I have just had a great big sob after watching the semi final of the Great British Bake off. Big tears and gasping for breath. Then half way through I started laughing at the stupidity of it all but the tears kept running. I'm not an overly emotional person. I get hormonal just before my period and normally get angry over things, not tearful. I can't believe I just cried over a baking programme! Never experienced this before in any of my other two pregnancies!

I cried the other day because the dog lost a ball at the park. We had a bucket full of them at home and I always take 2 with me, but that didn't matter in the moment!

I cried inconsolably watching kickass 2 the other night...to be fair it was at a sad part but it took me the rest of the film to recover

Im 33 weeks tomorrow and last night my loving (would do anything for me) partner politely asked me if i could pause my download on sky + for 5min while he just watched the end of his film in the bedroom as it was interfering with the wi fi. I politely said yes n cancelled it then when he left i sat sobbing about how nothing is my own anymore and he pays the sky bill n i cant watch wat i want anymore because i dnt have a job and pay for anything lol

I also did big snotty sobs on his shoulder a few nights ago because lucy beale died on eastenders i was absolutely distraut slavvering and everything in between sobs! Get a grip woman its a soap opera n i dnt even like lucy beale anyway lol

Think it was Deadly 60 I was watching with DS whilst pregnant with DD. They were showing how vultures fly by paragliding alongside a hand reared vulture in Africa. The scenery was stunning and vulture was amazing! I think he was called Kevin or Kenneth! I was in tears!

I was flicking through channels the other day and happened upon the last 5 minutes of the karate kid... 3.5 minutes in and I was sobbing into my nightie. It wasn't even the original.

I cried at Walker, Texas Ranger. Seriously.

I'm 15 weeks with dc2 and cried on Sunday because dh told me the chicken I was going to cook was out of date. I had to take myself upstairs and hide under the quilt to calm down blush

toni1bump Tue 23-Apr-13 18:46:44

I found myself crying just now at the fact there was only tuna for my pasta salad not chicken, cue total hysterics until I realised it tasted much better with tuna.
Cried yesterday at a dead snail imagining how its family must feel (even though they don't have families!).

I cried in the middle of Poundstretcher when i was pregnant with DC1 because i saw baby vests and felt sorry for people who had no choice but to buy them from there.

i don't look down on anyone for where they shop and half of my sons stuff was second hand so i have no idea where this came from, my mum was roaring with laughter!

Hard as nails for the first two, but had to be sent home from school when 7 months pregnant with DC3 after there was a kids pushing each other incident in the lunch queue when I was on duty! blush
The head rang to see if I was OK. Very embarrassed ...

I waddled walked to a nearby cafe to get a coronation chicken sandwich that I had been craving for the entire morning. The guy in front of me ordered a coronation chicken salad roll and whilst his was being made up, I ordered mine..only to be told they had just run out of coronation chicken. I stood, stunned with disappointment for about 30 seconds, then started sobbing. The bloke in front of me hadn't heard me order and asked what was wrong. Poor guy looked properly concerned. All I could do was point a quivering finger at the paper bag he was holding and whimper "I wanted thaaaaaaaaaaaat" like a spoiled toddler.

He literally just handed it to me and backed out of the shop. Poor man blush

DF and I went to see the Hunger Games when I was 8 weeks pregnant. In hindsight, it was a ridiculous idea. The entire premise of children being sacrificed to feed families is just hideous. I sobbed and sobbed. Cried so hard I could hardly breathe. DF kept saying "let's just leave" and me stammering back "no, we're here now, the images are in my head, we may as well see if it ends well or I'll have nightmares for weeks". It didn't end well, of course, and I did have nightmares.

Also sobbed at the Hovis ad. Never before have adverts reduced me to tears. Though now the baby is here I am still ridiculously sentimental and cry at every sad loss of a child.

Ladies, if you're feeling a bit weepy today - do NOT watch the London Marathon!

RedlipsAndSlippers Sun 21-Apr-13 11:49:40

Cried like a baby for an hour watching the last episode of Sparticus, then at the Macmillan advert that came on afterwards. Very nearly cried at work because a customer was a bit rude to another member of staff. Don't know why it bothered me so much, they're always rude!

MrsLianeB Sun 21-Apr-13 11:49:27

I hoovered the stairs at around 13 weeks and the hoover cut out as the filter was full just before the last step so I sat at the top of the stairs crying saying "I just needed to do 1 more step". DH was very supportive shouting at me from the bottom of the stairs saying "what the hell are you crying about?" and "Come downstairs and calm down!".
I cried this morning watching the start of the London Marathon on tele, and at the Hungarian shadow dancers on BGT last week.

Thank you so much ladies for cheering me up I thought I was the only one...

Friday I managed to cry for around 3 hours at work when I couldnt get the computer to behave, then when I found the milk was off back home and lastly howled like a baby when a guy on my bus home squished a bumble bee and i didnt know how his (the bumble bee not the guy) family might survive without him!

CheerfulYank Sun 21-Apr-13 10:19:38

I also cried because of DH's vile farting! It was proper sobbing, with "how could you doooooooo that!" involved.

I recently sat on the bathroom floor and cried until I hyperventilated about all the walls that aren't yet painted in my house. blush

I cried and cried and cried for Boston. sad

And recently a character I didn't even like died on the Walking Dead. I sobbed with my hands over my face like little kids do when they're hurt.

the first 5 mins of disneys tarzan film. i was overdue and thought a disney day would my mood up. silly me, didnt remember that in the first 5 mins of that film a baby gorilla gets eaten by a tiger then that same tiger gies and kills tarzans parents! i can barely remember the rest of the film as i was inconsolable for at least an hour.

Yesterday it was that DH was being polite to a friend who dropped round briefly to return something just as we were supposed to be serving out dinner. I hid in a different room & sobbed because DH wouldn't just tell his best friend to go away... He was at the door for maybe 3 minutes max! hmm

The day before I cried for nearly an hour after DS learnt to climb onto the coffee table, jumped up & down & ran off the edge into my arms. I had to run across the room to catch him. He thought it was hysterical, I burst into tears at the thought of what could've been & how I can't even keep one child safe so how will I cope with 2...! DH clearly thought I'd gone mad when I phoned him at work, barely coherent, to tell him that DS thought it was funny to stand on the coffee table! He's since moved it into a different room so I don't have to worry! Normally I'd be actively encouraging him to learn to climb/get down safely! confused

Jojobump1986 Sat 20-Apr-13 21:35:03

My friend had a baby girl. I'm having a boy. Apparently this is the worst thing that could ever happen. hmm I can't decide whether I'm upset because I wanted us to have boys together or because she's going to get to do all the 'cute' 'girly' things & I'm not. I always wanted 2 boys so I have no idea what I'm so bothered about! I vaguely like the idea of denim skirts & plaits on a toddler but the thought of teenage girls terrifies me! I don't want a girl. So why can't I stop crying?! confused I'm blatantly going to blub when I actually meet this new baby girl! Hopefully I can just pass it off as crazy pregnancy hormones & not admit to my friend that I'm disappointed she had a girl! blush

(Again, I really never wanted a girl! I always, always pictured myself with 2 boys. That's what I'll have. That's a good thing! Ridiculous hormones!)

Miggs28 Sat 20-Apr-13 21:20:07

I cried today - massive body racking sobs because I was dizzy whilst in the shower & decided to sit on the bathroom floor until it subsided, then I tried to get off the floor and couldn't - queue devastation! Luckily DH came home shortly after and picked me up off the floor, I don't think he could quite work out why I was just sat there bawling my eyes out!

I was in Ikea last week and while traipsing though the kids department I burst into tears because one of the nurseries that they have set up in there was so lovely!

BottleRed76 Sat 20-Apr-13 19:34:37

Is there a thread for Pregnant and unreasonably angry at everything??? I think I would have a lot to add to that thread.

I do fill up regularly but it's usually when I'm thinking about my granddad passing away nearly a year to the day that I'm due and this being the first greatgrandchild he won't meet. Always gets me. I was never this bloody sentimental before I got pregnant.
