This evening as we're preparing to make dinner, DS pulled the chair up to the sink to wash his hands. DP made some funny comment about it, I don't even remember what, just something random about DS climbing on things. I started laughing - then crying while laughing - not crying from laughing, just crying and laughing at the same time. : I couldn't stop! I was NEVER like this while pg with DS.

DP is going to go crazy before 9 months are up.

I completely understand. I was watching reruns of Full House this week and bawling. Stupid hormones. Not to mention, my skin is totally freaking out. I've never had great skin but it was under control until this cycle. I'm trying not to curse the hormones too much because they're supporting the bean!

I cried last night while reading a Pocket for Corduroy. It was SO sad/happy that Lisa sewed a pocket onto Corduroy's pants after he'd gone missing looking for a pocket. I am SUCH a hormonal mess!

Oh yeah, the kids books get me every time. DS is obsessed with Horton Hatches The Egg right now. And the storyline is a lot like DP's role with DS in comparison to my ex. So you can imagine how much it makes me tear up when I get to the end of the story....

I finally told my youngest the other day and he has been wanting to "kiss the baby" all the time~~ I'm tearing up right now even thinking about it...
He's been my "baby" for the last 8 yrs and the idea of him being a "big brother" is still absolutely wild to me...

I cried just today twice, watching Stardust at the end when they are both stars in the sky and then listening to Carrie Underwood's new song American Girl lol. It was rediculous!

I wish I was teary. That's a little easier to explain. I'm snappy and irritable. I try so hard not to be impatient, but it just sneaks out. I hate being impatient with dd especially. Dh understands at least. That doesn't excuse it, of course, but at least he knows where it's coming from. Dd is probably wondering where her "real" mommy went. Sometimes I just have to walk into another room and whisper my rant. !@#$&!

I cried this weekend when I thought my husband made me breakfast, but it turned out that he made his own breakfast, and didn't bother making any for me

This is me! I was so sappy with my first pregnancy, but I am not at all this time. I'm crankier and meaner.

I understand! I'm a witch one minute and crying the next. I cried during a mutual fund ad yesterday. DH looked at me and asked "What's wrong." All I could say was "It's just so nice that that lady was nice to the other man." WHAT??!? I don't even remember what the ad was about anymore.

I have noticed a pattern for me, personally. When I am pregnant with a boy, I am irritable and impatient. When I am pregnant with a girl, I am sappy and cry over everything.

OMG. I came in here just to say this same thing. I feel like a jerk and I can't help it!

It doesn't help when people call me out on it either. The one girl at work (who I told about the pregnancy) is being so difficult, that I had to tell her to stop making comments about my mood. I know I'm not the most pleasant person to be around right now, but damnit, stop saying things like, "Do you know you're cranky today?" b/c that srsly drives me up the WALL.

On the other hand, I weep and sob at songs on the radio, commercials on TV, and dramatic TV shows.

Dreams, what does that mean for me?! Please don't tell me that means there's one of each in there!!! :

Oh man, you have some doozies on there. Ready, Set, Don't Go is one of my favorite songs and I've been bawling through it the past few days. I can't get over it. It's just gets me right in the heart! I even have the lyrics on my myspace. Love that Miley Cyrus.

I just cried during an episode of Monk! And my DH thinks something is seriously wrong with me because I think the card I got for my parents is hilarious and he says it's not. I don't know what to say. It's a really funny card.

And what is going on with my face? Really, I'm 28 and my face is this greasy? I feel like I'm 14 again!

I've gotten a break from the face issues thank goodness. As a normal part of my cycle, at almost 27 years old, I still get greasy face and a couple pimples when AF is getting ready to show... so I'll thankfully take a break from that!

My face has actually cleared up in the last week, where the two weeks before it was horrible. With my first pregnancy it was terrible!

My skin is a nightmare. I don't have good skin to begin with but have always been able to keep it clear with ProActiv. Not anymore! I've really been trying to be diligent with my skin care regimin and I think it's finally getting a little bit better. I haven't had issues on my chest/shoulders/back since high school and it's back! UGH. I'll be so glad when I can wean off of this progesterone cream because I think it will really help my skin.

Yeah...that one gets me EVERY.SINGLE.TIME...
it doesn't help that my oldest turns 16 this weekend~~
It is so bizarre to have a child that close to being "grown up" and to be starting all over again with this one~~
I become a complete mess just thinking about me 1st "baby" being old enough to drive...and now i'm crying again... geeeeez....

OMG I cried twice over Sophie's Masterpiece last night. Do NOT check out Sophie's Masterpiece for your child if you're pregnant! OMG. Bawled. And yet, I feel an odd pull to read it again.
