I am 21 weeks and consider myself a level headed person...but in the last few weeks I noticed that everyday the number of tv programs I can watch is going down and I am not even talking about proper telly ( news, documentaries etc).
I cry watching The Big Bang Theory or Bones or Deal or No Deal
As for charities adverts??? Not allowed to see them without big fat tears....
Am I the only one or are others crying pregnant ladies ???

I was dreadful - cried at everything blush

I think (hope!) it's pretty normal grin

I'm with you!!!! I cry when someone on tv is sad, happy, emotional etc.

Don't get me started on adverts!!! When i first watched the robinsons advert with the dad and son I burst into tears at the end of it i was so "moved" by it!

I am particularly bad with song videos ...what is the proper name??? Music with images are difficult without crying...
As for disney films....smile

I am feeling emotional for you right now! I am in the same boat - normally not too bad. I cannot bear to look at the screen when RSPCA ads are on, I'm scared I will go adopt a hundred puppies and kittens!

Lj the Robinsons advert gets me every time. Me eyes well up with tears like a child whose ice cream just fell on the floor!

At least we know we are not alone! flowers

RSPCA ads and the like are awful. There's one with a 'bad dog' in it that had me in floods of tears, much to DH's amusement. He came over to ask what was wrong and I pointed at the screen going 'dog'!

When I was newly pregnant I cried at a particular camera advert with a wedding at the end as we'd just got married.

I'm a bugger for crying at ads and programmes!

Hopefully it'll stop once baby is here. 39 weeks today! :-)

Sorry to tell you, it doesn't get any better. From being PG and crying at 'Enders, years on I am crying at NSPCC ads, the VW ad (the one where the dad protects his daughter in various ways and sends her off with a new car - I am wobbling typing that), every school assembly, concert, show and I'm already dreading DS1s leavers assembly from primary school as I will be in floods with tears and snot and everything. So much so, even if I talk about it to another parent my voice wobbles.

The only consolation is there are other parents who will do the same. You just have to make sure you sit with them so you don't look/feel a total prat.

I cried at the Cleaveland Show the other day. A personal low point blush

Bejeena Thu 13-Jun-13 11:16:04

Oh yes and certain songs are making me cry too when I hear them on the radio. Eleanor Rigby had me in tears a few months back!

I was also a bit emotional watching Love & Marriage last night as would not be surprised if I was Pauline in 30 years time!!

notsoold Thu 13-Jun-13 11:16:24

Ohforfox....you are so right...I still cry at the nursery rhymes that I used to sing to my children ( and dd is 18)...

I can't watch nature channels either.....

Nellysgirl Thu 13-Jun-13 11:35:59

I Cry watching Jeremy Kyle every day, why can't everyone just get along?!

notsoold Thu 13-Jun-13 13:20:04

Nelly smile

Fobby if it helps I cried with family guy...smile

TinkyPeet Thu 13-Jun-13 13:28:34

Oh it doesn't stop :/ pregnancy turns you into mush - fact.
The other day I was in floods watchin one of ds's completely crap programmes (good luck Charlie)
Infact it turns my hormones into complete mix up, for instance newmum I just imagined a child's face dropping an ice cream on the floor as you said, and actually burst out laughing. Same if I see anyone fall over, can't help it grin

Ikea Gnome advert....... sends me very weepy. sad
RSPCA Advert - have to leave the room.

Did manage NOT to cry at the apprentice last night... although when Jason got shouted back into the board room afterwards and Alan Sugar said "well done on the sale"... I admit... I welled up!!!! Oh dear.....!!!

notsoold Thu 13-Jun-13 15:02:27

Reiki...I did as well...maybe because Jasin looks like a lost boy...

I will be banning music as well as radio!!!

Don't worry it will get better after the baby is born. I am usually a stone hearted cow but I cried at bloody well everything when I was pregnant. It improved after the birth, especially after I stopped EBF.

TinkyPeet Sun 16-Jun-13 21:30:28

Oh for crying out loud!!! (Literally...)
The Caesar dog food advert.....waaaahhhh!!!!

Lentil789 Sun 16-Jun-13 22:13:49

I'm six weeks and already a emotional mess.... This weekend alone I've cried at that bloody Caesar dog advert, blubbed for hours over back to back episodes of extreme makeover, how I met your mother, buffy (I've cried at certain buffy episodes regardless of my hormonal state so this was least worrying) and weirdest of all started crying while watching man vs food.............

Hairspray is on telly now god help me.....

notsoold Sun 16-Jun-13 23:14:21

I cry now watchimg modern family!!! Getting worse!! smile

jacquiemccloy Sun 16-Jun-13 23:26:20

I cry at the end of OBEM when they're passed the babies...it never made me broody before but now I'm expecting I get goose bumps and everything grin

I watched the trooping of the colours on Saturday, and they had a special segment on royal babies as Kate is nearing her due date. There was footage of the Queen and an infant prince Charles, then Charles and a Pregnant Diana, then William and Harry as babies...... Then footage of William and Kate. I blubbed like a mad woman.

I kept thinking, 'They were babies, now they are having a baby! And I was a baby, and now I'm having a baby! And all too soon my baby will have a baby! Wahhhh!'

I must point out that the baby I'm worrying about growing up is still very much in utero, as I am only 15 weeks pregnant! grin
