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!

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!

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.

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

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!

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!

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! )

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>

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.

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!

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.
