tonight my husband told me the funniest story. i laughed so hard that i cried, and then.. no, i didn't pee myself - i started sobbing uncontrollably .. nice job, pregnancy hormones.
Ok...Confession time! - Page 2
last night we rented what to expect when you're expecting, kind of just to humor me. i cried throughout the entire movie. embarrassing if i wasn't hormonal and pregnant..
this morning i had to do laundry while vegan cinnamon rolls were in the oven. i asked if fiance could watch them for me, and make sure they don't get hard, since i don't like hard cinnamon rolls.
i come back up from doing laundry all excited and smelling pastry, and they are as hard as a rock. it took everything i had not to cry. so i ran to the market and got rice dream bars.
he had no idea that i was upset about it, and said "that's my girl" when he saw me eating a chocolate covered ice cream bar at 9am. he's so clueless, but so loving.
etsdtm99- i completely understand.
I have a rather embarrassing confession.. Every time we are out and an ambulance goes by with it's sirens on, I get teary-eyed. I always wonder who's in there, if they'll be ok, how the family's doing, if there will be one devastated family out there in the near future... Or what if that was me/one of my family members.... Etc. So.. Yeah. Lol
Aw, that's not embarrassing! I feel that way even when I'm not pregnant. When we see an ambulance my kids are psyched (as with fire trucks, too) and all I can thinking about is the person inside!
haha kellybeth I sort of want to see that movie too even though I sort of hate that book! But I know I would just be a mess.
I just ate two huge falafel sandwiches for dinner. Homemade and marginally healthier due to being baked, but still. TWO! Craziness.
I can't give up the coffee completely, so every morning I meticulously steam one large mug of almond milk with cinnamon and just a teeeeeny splash of coffee. Helps me feel more like myself I guess.
Every single night, without fail, I wind up entangled with my husband and/or waking him up to tell him to "cuddle with me". SO bizarre because normally I can't stand foreplay or cuddles. My husband is a huge cuddlebug and can't get enough. ;)
I cried the other day while driving. Real tears, too. Another car cut me off and I guess it hurt my feelings?
I can't stand chocolate or sweets right now. This is completely out of character.
I live in pajamas and actually contemplated going to work (I'm a full time nanny) in them. The kids wouldn't mind, right? ;)
Hi, there! I'm mostly a lurker, since I'm due March 1 (I'm active in the March 2013 group), but it's nice to read about people who are "ahead" rather than "behind" me by a few weeks. Especially to see belly shots!
I am actually amazed at how UNcrazy I've been, and how few cravings I've had (except during the 6 weeks of morning sickness). I don't feel I have mommy brain at all, and my mood is very good in general, even though my first/last (very recent) pregnancy was a loss, and I have suffered from mood disorders all my life, to some extent.
I cry at the drop of a hat.
Now, I have always been a crier-- that's not news. But it's soooo easy to squeeze some tears outta me that it's not even funny. And lots of them! The crazy thing is, I don't feel like the emotion I'm feeling is any stronger than usual-- it's just the physical reaction. Like if, pre-pregnancy, I'd watch a touching Nike commercial about girl athletes (don't get me started on the Olympics!!!) and feel a bit touched, and maybe get a teensy bit misty-eyed... Now I see that commercial and feel a bit touched-- but BAWL LIKE A BABY. I feel the same! Or at least I think I do-- but someone else has control over my tear ducts.
Similarly, I've always heard that once you get pregnant/have kids, you can't stand to watch "children in danger" storylines on the news, or in movies/on TV. I have a visceral reaction to exactly that now-- have to change the channel-- but my conscious mind isn't actually horrified or anything. I'm not actually contemplating the child or mother's feelings before I want to peel off all my skin (and I would contemplate their feelings, but I don't even have time to)-- it just instantly triggers a fight or flight response.
It's crazy-- total instinct.
