I am just recovering from a full on sobbing session because the bin bag leaked into the bin so it needed cleaning.

Hormones make us cry over the strangest of things.

Anyone else found themselves a sobbing mess over nothing?

roofio87 Thu 26-Sep-13 12:12:47

one day last week I was sent to the hospital with concerns over baby's heartbeat (everything fine in the end) and not a tear, I was very calm about it all. the next day I cried my eyes out because a letter from work didn't arrive (wasn't particularly important at all!!) hormones are a bitch!!

DaleyBump Thu 26-Sep-13 12:16:45

DP forgot to bring me a cauliflower. I cried for two hours. Pulled myself together and went to turn on Family Guy - it had started half an hour early so I'd missed an episode. Cue wailing and howling and storming off to bed.

grin Daley

So far i cry at the slightest emotional programmes on tvgrin and have so far cried looking at my big clean washing pile despairing about putting it all away!

everythinghippie29 Thu 26-Sep-13 12:43:31

That there might not be a kitty heaven.

I was baking at the time and the thought came on pretty much from nowhere but I was hysterical. DP thought I'd gone mental but hugged me until I'd calmed down.

At 14 weeks I had one terrible day of irrational tears. I first cried at the Dolmio pasta sauce advert where the puppets are talking about being a perfect match, then I cried and threw a pillow at the t.v after watching 30 seconds of the show Cheaters, ending the day by crying on the floor in the kitchen because I saw a bird on its own in the garden and for some reason chose to believe that this bird mated for life and was currently a desperate and lonely singleton, which was apparently too tragic for words. grin

Spacefrog35 Thu 26-Sep-13 12:44:39

Not being able to do things sets me off wailing. I don't mean not being able to do things because I'm pregnant though, one of my first proper meltdowns was because I couldn't fix the washing machine. Quite why my hormones felt that pregnancy should have filled me with plumbing superpowers I have no idea hmm

Haley and Roy

Looking at my cat, I'm obsessed he's going to die

That hubby put one of the 'for best' t towels out. (Yes I've 100% lost it)

BadSeedsAddict Thu 26-Sep-13 13:00:01

Lilo and Stitch, where Stitch is sad because he doesn't have a family. In hindsight, I actually think that's quite reasonable.

HumphreyCobbler Thu 26-Sep-13 13:02:43

my dh dared to buy salami and I couldn't eat it.

I properly sobbed in the supermarket.

TwoTearsInABucket Thu 26-Sep-13 13:04:53

DH got me pistachio icecream, not pistachio crunch ice cream. I nearly cried but we were in a cafe so I sulked instead. Pistachio crunch is not the same as pistachio, NOT the same. Do you understand DH? Do you??

I went and bought myself another icecream.

sighbynight Thu 26-Sep-13 13:13:28

I cried at a busker singing "puff the magic dragon" one morning. Then at lunchtime, I cried in a restaurant because the soup was so pretty.

I'm not pregnant, I was just premenstrual.

TwoTearsInABucket Thu 26-Sep-13 13:16:42

sigh that's v funny. Tbf I would have done the same thing over the ice cream pregnant or not.

Cocodale Thu 26-Sep-13 13:21:08

I had horrible morning sickness and only vinegar really helped.

Cried when I couldn't buy the avocado that I HAD to eat with my vinagerette, totally irrational !

BummyMummy77 Thu 26-Sep-13 13:21:34

Ok Puff the Magic Dragon has ALWAYS broken me down into a snotty mess even pre-pregnancy. You've got to be one hard bastard to withstand that.

And that's so weird about Lilo and Stitch. I couldn't sleep 2 nights ago and had some mad craving to watch it. When it got to the bit where Stitch was pointing at the duck family I was inconsolable for at least an hour.

dobedobedo Thu 26-Sep-13 13:25:48

Every single episode of friends and every time I hear a Beyonce song on the radio (no idea about that one).

WhisperMen Thu 26-Sep-13 13:27:34

arf @ "the soup was so pretty"

I feel a bit less mental now grin

NoMoreMadCatLady Thu 26-Sep-13 13:28:34

An entire resort running out of a particular type of juice. Because I'd drunk it all smile

BummyMummy77 Thu 26-Sep-13 13:30:06

Yankeedoodlenic Thu 26-Sep-13 13:30:29

Very early in my pregnancy (before I had told work) I cried while at Sainsburys because they didn't have a good selection of bubble baths for me to choose from. When I retold this story to my colleagues their response was "That sounds like something a pregnant person would do!"

TunipTheUnconquerable Thu 26-Sep-13 13:32:30

I used to cry with joy when someone got a good deal for their antiques on 'Dickinson's Real Deal'.

BummyMummy77 Thu 26-Sep-13 13:33:26

I've cried about the lack of bubble bath but that's because I live in the stupid States where THEY DON'T HAVE BUBBLE BATH. Wtf is that about?

NoMoreMadCatLady Thu 26-Sep-13 13:35:06

You know any shower gel would make bubbles in the bath too grin
probably not the right sort

Quodlibet Thu 26-Sep-13 13:40:09

I cried because I couldn't cycle up the hill without stopping and pushing the bike the last bit, and clearly my hard-won physical fitness was fucked and would rapidly disintegrate to nothing and I would be a fat wheezing immobile blob within a matter of weeks.

Turned out I had flat tyres.

ILoveCwtches Thu 26-Sep-13 13:41:19

I was pregnant last Christmas.

The John Lewis advert, with the snowmen, had me sobbing uncontrollably!

Yankeedoodlenic Thu 26-Sep-13 13:43:44

BummyMummy77 you live in the States and there is no bubble bath?? Are you sure? I am American and I don't seem to remember a shortage of bubble bath.

Funny thing is I never even really take baths - in fact I don't even really like taking baths so I have NO idea why I got so upset about not being able to find some nice bubble bath... it was just that day I really fancied a bubble bath. I always find them to be disappointing though - you wait for the tub to fill up (it takes ages!) then you get in... then I'm like "ughh now what?!" I get bored after about 3 minutes and usually end up having a shower as I don't feel clean getting out of a bath.

BummyMummy77 Thu 26-Sep-13 13:51:07

I've tried shower gel. It doesn't smell the same. And you have to use half a bottle to get enough bubbles. Then my fajita stings for a week lol.

Madratlady Thu 26-Sep-13 13:53:36

I've ben fairly level headed so far, although in my first trimester it seemed like the end of the world that the lawn hadn't been mowed.

I do well up sometimes looking at an old couple I know, they've been married 64 years and she has had a stroke, can no longer communicate and is bed bound. He visits her every day in the nursing home, holds her hand and talks to her or they watch tv together. He tells all of us staff how amazing she is and how she could do anything she tried her hand at when she was fit and well. I'm getting a bit sniffly just thinking about them.

BummyMummy77 Thu 26-Sep-13 13:55:42

You can get maybe one really cheap option that I wouldn't touch with a barge pole in Rite Aid etc if you look hard and you can get really expensive Jo Malone, Neal's Yard imports from little boutique type shops but you don't have whole shelves of it at a reasonable price. I think it's because you guys just aren't as into taking nice long baths everyday.

When I moved her my friend told me "bring lots of bubble bath and spray deodorant" lol!

Maybe it's just a New England thing.

neolara Thu 26-Sep-13 14:04:57

The Fimbles.

Emilycee Thu 26-Sep-13 14:14:48

I got all tearful listening to classic fm! Muat have been a very emotive piece of music!

And adverts with animals in...

Midwives - the moment when the baby emerges and they hand to the mum - every time!!

And last Christmas day watching The Snowman (Snowdog) and I wasnt pregnant then!!

the other week i was sat in the bath and cried over a sad dog video that id watched earlier. I stopped and got out. Then cried hysterically for an hour cause my hands were pruney. Then i looked in the mirror and my eyes were red and puffy and cried again. DP laughed.. alot!!

TheSlug Thu 26-Sep-13 14:26:25

Before I knew I was pregnant, I cried because ukip won some local elections. During my pregnancy I've also cried because it's not Christmas yet, and because so many people wrote lovely things on the thread about the most helpful thing anyone's done for you when you're home with a newborn. I also just cried at that stooopid Facebook post where the wife tells her adulterous husband to carry her out of the bedroom every morning. Big baby!!

I cried the other night because I REALLY wanted apple crumble confused

ellesabe Thu 26-Sep-13 15:33:31

A bunch of flowers looked a bit sad and droopy.

DH bought the wrong type of shower gel.

Every time Britain's Got Talent was on the tv.

When they caught the Cowboy Builder on Crimewatch.

greentshirt Thu 26-Sep-13 15:41:36

Ive never found bubble bath in america either, just some random bath crystal things that are more soapy than anything!

Lets all send bummymummy a bottle! smile

I cried a couple of weeks ago because we were having a dominos and they rang 30 mins after we ordered to say they didnt have the chicken dippers I was having. This was about an hour after I really should have eaten and it pushed me over the edge!!

MummyLuce Thu 26-Sep-13 15:47:42

My daughter leaving home to go to university. She's one.

BummyMummy77 Thu 26-Sep-13 15:57:34

Greentshirt - phew, thought I was living in Weirdsville!

If Dominos didn't bring me my dippers I wouldn't cry. I'd be at the store with an axe! Dominos don't do the potato wedges OR chicken dippers OR the herb dip over here. I nearly moved back when I found out lol.

HenriettaPye Thu 26-Sep-13 16:07:58

One morning on my way to work I seen a poor badger squashed on the road. His body was a flat bloody mess, yet his head and face looked perfect, like he was just asleep. I was inconsolable and had to pull over and have a good sob about it. I arrived at work with puffy red eyes and mascara down to my chin and all my colleagues asked what was wrong. I started to tell them about what i seen and broke down again and my manager sent me home blush

And there's a video in YouTube about a homeless man singing creep by radio head on a radio station, I couldn't breathe I was crying so much. I phoned DH at work and told him about it and cried down the phone that this man was a wonderful singer and deserves a record deal and some money to buy a house and some food and how the world is such a cruel and unfair place sadsad

Off to google it and probably cry some more...although this time I'm not pregnant!

cravingcake Thu 26-Sep-13 16:55:14

Managed to hold back tears when the lovely pharmacist helped me find the iron supplement i wanted.

I did cry during one of the womens wimbledon matches, dont even know who was playing but she was so happy she'd won (it was one of the early rounds as well).

JanieLovesLuckySocks Thu 26-Sep-13 17:08:05

I cried when we got a new washing machine, I felt sorry for the old one and was worried it would think we didn't love it any more sad poor wee washing machine. Crazy hormonal woman!!!

BummyMummy77 Thu 26-Sep-13 17:17:40

JanieLoves - not weird, I did that when we got a new hoover. I even refused to put the old one in the basement because it just 'wasn't right'.

puggywug81 Thu 26-Sep-13 17:18:31

I cried in work yesterday because I couldn't fit a box in a cupboard, I was full on sobbing a colleague put his arm round me and asked if I wanted a hot chocolate I cried more and told him to piss off and stop being nice to me because it was making me worse. He looked horrified and hurried away! Oops

Unfortunately it doesn't end when you have the baby.

My twins will be one on Sunday and I was in Asda this evening and saw some early baby (up to 6lb) pink vests and I burst into tears! My babies were born at 34 weeks and weighed just over 5lb so would have been in that size vest. I am thinking a lot about my last few days of being pregnant last year and the anniversary of the birth and finding myself very emotional about it confused mad

CheeseAndFriedMushrooms Thu 26-Sep-13 20:47:58

I sobbed cried when pregnant with ds1 as I was too tired one evening to wash my hair. Except it really needed washing. But I physically couldn't get up off the sofa. I think this was the first pregnancy-craziness I had shown, so much so that DH offered to wash my hair for me whilst I sat on the sofa, by bringing bowls of water to me sadgrin

For my second pregnancy, I used lots of dry shampoo.

CarefulUpThere Thu 26-Sep-13 20:49:34

The first sign I was pregnant was when I cried at Cameron Diaz' fluffy jumper in "the holiday".

It was just sooo fluffy...

Film was rubbish, btw!

howstupidcanyoube Thu 26-Sep-13 20:58:20

I was pregnant last Christmas. I did some of the cooking early and wanted to put the food in the freezer. But I just couldn't fit it in. OH came home from work and found me sitting on the floor near the fridge and having a total meltdown and eating ice cream just to free up some space
It took him about 3 minutes to rearrange the stuff in the freezer.

BadSeedsAddict Thu 26-Sep-13 21:29:55

BummyMummy, DH has laughed at me for years over that! That, and the death of a computer-animated pig on Walking with Beasts. Just told him I wasn't the only one and he looked at me like I was a loon grin

BummyMummy77 Thu 26-Sep-13 21:42:39

I think an evil alien who is mourning his lack of a duck family is a perfectly logical thing to cry over.

I just had a melt down because I've spent all day cleaning the fridge (it was VILE as dh has been 'in charge' of keeping it clean and chucking stuff out, needless to say there were a few strange lifeforms starting to take up residence and thick, mouldy goop everywhere) and when put one of the shelves back wrong so everything slid out on to the kitchen floor.

I screamed for help and he didn't hear me so I ran outside sobbing and pelted him with corn on the cob.

Then I cried lots more as I was going to make soup from it tonight so now 'he's ruined dinner'.

DaleyBump Thu 26-Sep-13 21:45:00

I wanted a roast dinner but it wasn't Sunday.

DwellsUndertheSink Thu 26-Sep-13 21:54:22

anyone read Beach music by Pat Conroy.....there is a scene where the dad tells his daughter about the death of "the great dog chippy" - as an allegory of his wife's death.

I was near hysterical with grief for the great dog chippy blush

WhisperMen Fri 27-Sep-13 09:42:38

"I ran outside and pelted him with corn on the cob"

I have just woken DP up laughing at that.

I just had a sobbing session because my socks are blue and I wanted stripey ones, but they're in the wash. hmm

suntodayplease Fri 27-Sep-13 09:49:55

I can't watch the video we took of DD on an empty traditional merry go round on holiday. Makes me really sad to see her going round on her own with all the empty horses and tea cups going up and down and round and round. Wtf?!

Saying that at 38 weeks that's pretty much all I've cried about so I think I'm doing ok.

poorbuthappy Fri 27-Sep-13 09:51:27

I cried at I Robot.
I sobbed for hours when we came home because of those poor robots in the containers. grin

ladylashes Fri 27-Sep-13 10:03:19

I cried in the supermarket as I couldn't decide which pasta and pasta sauce to buy. There were too many options. Pathetic!!! x

BouncingBelly Fri 27-Sep-13 11:41:35

This thread has made me giggle!
I cried in the car early pregnancy listening to Radioheads 'Creep' because he sings about not being special. "I wish I was special, you're so very special, but I'm a creep...." Why isn't he special, WHY DOESNT ANYBODY LOVE HIM?!
Totally bonkers response, snapped out of it when the song finished but I genuinely felt really sorry for him and cried accordingly!

WhisperMen Fri 27-Sep-13 12:07:32

I am so glad I started this thread. It has made me feel like a normal person as it's not just me who cries at things that don't make sense. Aren't hormones great?!

HenriettaPye Fri 27-Sep-13 12:17:45

bouncingbelly watch this if the radio version of 'creep' made you cry.

This is the one i was talking about- the man is homeless and singing this. it absolutely breaks my heart. he sings it like it was wriiten about him. when he sings 'i wish i was special' my eyes well up everytime. and when he sings 'what the hell am i doing here, i dont belong here' and 'i want you to notice when im not around' just kills me sad

off to have a good sob...

BummyMummy77 Fri 27-Sep-13 15:33:51

So we are on a 4 hour car journey (I'm on the edge already) and the other half has run over a dead skunk.

It smells like hell is trapped in the car with us and now the dog had starting drooling everywhere.

I'm posting on here and just grunting at dh trying to avoid having a Jean from Eastenders moment.

WhisperMen Fri 27-Sep-13 18:09:39

oh dear bummy that does not sound good.

BouncingBelly Fri 27-Sep-13 19:41:31

I just wanna take him home and give him a bath... What a talented man :-)

(no tears though, sorry to disappoint!)Xx

Fourbears Fri 27-Sep-13 20:12:03

I cried when people in our street had taken all the wheelie bins in, except one. I thought it would be lonely with no other wheelie bins to talk to...
grin

Also the first sign in hindsight that I was pregnant. I had been buying a birthday card for FIL and was walking back across the car park, away with the fairies when I nearly walked in front of a van. He beeped the horn to alert me, I jumped a mile into the air and went and sat in my car and sobbed and sobbed. Partly because it had been a shock and partly because I could have been so hurt and what would my family do then? He had parked nearly opposite me and could see me crying hysterically and was clearly feeling very uncomfortable. I felt guilty about that and it made me cry even harder. He eventually moved his van so he didn't have to look at me... Poor guy! I got my BFP a week later and went ooohhhh, now I understand. Gotta love these hormones!

Really wanting a bath and realising that DP hadn't cleaned it before leaving for work that morning, which meant I'd have to.

Threw a proper tantrum with angry tears.

Norfolknway Fri 27-Sep-13 20:31:43

Just half an hour ago when I realised that we had no milk left for toddler's bed time.
I just put my head in my hands and sobbed on poor DD's bed! She made me cry more by asking what was wrong and if I feel better now - weep!

fancydressdiva Fri 27-Sep-13 20:38:47

Paul Scholes's wotsit willy on league of your own last week.

I started laughing uncontrollably, got slightly hysterical and then for no reason just burst into tears.

Oh and I say down and watched bolt with the kids today and felt a lump at the end!

BummyMummy77 Fri 27-Sep-13 20:59:32

I get upset about the bath thing too.

I've developed a new tactic to make sure he doesn't forget now. Every time he forgets I throw his toothbrush out of the window and he has to scramble around in the bushes to find it. :D

Beats going nuts and I enjoy the throwing. Then I enjoy the swearing whilst he tries to get it back. It's the little things in life......

CecyHall Fri 27-Sep-13 21:02:59

I'm not pregnant now but when I was I had what is now referred to in our house as the frozen bread incident where I couldn't separate two pieces of frozen bread and went into absolute hysterics crying that if I couldn't even separate bread, how on earth could I look after a child!

SleepingWithABrokenHeart Fri 27-Sep-13 21:03:48

I was driving and had dd and oh in the car. I took a glance in the mirror and noticed I hadn't drawn my eyebrows on (they're blonde) I made a joke to oh 'I'll just tell people I left them on my pillow'

This turned into a laughing fit, and within seconds of this happening I broke down into tears. I was crying so much i had to pull over so I could finish off lol.

The crying has settled now, I'm not too bad, but the oh I was sat having a wee, while mallin and oh said whats up? I had no fucking clue.. but it felt good.

Sarahmains40 Fri 27-Sep-13 23:10:34

Just fancied a sausage sandwich so hubby went to shop with strict instruction of the type of sausage I wanted lol he came back with a Cumberland sausage which didn't cut it. I stomped my feet like a spoilt child and said its just not the right ones and burst out crying. He insisted on going bk to the shop but I didn't want to be ridiculous lol blush

Felt embarrassed that I got to upset lol followed him in to the other room and said sorry. Poor fella can't do right for wrong. He just give me a hug. It's quite funny and silly now but 4 hours ago I felt pure rage and upset lol damn theses bloody hormones.

I seem to get so angry and annoyed lately like steam coming out of my ears annoyed hmm

Xollob Sat 28-Sep-13 01:12:21

I nearly cried yesterday because an old man in Starbucks was brushing the crumbs off the table into his hand. I suspect he was alone and it was his version of housework [sniff][hormones].

Xollob Sat 28-Sep-13 01:14:56

Oh God - I'm on the pregnancy forum! 'Twas in active threads. I'm not even pregnant and haven't been for years - still feeling pathetic though blush.

KarmaBiatch Sat 28-Sep-13 01:19:28

BummyMummy your antics of throwing things has me in hysterics! Brilliant!

I have cried at numerous random things, but I recently cried in the middle of a packed shopping mall (in the states) because I got on the wrong escalator and had to go back up a level. Snivelling and snotting on an escalator in Nordstrom is not my proudest moment.

I have also cried doing the ironing, couldn't figure out why the shirts weren't looking as good as normal, and I'd 'ironed' 9 shirts without plugging the bloody iron in! Had to start all over, got through it all and then crumpled in to a sobbing heap on the floor.. the shirts looked nice though grin

MrsVDB Sat 28-Sep-13 07:47:35

My dh came home with the sausage roll I'd asked for but from wrong shop. Cue sobbing. Then sucked it up said thank you and started eating sausage roll. This sausage roll caused crumbs to fall on me. Cue more sobbing about stupid sausage roll.

On a recent flight we were the last to be offered our dinner choices and they had run out of the pasta I was going to choose. Cue sobbing and saying ill have no dinner. Poor air hostess went to business class to get me more options, which I still didn't want as had set my mind on the pasta. The whole (very long) flight she kept bringing me snacks instead. I felt awful

Hattie103 Sat 28-Sep-13 12:09:47

I'm 4 weeks in and find this all hilarious. Only because my husband is going to suffer terribly over the next 9months. I'm bad enough when not pregnant and hormonal! Let the games begin!

WhisperMen Sat 28-Sep-13 12:17:12

This morning brought a lovely fit of hysterics because I was making porridge and when I poured the milk on the oats I suddenly realised I had drowned them. I was crying because I had 'killed' the oats and then couldn't eat stuff!

The Gmail advert for the Cambridge Satchel Company and Top Gear when 'the boys' did the 24 hour race in a ratty old BMW. I sobbed when JC crossed the finish line. Thankfully OH was at work and I was watching it on Dave in the day so until now it was my guilty little secret.

Tea1Sugar Sat 28-Sep-13 14:01:37

An old lady opening a box on deal or no deal

Oh and last night cos my norks were leaking milk.

I'm having a fricking baby in (approx) 5 weeks. How the fuck did that happen?

Haylebop12 Sat 28-Sep-13 14:10:57

I cried because dh told me the chicken I was going to cook was out of date.

PrincessKitKat Sat 28-Sep-13 14:16:44

Not really a strange subject to get touched by, but my reaction was so OTT!
Last weekend I watched about 5 seconds of an inclusive theatre group for kids on 'surprise Surprise' i turned to my DH and said 'I shouldn't watch this' and in a blink was consumed by a tsunami of feelings - huge, wrenching, body shaking sobs with snot bubbles of utter emotion, mingled with hysterical laughter at how ridiculous I was being. It went on for ages.

Im 12+5. Never known anything like it, I will not be watching Noel's Christmas Presents this year.

BummyMummy77 Sat 28-Sep-13 14:25:20

cherry lips when you're crying at stuff on Dave you know it's time you need to get a grip lol! :D

Saying that, all I want to listen to recently is guns and roses (wtf?!) and cry lots. :S

But Bunny, he was just so happy that they'd won at something for once.

It could have been worse, it could have been Storage Hunters I bawled at ;)

BummyMummy77 Sat 28-Sep-13 15:05:09

cherry Storage WARS has made me literally piss my pants laughing. Don't think I've cried yet. :D

OnTheRunFromTheAcademe Sat 28-Sep-13 16:35:47

I cried a lot more last time I was pregnant than this time. I think my favourite occasion was when I broke down sobbing in Tescos because they didn't have the brand of baked beans I wanted.

This time I just have The Rage.

Sadie204 Sat 28-Sep-13 19:03:15

Been nearly wetting myself at some of these!! Some of my teary moments, or the ones I can remember at least;

DD1 going back to school, thought DS would miss her
DD2 starting nursery and didn't cry on her first day
DH suggesting DS needed his first haircut. Absolutely bawled my eyes out for days everytime I thought about it as it would make him a 'big boy' and not my baby anymore!
Saw an advert for Disney movies that showed Dumbo. Cried about the part where he meets his mommy cos it is so sad
Was gonna cook a chicken for dinner, found out the date was up the day before. Got teary as I threw it away as it seemed a shame for the chicken to end up in the bin confused
When pregnant with DD1, had a serious craving for baked potatoes with butter. Cried when I ran out of potatoes lol! Similarly cried when ran out of Dairylea cheese triangles!
Cried the other night when DH showed me a Wrigley's chewing gum advert on the net. Was so lovely, even just thinking about it I well up again! (Man gives his daughter little origami cranes made out of the chewing gum wrappers, gives her loads over the years then finds out when she is moving out years later that she has kept them all in a box!!)

I think they are all pretty reasonable in the scale of things lol

bludgerwitch Sat 28-Sep-13 22:32:01

I had a meltdown in the middle of the shopping centre today, we'd gone into Belfast and had an afternoon tea booked, but after about 90 minutes of walking around I just felt so rotten. I have a cold and my knee is really acting up so I was feeling tired and stuffed up and sore and we had over two hours to go.

I just felt so knackered and couldn't face the thought of waiting around another two hours, I had a proper meltdown. DH took me home and I slept for three hours and the world was ok again.

I've just had a little cry because one of my feet is swollen but not the other, it just doesn't seem fair!
Extreme Makeover: Home Edition gets me every time, but then so do about half of DDs books when I do her bedtime story.
Nearly cried at a motivational training video at work a little while ago, pulled myself together though.
I'm 35+4, and it's definitely getting worse!

Wolfiefan Sat 28-Sep-13 23:37:09

My cat hurt his ear. I was sobbing that he'd be scarred for life!
I got a biro mark on the loudspeaker of my new stereo and sobbed that I can't ever keep anything nice.
Others too many to mention!

I sobbed uncontrollably because I got trapped in our utility room by a frog that my cat had brought in. I couldn't open the door as it would squash the frog, but I didn't want to pick up the frog in case it hopped at me and made me jump. DH was sat on the other side of the door laughing his head off.

I couldn't do manage the yoga positions on my pregnancy exercise DVD. Obviously this meant I was a failure as a mum-to-be....

So far:

- got inside duvet cover to put it on the duvet (inside out). Lifted arms in corners, decided I looked like a ghost, and started going 'wooo, wooo', which was hysterically funny to the point I couldn't stand up. Fell on bed (still in duvet cover) and burst into tears because I couldn't stop laughing.

- planes going over our flat (they are very very low and incredibly noisy and it's always annoyed me) making me realise there's no way we can stay here when the baby is born, and worrying we wouldn't be able to move.

- watching Silver Linings Playbook - it was such an unrealistic representation of 'getting over' bipolar.

- two weeks ago I was up every night until after 2am, crying. Not sure why now hmm

- at work last week, not being able to get the stupid fucking ethernet devil cable to make the internet go into the laptop (I am not the IT person at my work).

I am 26 + 3. I still have weeks of this.

Brian Sewell talking about his dead dogs in the Fail today. I'm welling up now just thinking about it.

I sobbed for about ten minutes the other week, because I was tired and my feet hurt when I got to work. As I work in a shop I'm on my feet for most of the day, so the thought of the next eight hours was a bit much...
