What made you cry today? - Page 3

post #41 of 97

I started crying while reading an extremely sappy bedtime story to my son tonight. I tried to hide it from my husband because I was embarrassed but I couldn't finish reading it, he had to take over ... and then he and I collapsed in laughter at my ridiculousness. In between tears and laughter I gasped out, "I'm pregnant!!" I may never live it down.

I just cried during a cheesy Pampers commercial - the one with a million baby shots and the tag, each baby is a little miracle. Cheeseball!

I cry everytime I see that new Pampers commercial.  

 

And yesterday I was in Target and I asked a sales person for help.  He signed to me that he was hearing impaired and could not help me.  So I cried about him not having his hearing...

 

I want to cry when it's 3:30 am and I have to go to the bathroom for the third time...but I'm too sleepy to cry.

I'm not crying that much more than usual, but I definitely feel way more emotional about things.  We were watching Prime Suspect last night and the episode involved child molestation, and it horrified me in an entirely new way.  I've always thought it was awful, of course, but being pregnant and being aware that I'm about to be a mother just made it even worse.  Not sure how to explain it, but it was like I understood a whole new level of horror.

 

Okay, that makes me seem really dramatic.  I did start crying in the grocery store the other day because I miss beer.

I have not actually cried over this but I kind of want to ... someone gave me some homemade tamales for Christmas and my husband's asshole nephew ate them ALL. I was saving them for our dinner tonight.  Now no dinner, and I didn't even get one bite. What am I going to tell my friend when she asks how they were? I'm so pissed and upset, but I know I'm kind of overreacting due to pg hormones. I think it is also the stress of having my husband's family staying with us this weekend. They stay with us often, like once a month, and I'm just really not able to deal with it right now on top of my all-day m/s. I didn't say anything to the nephew (conflict avoidant/passive aggressive!) but I told my husband his nephew was never welcome in my house again ...

Your not over reacting! She spent A LOT of time to make those. I'm pissed he ate them! Some people ate so freaking rude... :mad:

Last night we were watching reruns of AFV, and there was a section on pregnancy announcements. I was definitely crying over that.

Thanks for the support ... it was quite jaw-droppingly rude. He is like that ...

- a terrible story about daycare provider abuse. i was on the subway when i read it so i didn't actually cry, and really i wanted to scream. it makes me feel so terrified about the idea of having to put my child in daycare, even though it would only be occasional and for a limited amount of time. 

- this video of 2 high school girls covering one of my favorite neko case songs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vindfGQuC-4&feature=colike

Love both of your points.  The missing beer point made me laugh out loud - just because I empathize.  After a long day, I would love to crack open a cold beer and just relax with dinner.

 

And I remember when I was pregnant with my first dd and my mom wouldn't let me watch a certain movie because it was very emotional (The Pianist I think) - she stipulated that things just affect you differently when you're pregnant and/or a parent.  I completely agree.

Oh ya, I wish someone would have stopped me with my first. DH was gone for the weekend so I watched "The Pursuit of Happiness" all alone while 7-8 months pregnant!

I want a glass of wine or good mixed drink. I settled for a homemade Italian soda instead.

I'm sensitive enough when I'm not pregnant, and it's definitely worse when I am.  The big difference is that it makes me sensitive to happy things.

The stupid Titanic 3D trailer has made me cry twice now. I'm totally fine till they show the part with the old couple laying there in each other's arms waiting to die, and then I completely lose it, thinking about all the people who really did die.

Also, I cried at a stupid life insurance comercial the other day. :P

So far I've been pretty good on the crying, but my mom reacted super coldly to the first ultrasound pictures (her response was: "When are you going to tell the rest of the family?  It will make planning much easier".  Seriously.  That was the entire e-mail.)  At first I was just sort of upset, but then I got really really upset and started to cry.  It's her first grandchild and she can't even say something nice about the ultrasound?  I don't expect people to throw confetti or anything, but this is my mother.  So, that sucked.  I'm still crying about it, actually.  (My mom is actually a super sweet woman, she just has a hard time reacting to emotional things.  I'm used to it, but man, this one hurt.)

 

In more happy news, I got really excited at the thought of a chicken pot pie tonight and eating it made me very happy.  So, there's an upside to everything!  orngbiggrin.gif

And moremadder, homemade tamales are definitely worth crying over.  How sad!  (and what a little jerk).

The tears seem to have arrived.  Last night I was sobbing about a few reasonably stressful things (worrying about money, lack of maternity leave), and my husband was very sweetly just patting my head and listening, and then I tried to blow my nose and nothing happened - it was completely stopped up - and I just WAILED "I can't even blow my noooossseeee!!!"

 

woah.

Pennywhistle, sounds like we had the same night!  After I got upset about my mother's reaction it unleashed the beast, so to speak.  All of a sudden money issues, not being able to stay home, worrying about teaching a month after the baby is born, etc., all flooded to the surface.  My husband is generally very helpful, but this time he kept trying to fix things, which was not exactly what needed to happen.

lol pennywhistle - I've been having the pity parties lately, too. My DH is away for 3 weeks and my M/S is all-consuming. I think it's actually starting to make me really depressed. I'm nauseous about 80% of the time and if I'm not on the verge of vomiting, I just feel really weird - lightheaded, weak, tired. I am spending most of my day on the couch and I don't get paid for work I don't do. plus, i'm not accumulating hours towards mat leave which will come back and ding me if I don't get back to work STAT! It's all pretty stressful.

 

I'm just praying for this nausea to pass so I can clear my head and get back on track. Right now, everything feels impossible.

post #58 of 97

MsZelda, I know what you mean, I had pretty bad nausea up till a week and a half or so ago, it didn't go away then just died down a bit. Immediately after that dying down I became completely and utterly exhausted everyday just wanting to lay around and rest A LOT. Hubby doesnt get why I have spent the last 6 weeks taking it easy, I mean really easy, I'm making breakfast, lunch and dinner for the kids but beyond that we've just been having a resting vacation so to speak so the kids are playing together or watching movies since it's waaay too cold to be outside. Oh and my house, yeah well, it's a mess... not cause I don't clean, although that is soooo on the back burner right now, but because during my naps the two youngest root through whatever they can find and make some pretty big messes, blah, I wish they'd just play quietly and not be into EVERYTHING! Oh well, in a couple weeks I'll be back on my feet and feeling better!

 

What made me cry a lot was feeling so lousy in the first few weeks, while being nauseous I felt like I was starving, if I ate, I could only barely eat and when I could eat more I felt like I'd eaten an entire buffet and suffered from very uncomfortable bloat, PLUS I was tired, it was just all around horrible so I wimpered and cried alot to myself.

yes - food is a frustrating thing now. I feel hungry, empty and want something, and it sometimes feels like a good idea while I'm eating but then shortly after I feel awful. The fatigue is very debilitating. It's like I have a chronic disease instead of something happy and natural like being pregnant.
