I'm crying at everything at the moment. Some are appropriate but I cried at Mo Farrahs mobot on tv this am blush.

SoHHKB Tue 13-Nov-12 09:40:19

I cried at Fern saying goodbye to Strictly on Sunday blush and every time anyone tells me about something sad

Quodlibet Tue 13-Nov-12 09:46:59

I cried 3 times during Marley and Me the other night. By the end was wailing, gulping, sobbing. It is the kind of schmaltzy film that the normal cynical me would not stand for but I was a proper mess.

Novia Tue 13-Nov-12 09:48:11

I cried because my DH wouldn't turn the TV volume down!

iamwhaticallpregnant Tue 13-Nov-12 09:53:29

I cry if my partner does anything at all nice. Last night I cried because he went and got me a KFC.

weeblueberry Tue 13-Nov-12 10:58:40

I cried at week 12 because I went to Sainsburys and they didn't have anything left in the salad bar.

I cried yesterday because my boss got cross at someone else in front of me.

I cried this morning because it was time to get up and I wanted to spend 2 more hours in bed.

God I hope it gets better...

TheBigRazzoo Tue 13-Nov-12 11:03:17

I cried at an episode of Episodes: it's a sitcom. I also tried hard not to cry because someone offered me a seat on the tube.

browniebear Tue 13-Nov-12 11:06:33

The day I came home with DD I cried because oh brought me some chicken soup in a cup when I wanted it in a dish

LibrarianAli Tue 13-Nov-12 11:08:17

I sobbed in Asda (week 6 or so) because they didn't have any Robinsons Lemon Barlet Water. I also had a weep this week (11 wks) because I realised I won't be able to go to Amsterdam on the running club trip and 'Nothing is ever going to be the same agaiiiiiiiin'.

LibrarianAli Tue 13-Nov-12 11:09:02

I also cry whenever I hear 'Never Forget' on the radio - it's the line 'Some day, all of this will all be someone else's dream'. Seems incredibly poignant in my current fragile state!

monkeynumberthree Tue 13-Nov-12 12:11:28

38+2 and I've cried at least once every day for the last week or so. Usually because my very independant 2yo wants to do things for herself and doesn't want any help from mummy sad

But I've also cried because our builder has half-started a job and I don't know if it'll get done before I give birth, and because DH got hot chilli sauce instead of sweet chilli sauce, and also because I stood in dog poo in my wellies. confused

I do not normally cry unless in extreme circumstances!

Oodthunkit Tue 13-Nov-12 12:13:39

Just cried at toddlers cos someone told me about their son being ill when he was a toddler (15 & fine now!)

PragmaticWench Tue 13-Nov-12 15:01:13

I sobbed in the supermarket (and all of the drive home) because they were out of dim-sum.

I cried a shameful amount because DH didn't tell me to stop assembling furniture when I was boiling hot and exhausted - I could have just stopped without being told to obviously, instead of sitting on the floor, wailing 'why didn't you stop me?!'. hmm

I cried myself stupid when DH made me a nice dinner as I'd convinced myself he was only doing it because he no longer loved me and didn't want to tell me.

10storeylovesong Tue 13-Nov-12 15:04:29

I cried this morning when my boss asked me how I felt, because I felt sick and hadn't had enough sleep. So my lovely friend bought me a card and some pressies to cheer me up and I cried again!

MyDaydream Tue 13-Nov-12 15:22:38

I cried a few months back because I just loved my DP so much. He wasn't doing anything, he was just watching TV!

Jenjen85 Tue 13-Nov-12 15:47:35

I had to bite my bottom lip to stop me from crying in the vets on sunday (im only 6wks) as the receptionist was on the phone to a lady telling her that her dog had been hit by a car and had died (god im filling up just typing it now sorry ladies) I had to muster all the strenght to stop the tears rolling down my face. sad

I also had a wobble in Tesco this afternoon looking at christmas cards lol

Oodthunkit Tue 13-Nov-12 15:52:25

I've done that daydream

AmandaCooper Tue 13-Nov-12 16:15:41

Every time DH asked what I wanted for my birthday I impulsively thought "I just want you to take care of me and baby" and on went the waterworks - all round Asda what a state I was in!

dizzy77 Tue 13-Nov-12 16:20:33

This was pretty much my first symptom. I have do far fried twice at Cloudbabies on cBeebies (I am 11w pg w dc2, DS is 18mo). Once when Bubba Green wanted to learn to bounce with the others but had to do his work in the garden - I was about to push DS to the nursery before a day in the office I wasn't really looking forward to and the symbolism was all too much. The other was when thr colour changing cloud they all hang out with got lost during a game of hide and seek and everyone else just thought he was playing. He sung a plaintive little son that is bringing tears to my eyes now!

Onemoreforgoodmeasure Tue 13-Nov-12 17:32:34

Last time I was pg I cried at a window advert. Do you remember the one where the family are all out in the garden playing with a ball or frisby and and it's on a clear path towards the window, Mum's behind it doing the washing up and watching, unable to stop what's going to happen. In slo-mo various family members dive to catch it unsuccessfully, then, super brave and amazing family dog jumps up and just in the nick of time saves the window. Every single time I saw it I just thought "what a brave, sweet, dedicated dog they have"! FFS!

Oodthunkit Tue 13-Nov-12 17:36:42


In my last pregnancy I laughed so much I sobbed because I couldn't believe something was so funny not that anyone else even found it funny

Millie2013 Tue 13-Nov-12 18:37:03

On the way home from our 20 week scan (we decided to find out the sex of the baby), I referred to her as "my daughter" and bawled for about 10 minutes. OH thought I was crying because I'd secretly wanted a boy, then he thought I was having some sort of meltdown

Petcat Tue 13-Nov-12 19:40:27

I recently wept in the sea otter bit at the Oceanarium. They were just so cute and seemed to be enjoying life so much.

plonko Tue 13-Nov-12 20:08:16

I cried in marks and spencer at 23 weeks because I didn't like any of their pyjamas (too short, and I'm only 5'6"!! How do tall people ever find comfy clothes?) then an hour later when I had to say goodbye to my mum as we're very close and I won't see her until I'm 34 weeks!

Also...Dumbo :'(

MrsWooster Tue 13-Nov-12 20:12:21

Bloody buggering John Lewis advert, of course and the end of the last Wallender novel (Worried Man, or whatever it's called) - both reading it AND then telling someone else about it today. Don't read it under any circs and if a snowman appears on an advert, turn over.

xmasevebundle Tue 13-Nov-12 20:21:56

I cried today when i saw the christmas coke cola ad sad

liveinazoo Tue 13-Nov-12 20:37:18

when i had my eldest<now 17> mrs doubtfire made me howl-the idea that a dad couldnt see their kids..its meant to be a comedy ffs!

i had to avoid the news with all my pregnancies

the simspons for some reason set me offconfused

im another snowman avoider,and cute kittens


LibrarianAli Thu 15-Nov-12 12:28:41

I've just had a bit of a cry when 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' came on the radio. I've also been very upset about Savita Halappanavar in Ireland, I just feel so sorry for her and her family. Normally the news might make me feel sad but doesn't actually make me cry, but I wept for her and her husband and their baby and everything in the world suddenly feels so much more connected to me and my own little bean.

noblegiraffe Thu 15-Nov-12 12:44:52

I cried at the drop of a hat in my first pregnancy, and continued to be emotionally unstable for about the first year (I think because I was breastfeeding). But this pregnancy I've been fine! A bit narky maybe, but not weepy. My DH is very relieved.

A highlight of my first pregnancy was sobbing uncontrollably for half an hour after an episode of Waterloo Road.

Pretty much anything at the moment sad/happy/funny makes me fill up especially that ruddy snowman in thd John Lewis advert blush

I knew I needed to do a pregnancy test when I found myself getting tearful over an article about a guy who opened the first drycleaning business in Mogadishu. There really wasn't much more to the article than that!

Also watched Beaches last week - that was a mistake...

cheesesavory Thu 15-Nov-12 14:09:06

I cried in a certain well known baby store over choosing a changing mat.

iamwhaticallpregnant Thu 15-Nov-12 15:54:41

Over the last week I have cried, wailed and sobbed uncontrollably to a woman at the job centre, a woman on the phone from the National Insurance office and my dad - as well as my partner. I keep on having to say "Im.... so.....so....sorry....Im...... pregnant". I used to be a professional hard faced cow.

wilderumpus Thu 15-Nov-12 16:05:21

I just cried over this thread confused

particularly the poster who cried because their DH made them dinner and so she thought he mustn't love her any more... am going through a particularly hormonal patch and am convinced everyone (particularly DH) hates me and will leave me... and so ANYONE being nice (or nasty) to anyone else makes me cry.

a jolly, crappy olly murs song made me cry the other day too. Olly. Murs. blush

Hippolyta20 Thu 15-Nov-12 16:06:25

I cried (alot) which then gave me a nose bleed after midwife appointment on Tuesday because so nervous (first baby, 18 week check). Nothing really went wrong but 3 midwifes and me and they were asking questions like "Is my DH the father", "Is he violent towards me" etc. Apparently totally routine but I took it personally and couldn't wait to get home to my (lovely) DH and the puppy.

When I was pregnant with dd2, I cried at work because my printer wasn't working, and how was I going to print my letters?!blush Oh god, I'm so embarrassed just thinking about it!

iamwhaticallpregnant Thu 15-Nov-12 16:19:35

Hippolyta20 I bet that didnt look suspicious - them asking you if your DH hits you and you crying uncontrollably? smile They asked me the same too. Lol. It's terrible isnt it? Bloody hormones. When they told me it was a boy I wailed so much and cried so much my partner looked utterly horrified. I was wailing "Is he normal?! waaaa waaaa".

Hippolyta20 Thu 15-Nov-12 16:30:58

Thank fully main waterworks after appointment! Luckily nosebleed after rather than before or would have looked very dodgy. smile. Glad to know really is a normal question!
Used to be a calm rational person - must be pregnant hmm!

Shaiandbump Thu 15-Nov-12 17:33:32

I cry when I'm tired which is all the bloody time :'(

Nicky1306 Thu 15-Nov-12 18:55:34

Cried last night when dp said he wasn't coming over he had to work late.

Cried again when he messaged me this morning saying he's taking half a days holiday tomorrow so he can take me out for lunch in Camden blush lol

Mummyof3tobe Thu 15-Nov-12 19:19:33

I cried last night because I physically couldn't get my boots on - end of day swollen ankles and 37 week swollen tummy so couldn't bend down. I lay on stairs and sobbed disproportionately!

Szeli Fri 16-Nov-12 11:25:28

I'm crying reading this...making me think of other people crying. Oh dear xx

LadyMaryCrawley Fri 16-Nov-12 17:28:55

I blubbed at work because my shoes were annoying me.

Then my lovely colleague brought me a nice biscuit to cheer me up from the shoe-blubbing incident. Cue more blubbing, and him backing slowly out of my office...

Tashymondo Fri 16-Nov-12 17:38:10

I cried when I thought about the other half saying no to me having a bacon sandwich for breakfast. He did in fact say yes to it lol.

But it is children in need tonight ladies so get those tissues at the ready XxX

P.Sorry I have tears in my eyes at the thought of all the sad images that await us tonight. Boot hoping XxX

Tashymondo Fri 16-Nov-12 17:39:45

Sorry predictive tx should have said boo hooing not boot hoping

sunshinejanuary Fri 16-Nov-12 18:04:55

I'm 40 weeks plus two days and our house is having so much work done me and the toddler are refugees at relatives and DH joins us at weekends. You would think this might make me cry but I've found myself to have coped better than expected!

However, what has made me cry is, but not limited to;

Mumford and Sons song 'I will wait'
My DH sending a text to say he misses me as i convinced myself it was (clearly) really meant for someone he is having an affair with(?!)
My toddler being nice/naughty/breathing
The situation in Syria
Any of those adverts asking for money for children's charities
Sainsburys delivery being late....

I could go on!

elmo1983 Sat 17-Nov-12 12:41:59

same as mrs wooster - been crying at the john lewis ad! Think i would pg or not!

2 weeks ago i was hysterical because local cafe had run out of one type of soup - actually flounced off with tears in my eyes! weirdo!!
