I cried because I couldn't finish the washing up. Proper, snotty, worked up tears over how useless I obviously am.

I am 11/12 weeks pregnant with DC2 (I swear I wasnt this bad with DD!!!) and feeling absolutely vile.

So tell me, why have you cried today?

On Friday I cried because I saw a cute dog

OMGBabyNo3 Sun 21-Jun-15 22:25:50

Watched Surprise Surprise-it was a given I'd cry really. 25 weeks here

Ladypug Sun 21-Jun-15 22:33:26

I cried because my neighbours are horrid and never take their rubbish out!

Watching an old episode of OBEM - but this always set me off pre-pg too

Tia2005 Sun 21-Jun-15 22:43:58

I cry because everything is going wrong sad

Wildflower91 Sun 21-Jun-15 22:50:56

I cried during Songs of Praise.

I cried for no reason!!

Gillian1980 Mon 22-Jun-15 00:35:48

Cried because I took exception to DHs tone of voice.

I cried at the ending of the film bolt today. The very same ending I must have seen oooh at least 9995477652000 times now thanks to DS and I haven't so much as sniffled at it before.

23 weeks with DC2.

Because I didn't want to go to the inlaws for fathers day lunch as I couldn't face the drive; because I felt sorry for myself, because my maternity clothes are getting tight, and there's still 13 weeks to go; because the shop only had raspberry and not blueberry scones. Granted none of them was full on crying, but each warranted 'woe is me' sniveling blush

The nationwide advert, with the scarf.

DulcetMoans Mon 22-Jun-15 10:33:30

I cried when I stood on a snail.

I cried when DH implied I broke the Hoover.

(Ok, they weren't today but the have been over the past few weeks!)

I cried because:

DH bought me a pack of Chewits as a surprise and I was overwhelmed by his kindness.

My cat loves me and gave me a hug. This went on for a while as then I started telling him I'm so grateful for him and listed all the horrible times he's been there for me. Then I apologised for all the things that have upset him.

I realised I'd finished watching all the tv shows I was excited about and have no other new shows to look forward to.

A friend quoted the saddest part of one of my favourite books on Facebook.

I got overwhelmed by feelings and started crying because I had all these feelings and then carried on crying because I was being silly for crying over having feelings.

Those are all just from this morning. 22 weeks with DC2 and I have never been so emotional in my entire life.

I cried when I went to my friends house for dinner and she had mint choc chip icecream

duckbilled Mon 22-Jun-15 12:19:15

I cried because the chicken i bought is too big to fit in my slow cooker confused

whohasnickedmyvodka Mon 22-Jun-15 12:25:52

I have cried this morning because I need French fancys and I don't have any and I can't get to the shops 13+4

MelB2014 Mon 22-Jun-15 12:32:56

I cried this weekend because I have one week left of a professional course and a 10,000 word assignment to finish and my baby brain is making it really hard!

I'm 24w4d and haven't been too bad recently. In my first trimester I watched some of the Crufts coverage on TV and cried because a dog won a prize and it looked happy...

I couldn't watch anything actually tearjerking at all!

Sunshineleaves31 Mon 22-Jun-15 12:40:31

I cried watching an episode of the new Clangers as everything is happy on Clanger world and that is a nice thought!

tinyme135 Mon 22-Jun-15 12:41:22

I cried because work was stressing me out and I'm getting big and my button on my trousers popped off. Oh and I cried because my OH found it funny :'( x

ollieplimsoles Mon 22-Jun-15 12:47:54

23 weeks today here!

I cried because my sister went away....on her honeymoon.
I cried when she came back too.

If I feel like I NEED a cry- I watch this video, it always sets me off, but in a happy way, and I feel really close to my baby and DH afterwards!

Because the baby turtles hatched and straight away had to face a perilous journey across the beach to the sea without any help or any mummy to see them safe and not all of them make it.

<bawls>

MrsLovell Me too! That scarf advert is precisely the thing I came on this thread to say. I've seen it twice in the last couple of days and both times it got me. I'm not even 5 weeks...!

SredniVashtarr Mon 22-Jun-15 16:47:08

Last pregnancy I cried because my fish cake was so tasty.

tootsroots Mon 22-Jun-15 16:56:24

The sad Yulin dog meat festival. Sobbing at my screen reading it.

And the choc cookie i just ate was too dry, eyes welled up in disappointment.
