I am just recovering from a full on sobbing session because the bin bag leaked into the bin so it needed cleaning.

Hormones make us cry over the strangest of things.

Anyone else found themselves a sobbing mess over nothing?

one day last week I was sent to the hospital with concerns over baby's heartbeat (everything fine in the end) and not a tear, I was very calm about it all. the next day I cried my eyes out because a letter from work didn't arrive (wasn't particularly important at all!!) hormones are a bitch!!

DP forgot to bring me a cauliflower. I cried for two hours. Pulled myself together and went to turn on Family Guy - it had started half an hour early so I'd missed an episode. Cue wailing and howling and storming off to bed.

grin Daley

So far i cry at the slightest emotional programmes on tvgrin and have so far cried looking at my big clean washing pile despairing about putting it all away!

That there might not be a kitty heaven.

I was baking at the time and the thought came on pretty much from nowhere but I was hysterical. DP thought I'd gone mental but hugged me until I'd calmed down.

At 14 weeks I had one terrible day of irrational tears. I first cried at the Dolmio pasta sauce advert where the puppets are talking about being a perfect match, then I cried and threw a pillow at the t.v after watching 30 seconds of the show Cheaters, ending the day by crying on the floor in the kitchen because I saw a bird on its own in the garden and for some reason chose to believe that this bird mated for life and was currently a desperate and lonely singleton, which was apparently too tragic for words. grin

Not being able to do things sets me off wailing. I don't mean not being able to do things because I'm pregnant though, one of my first proper meltdowns was because I couldn't fix the washing machine. Quite why my hormones felt that pregnancy should have filled me with plumbing superpowers I have no idea hmm

I had a proper sobbing fit last pregnancy because I wanted cheese on toast.

Except I'm very allergic to cheese grin

Haley and Roy

Looking at my cat, I'm obsessed he's going to die

That hubby put one of the 'for best' t towels out. (Yes I've 100% lost it)

Lilo and Stitch, where Stitch is sad because he doesn't have a family. In hindsight, I actually think that's quite reasonable.

HumphreyCobbler Thu 26-Sep-13 13:02:43

my dh dared to buy salami and I couldn't eat it.

I properly sobbed in the supermarket.

TwoTearsInABucket Thu 26-Sep-13 13:04:53

DH got me pistachio icecream, not pistachio crunch ice cream. I nearly cried but we were in a cafe so I sulked instead. Pistachio crunch is not the same as pistachio, NOT the same. Do you understand DH? Do you??

I went and bought myself another icecream.

sighbynight Thu 26-Sep-13 13:13:28

I cried at a busker singing "puff the magic dragon" one morning. Then at lunchtime, I cried in a restaurant because the soup was so pretty.

I'm not pregnant, I was just premenstrual.

TwoTearsInABucket Thu 26-Sep-13 13:16:42

sigh that's v funny. Tbf I would have done the same thing over the ice cream pregnant or not.

Cocodale Thu 26-Sep-13 13:21:08

I had horrible morning sickness and only vinegar really helped.

Cried when I couldn't buy the avocado that I HAD to eat with my vinagerette, totally irrational !

BummyMummy77 Thu 26-Sep-13 13:21:34

Ok Puff the Magic Dragon has ALWAYS broken me down into a snotty mess even pre-pregnancy. You've got to be one hard bastard to withstand that.

And that's so weird about Lilo and Stitch. I couldn't sleep 2 nights ago and had some mad craving to watch it. When it got to the bit where Stitch was pointing at the duck family I was inconsolable for at least an hour.

dobedobedo Thu 26-Sep-13 13:25:48

Every single episode of friends and every time I hear a Beyonce song on the radio (no idea about that one).

WhisperMen Thu 26-Sep-13 13:27:34

arf @ "the soup was so pretty"

I feel a bit less mental now grin

NoMoreMadCatLady Thu 26-Sep-13 13:28:34

An entire resort running out of a particular type of juice. Because I'd drunk it all smile

Very early in my pregnancy (before I had told work) I cried while at Sainsburys because they didn't have a good selection of bubble baths for me to choose from. When I retold this story to my colleagues their response was "That sounds like something a pregnant person would do!"

TunipTheUnconquerable Thu 26-Sep-13 13:32:30

I used to cry with joy when someone got a good deal for their antiques on 'Dickinson's Real Deal'.

BummyMummy77 Thu 26-Sep-13 13:33:26

I've cried about the lack of bubble bath but that's because I live in the stupid States where THEY DON'T HAVE BUBBLE BATH. Wtf is that about?

NoMoreMadCatLady Thu 26-Sep-13 13:35:06

You know any shower gel would make bubbles in the bath too grin
probably not the right sort

Quodlibet Thu 26-Sep-13 13:40:09

I cried because I couldn't cycle up the hill without stopping and pushing the bike the last bit, and clearly my hard-won physical fitness was fucked and would rapidly disintegrate to nothing and I would be a fat wheezing immobile blob within a matter of weeks.

Turned out I had flat tyres.

I was pregnant last Christmas.

The John Lewis advert, with the snowmen, had me sobbing uncontrollably!
