Ladies please console me with tales of wild hormones!

I'm 6 weeks pregnant and twice this week I've had a good cry for no particular reason. I cried Monday as DS5 stood watching boys play rather then joining in. It's not like he was upset either he was happy as larry, so my tears were definitely OTT.

Then this morning I woke in a great mood, then the sickness hit so I decided to have a bath. I then cried after my bath as I felt so sick, DH decided to comfort me and I cried about my wet hair and how I wanted a fry up so bad.

WTAF? Please tell me this is normal and I'm not going crazy. I'm not struggling from depression as far as I'm aware, I have plenty of great moods and a positive outlook about the future. But these hormones are starting to scare me. Any funny stories to share and make me feel better would be massively appreciated smile

Nearly cried today when someone was talking about their pet duck that died a few years ago. It wasn't a duck I knew.

I'm 5 weeks today. Just after crying because that Dido song came on the radio confused

I think my favourites were:

1) bawling my eyes out because DH didn't have anyone to go to the pub with. I should probably add he had just walked in the door from a long day at work & had absolutely no desire whatsoever to go to the pub

2) the dinner which I had been cooking in the slow cooker all day smelt amazing & there was no way it could possibly taste as good as it smelt & therefore eating it would be a colossal disappointment. By the time I stopped crying it had gone cold hmm

For some reason, 'it wasn't a duck I knew' has me giggling like a loon! grin

When DD was a newborn, the SMA 'take it from us; you're doing great' advert had me HOWLING. Every. Sodding. Time. blush

Haha these are brilliant. I'm so glad it's not just me and I'm going crackers. How the hell am I going to cope with this for the next 12 months, after all its pretty much guaranteed after the birth I'm going to have a couple of months were my hormones run wild too. Joys of been a woman!

When pregnant with dc1 I cried because I'd knocked a bowl of nuts onto the floor. I got so worked up thinking dp will be mad he can't eat them anymore. When he came back into the room he just looked bemused. He gave me a hug and then cleaned up. No problem.

I cried When I got a hole in my leggings

salemtheteenagecat Fri 30-Sep-16 13:09:01

I cried and got extremely upset that dp didn't have a pound coin for the trolley and how possibly were we going to get any of the things we needed and I was indeed to fat to help to carry anything so we might as well go home and sulk as it clearly wasn't worth the effort any more.

We found a pound in the car...noticed dp always has a pound with him now grin

I started to wonder if I was pregnant when i had a full on snot and tears breakdown over DH putting my pyjamas in the wash. They were due to go on the next day anyway, but he'd put a dark load on and used them to make up a full load (with a couple of other bits). Not sure if I was angry, grateful or angry!

schokolade Fri 30-Sep-16 15:09:06

8 weeks here. Cried yesterday at lunch because my straw was too short to reach the bottom of my sprite. Pick it up then you fool...

Crystal15 Fri 30-Sep-16 16:41:33

Wow we really do go through it with hormones don't we!

daisygirlmac Fri 30-Sep-16 19:50:37

I had a big proper heaving sobs moment at about 10 weeks because I felt sick and I had to wash my hair and I didn't want to grin I was then fine for a while but the hormones are back at the moment (22 weeks) I cried yesterday because my leg hurt and DH wasn't sympathetic enough and how could I rely on him during labour grin

Crystal15 Fri 30-Sep-16 21:16:54

Surely there is some science behind all this?! I've cried about 10 times today now argh. My theory is hormones do this to prepare us for feeling maternal. Thing is I'm already a soppy sod

I have no symptoms in pregnancy (this is dc3 for us) - no sickness/tiredness/funny cravings at all in the past 2 pregnancies. But i'm ridiculous with crying.

Last night, dh got home late from work and went to the fridge and went 'Oh no, you didn't get any milk!' (which i'd told him I would get). He sounded mildly gutted as he wanted a cup of tea - not cross at ALL, no raised voice.

Nevertheless, it really upset me and I cried for an hour. He felt guilty as sin bless him, I had no control though.

Weeks 4 to 10 were a hormonal mess for me. I'm only 13+4 now but my hubby and I are already laughing at some of the things I cried over in those weeks. Our top 3 are:

1.) He came home one Sunday lunch time and found me staring out the kitchen window, looking very forlorn. He asked what was wrong and I just quietly started sobbing, buried my face in his chest and said (like a 3 year old) "We have no ice cream and I really want ice cream!" 😢 He asked why I didn't go buy any and I said "I didn't think of that..."

2.) I woke up one morning for work and just burst into tears because I didn't want to go to work. I wanted to go for a Burger King for breakfast instead, so that was the end of the world! By the way, I never eat at Burger King!? 😂

3.) I came home from work and DH had bought a 'Guess How Much I Love You' hare as babies first teddy. I cried and hugged it for an hour! 😐

twocultures Sat 01-Oct-16 17:26:11

I've had a fairly symptom free pregnancy and then one day whilst bored and flicking through tv channels I stumbled onto One Born Every Minute, (at this point it would be useful to mention that in my eyes labour and the whole giving birth situation was still 'ewww' for some reason) so 2mins in the first baby pops out and for the next hour I'm blubbering like an idiot, and for the next episode ...and the next...and the next....grin

Badgerbird Sat 01-Oct-16 20:00:18

Oh I loved this so much!! grin
Reason I did pregnancy test was coz I'd been a stroppy cow all day (poor dh) then burst into tears saying how much I loved him blah blah.... he demanded I take a test. Bingo BFP!

Crystal15 Sun 02-Oct-16 10:14:42

Badgebird I do that sometimes! I have to stop myself declaring my love for DH and my boys and hold bk the tears as they would think I've lost the plot haha.

I was thinking bk this morning to when my DS was a baby and I welled up out of nowhere. Not even sure why!

schokolade Sun 02-Oct-16 14:35:10

Today I cried because the car wasn't parked in the spot I thought it was. DH had to park two spots down. Ridiculous.

MoneyPit2016 Fri 07-Oct-16 23:44:55

1) Cried because I found out swans mate for life - and can be gay.
2) Cried because the dog was asleep in his bed and I don't want him to get old and die (he's only 8).
3) Cried because OH bought a different fragrance laundry liquid. And again because I like it more than our usual one.

Winegumaddict Sat 08-Oct-16 07:25:43

I love these. This pregnancy I've been a lot less hormonal but with DC1 I cried when I was about 36 weeks as I didn't want my dog to die. He was about 6 at the time and perfectly healthy (he still is) and to make it worse DH said you do know he will die one day don't you. Of course I know but him pointing it out had me sobbing for about an hour. Daft dog is still going strong and should for a couple more years at least!

FranksBobot Sat 08-Oct-16 07:32:49

Yesterday I cried at Big Hero 6, I'm not pregnant or due on and youngest dc is almost 2 confused

Reindeerlily Sat 08-Oct-16 07:36:08

I cried most days when I was pregnant. An advert on the tele would be enough, I cried because my coat wouldn't do up over my bump and yelled at my dp as it was his fault!

Mermaid36 Sat 08-Oct-16 07:39:06

If it's any consolation, I'm 6 months post partum and I was sat in Mama's & Papa's feeding the twins, and they have some "inspirational" quotes on the wall of the feeding room....I was blubbing away because they were "so true"....DH was a bit hmm because he thought that I'd be over it now (apparently)
