: Try not to get too frustrated with the tantrums, she could also sense the fact that you are anxious and get worse. Also, if you and your wife get to the point where you can't handle the stress of the tantrums, it can even cause problems in your marriage to the point where you start taking it out on eachother.
I completey agree with Elizabeth about Hannah sensing your frustration thus causing even escalated tantrums. Sounds like you have a very bright and perceptive little girl. She may not understand that her mommy is pregnant, but definitely senses something is different. Mommy doesn't feel well, she is more tired than usual, etc. Because she is too young to understand why things are a bit different, she may be using these tantrums to vent her frustration and anxiousness. Our little ones are creatures of habit. Once she gets used to the changes, hopefully things will get a bit easier for all of you. Good luck and congratulations with the pregnancy.
