... When pregnant, hormonal or otherwise?

I'm sure this thread has been done before (many times) but thought I'd add some light-heartedness to MN today.

I'm making some brownies for a friend & had just enough ingredients to make a batch for home. First lot in the oven. Second batch sat in a bowl mixed ready for the oven. Decided to make some lunch while I wait for the cooking process & added a huge dollop of mayonnaise into the brownie mix instead of the tuna. Normally this would annoy me (greatly) & would be then binned. Today, at 26 weeks pregnant, it's instead resulted in a tearful breakdown! Curse the hormones!

You should have baked them - they may have been delicious! grin

I hesitate to say this in case it brings more tears but... There are cakes that are made with mayo... After all it's just eggs and oil. Unless it was the garlicky type.
I would have baked them just to see!

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Sun 10-Jul-16 15:25:55

Oooooh yes I've actually seen a Hellmann's recipe for brownies (sorry OP if that makes it worse)!

I'm sure it's revolting though!

Oh what a shame you binned them! Mayo is excellent in cakes and bakes.

When DD was born she went into NICU and I expressed milk for her. There's a milk fridge in NICU and you label your expressed with your baby's name so the nurses can feed them for you. Anyway I was putting the milk in the fridge and was looking at the shelves of milk with baby names on, thinking about all the mums of sick babies expressing, desperate to do whatever they can to help. Suddenly I was a blubbering wreck.
So in answer to your question, milk. But I had just given birth.

Really?! Oh my goodness! I'd never of guessed. Perhaps the person who invented mayo cakes had a moment of madness (clearly turned into genius) like me! Maybe I should of bunged them in the oven anyway!

pollyanna, ive just watched it on tv and i know its cheesy but i couldnt stop the tears
the glad game sad

Haha well I'm only 5 weeks pregnant and am bursting into tears at the most random things.

I cried because the dog was cute.

I cried at the happy bit in Madagascar 3 when they were doing the circus show.

VanillaSugar Sun 10-Jul-16 15:39:27

I cry all the time. I was in pieces at Inside Out ' completely traumatised shock

Oysterbabe Sun 10-Jul-16 15:42:08

Also someone sent me this video.

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Sun 10-Jul-16 15:46:40

Oh no vanilla I haven't seen that. Is it traumatising? I'm still not over Up. I balled my eyes out the whole way through that bloody film and I wasn't even pregnant!

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Sun 10-Jul-16 15:47:51

I did cry at Imitation Game on Thursday. Again I'm not pregnant but that was horribly sad and true too, so not altogether U.

The Good Dinosaur had me crying for weeks after seeing it. When they both get the little sticks to show one another their lost families and draw circles around them then knock them down, I'm wounded.

I cry when I'm due to begin my period, every time. Last month my devil cat had a fight with a hedgehog, I managed to get the cat away into the house and revive the hedgehog with some cat food and eventually he scuttled off into the garden. I cried with joy that he'd not been killed by her manic ways. The cat is still giving me the cod eye now.

WhooooAmI24601 Sun 10-Jul-16 15:51:58

Stevie the first 10 minutes of Up is by far the greatest love story ever told. Everyone cries at that, even hard-hearted people!

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Sun 10-Jul-16 15:54:44

Yes, it's so lovely. They're so in love and then... and then... sniff... waaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiillll!

Ohwoolballs Sun 10-Jul-16 16:01:38

Oh maaaaaan. When I was pregnant I cried over everything!
There was a song, I think called March of the Elephants or something like that. It was a dance track and would have been on the radio at the end of last year/start of this year. I was driving me and DP to work and it came on and I started imagining elephants and it got me all teary. DP was hooting with laughter. (I was about 7/8 months by this point.)
I cried when I first bought some baby grows when we first found out I was pregnant.
I still cry at the pampers adverts. (Babe is now 15 weeks old.)

Few things set me off, I'm not a tearful person...until pregnancy.

I had the mother of all tantrums a few weeks ago because the jacket I wanted to wear to go out for a meal didn't look the way I'd imagined it, then my favourite heels were making my balance off kilter, and then my false eyelash fell off. My Dh wandered into the bedroom, told me I looked beautiful and I lost it completely because "CLEARLY I SO DON'T, MUPPET!"

I genuinely threw myself on our bed, wept bitter tears and wailed for an hour....when I'd calmed down sufficiently he took me for a drive-thru KFC because my face was so swollen, red and puffy I couldn't have gone to a resteraunt, and was still doing that sort of hiccupy snotty sniffling for ages after. Not my finest moment, I am 30 (and 20+4)

WibblyWobblyJellyHead Sun 10-Jul-16 16:15:48

I had a full blown snotty tantrum at 38wks when the curry house delivered two prawn madras instead of one KING prawn madras.

I was distraught.

I've made Philadelphia brownies before, they were lush.

I'd have taken the chance and baked them, but let's face it this advice is pretty useless after the event!

I cried at Inside out and toy story 3, and I'm a grown man.

IggyPopsicle Sun 10-Jul-16 16:26:58

I had a big sob in the toilets today at work, just after I had a panic attack over a spider that appeared while I was sorting through some old dusty boxes. I am really very scared of them and I just froze in fear, and hyperventilated so much that I almost passed out. I could see people going past the window and I really wanted to ask for help but I couldn't get the words out. It took me 15 minutes before I could walk away and it really upset me for the rest of the day. Stupid, I know..I thought hypnotherapy had worked and I was over it but obviously not sad

Beth2511 Sun 10-Jul-16 16:36:21

I cried because OH forgot to bring me home some brownies from work. I am 26 weeks in my defence...

VanillaSugar Sun 10-Jul-16 16:38:12

steviebuns I still cry over it because it is the story of my life at the moment. We moved to a new area where everyone is unfriendly & everything's going wrong, so it really hit a nerve. Poor little DS watched it & then I heard him tell his sister "I wish there was a character called Loneliness..." and I cried even more at that. Shit. Am crying now, remembering the crying, only things are ever so teeny weensy better 12 months on.

sad [crying]

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Sun 10-Jul-16 16:38:46

Before I knew I was pregnant I did cry when DH was ordering a takeaway and didn't want to order fish cakes. I cried; he ordered the fish cakes.

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Sun 10-Jul-16 16:39:37

Oh no sorry to read that vanilla! sad

We've just moved too. It's horrible and very lonely. flowers
