Mood swings?

Ok, so I know humans have mood swings a LOT when they're pregnate, but what about horses? My miniature mare Sour is about seven months along and up until the last week or so, she and I have been doing great with her training. No biting, kicking, crowhopping, pinning her ears- nothing. She's even been letting me run my hands down her legs, stand on her right side, and touch her girth and butt which she's NEVER let me do before. Starting last week though, she's been a complete mess. The past Saturday, she kicked at me with no warning at all and grazed my stomache. I corrected her and made her run for a while, and figured she'd learned her lesson. Today though? Today was worse. She kicked at me CONSTANTLY and was over all just very very skittish and moody. I don't know what to do. I've been whapping her on the butt or the back legs with the leadrope whenever she kicks at me, but it isnt working. She even backed up when lunging in order to get close enough to kick one time. Is she just having hormone issues or is there something wrong?
