  • You're still the same person you always were. You just have another person to worry about and cry when they get hurt.

  • Everybody is different and for me I felt like my hormones and emotions took about 3 years to get back to feeling normal to me.

  • After I had my kids... I cry easier ... that is really the only "emotional" change I have had ....

    Before it was very hard to make myself cry ( no matter how upset I was I just didnt feel the need to cry) ... and now if I hear about a kid getting hurt or even sad commercials or stories then I have to hold back the tears !

  • I didn't have any emotion / hormone issues while pregnant! I loved being pregnant, I was a much nicer person pregnant! But 3 days after I had my daughter I got the baby blues and cried all the time over nothing and just wasn't myself. But after a couple of weeks I snapped out of it and returned to my normal self! Everybody is different! Some women are emotional during pregnancy and are just fine after the having the baby!
