Pregnancy tears

The only part of pregnancy that I haven't been fond off (other than morning sickness) is the hormone rages! I can deal with fatigue, weight gain, not one thing in your closet to wear and so on but the hormones are crazy.

I cry at the drop of a hat or I should say a drop of a spoon. Last night I was making dinner for hubby and couldn't seem to hold on to anything. I dropped the butter, dropped the lid to the pan but when I dropped the spoon I lost. Literally cried. You should have seen Nate's face....priceless

Sometimes I sit at my computer at work, looking up something or reading something and just cry (maybe because I am scared?).

I have always been sensitive but lately its more. People hurt my feelings easy. Very easy. I often cry when I think someone has offended me.

Last night when I got home from work.....I just took a good 5 minutes and let out a good cry. Just because I thought I needed a cry.

Tuesday, Nate and I were talking nursery plans and I got overwhelmed because nothing had been done...guess what..I cried! (but he really likes my nursery ideas when I cry :))

But this week there has been a lot going on, I wont bore you with all of it, but everyday there seems to be more bad news that hits my plate. So I deserve to cry.

So if you happen to see me out or hear the sadness in my voice, just blame it on the hormones and know that naturally I am not a cry baby!

I know exactly how you feel, I have been the same way. Two days after I had Dalton I cried all day! I couldn't stop, it was insane but I blamed it on post-partum. :) Hang in there, it's all worth it.

Gosh, I know that feeling...I would cry at the silliest things and then cry uncontrollably, and Zach would have no clue what was wrong and he would think it was his fault. It's crazy, but it's just another part of being pregnant!

That's funny but not at all funny at the same time. Pregancy just isn't easy!

Hormones and butterfingers.

Don't expect the emotional roller coaster to end as soon as the baby comes out either. It gets a little worse with sleep deprivation- but at least you'll have a baby to cuddle...

You are doing great!

Oh, I don't blame you at all it is natural from what I hear to be emotional. Don't be hard on yourself girl! Hope the things that you have are mind will ease. Take care!

Hang in there! It will get better!

That never went away for me after having my kids. I STILL cry over stupid things. Ads on TV, TV shows, movies, the news, things on the radio, anything can make me cry these days. I think your empathy as a mother increases a LOT and your hormones are never the same again.

Aww I'm sorry. I know this doesn't help but at least you have pregnancy hormones to blame! I don't but still cry at the drop of a spoon!

I know what the dropsies feel like when you're pregnant. Wait till you can't bend over to pick that spoon up! Just joking! When I was pregnant the last time, I swear I litterally lost part of my brain during pregnancy. I caught our stove on fire 3 times before the pregnancy was up. Don't'll look back in a year and laugh.
