Oh for goodness sake, I'm crying at Peppa Pig - what's made you cry today?

Peppa's camping trip - I got all emotional about how happy they were to see the ducks, and then again when they were happy to be back home hmm

Anyone else cried at something ridiculous?

I swear I was nothing like this emotional when I was pregnant with DS confused

I cried in Tesco yesterday when a toddler tripped over and sobbed.
It was heartbreaking sad

Normally the sound of a crying child would severely irritate me, so I'm taking it as a good sign that my hormones are preparing for a crying child of my own (or something)

Oh gosh yes, I saw someone's toddler get hurt (actually, it was awful, someone knocked a cup of coffee over her) and I cried and shook for ages afterwards.

I don't ever remember having that kind of reaction when DS cried though blush

But yes, I think it's probably a "getting ready for a baby" process smile

I wailed through Eastenders yesterday. blush

Eastenders?! What on earth was going on in Albert Square alps ?

I'm crying for anything today, cried since 5.45am! Still sobbing now after breaking my heart because there wasn't enough water in the kettle for my cup of tea WTF ???? Gotta laugh or I'll cry again blush

Well Kat is pregnant and Alfie asked her who the father is <sob> and the hot blond whose name I forgot has cervical cancer and she'd not told her family, had a row with her mum and her mum said "you get what you deserve in life".

<reaches for tissues again>

kat2504 Mon 05-Sep-11 09:09:14

Ok I'll let you off, that is very dramatic and with a pregnant person in it too you are allowed to cry.

I cried at an article about how much Wayne Bridge is in love with Frankie from the Saturday's.....

Hahaha! grin

No more trashy magazines for me!

When we went on holiday a couple of weeks ago I cried because there wasn't a Burger King at the airport! I really had my heart set on a chicken burger but had to settle for a stupid muffin from Costa - I felt really sorry for myself, and my husband was lovely and comforted me but probably thought I was a bit bonkers! grin

ImpyCelyn Mon 05-Sep-11 09:59:25

So glad to hear I'm not alone grin

Karmanna - I cried on Friday after spending the whole day saying I wanted Chinese, but when we went to order it I didn't fancy it anymore, it felt like such a crushing disappointment. DH was also lovely. He goes between smile and nod acceptance, and forgetting that I'm pregnant so being genuinely alarmed that I'm upset.

He was also fab at 2 am this morning when I woke him up sobbing and screaming because our "half-a-baby" had fallen down the back of the bed, complete with me rummaging frantically behind his head. I'm still not sure what I meant by "half-a-baby", I just remember I thought it was very slim hmm. And I kept trying to explain it to him, but was basically asleep so just said nonsense words grin

AlpinePony - I can't watch drama anymore, ads are bad enough!

Stogan Mon 05-Sep-11 10:05:13

Aw bless u impy that's so funny but so not funny as I totally understand ! grin

ImpyCelyn Mon 05-Sep-11 10:09:00

Thanks Stogan grin Did you get a cup of tea in the end?

goodnightmoon Mon 05-Sep-11 10:17:37

i lost it in the GPs on Friday when I was 10 minutes late for my 25 week appointment and they made me wait 1.5 hours and yelled at me when I asked how much longer. Sobbed for about half an hour over the injustice!

Then the GP pointed out it was only a mandatory appointment for first time mums and I needn't even have been there.

that same night got all teary eyed and melancholy in an airless karaoke booth of all places, thinking about all the life and emotion that is ahead of my 3 year old - and still wondering what the meaning of life is and what i should be passing on to him ...

sob ...

ImpyCelyn Mon 05-Sep-11 10:29:16

Oh that's rubbish goodnightmoon, it's so unnecessary on their part.

I also have those deep philosophical moments when I think about DS's future, and whether I'm setting him up properly; and then I realise I'm being a muppet and it'll happen however it happens smile

At least at 25 weeks people know you're pregnant now and you have an excuse. No one knows I am, so I just look like a loon grin

i cried today because its dd first day at secondary school, but she was at her dads last night so i didnt get to see her or take her. i phoned her and she was all excited but i really wanted to be there.

Stogan Mon 05-Sep-11 11:11:54

Ha ha yeah impy I did thanks hun, but then proceeded to cry when it started to rain as my washing was out , not a good day for me at all lol x

MissRee Mon 05-Sep-11 12:31:53

DP made me laugh so hard the other day it made my head hurt, which in turn made me bawl hysterically! He's vowed not to make me laugh any more now CIA it scared him blush


hawthers Mon 05-Sep-11 12:39:40

my husband said my bum had got bigger - i cried - then he said it again! was upset all weekend. in the end i discovered he really meant hips and i was just changing shape etc and it was curious and interesting and exciting (husband not an ar$e so believe the sidestepping)

stupid thing is i know my bum definitely has got bigger - i just didn't need it pointing out.... blush

They were talking on the radio yesterday about that milking cow in Bavaria that escaped and went on the run for 3 weeks. In the end an animal rescue place bought her calf 2 days before he was due to be sent for slaughter and when they put him near the woods she was hiding in she came out. They are now both living happily in a nice animal shelter.

I quite literally sobbed my heart out and even told dp that we had to go vegan because I felt bad for all the mummy animals that had their baby animals taken away from them (i am generally an enthusistic meat eater). Dp thought it was hilarious.

i cried when a girl i worked with years and years ago posted on FB her baby had been born coz i was just so happy for her, When my manager told me today she is pregnant (even thro ive known for weeks and has been sooo obvious) xfactor now has a note book effect on me and as i work in life insurance every time i process a death payment i well up thinking about the family (that i don't know)

Great fun it is smile

I cried at the Pocahontas cartoon yesterday.......oh, the shame.....

In all fairness, it was one of the songs that my DD first danced to in her first ballet show - she was only 4, and looked so adorable and whenever I thnk about it, I realise how quickly she's growing up.

I'll start blubbing again in a minute......blush

spannermary Mon 05-Sep-11 20:10:21

I watched Brassed Off at the weekend and blubbed. PROPER BLUBBED - made my face go funny and everything. Not helped by the fact that DH hates it! Now, Brassed Off is a damn good film, so maybe that's fair enough, but I've just watched Murder, She Wrote and that had me welling up too!

Scheherezade Tue 06-Sep-11 10:07:44

I cried last night because I had accidentally bought the wrong type of sheet for my bed, and it was really uncomfy sad

Going to buy another one today, but what a waste of money!

HotPinkGingham Tue 06-Sep-11 10:40:52

I am super clumsy at the moment - I absolutely bawled when I dropped DH's dinner on the floor one evening (he just picked off any obvious dirt and ate it); cried my eyes out when I dropped and smashed the jam for my toast; even had a few tears when I dropped my biscuit on the floor and it was too broken to salvage (it was the last one in the packet) hmm

TV is a bit of a minefield too - I have sat and sobbed during 'Extreme Makeover, Home Edition' (which I wouldn't even watch under normal circumstances - I've gone a bit sentimental); and there are certain TV ads (esp those involving cute families and couples in love) that get me every time, if they come on on the TV in the gym I have to look away to avoid shaming myself and blubbing on the treadmill... blush
