I cry at anything...songs, anything about kids or animals.  Mine yesterday was the song "Same Old Lang Syne".  Such a sad song.  :(

Lately it's been the John Denver & the Muppets Christmas album making me tear up.  I mean, come on, that song "When the River Meets the Sea," how can you not be touched by that?  I would cry at that song while not pregnant too.  Also, the end of Toy Story 3 where Andy gives his toys to Bonnie, and that song in Toy Story 2 "When She Loved Me."  Gets me every time.  I'm sure that I would cry at country music songs too if I had been listening to the radio lately.

I cried at some sappy Christmas-themed commercial last night (have no idea what it was for) and I am Jewish.  Pregnancy + good marketing = christmas spirit by proxy!

I'm definitely with you mamas on this one.

 

We started watching Glee online a few weeks ago, and I cry about 3 times per show.  And sometimes I'm really crying.  It's nuts.

I loved reading all of these responses!! Especially the Disney commercial because I have cried at the same thing!ROTFLMAO.gif

 

I bawled a few weeks ago for like 10 minutes over the fact that I was 1 year behind on putting pictures in an album. When DH said he would help me to try and calm me down. I cried even harder saying I didn't have a book to put them in. dizzy.gif Poor DH, he is so understanding!

I always cry at the Disney commercial, where they open up the pizza box ...

 

This is so bizarre because I am not religious at all, but I cry at Nativity Scenes when I think about the Virgin Mary, riding around, pregnant on her mule and everyone turning her away.

I was watching "The Hangover" the other night, laughing my ass off, and all of a sudden, the laughter turned to sobs, and I was then in the midst of a full-on bawl!  It was the weirdest thing!

 

I was actually thinking to myself "why the hell am I crying?  I'm not even sad!  This is a funny movie!!  Who's body did my brain just get transferred into??  What the hell is going on??"

 

It was one of the strangest experiences I've ever had!

Any and all Christmas carols that have anything to do with baby Jesus, which is most of them. Especially "Mary Did You Know" because the whole song is about this little baby and asking Mary if she knew that her baby was going to grow up and die for her. Reduces me to tears every time, and not just tears, a sobbing snotty mess. I have to pull my car over when I'm driving so I don't wreck.

 

Any episode of "Say Yes to the Dress" because these women are just beautiful and glowing when they find The Dress. And then when they show the wedding footage I cry MORE because they're so happy and starting out their new lives as husband and wife. I don't even want to be married and I bawl!

 

Also, that "Undercover Boss" show because they always do such nice things for the employees and they're all crying and happy and it makes me cry because they're crying.

 

Foster child adoption commercials on the radio. Kay Jeweler's commercials (although I'm sure that more kisses begin with Bud Light than Kay). That coffee commercial where the brother comes home for Christmas and he's been in Africa for ages and his little sister is all grown up and they're drinking coffee together in the kitchen, and then the parents come down and it's this happy family moment.

 

Pretty much any show, commercial, book, story, video, or picture of families being together and happy reduces me to tears. I feel totally insane every time I start crying too, which makes me cry more!

Some of these are worth crying over to me, but some of them really are just funny! I KNOW that I have had my fair share of ridiculous crying, just as I always do, but I can't pinpoint anything ATM. 

 

A lot of mornings, I am in tears or nearly in tears when DH has to leave to go to work. I know, I know. Craziness. Later on, I feel guilty for putting him through stuff like this, but I really need his support for my insane emotions, right?

There is an SPCA commercial on tv that is a cartoon with a guy who gets a job overseas, and the whole time there is this orange cat who looks just like my cat sitting there and then it has to go to the shelter cause the guy doesn't take the cat with him. I didn't just cry, I got so upset I had to leave the room. I was hysterical for about 15 minutes.

This afternoon I picked my almost 12yo son up from the airport. He was returning from a 2w long visit with his father. As I was waiting for him it took everything I had not to sob. I missed him so much but felt like I should be more composed like, you know, everyone else at the airport.

I would have been sobbing! My son turns 12 in January on the 24th! 2 weeks is a long time to be away from one of your kiddos, even a nearly 12 year old who is "big" now.

 

My kids each had a sleep over at different friends' houses a couple of weeks ago (my daughter is 10) and I missed them SO much for that one night. It was so sad! Then I started thinking about what if I never knew them at all and they weren't even my kids, but someone else's and I broke down. When they came home the next day I squeezed them both super hard and then followed them around the house all day long. They both just rolled their eyes at me and told each other how crazy I was. lol

Much to the detriment of my pocketbook I have historically been great about passing on my no longer needed baby clothes. Because I wasn't having another baby. And then I had another baby. etc etc etc. I just got done folding and getting ready the spring/summer outgrown clothes of my youngest daughter to take to consignment.

 

I'm never going to have another baby girl. I'm also the kind of person who doesn't really understand being disappointed with the sex of my developing baby. I figure I get what I get and that's awesome! I don't feel at all upset that I'm pregnant with a little boy, I'm so very excited to learn who he is yet somehow, in the twilight zone of my gestating mind, I'm feeling uncharacteristically sad about no more newborn and infant girls.

On the way home from the vet at 7:30 this morning, still dark out, I don't know if I was crying because my baby kitty was all grown up (yes, we've been TTC for a year, and I have babied the cat and people are constantly accusing me of treating him as a surrogate baby), or because Bruno Mars "Just the Way You Are" was on the radio (not even a genre of music I enjoy), I just started bawling!
