Can't Stop Crying

(4 Posts)

Hi ladies,

I am currently 15 +6 weeks and I'm starting to feel so down about myself.

I'm finding that I can't stop feeling emotional and just so paranoid about my relationship with my partner. To the point where I've cried about 5 times already today and am starting to feel so down but not 100% sure even why.

My partner is going out tonight down the pub for a few with his friends and I'm now left feeling very anxious and like I'm not good enough.

In sure this is probably just all hormones, but has anyone got any advise?

Thanks in advance.

Being over-emotional is very normal.
Is there any particular reason why you're feeling so insecure?
Anything that your partner has said or done?
If not then the only advice I can give is to keep on reminding yourself that it's the hormones talking and work hard to not allow it to start causing negative behaviour in our relationship or it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Have you told your partner that your are hormonal and emotional and feeling in need of a bit more reassurance than normal?

I was the same a few days ago sad, 15weeks + 2 days and extremely emotional and hormonal but been talking with my partner blush being honest and accepting what you are feeling helps you calm down. It's all part of the pregnancy your body is doing lots of strange stuff for your baby so as soon as I realised it was all for the little one and only temporary changes I started to feel better. You are not alone in this journey and a lot of people are TTC so we are fortunate wink when you feel like crying just let it go then do something you really enjoy, tell to your partner and share your experience. Feel better soon flowers

I am the same at 13 weeks, very little symptoms apart from the emotional stiff. I spent all weekend crying after a tiny argument with partner and it took me about 5 hours digging on allotment to chill out. Then I started up again a few hours later. And last week I watched some TV and cried at almost everything. It was only then I realised it was hormones. Can you spend some time with friends to take your mind off it? Distraction and just speaking to people has helped for me a lot. Try not to be alone if you start spiralling off into an abyss
