I'm blaming these raging pregnancy hormones for what just happened...

Posted by   + Show Post


I broke down crying hysterically, which turned into uncontrollable laughter, which turned back to overwhelming sadness and crying, and laughing while crying at myself for how insane I must have looked to my so hehe.

What started all this?  A two year-old tantrum from my dd, which is never a big deal except for this one day.  My So noticed I was getting a little frustrated and he tried to take over, but she kept calling my name and was literally begging that I be the one to hold her and comfort her.  He told me no, that he could handle it, and so I went downstairs and began to cry.  Soon after she calmed down, they both came down as I was on the couch, not knowing anymore why the heck I was crying, but I just couldn't stop!  I continued to cry as I got up to start dinner and then I couldn't stop laughing at how ridiculous I was for crying about nothing, and while my so was laughing at me too, I started to feel like crying again...and I did as I was cutting bressel sprouts and wondering why i had such an uncontrollable impulse to break down crying even though I wasn't even upset!  This went back and forth for a good 15 minutes.  Well, am I crazy or what?

I've done this on one or more occasion when i was pregnant with my son. Like one night i asked my now ex husband to cook me pork chops with mashed potatoes, green beans and a few other things. Well he cooked everything for me and made my plate. I started eating and decided that i didn't want that any more and wanted something else to eat. I started crying cause i felt so bad for making him cook the meal. He started laughing at me saying its ok, what did i want to eat. My reply was i dunno. And cried even harder... lol

Aw I was like that a little bit for the first couple weeks with my first lol.  

Quoting AmandaMaeBell:

I did that right after  my first was born.  I cried over everything, I cried because the baby was hungry, I cried cause she was asleep, it just went on and on.  Scared my mom to death!  I'd say it's just your hormones.

It's frustrating, cause you don't want to cry and the next thing you know, your balling your eyes out and everyone is like Awww honey, what's wrong!  lol
