I guess the title here says it all but I feel like such a muppet. I know the old hormones are going nuts, but in the past 2 days I've got through a whole toilet roll mopping up tears. I guess despite having 2 scans(at 6+4w and 10w)it's only dawned on me now that I'm having a baby. It's my first so all seems so overwhelming. Got my 12w scan next Monday which terrifies me despite seeing a rather happy, moving bean just a week ago. This is my first and worrying I wont be a good mum etc. Has anyone else felt crappy like this?

This is all completely normal! It is terrifying - even when it's what you want - and on top of perfectly natural worries, the hormones make you extra-emotional. I'm on my second pregnancy and worry about it and burst into tears all the time, just like I did last time - and for the record I have really enjoyed motherhood so far so I should know that it's nothing to fear. It's just the state of pregnancy that does this to you. As it goes on though, you may well get more used to it and things like buying baby stuff help to prepare you. Good luck for Monday (and beyond!).

I can remember crying my eyes out because I dropped an apple on the kitchen floor, and hanging off poor DH sobbing about it for about 15 minutes - it just seemed so sad! Hardly rational behaviour, so obviously very hormonal!

At 12 weeks I was crying at 60 Minute Makeover. Says it all really!

when I was 12 weeks I cried at the Build-a-bear shop when you have to make a wish on it's heart just before they stitch it up, my DP was like 'what the hell's wrong with you' I couldn't come up with a decent answer!!!!

I wouldn't worry about it - I cried today because we didn't have any poppadums to have horseraddish and cranberry sauce on. Why that combo even appeared in my mind I have not idea but irang DH in tears and he duly appeared 20mins later with all the ingredients but by then I had gone off the idea blush

Last time I was pg there was some advert running about a family where the dad and kids surprised the mum by bringing her some lovely product (can't remember what it was, what a great ad that was eh) but anyway every time I saw it I cried for ages. It was just so moving and she was so happy with her whatever-it-was and her family loved her - it was just too much! <sob>

Crazy crying was my first indication that I was actually pregnant. My husband asked if there was anything I wanted to add to the shopping list and I burst out crying, telling him to stop being so horrible to me!!
