Melt downs.

I am only about 7-8 weeks pregnant and I am experiencing horrible mood swings. Like to the point where I am crying and yelling at my boyfriend over things that can definitely be handled later. I know mood swings are to be anticipated but I am very concerned that I am going to drive my boyfriend away or even worse, affect my pregnancy somehow.

Also most of our stress seems to happen around the time his 2 y/o son comes up for his visitation with his dad - he is usually here the last 10 days of the month.

I work from home so I get cabin fever pretty often. Unfortunately, even though I work from home, I dont have the luxury of walking away from my workstation to take a nap or shower or anything.

The only med I am on is my prenatal vitamins. I am confident this is all hormonal bc I can handle pretty much anything "normally" but this is outrageous. I feel so out-of-control and I need to find a way to manage it.

Any advice is very welcome. I am trying to avoid the antidepressant route even short term.
