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!


The pig did it. He managed to get the sheep to do as he asked and stopped that lovely farmer from looking a fool.

The silence as he closes the gate on the sheep and then everyone just roars their approval.

Toilet paper advert (one with puppies, can't even remember which one).

And a friend of mine has the funniest story:
When she was about 7 months pregnant, she opened the fridge and there was no yogurt there. She then fell to her knees, crying her poor eyes out over the fact that there was no yogurt in the fridge. Just then, her husband came back from the office, found her on the kitchen floor, in floods of tears, eyes puffy and red, the whole nine yards. He immediately thought something was genuinely wrong and was obviously very worried. Through her sobs she managed to blurt out that there was no yogurt in the fridge and how upset this made her. He then proceeded to remind her that neither of them even likes yogurt, and that they never buy yogurt in the first place. grin

I cried because a slow driver pulled over to let me pass on a country lane and then man in the mirror by MJ came on and that really set me off!

I once burst into tears because I had a craving for poppadums, horseradish and cranberry sauce and when I got to the supermarket they had no packs of ready to eat poppadums I burst into great body shaking sobs, someone called the store manager who made a member of staff go to another supermarket 5 mins away to get me some. I really had no idea I wanted them so desperately! DH was very supportive when I got home and pissed himself laughing!

JetSetWilly Thu 18-Apr-13 13:32:19

Six weeks before DS birth we moved into a new house. Had squirrels scuttling about in and out of the loft. DP put that foam stuff in all the homes he could find to stop them getting back in

I cried or weeks over that homeless squirrel family, proper sobbing

Don't worry we've all done it!

JetSetWilly Thu 18-Apr-13 13:32:49

*in all the holes

blueberry that is brilliant customer service, name them!

parisfernandez Thu 18-Apr-13 13:42:21

Im 7 months pregnant at the moment and I can cry on demand. I went to the supermarket and bought a tin of spaghetti and sausages to have whenever I had a craving. Yesterday I went to the cupboard to get them to find that I had bought spaghetti and meatballs instead. The packaging is almost identical so it's an easy mistake to make but i was hysterical and so upset at how stupid I had been. I calmed down and laughed about it but I was so upset over it.

I cry at almost every television programme I watch and if there is sad music in the background I'm off.

Fakebook Thu 18-Apr-13 13:46:45

Oh God, some of these are setting me off...the poor squirrels!

Blueberry, that's so kind of them!

JetSetWilly Thu 18-Apr-13 13:57:43

Please don't set me off again <cries> I used to sob and sob called up friends crying explaining I didn't really know why I was crying etc etc

But arf at man in the mirror

MyNameIsAnAnagram Thu 18-Apr-13 14:11:09

change mats! the sheer choice of them in mothercare set me off when pg with ds.

offonajolly Thu 18-Apr-13 14:16:05

I knocked some papers down the side of a filing cabinet and just wept. It was all too much I just had to leave them and get into bed.

This is a great thread - especially the yoghurt story!!!

Keep em coming!

lollypopsicle Thu 18-Apr-13 14:16:53

A work colleague mentioned yesterday how her 17 yr old daughter (who I have never met) decided to go on the pill even though she wasn't sexually active yet but she planned to sleep with her long term boyfriend in the future. I thought this was such a sensible and mature thing to do that I couldn't stop the tears! blush what a 8 months pregnant loser I am!

Lj8893 Thu 18-Apr-13 14:17:31

I cried at the great british bake off too!!
And I cried earlier at the end of some home makeover programme (I hadn't even watched the whole programme! )

Thurlow Thu 18-Apr-13 14:21:13

I had full blown hysterics, sobbing for about half an hour, because DP hadn't ordered a chest of drawers for the bedroom (we moved house late pregnancy) and I didn't have anywhere to put my clothes. For some reason this just came to a head one day and I was beside myself.

Sod's law that was the moment the midwife turned up for a home visit. She did spend most of the time giving DP hmm looks... <cringes at the memory>

rosiedays Thu 18-Apr-13 14:29:47

I booed when DH cut the grass this weekend. i felt so sorry for the poor daisys!!

Calmisthemantra Thu 18-Apr-13 14:36:45

Having a special night away before baby arrives and had been looking forward to the 4* breakfast for months. It was horrid - bad service, underdone egg, raw bacon. I blubbed

queenebay Thu 18-Apr-13 14:39:00

I cried at a sheep in the field standing separate from the others. All the others had lambs and she didn't. Was so upset that she was probably infertile!

MarvellousYou Thu 18-Apr-13 14:41:25

Most of the Christmas family orientated adverts on tv made me blub this time round. My last pregnancy was during the time John Lewis had that advert with the song 'you're more than a woman to me' where the DH is remembering all the life events. <wails>

polkadotsrock Thu 18-Apr-13 14:51:59

I cried coz DH went to work, for about two hours, after saying he had the day off. The poor bastard was only trying to do the right thing.

Kelly1814 Thu 18-Apr-13 14:52:11

i cannot tell you how much this thread has cheered me up, i have actually guffawed! have been a sobbing mess for much of this week, so thanks all. please do keep them coming!!

i was sobbing at the poor run over (dead) pheasants on the side of the motorway this morning. I have also sobbed at the last episode of the series Revolution, where a character dies and the young lass is crying "don't leave me, everyone leaves me". I was incoherent for at least half an hour at that one!

memphis83 Thu 18-Apr-13 15:03:52

I watched Nanny Mcfee 2 with my mum at the cinema and I cried so much at the end the women cleaning the floors left until I was ready to come out as I was a mess. My mum was laughig as I was begging her to sit back down.

DreamingOfTheMaldives Thu 18-Apr-13 15:29:30

I cried because I had been doing some cleaning and was moaning about dog hair getting EVERYWHERE. I then sat down to have some pudding which I had been saving until after the cleaning and I found a dog hair on my pudding! I burst into tears and was sobbing "the hair even gets in my pudding!" My husband thankfully gave me a cuddle and didn't say a word but waited until after I had stopped crying before laughing at me!

I also starting sobbing in Sainsburys last week - my back was hurting and I was tired so I perched against a vegetable stand. A member of staff asked if I was alright and that was it - bottom lip started going and my eyes filled up - the more she asked me if I was OK, the more I cried! When my husband picked me up, I got in the car and was crying telling me whilst at the same time laughing at myself.

I think being pregnant is sending me slightly nuts!

dinkystinky Thu 18-Apr-13 15:31:55

I sobbed watching bloody Tangled with my kids...

glossyflower Thu 18-Apr-13 16:18:50

I sobbed for hours when some idiot outbid me on the very last second for a baby change unit on eBay.

YummyMummy17 Thu 18-Apr-13 16:25:56

I sobbed my heart out at Britain's got talent last weekend @ Attraction performing their shadow act!

It was amazing! And very moving I loved it.

Generally I cry at anything, if I come home to DH doing all of the house work I shed a tear

DS made me a pic of our family at nursery last week, I burst out crying at the nursery as I was so proud no one knows I'm preg so I'm guessing they were concerned lol

DolomitesDonkey Thu 18-Apr-13 16:26:58

A murderer getting arrested on Taggart.
My husband walking the dogs.

Teaandflapjacks Thu 18-Apr-13 16:29:25

When I first found out I was pregnant, it was too early to tell anyone, and I was doing some Xmas shopping. I was walking about the shopping centre when Cliff Richards 'When a child is born' came on. It's a bloody awful song, but it set me right off - god knows what the other shoppers though (this is in germany too...), wandering about half laughing and crying. I looked proper mental.

Yesterday I thought somebody had taken my shopping trolly when I went to get something - I walked about for 20 minutes back and forth looking for it, getting really worked up and convinced someone had 'stolen' it to take my re-uasble shopping bags. I even went to the checkouts to see and marched about eyeing up everyones trollys. And when i finally found it, where I had left it, I burst into floods of tears... blush

&#8804;cringes at memory>

kissmyshineymetalass Thu 18-Apr-13 16:31:50

I cried because DP farted and the smell was vile

I was watching one of those stupid videos on YouTube where a scary face pops up to frighten you and I cried my eyes out

Fakebook Thu 18-Apr-13 16:44:41

I'm feeling less emotional now, so am seeing the humour in most of these stories apart from the baby elephant! I watched that documentary in a non-pregnant state and still cried sad

<Hahaha> at the murderer getting arrested. How could they?!

HumphreyCobbler Thu 18-Apr-13 16:48:35

I once cried because DH bought salami in the supermarket even though he knew I couldn't eat it. They were tears of pure rage. I told my Mum about him blush.

I also, at about eight months, cried because toddler ds popped his balloon and had a momentary look of shock on his face. The tragedy of it!

raspberryroop Thu 18-Apr-13 16:52:19

Cried in the phone shop as I wanted the shiny silver one and Dh though black one was a better buy. Cried in Band Q as couldn't find classic pooh boarder only Disney.

I cried at Blueberry's story if the lovely shop! blush

CuppaSarah Thu 18-Apr-13 17:00:30

I cried at the Admiral multi car discount TV ad blush. That poor russain doll family just wanted to save money and without thinking twice leapt into the Admiral doll, yet when he came apart you couldn't see them anymore! He spirited them away, I wept at the thought of all those happy dolls naiively leaping into him thinking it was going to be a good experience only to have god knows what happen to them!! Dp hasn't let me forget this.

NorbertDentressangle Thu 18-Apr-13 17:04:03

A car park space in Waitrose that some twat in a 4x4 nipped into when it was quite obvious that I was about to park in it.

His nose in the air attitude whilst ignoring me ranting at him really got to me and I sobbed round Waitrose.

GaryBuseysTeeth Thu 18-Apr-13 17:04:07

This car advert
At first I was crying because his baby grew up so quickly & then I cried because it's bloody stupid to buy a brand new Polo for a student. blush

absentmindeddooooodles Thu 18-Apr-13 17:09:13

At 6 months pg do had to go away for a week. We had a long standing joke (that actually quite pissed me off) that he would never save me his last rolo. When he turne up having treasured his last soggy melted rolo for 6 hours driving and gave it to me.....I swear I was literally inconsolable!! It took me so long to stop sobbing, and it just happens to be in front if about 20 people!!!

gertrudestein Thu 18-Apr-13 17:21:42

I cried in Mothercare because all the maternity clothes were so ugly

cyclecamper Thu 18-Apr-13 17:28:50

I cried a lot, including at the dr, because I thought it was the menopause and I wasn't ready to face that blush.

I cried for about an hour about an advert for a donkey sanctuary. When DH came home all I could babbbble was "those poor wee donkeys"

My sis cried over dropping and smashing a jar of mayonnaise in he middle of tesco.

FortyFacedFuckers Thu 18-Apr-13 17:36:47

At about 8 months pregnant I went to the vending machine in my work for some cheese Doritos only to discover someone had ate the last packet cue hysterical crying, my full team at work trying to be sympathetic whilst thinking I am crazy then me marching round the office looking in bins for empty Doritos packets to find the culprit blush

Pregnant first time round and I had to pull the car over as I spotted a lovely horse in a field and it made me cry so much I couldn't see the road.

The horse wasn't doing owt, just being a horse in a field. I must have passed it in about 3 seconds. I can take or leave horses generally.

bettybyebye Thu 18-Apr-13 17:42:16

At about 6 months pg I ran over a pigeon on the motorway as I was driving into work (stupid thing landed in the lane in front of me, too much traffic for me to move). Checked my car when I got to the office and the dead pigeon was stuck in my grill! I got into the office and started sobbing my heart out, my poor (male) boss didn't know what to do! Two very kind colleagues went and removed it for me, there's no way I'd have been able to do it myself!

Librarina Thu 18-Apr-13 17:51:54

When newly pregnant I cried big, shuddering, snotty sobs in the middle of Adsa because they didn't have any lemon barley water and it was the only thing I wanted and nobody cared.

Now at 33 weeks I have cried today because a group I run for elderly people crocheted me a baby blanket... And I'm supposed to look after them. I cried yesterday because DH bought me alcohol free lager and it was so kind of him. I cried last weekend because I heard Karen Carpenter singing 'Sad Guitar' and I started imaging what I would do if unborn baby had an eating disorder.

Tomorrow I'm supposed to be watching 'Up' with a small friend. I really don't see how I will cope!

Annoyed101 Thu 18-Apr-13 17:52:46

When I was about 7m pregnant I was wondering round telcos with a basket and I thought oh god I'm never going to be able to shop with a basket again. I put my basket down and went home and cried blush

SeriousStuff Thu 18-Apr-13 18:03:01

Oh my gosh ladies! I'm half laughing, half crying here at your stories. Dreaming you had me in fits of laughter but could imagine myself doing the exact same thing! And queene, your sheep story really set me off - eyes were watering in seconds!

So far, I cried when I spilt a bowl of soup on the kitchen floor. I was carrying it to the worktop and let it down before I'd even reached it! I think the sobbing was more because of the disbelief that I'd done something so stupid so how am I going to be able to look after a baby?!

Also, a few weeks ago when I had bad nausea, the only thing I could stomach one day was cheese. Before I knew it, I had eaten a whole block and I felt so guilty about it that it started me off.

Then the following week, we were driving through quite heavy snow and no-one who came towards me would stop or back-up so I kept having to reverse (in quite treacherous conditions). When we finally came to a clearing I had to pull over and just started crying and laughing hysterically. My DH didn't know what to do!

Pollykitten Thu 18-Apr-13 18:03:51

I'm 9 weeks and these are all making me sob like mad. I remember when I was in my early 20s and had to see occupational health to signed off work - I had a series of about 5 deaths in my family, including my father, and I was explaining this all very calmly to the occ health lady - she was about 8 months pregnant and started crying inconsolably because she felt to sorry for me - I ended up comforting her!. My dog has just made me sob more because he is worried about the sobbing and was trying to lick my tears away [endless sobbing loop]

SeriousStuff Thu 18-Apr-13 18:07:41

Libriana don't do it! Before I was pregnant, I started watching Up on a plane. After the first 5 mins (you know the part I mean) I had to switch it off. 6 months later, I managed to watch it at home with DH but was inconsolable, as was DH...

Bunnylion Thu 18-Apr-13 18:16:44

Russell Crowe and Kevin Costner being dads in the new Superman trailer

Which turned into polykittens endless loop of sobbing created by my sweet dog consoling me with a gentle chin resting on my knee.

enormouse Thu 18-Apr-13 18:25:14

Oh God, God loads of things made me cry when I was pregnant. I was inconsolable when I watched the wrong trousers when gromit packed his bag and left home in the rain. It was that evil penguin. My DP thought I had lost it. he was there try to console me by stroking my hair and telling me it was ok because gromit comes back and the penguin ends up stuck in a milk bottle. I think the crying lasted for about half an hour.
Lots more that I can't remember but that stood out. It was weird cos I'm usually pretty tough.

I've posted these before but I'll add them again to ease your pain OP.

I was listening to the radio on the way to work one morning. They were talking about Britain's oldest woman who at 113 had only had one love and he had gone off to fight in the Great War and died. She never lovedd again. Waaaaah!

One of the HVs at work asked for some advice to give to a mum who waned to stop BFing her 2 year old. I cried because it was going to be her last baby and therefore her last time nursing a baby.

Whilst watching DD play a netball match one of the other girls fell over and bloodied her knee. She was very brave and held back her tears. I wept for her instead.

PhieEl06 Thu 18-Apr-13 18:54:00

On Monday I cried uncontrollably as my McDonald's fries that I'd brought from the drive-thru & took home weren't warm when I started to eat them, then cried even more when my boyfriend went & put them in the microwave for me. blush being 6 months pregnant is not an excuse

TunipTheVegedude Thu 18-Apr-13 18:57:39

Enormouse, anyone with a heart would cry at Gromit leaving home.

I used to watch 'Dickinson's Real Deal' and cry every time someone got a good deal on their antiques.

LouiseD29 Thu 18-Apr-13 19:34:48

When I got married last year my wedding shoes went missing at the venue (I had taken them off to dance). They were not expensive or unusual, so I didn't get too upset.

Roll forward to first trimester and I'm watching ''In My Sister's Shoes" and during the scene where Shirley MacLaine gives Toni Colette the shoes she got married in I suddenly BURST into tears, sobbing, "I'll never be able to give my daughter the shoes I got married in!!!" I had no idea then I was actually having a girl and even now it's hardly top of my list of things to worry about!

RigglinJigglin Thu 18-Apr-13 19:40:30

At 8.5 months pregnant i am completly irrational!

DH came home an hour later than expected, he came home and I'd given our tea to the dog - then sobbed that I had no tea, and the dog had eaten his!! (I had pregnant lady rage for the first 45mins of lateness, hence giving tea to the dog!)....

Was a wreck when the dog stood on my foot when I was sorting the washing, rang DH to cry that she was hassling me. Poor dog / DH didn't know what was happening!

enormouse Thu 18-Apr-13 19:43:31

Turnip, it definitely chokes you up but half an hour of weeping and not having the wrong trousers discussed in my presence is pushing it.

Another incident involved me making a lasagne and going back for seconds and finding my partners dog had eaten it. I sobbed heart brokenly for the whole night. Pippa the dog looked ashamed for a week. But making a lasagne from scratch at almost 2 weeks overdue on a temperamental aga (DPs parents) was no mean feat.

SourSweets Thu 18-Apr-13 19:48:25

Because I couldn't figure out how to put up the new clothes horse. The clothes kept falling off, then the horse kept collapsing, then I'd get it up again and manage to hang a few clothes then it would collapse again and all the clothes would be tangled and wet... After sitting on the floor crying hysterically for half sn hour I regained my senses and realised I had it upside down.

RigglinJigglin Thu 18-Apr-13 19:48:44

enormouse - understand that fully, homemade lasagne is sacred in this house..... And it was lasagne that I gave to the dog in my fit of rage... I was gutted!

sparkle101 Thu 18-Apr-13 19:50:20

I am 5mths with dc2 and hormonal wreck through both. I've been in heaving sobs when, having bought a new car couldn't park it straight, despite my best efforts.

When dh dished up the sausage and mash one day his mash looked better than mine.

When the Venezuelan president died even though I'd never heard of him.

When I heard mama on the radio.

Everytime an ambulance or fire engine goes past me in the car.

Emotional wreck!!!!

syl1985 Thu 18-Apr-13 19:57:23

We're going out with the family. I had put some lovely special clothes ready for this evening out.

I had a bath and went to look for my clothes. I totally forgot that I had put them on the bed for when I got out of the bath.

I was looking and looking were they were.

I was so angry on my husband. I seriously thought he had put them somewhere else to hide them from me. Why? No idea?

He was like:
Why would I want to steal your clothes?
Why would I do that?

He found them on the bed.

Ho, sorry, I forgot that I put them there.
I love you darling.

It's our 4th child. He knows by now how forgetful and how logical the mind of a pregnant woman can be.

Fakebook Thu 18-Apr-13 20:05:14

"When the Venezuelan president died even though I'd never heard of him."

Hahahaha, I have tears in my eyes!

I famously cried in a cafe in Sydney at about 8 weeks pregnant and sick as a dog when I wanted a plain simple sandwich and they only had fancy panini type things with basil and pesto. DH watched in amazement as I crumpled in floods of tears saying "I just wanted a cheese and tomato sandwich". He still reminds me of it, 12 years later.

ErrorError Thu 18-Apr-13 20:09:02

My pregnant friend was in buckets of tears over the potential fate of 2 homeless cats left at the place her brother's girlfriend worked. I adopted them. Made her very happy! And me. grin

McPrice Thu 18-Apr-13 20:11:27

oh i did this during my pregnancy all the time! i am one of those people who dont cry as a rule but during pregnancy i was blowing snot bubbles at the oddest things.
* the charity donkey adverts
* any xmas songs
* great british bake off
* chris evans show when they have the kids on in the morning
* running out of teabags
* dh coming home smelling if beer
its only 9 months i had these lunatic outbursts

bean612 Thu 18-Apr-13 20:21:28

On flicking through a copy of Bunny My Honey that I found on a secondhand book stall while on a 'last weekend away before the baby'. I showed it to DH but when I tried to tell him what it was about I just started sobbing. He thought it was hilarious (me, not the book). We bought it, and now when I read it to DD I think what sentimental claptrap grin

memphis83 Thu 18-Apr-13 20:22:24

teenyweenytadpole reminds me at 13 weeks we went to Tenerife and I sobbed as all I wanted was a cheese sandwich. Asked for this it was toast with cheese salad and mayo then topped with a barely cooked egg. So the meltdown started and when dp didn't understand I stormed off saying we clearly shouldn't be together, you don't understand me!

MNBlackpoolandFylde Thu 18-Apr-13 20:27:36

I cried in Asda George because I had bought a skirt that morning in an emergency on the way to work because my trousers were uncomfortable and it had split at the back while at work in a school and a TA had told me blush (up the split so nothing to do with my pregnant weight).

My then dh had dropped me off in the car so I rushed back to the store without the reciept (it was in the car) in my lunch break asking for them to swap it but it had been put in the sale while I had been at work and they had none left. This also meant that they would only give me the sale price back without the receipt and there were no other skirts or trousers anywhere near the sales price.

So I was stood in the store with split skirt on sobbing my heart out at the customer service desk.

I also cried when talking to my boss for no reason in particular.

parabelle Thu 18-Apr-13 20:32:02

Medal ceremonies. Think it was the Commonwealth games (would that be about 9ish years ago?) and I was watching it and every medal ceremony set me off. Didn't even need to be a Brit winning, every country did it for me. Some obscure countries I'd never even heard of and I'd start thinking about how proud the athlete was and how happy his/her family would be and I'd be off. DH used to walk in, hand me the tissues and leave me to it!

Mayanbob Thu 18-Apr-13 20:46:02

Ha! I have been crying today A LOT, but early pregnancy I cried because there were no boiled potatoes at a carvery we went to.

Gerty1002 Thu 18-Apr-13 20:48:08

My nan rang just to see how I was doing... seconds after hanging up I was bawling like a baby at how nice the gesture was. Then I started to laugh at how ridiculous it was, while still sobbing. Poor OH was at a loss...

When I was pregnant with DS2 I cried at the JCB song. Every time I heard it, without fail!

wws Thu 18-Apr-13 20:55:05

I cried when a surprise party was thrown for Mrs Goggins- from Postman Pat! The shamesmile

CaptainKirksNipples Thu 18-Apr-13 20:56:01

I peeled a banana once and put the banana in the bin and was left holding the skin. Inconsolable for a good 10 minutes until dp came home. In his wisdom he made me a cup of tea (after realising nothing was actually wrong!) instead of questioning why I was sooooo upset smile

Zorra Thu 18-Apr-13 20:59:38

Went to a friend's DCs' open evening in a big group. Al the kids were carrying flags of their home countries and they played Michael Jackson's 'we are the world'. I cried, and cried. And cried some more. All my friends moved away to a different table and I stood there for about 20 minutes howling about all the children in the whole world blush

AnotherFineMess Thu 18-Apr-13 21:03:09

The jacket potato man dared to have a day off. But I NEEDED a jacket potato. I sobbed as I stood in the place where his trailer would usually be, tears rolling down my ginormous bump.

MissFredi Thu 18-Apr-13 21:07:55

Going way back in the here but - not pregnant yet, been watching Wallace and Gromit for a fair old time (I'm now 21 so we're talking...YEARS) and Gromit leaving home gets me everytime. I'm welling up NOW thinking about it.

Outside of the house I'm fairly normal, I promiseblush

mrspinkspanx Thu 18-Apr-13 21:18:36

I can't blame pregnancy but I was Breastfeeding at the time so that was my excuse.

I took an injured hedgehog to the RSPCA centre, as it was in the middle of the road outside my house during the day, and obviously been knocked by a car.

I hung about to hear the vets verdict (it was only a baby, and i was hoping it could be saved) the vet came out to say how it's ribs were broken, had a smashed jaw and was missing an eye. I just stood there bawling, and was unable to complete the forms they asked me to complete.

It was put to sleep the next day as too poorly to operate. Poor little mite.

Someone at a pub told a story about a headless chicken named Bob, who lived for six months being fed with a eye dropper down its severed neck. I didn't even feel sad, I just couldn't stop the tears. I was mortified at being such a sap!

Oh dear poor poor little hedge hog! Sniff...

HRMumness Thu 18-Apr-13 21:29:12

I just asked my DH what I cried at when I was pregnant with DD. His response "Everything". The following are particularly shameful excellent examples:

DH found me crying while peeling carrots. When he asked what was wrong I said "I don't know" and continued to sob.

After slaving away on a home-made quiche all day, which was supposed to be for dinner and lunch the next day as we were so skint, I managed to drop it on the floor while turning it around in the oven. It wasn't cooked enough to hold together so it ended up a big eggy mess on the floor. I was inconsolable.

However, my crowning glory, was crying on the escalator in Leicester Square tube as a harpist was playing My Heart Will Go On. I hate Celine Dion. DH was mortified.

My mum works as a carer and one if her colleagues who I had never met sent me a present just before I had DS. It was a pack of wipes and a bottle of baby bath. I was teetering on the edge as I didn't even know the woman, then my mum said "and you know she doesn't have 2 ha'pennies to rub together." I not only burst into tears sobbing "But it's just so nice of her", I also cried for a week every time I saw them! I could still cry now!

Isn't it lovely though how people you dont even know love a baby and send you presents? Having a baby has turned me into a sap

grin at HRmummies DP would've left me there if I'd cried at Celine Dion!

nellyjelly Thu 18-Apr-13 21:48:36

Went to cinema and watched Brokeback Mountain. Sobbed. Couldn't see for tears and made a real show of myself.

elsabel Thu 18-Apr-13 22:05:19

I did the whole crying then hysterically laughing thing, really freaked out my boyfriend! And it was all over a sausage!

Bodicea Thu 18-Apr-13 22:05:33

cried in my car when i heard music from my uni days and realised I will never go clubbing in ibiza again

vvviola Thu 18-Apr-13 22:19:50

Fish pie. Or rather the fact that there was no fish pie left at the supermarket. I called DH from the supermarket & sobbed down the phone. Then I sobbed all the 20 minute walk home (through small town Ireland, so my Mum had already got 5 calls checking on me before I got home), sobbed again when I got home. Burst into tears again 2 weeks later when I was telling a friend the story and laughing at myself.

Also a breastfeeding story: was out with MIL, my parents, DH & DC at a tourist place. I'm dairy and egg free as DD2 who is still bf is allergic. There was nothing at the restaurant buffet that I could eat other than plain chips (which I'd ended up having to have for lunch the previous day for similar reasons). I burst into tears in the middle of the buffet and wailed "I'm not usually a fussy eater, I just want to be able to eat something" blush The manager took pity on me and dispatched a chef to make up a cheese free pizza while I stood in the middle of the restaurant sobbing blushblush

Rowboat Thu 18-Apr-13 22:44:18

UP! When I was 6 weeks with DD, DH and I decided to have an early night and watch the film in bed. After the first 5 minutes I was in full blown sobs. These carried on, steadily, all the way through the film and for a full hour and a half afterwards. At around 1 hour after the film had ended and I was starting to rally a bit, DH asked what was wrong. Big mistake. "Sob..still..the...fil....waaaaaaaaaaa" and set me off again.
This time, I'm only 5 weeks but I've already found myself crying at the most ridiculous things including cbeebies (which wasn't intending to be sad either) blush

cupcakelover1983 Thu 18-Apr-13 22:54:39

We were cat sitting while I was pregnant and when her owner came to pick her up I cried because I was convinced she wanted to stay with me.

Also when I was very heavily pregnant I dropped a glass and was inconsolable because I couldn't bend down to clear it up. I phoned DP who couldn't understand what I was saying through my sobbing and he raced home! Not my finest moment! confused

AuntPittypat Thu 18-Apr-13 22:57:00

When I was a child I once drew a face on an onion and named it Mr Onion. After several weeks Mr Onion was past his best so he had to be thrown away. While pregnant, I couldn't see an onion without starting to cry about abandoning poor Mr Onion, despite it being more than 25 years previous. DP understandably thought I was absolutely bonkers!

Bodicea Thu 18-Apr-13 22:59:11

ooh I forgot. rang husband up in hysterics as someone had thrown my pack of cheese slices out of the work fridge cos i forgot to put my name on it.

FreckledLeopard Thu 18-Apr-13 23:11:39

When pregnant with DD I sobbed at the KitKat advert where the cartoon tortoise is stuck on his back and can't turn over. I was distraught that the poor tortoise was there wriggling endlessly away and still not being able to turn over. In my hormonal state I actually wrote an email complaining to the Advertising Standards Agency about cruelty to cartoon animals. They were quite sympathetic when they replied, clearly not wanting to upset a total loon!

Fern123 Thu 18-Apr-13 23:14:58

When pregnant with my DS I once cried because DH burnt toast and I hated the smell!grin

Tommy Thu 18-Apr-13 23:17:48

DS1 was due at Christmas. DH used to come home from work and find me sobbing in front of the TV - all those adverts they show at that time of year - NSPCC, Samaritans etc. Eventually he gently suggested that I only watched the BBC grin

Preposteroushypothesis Thu 18-Apr-13 23:18:15

When pregnant with DDi cried at everything, I used to call DP at work and he'd be panicked hearing me sobbing down the phone only to discover I had no idea why I was crying but felt like I just had to call him.

This pregnancy, very early on I cried when my mum went home after Christmas, sobbed and sobbed on her shoulder and for a good 30 minutes after she left...I was seeing her again about 3 days later!

I also cry when my DD watches 'lady and the tramp' and darling smacks lady, I'm actually welling up again now thinking about it.

I surprised myself the other day by bursting into tears watching '101 Dalmatians' when pongo and purdita bring all the puppies back safely. DD was very confused

purrpurr Fri 19-Apr-13 02:09:59

I know that I've cried buckets during this pregnancy, but I can't for the life of me remember what for. I was crying so much and so often at one point that I had to apply moisturiser several times a day just to stop my skin peeling off my face in strips - the areas under my eyes were red and sore.

What I can remember is practically every time I've become Hormonally Charged - essentially, very, very angry about something. I find myself cringing on a daily basis about things I ranted about weeks ago. Aaaargh. The image of lots of lovely pregnant ladies crying seems so much more... Benign and wonderful compared with the pregnancy rage I've experienced, I appear to have been breathing fire for months! sad My poor family.

Greige Fri 19-Apr-13 08:50:54

Gizza! Are you me? I came on this thread to post the very same story!

Seven years later I still tear up when I remember that poor elephant. Dp and Dss still laugh at me about it. I was just 2 weeks away from giving birth, tho'

Chocoflump Fri 19-Apr-13 09:24:42

Oh my god, some of these are actually really sad, I'm in floods of tears and I don't even have the excuse of being pregnant! (That I know of!)

I ended up in full blown hysterics at a cafe at the beach because they didn't have any raspberry sauce for the ice cream but DP had already got the ice cream so I was having to eat it but I wanted the sauce! blush

I was in a total state.

I also cried in Tesco because they stopped selling their ham and brie crepes...

amazingmumof6 Fri 19-Apr-13 10:46:31

when pregnant with DS2 I had a bad craving for Chinese from our favourite place ChinaChina, but they weren't open on Mondays.
the next day my husband drove up to Wales for his granny's funeral and I stayed home. He promised to bring me some Chinese for dinner when back.

I couldn't wait till the evening. I called them at 5pm, but the line was busy. I kept on calling them for the next 2 hours while sobbing, cursing and panicking but they just wouldn't pick up.
I even called a special number to find out if there's a problem with the line, I was told the number was no longer in use. I was hysterical and said: "But I really want some lemon chicken and noodles!"

the next day I walked to the shop and to my horror it was boarded up! I was heartbroken, cried some more and was in mourning for weeks.

I sobbed in the car last week because Tesco had run out of kale. Also when I was pg with ds2 I kept bursting in to tears at the music the BBC were using for the Beijing Olympics. Several times a day I would either well up or wail and finally seeing Adrian Chile's face was a relief as it meant the music was ending.

BraveLilBear Fri 19-Apr-13 11:13:49

DP didn't know what to do with me one night when I walked in from work and said 'I'm so so tired'. He then had to pop out for something and my quiet tears turned into floods when I realised I had to manually change the plumbing from washing machine to dishwasher so I could get the planes cleaned. Little did I know he was just topping up the screenwash and he came back, moments later, aghast at was wrong. He later returned with a bottle of lucozade to 'fix' my tiredness!

The ongoing one is probably worse though. Was told a few weeks ago that I'd have to cancel my holiday abroad because I have a slightly low-lying placenta and I'm not allowed to fly. Was distraught at the time, but now, whenever I see a woman in a bikini, I fill up at the thought of my last holiday in the sun (as a non-mum) being cancelled. Everyone thinks I'm insane...

mildred37 Fri 19-Apr-13 11:39:57

I must be a stone cold bitch.....35+5 and I've not had anything like this!

amazingmumof6 Fri 19-Apr-13 11:39:59

bravelil - don't cry! how far are you in your pregnancy?
I had a low lying placenta with my eldest and had 2 extra scans to keep an eye on it.
at 30 weeks I was told it had moved further up, but at no point was I told I can't fly!
And I did fly to Hungary when 33 weeks pg, then back to England a week later, no problem! (needed a gp letter though as does everyone after 32 weeks)

please check that your condition is really that dangerous, and if it isn't an extra scan later might reveal that you can go on holiday! smile

anyway where are all these bikini wearing women? all I can see is raincoats and feece jackets!! grin

Chellonian Fri 19-Apr-13 12:14:30

Worst things? Gazza nearly dieing again weeks ago, even though it's mostly his own stupid fault, because he's upsetting his friends.

The NZ government day before yesterday passing the marriage equality law, first the funny speech by the old duffer, then the clip of everyone singing with joy that it'd passed. OH asked what was up now & I just pointed to laptop & said 'politics'!

BraveLilBear Fri 19-Apr-13 12:28:27

Amazing the mothercare catalogue is the worst! And Daily Mail website (have to check it for work)... and all the holiday adverts on the telly!

Currently 26 weeks. I think it was the shock that did it - was told at scan it'd be fine but then phoned up midwives when was told I'd need a note to do pg yoga - they said they could give me a note but it wouldn't be enough to convince them to 'let me' do it as I would be considered a liability. This led onto other things I shouldn't do, which included flying - as was due to fly at 30 weeks, was told that no-one would give me a fit to fly cert (requested after 28wks by airline) until after another scan (which they won't do til 32/34 because it 'won't have moved til about then') so I'd have to cancel.

It's for a friend's wedding as well.

This led to more tears when DP said he'd only go for three days because he didn't want me being at home all upset without him!

BTW - anyone who watches Up while pregnant is clinically bonkers. I am not a real-life crier as a rule but have cried throughout the whole thing every time I've watched it!

ReikiMummy Fri 19-Apr-13 13:43:51

I cried buckets over....

- No yoghurt that I REALLY wanted for breakfast... (Forgot I ate the last one the day before...!)

- All the way through Les Mis film (perhaps not THAT unusual....)

- The fact that I can't catch this flipping mouse in the kitchen and it ate its way through a Lindt chocolate bunny I couldn't bring myself to eat (and wouldn't let OH eat either) because it was too cute and the bloody mouse ate it...

My OH (bless him) now just knows he just has to give me a hug and let me cry out... at first he'd be really panicked that he'd done something to upset me!

schilke Fri 19-Apr-13 13:50:36

Not pregnant here, but have cried at Obama's speech yesterday, description of a special performance of The Lion King for people with autism(today) and not getting tickets to athletics in July(also today).

I am simply pre-menstrual!

DaleAdam95 Fri 19-Apr-13 14:37:39

Hey smile I'm 7w6d pregnant and two days ago I asked my OH to bring in a cauliflower because I had such a craving. There was nothing in the world I wanted more than some boiled cauliflower. I'd been up at my mum's house and he was in before I got back, and the first thing I said to him when I walked in was "did you get the cauliflower? :D" And with a horrified look on his face he just goes "oh god... I forgot..."

That was me. For about two hours I was in tears, absolutely inconsolable. When I began to pull myself together, I turned on Family Guy at eleven o'clock like I do every night and it had started fifteen minutes early! Well that totally set me right off again and I had to go to bed blush

DaleAdam95 Fri 19-Apr-13 14:48:34

I have another! I'm a student nurse and I love watching all these "real life A&E" programmes on the telly. Was watching one today where there was an 18 year old boy (mine and my boyfriend's age) who just totally reminded me of my boyfriend. He had been on his motorbike and had collided with a truck and broken his spine.

So he was in A&E and him mum was allowed in to see him. He was totally high on painkillers and was SO HAPPY when he saw his mum, going "mummy, mummy!!" and she started crying and he goes "mummy, please don't cancel your holiday!"

That was me. Totally devastated.

ratbagcatbag Fri 19-Apr-13 15:21:34

Purrpurr I was the same, cried loads but can't actually remember why and the rage, I wanted to kill people or sob on them smile

i had to stop listening to radio 4 news on my morning commute when pg as it made me bawl shock i particularly remember being in floods of tears because some cricketers had been fixing matches shock i have zero interest in cricket but i was very worried about the players futures sad grin

HeffalumpTheFlump Fri 19-Apr-13 16:23:44

I will admit hormones may have had a slight effect on me too... For some reason since i've been pregnant my cat has been quite naughty and even though she has been trained since kittenhood not to jump on the kitchen counters, she suddenly started counter surfing. She also started getting under my feet all the time and tripping me up (among a million other naughty things). My DH may have received a phonecall whilst he was at work from a screaming sobbing pregnant woman, wailing about how the cat was trying to kill me by tripping me up and kill the baby with toxoplasmosis! She was definitely doing it on purpose apparently hmm... Totally rational me! blush

Fakebook Fri 19-Apr-13 16:40:57

I'm loving all these stories! Another one from me: today it was Master Chef that nearly set me off. I've never realised how all these contestants on cookery shows are so emotional! They really really want to win and you can tell. I still have a lump in my throat that will probably come out in full force in tonight's final!

ItsOkayItsJustMyBreath Fri 19-Apr-13 18:21:10

Love these! grin not sad now that pg is a thing of the past for me!

I remember being about 8 months and shopping in Boots, one thing I wanted was on the bottom shelf and I couldn't reach down to get it. I cried big old fat tears and got a lot of hmm and confused faces from other shoppers.

I also became quite a bit obsessed with how much trauma DS would face in labour (as if it doesn't happen to everyone and no one remembers it). I actually wrote about it on here blush

flossieraptor Fri 19-Apr-13 19:21:47

A day or so after I found out I was pregnant I went to see It's a Wonderful Life at the cinema on my own. DP wasn't' that much on board back then. I started crying during the opening titles blush and carried on right the way through

10w with DC1.

Went to vair nice, vair expensive sandwich shop for lunch, to buy precisely the right sandwich which was literally the only thing I could keep down during horrendous morning sickness. It included strong cheddar cheese.

Lady picks up what is obviously not cheddar cheese but Emmental. I say "oh I think that's Emmental, I'd like cheddar please." "No, it's definitely cheddar." "It doesn't look like cheddar." "It is, really."

I get back to my desk. It's fucking Emmental. THE WORLD HAS ENDED.

A colleague later told me he knew I was pg that very day because my reaction was so batshit extreme, and his wife was also pg at the time so he was used to spotting the signs of hormone crisis.

Oh blush and my reaction to the shop's head office was so extreme that the CEO sent me his personal mobile number and told me to call him if it ever happened again.

Steffanoid Fri 19-Apr-13 21:05:21

I cried cause i was really really hungry and in my indecisive state I didn't know what I wanted, I'd napped through dinner and OH said he'd go and get me whatever I wanted, I wouldn't let him cause it was about 11 at night, which made me cry even more, ended up eating cold stodgy pasta through tears

emvenables Fri 19-Apr-13 21:47:51

I cried because I was microwaving something with some cling film on the top, and the cling film started to shrink a bit and I suddenly wondered about what it would be like if clingfilm felt pain.

I thought it was just me who burst into tears while pregnant - his thread is a real relief!

I cried at more than one NCT class and it was really embarrassing - I kept on having to explain that I was fine and just to ignore it as I couldn't control it.

JoyceDivision Fri 19-Apr-13 22:34:06

I cried when I was on the pre-labour section of the labour ward. I was feeling really really really sick, then chundered up the most spectacular vom-fest ever seen. Dh held out a little cardboard bowl which only served as a futile minature shield and caused dh to be covered in spew, thespew to deflect back on to me, then as I continued spweing out at great force I covered the bed, curtains and floor. I felt so poorly and in pain because of the contractions I was sobbing my eyes out, and then howling with laughter, all while still chundering up, as dh wasx nearly pissing himself with laughter grin

cwtchontoast Fri 19-Apr-13 23:44:08

Dolly Parton's 9-5 came on the radio and for some reason it made sob. I was in work, in front of customers too haha, how mortifying blush

cerealqueen Sat 20-Apr-13 00:02:36

Dp said he could tune the remote control so the the tv would only show progammes he wanted to watch (joking of course) and I sobbed uncontrollably. It was the first of many crying fests.

poorbuthappy Sat 20-Apr-13 00:09:03

I cried at I, Robot.
Yes in the cinema, I cried a bit.
Then I woke up Dh absolutely sobbing my heart out crying about the poor robots who had been left to rot.
Not my finest moment and every now and again Dh likes to remind me about it in public.

Chocolateporridge Sat 20-Apr-13 11:43:19

I cried walking home from work one day and thinking about how delicious Twix's are! (I had a craving for Twix's smile)

Reenypip Sat 20-Apr-13 17:58:02

My partner putting odd matching pillow cases, bed sheet and duvet cover lol....

beginnings Sat 20-Apr-13 18:34:52

That film Up that someone mentioned upthread. I went to see that with some friends in the cinema, only one of whom knew I'd had a MC three weeks before. We both sobbed from five mins in until the end of the film. Bless her - she also sobbed endlessly when DD finally arrived nearly three years later!

When pg with DD sobbed and sobbed as I thought her bedroom was too small first world problem. "I don't have a proper room for my baby - waiiiilllllll"

DH just sat at the end of our bed looking at me until I'd finished. I think he thought I was going mad. Her bedroom is perfect by the way.

Mawgatron Sat 20-Apr-13 19:27:25

Woke my husband up at about 8 am during the Christmas run up crying because I wasn't going to be able to drink and all my friends would be having more fun than me.

Cried as my DH ate the 'wrong half' of a piece of cake.

Cried on an assistant head teacher at the school I work at because I couldn't get into my classroom over the Easter holidays due to building work that I wasn't aware of.

And I could go on...

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.

JenJen1234567890 Sat 20-Apr-13 19:55:48

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!

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!

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!)

Jojobump1986 Sat 20-Apr-13 23:17:28

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

charlove Sun 21-Apr-13 09:18:22

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.

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.

Hazeydays Sun 21-Apr-13 10:38:36

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!

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.

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!

SeriousStuff Sun 21-Apr-13 12:40:20

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

londonlivvy Sun 21-Apr-13 13:18:24

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.

abigboydidit Sun 21-Apr-13 13:19:29

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

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 ...

peanutMD Sun 21-Apr-13 18:55:53

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!

beth27123 Tue 23-Apr-13 15:59:38

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!).

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

Lmfao!!! Oh god.. I cried at a few of these stories, i will admit!! Emotional wreck atm, havent yet seen Up.. But now i kinda want to 8)!

Some of these are hillarious!!!!

Haylebop12 Tue 23-Apr-13 18:52:10

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

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.

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!

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

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

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!
