Crazy Things That Make Pregnant Women Cry

Earlier this summer, back in my lat 1st tri when my hormones were surging and my food aversions were on blast, I asked my Facebook page what were some of the craziest things they’ve ever cried over while pregnant, mostly looking for solidarity because I was an emotional nightmare.

At the time, my husband had committed many crimes against pregnant hormones, including coming home with a Frosty that I desperately craved, only for me to discover their machine obviously had malfunctioned because it was completely melted and made of nothing but foam.

And he had one that was the exact same way and sucked it down, not even thinking that this was going to RUIN ME!  It’s like I haven’t had 3 other babies before this with him.

What followed on my FB page was one of the best comment threads ever. I was crying again, but only because I was laughing so hard.

(I finally got around to turning this into a video, which you can watch in full at the end of the post.)

Here are just a FEW of my favorites:

That must have hurt, Kristin. Truly.

  1. I cried every day when I was pregnant. I. am. not. a. crier. And I literally cried every day about anything and everything. One night at dinner my husband asked how my day was (which is usually the point where I would tell him what I cried about that day) and I realized I hadn’t cried about anything that day! I felt so excited for a split second before I started crying. I was crying because one day without crying was some sort of loser accomplishment. “What has my life become?” I wailed.

  2. I’m about 7 weeks pregnant with my fifth baby. Yesterday I teared up because I was hungry and it was going to take SO long to make a sandwich and get it in my belly.
