Today I have cried at everything. This is awful. Cute kid in Safeway? BAWL. Amazing wedding video? BAWL. Tiny tuna’s proposal post? BAWL. And I still have to go and sit through a History class on the holocaust tonight. Lord help me.
Anyone else notice their emotions get worse after the first trimester? I thought it was one of those weird pregnancy symptoms like sore nipples that were supposed to go away (which mine are even MORE sore now in the 2nd trimester) and come back… guess not.

Yep! I freaked my SO out the other day because I was crying, worrying I’d die and the baby would be in his/her crib crying and hungry until he came home and found us. 🙁 I also cried when my students talked about going to Kindergarten.

Yeah, it was surprising to me to cry so easily. And even after pregnancy, I never went back to my “old self.” It just lessened a bit, but I still cry way easier than I did before.

Most of the time I feel fairly normal but through pregnancy there’s been super sensitive days where I just feel like I need to cry so the smallest thing can set it off, but that’s how it’s been for me in each trimester. We had to say goodbye to my grandma the other week before she passed away, which was terribly sad, especially when she was feeling her great granddaughter in my belly who I really wish she could have met, but that I couldn’t cry about it, I just stormed around angry for a week. I have cried since, but it was weird to cry easily and then not cry when something’s actually sad. So I donno….pregnancy makes you crazy.

I never cried at anything and then along came my daughter and my husband and I are just cry monsters.
I cry during Deadliest Catch, Pampers commercials, reading People. You name it, I’ll cry. I saw a kindly looking grandmother at Costco and got misty eyed.

Oooh, watch out for the History class. I’m taking a couple right now too, and we won’t stop watching this video about the Final Solution… I leave that class feeling like vomiting (and not from pregnancy sickness) every day. I actually skipped a couple sessions trying to avoid it, but he just cancelled class those days so I unfortunately didn’t miss anything. 🙁
But as far as crying, I think the fact you’re life will be changing in a big way has something to do with it too… Planning a wedding made me weepy, and that definitely wasn’t hormone related! 🙂

Oh yes. The crying. It’s awful. On Sunday our pastor was talking about Jesus on the cross and walking us through the whole ugly thing and that had me crying, then he told us to picture ourselves as the ones who were beating him and putting him on the cross…BAWL. I almost had to get up and walk out of the service.
I have caught myself crying at stupid songs I have heard a billion and a half times. One night I started crying on the couch and Darling Husband couldn’t figure out what was wrong…neither could I, and I just burst out laughing while I was crying. Go figure. Got to love pregnancy hormones.

I feel the same way. I was always an emotional / sappy person…but I am so much worse than normal.
And yeah…I thought they said the emotions were supposed to even out during the 2nd trimester. Hasn’t happened to me. I am not really upset or anything….but I am really sappy and sensative and SO much makes me cry! My husband just looks at me like I am nuts 🙂

Yup, this is me. I’ve always been pretty emotional, but I’ve learned to control it over the years. Not anymore! For the past couple weeks, I cry at everything. Everything. The other night I started crying because my husband surprised me by emptying the dishwasher, which it was my turn to do.
Oh, and I just watched Up! for the first time last weekend. Talk about floodgates…

Oh gosh. I fear the day I am pregnant. I’m already a pretty emotional person.

@DesireeAnne: I’m with you there! I already cry at silly things really easily. I feel bad for my Darling Husband when I get pregnant!

@DesireeAnne: I’m the same! I cry so easily now that once my hormones get all wacky I can only imagine how bad it’ll be

I was a lot like KatyElle, never really cried or was emotional about anything. It’s a whole different ball game now.

Oh hunnie its natural. Your hormones are going crazy.. not you lol.. (thats what my mom used to tell me when I was all pregnant emotional.) I was the exact same way,and you know whats really sad.. I think I kept some of those hormones my baby is going to be a year in one month. I still cry at commercials, great stories on wb, sweet notes Fiance leaves for me in the morning. I feel like a mess all the time. Not to scare you I mean its not as bad as when I was pregnant, but I think you look at things different after and are more emotional. idk Good luck it will get better I promise.. sorry about the soar nipples.. take a warm bath that always helped me feel better.. and if they are getting chapped get the nook nipple chapstick stuff it works great!!
