  • hugsHormones do that. It's ok to cry. I'm not sure how to stop crying bc with hormones anything can set it off; good days, bad days, happiness, sadness, the sun shine, rain, doesn't matter. I think if you hang in there a bit the hormones might settle down and you'll be ok again but here's a hug just in case

  • Oh girl my hormones went crazy when I was pregnant, it's normal. Just keep yourself busy! Try and do things that make you happy and focus on getting ready for the baby. No one really prepares you for it my baby came 3 weeks early but we got through it! She's happy healthy and loved, it's been 6 months. I still have my crying days but that baby will make you smile no matter what its a hormonal thing..unfortunately some woman get it bad

  • Honey, it's okay to cry! Like the others have said, it's the hormones, but crying is a wonderful stress reliever! I will pray for you to be as stress free as possible, and in the meantime, grab a box of kleenex and let those tears flow!

  • I hear every word sister!! I'm due with my second in March and my husband, who was only working very part-time, is about to lose all his working opportunities for a while. He is also a full-time college student, so there are always financial concerns at our house. When I was due with my first baby we were so dirt poor we were living in my old bedroom at my parents' house. We didn't even have our own space, just a queen bed in a tiny room with a bassinet. Things will work out. I'm never sure how, but they always do. Message me if you still need to talk. I've been super emotional this pregnancy too, so I know how you feel. I'm 17 and a half weeks, by the way.

  • Honey, it's your hormones. I was the same exact way. EVERYTHING made me cry...especially commercials with babies!! When I was pregnant with my second, that Pampers commerical came out where they show all the sleeping babies. OMG!! I'd lose it EVERYTIME. My boyfriend never seemed to understand either. Once or twice he made me feel better...but that's it! And that's through TWO pregnancies!! Now, with my first, it eventually went away closer to the end. As for my second, I was a mess the whole time. I hope whatever is stressing you out STOPS and if you ever need an ear I'm here. Good luck!
