had a resurgence of emotions from things that have happened in the past that I had worked through come up again, so I've been dealing with re-working the letting go process (too much drama). I've also been overreacting to certain things, too, and I know it when I do it, but I can't stop it from happening.
Long story short, I'm having a hard time with pregnancy hormone emotional basketcase-itis. Anyone else?
