Yep. It happened. Aldi only had unsalted saltine crackers, I wanted salted saltines. I completely broke down crying. Luckily it wasn’t that busy and I got over it pretty quick, but still. This gets a little ridiculous sometimes.
What’s your worst emotional moment?

When I was watching Cheaper by the Dozen with my SO and I cried when the dad found the little boy on the train and hugged him. My SO was just like “really?!”. LOL He was so confused!

I don’t think I really started getting emotional until 6 months in, but I cried sometimes when I couldn’t sleep. I was exhausted but whenever I would lie down I’d get terrible cramps in my leg and couldn’t sleep at all. It was awful.

I usually don’t want much to do with our cat (I’m a dog person, DH is a cat person) but a week or two ago I really wanted to cuddle with her so DH picked her up and brought her to me. She ran away about 20 seconds later and I burst into tears. Later that night DH was eating a piece of cheddar cheese and I cried because I thought he was going to eat it all and he wouldn’t give me a bite. So needless to say you’re definitely not alone.

OMG I had a huge breakdown the other day. i was driving through a storm on Friday, in truly awful conditions. A greyhound bus was tailgating me really bad and I was so stressed. I was trying to find a place to safely pull over so I could let him pass me, but he was tailgating me so closely that I couldn’t even slow down to pull over. That went on for nearly 45 minutes and when he finally passed me, I called DH. My nerves were totally shot from being worried about getting into an accident; I broke down crying.

@LpCutiPie: that was so funny… in a “aww, what a sin” kinda way!!
I broke down last weekend when someone gave us a little hand-made sweater dress and tights for the baby. It was the first gift we’ve received and we haven’t bought anything for her yet… just seeing it made it so real, and it was so tiny. I tried to explain to my husband why I started to cry, and then started crying again just trying to explain it, ha ha!
I also lost it watching this video, which a friend who recently had a baby sent me after I mentioned how I couldn’t believe her little one was growing so fast. It’s beautiful!

Let’s see, I sobbed for 15 minutes on Sunday when we got home from a walk. I was feeling awful the whole walk, convinced I was going to throw up on the street and I was just so relieved to be home I sat on the stairs sobbing. My husband asked me “how concerned do I need to be about this right now?” I told him, between sobs, that I was fine but I couldn’t.stop.crying. My second round of tears came last night watching The Biggest Loser (we recorded it) I lost it. I mean, I often cry during that show, but this was crying of epic proportions.
Mostly, when my mood swings the other way, I find it really funny.

Crying on the commuter train worrying that I’ll go into labor when my husband is on a business trip. (So far I haven’t — he gets home tomorrow. ;))

@ladyox: ahhhh, that reminded me that a few weeks ago, one of our new kittens got sick. We took him to the vet and she had to take his temperature (which of course involved having to put a thermometer in his butt!)… he meowed and struggled and I started bawling and could not stop. Part of me was thinking “GET AHOLD OF YOURSELF!!” but I just couldn’t. I cried for the rest of the visit and then for almost TWO HOURS after we got home! Poor husband asked if I was ok a number of times and between sobs I just kept trying to explain that I couldn’t stop. I was worried about the poor little guy, but over two hours of crying? REALLY? Ha ha!
It’s so nice to hear that other people are experiencing these odd emotional breakdowns … it makes them more bearable and less bizarre 🙂
Oh and on another note, everyone who knows about that now says I’m doomed when baby gets sick or needs needles… and they’re probably right. I can’t stand to see a helpless being struggle or be in pain and I can’t help or make it stop. I just assume I’ll do a lot of crying from here on out!

We started to watch E.T. the other night, and my husband had to turn it off for a while after I couldn’t stop crying at the beginning when E.T. gets left behind. I seriously just couldn’t stop the tears.

Well, we can now add having a crying fit at my desk because a meeting got canceled. A meeting I wasn’t even going to so this has zero real effect in my life.
But I cried anyway. Pregnancy is fun!
