I have just had a great big sob after watching the semi final of the Great British Bake off. Big tears and gasping for breath. Then half way through I started laughing at the stupidity of it all but the tears kept running. I'm not an overly emotional person. I get hormonal just before my period and normally get angry over things, not tearful. I can't believe I just cried over a baking programme! Never experienced this before in any of my other two pregnancies!

Hard as nails for the first two, but had to be sent home from school when 7 months pregnant with DC3 after there was a kids pushing each other incident in the lunch queue when I was on duty! blush
The head rang to see if I was OK. Very embarrassed ...

I cried in the middle of Poundstretcher when i was pregnant with DC1 because i saw baby vests and felt sorry for people who had no choice but to buy them from there.

i don't look down on anyone for where they shop and half of my sons stuff was second hand so i have no idea where this came from, my mum was roaring with laughter!

I found myself crying just now at the fact there was only tuna for my pasta salad not chicken, cue total hysterics until I realised it tasted much better with tuna.
Cried yesterday at a dead snail imagining how its family must feel (even though they don't have families!).

I'm 15 weeks with dc2 and cried on Sunday because dh told me the chicken I was going to cook was out of date. I had to take myself upstairs and hide under the quilt to calm down blush

I was flicking through channels the other day and happened upon the last 5 minutes of the karate kid... 3.5 minutes in and I was sobbing into my nightie. It wasn't even the original.

Think it was Deadly 60 I was watching with DS whilst pregnant with DD. They were showing how vultures fly by paragliding alongside a hand reared vulture in Africa. The scenery was stunning and vulture was amazing! I think he was called Kevin or Kenneth! I was in tears!

Im 33 weeks tomorrow and last night my loving (would do anything for me) partner politely asked me if i could pause my download on sky + for 5min while he just watched the end of his film in the bedroom as it was interfering with the wi fi. I politely said yes n cancelled it then when he left i sat sobbing about how nothing is my own anymore and he pays the sky bill n i cant watch wat i want anymore because i dnt have a job and pay for anything lol

I also did big snotty sobs on his shoulder a few nights ago because lucy beale died on eastenders i was absolutely distraut slavvering and everything in between sobs! Get a grip woman its a soap opera n i dnt even like lucy beale anyway lol

I cried inconsolably watching kickass 2 the other night...to be fair it was at a sad part but it took me the rest of the film to recover

I cried the other day because the dog lost a ball at the park. We had a bucket full of them at home and I always take 2 with me, but that didn't matter in the moment!
