I need your daft prego stories :)

Hi everyone,

As I'm the first of my friends to have a little one they are insisting I have a baby shower (no thoughts or opinions on baby showers please!) and I thought a fun game would be a true or false on my daft pregnancy things.

For example of my trues;

I cried hysterically that there was no frosties in the house

I had an angry mood swing and tore a pillow apart with my bare hands

OH had to drive to 5 differnt shops at 10pm on a Sunday to get me chocolate nesquick milkshake powder

I cried for an hour when OH was, shall we say, visiting my lady garden with his face, told me I'd missed a hair shaving

My weirdest craving was a cod, beef and onion pasty.

I ate a large dominoes stuff crust to myself, then sat up till 3 am crying, burping, and farting as I was so bloated

So those above are a few of my trues. I was hoping you could share some of your crazy prego moments then I can steal them as my falses (I'm not very imaginative).

Thanks in advanced if anyone does share smile

I stood in the middle of the bakery section of ASDA and cried hysterically because they had no jam donuts. I wasn't even that fussed on jam donuts to begin with.

I threw up outside ALDI at the peak of morning sickness and a man stepped out of his car and right into the puddle.

I sent my OH out, after a long shift at work, to get me McDonalds chicken nuggets at 1am (craving).

I discovered how it feels to piss, shit, throw up and cry all at the same time.

Anyone who asked what I was having was told 'cake'. I convinced a few people that I was actually just fat, not pregnant. Cue horrified looks.

I recently did a burp which lasted 15 seconds.

I cried watching Escape to the Country

I needed Haribo Tangfastics. Sent OH to the shop to get some and he came back with a 10p treat size bag. I was holding a hot kettle in my hand when he returned and he quickly had to explain it was a joke and he had a big bag as well, but apparently the look on my face terrified him.

I felt so naueous when out walking the dog I ended up eating a charcoal dog biscuit.

I pulled over to pee in a layby and ended up flashing a load of truckers.

I cried at postman pat.

I cried because I got the wrong flavour yogurt out the fridge

For the entire second and third trimester, everything I ate was swimming in soy sauce. As a snack I ate soy sauce sandwiches

Cried when I found out my local chip shop was closed for renovations.

Got half way to a shopping centre before realising I hadn't picked up the friend I was supposed to be taking.

And most recently cried whilst ironing (and, urm, cradling...) one of the tiny baby gros going into my hospital bag.

Who have I become??

Balderdabble Fri 11-Jul-14 18:20:50

I cried when my hubby ate breakfast without waiting for me - even though it was because he was letting me have a lie in! smile

Balderdabble Fri 11-Jul-14 18:22:32

Oh and I also full on sobbed in a really important meeting at work and I didn't have a flipping clue why I was crying. Everyone was just bewildered, myself included. That was before I knew I was preggers too.

PilauMice Fri 11-Jul-14 18:25:38

You ironed a babygrow???

bugoven Fri 11-Jul-14 18:50:51

I ate 8 Fab ice lollies in one day instead of lunch and dinner.

The 3-in-1 Ariel pods advert makes me sob, I have to mute the TV and turn away or I'm useless for at least an hour.

I'd really like to name baby Elvis but don't think I can.

Gemoh Fri 11-Jul-14 20:11:19

I cried in the middle of Tesco when I thought they had stopped selling pickled beetroot. Turned out I was in the wrong aisle.

MrsGSR Fri 11-Jul-14 20:22:57

Sobbed to DH for about an hour that our unborn baby might be left handed and I don't know how to write or use scissors left handed so won't be able to teach them.

(I don't/didn't care which hand they write with, I was just very upset that I might not be able to show them how!)

Frizz1986 Fri 11-Jul-14 21:11:12

Made dh get me 3 mcd cheeseburgers

During my early nausea i ate about 6 packs of salt and vinegar squares a day.

I stood on a chair at 7 months pregnant because the ceiling looked weird. It turned out it was damp due to a bathroom leak and i punched a massive hole in it.

I got unexpected diarrhea and actually pooped myself and cried. Bad times! (Thank god i was at home on my way to the bathroom at the time and i was wearing tights)

Gemoh Fri 11-Jul-14 21:29:47

I wear glasses and contacts; the other day my husband asked me how old I was when I started to wear them. I burst into tears! Not sure why. I think I was feeling sorry for my 9 year old self in vile blue plastic frames.

WaffleWiffle - I cried at A Place in the Sun: Winter Sun blush

guitarosauras Fri 11-Jul-14 22:22:12

Rang the midwife in bits because I was vomiting blood and thought I was dying. Turns out I was vomiting tomato soup.

Thought I was wetting myself for 2 weeks but was too embarrassed to tell anyone. Took 2 weeks to realize that it was my waters!

cupcakelover1983 Fri 11-Jul-14 22:24:11

I dropped a glass on the floor and cried because I was too fat to be able to sweep it up. DH ended up coming home from work because I had phoned him in hysterics.

I cried when we had to return the cat we had been cat sitting because I was convinced that she wanted to stay with me.

I climbed up into the attic at 7.5 months pregnant to supervise DH tidying it. I was crawling about on all 4 and managed to give myself spd.

I was food shopping the day before I was due to be induced, when dp said innocently that the next time we're here the baby will be with us. Cue hysterical crying in the bread aisle, I then sat sobbing on a bench for half an hour.

I also cried in the waiting room at an antenatal appt just because another lady was crying and I started to imagine what she might be crying about.

Cried because the cat Sat in the car seat and I wanted ds to be the first one to sit in it, considered buying another one so it wasn't second hand! Thankfully dp put his foot down blush.

MrsWildermac Fri 11-Jul-14 22:36:52

I spilt ribena on the floor and cried hysterically at DH, raging because he hadn't helped me clean up!

DH was in hospital, pretty seriously ill when I was pregnant and I cried at EVERYTHING he normally did - certain lanes he drove in on our every day routes made me cry, I missed the way he buttered his toast etc...

Anjou Fri 11-Jul-14 22:45:37

Onestepbeyond: I cried at Postman Pat

That's brilliant! grin

MrTumblesCrackWhore Fri 11-Jul-14 22:52:40

I cried uncontrollably at the cowardice of dh and my subsequent actions after he failed to kill a mouse half trapped in our trap. He fled the room and I had to crush the mouse under our bin (by sitting and bouncing on the bin- I was huge) to put it out of it's shrieking misery. I was desperate at the thought I had killed a living creature whilst I had one growing inside me, and irrationally questioned the competence of dh as a father given his reaction to a half dead mouse.

I was also sick into the bin in front of my class - they knew I was pregnant before half my family !

I sobbed in front of a crowded tube carriage wailing "if I don't sit down now, I will deliberately give birth in front of all of you. I'm overdue" cue some embarrassed looking city types shuffling around trying to pretend they didn't know.

ScummyWithGin Fri 11-Jul-14 23:33:33

WaffleWiffle I also cried at Escape to the Country!

I cried after having impromtu sex with DH because I was sweaty and we were going to the cinema shorty after. Yes there was time to have a speedy shower, yes the sex was awesome but I was inconsolable!

I've cried a few times today but now can't remember what about-I suppose that's another pregnancy symptom smile

I thougjt the baby was moving, but then shat myself with diaoreah.

I had cramps, thought i was miscarrying, but got diaoreah, was delighted and started a thread about it on mn.

Cried in ikea when the high school graduates were walking round in their sailor type hats (danish tradition) and thought how proud i would be of ds if he got one.
