things that make me Cry. 13 comments


You know those stories that people post on twitter, Facebook or Instagram about what is making their child/toddler cry? You know how ridiculous they can be? Guess what – pregnant women are the same way. For your enjoyment (and my own, because I have to laugh too!), here’s a list of some of the many things that have made me cry thus far in the pregnancy. Enjoy. And laugh. Some of them make sense, others are just ridiculous. Even in the moment I can admit the ridiculousness of the tears and yet they fall anyway, so after the tears clear the laughter comes.

Wanting to wear pants, though none of them fit.

Dear John, especially the scene with John and his dad in the hospital.

Thinking about telling my parents the name we’ve picked out for our child once it is born.

Not being able to get the lid of my water-bottle unscrewed.

Just about any scene in any show in which a mom or dad is hugging their child. Or talking to their child. Or thinking about their child.

Talking about abortion.

Monkeys.

Finding out that friends of mine are also pregnant.

My players on The Sims 2 being unhappy.

A fire in the house of The Sims 2.

Voicemails at work that are so long it cuts people off…so they call back to leave another voicemail.

My razor not having enough of a charge to shave both of my legs.

Just thinking about the last episode of Boy Meets World.

Reading stories and not at all expecting them to be about a baby who dies.

My hair doing whatever it wants, even after I straightened it into submission.

Getting a cold and not being able to take cold medicine.

Care to add to the list? What has made you cry during your pregnancies? Funny or serious – anything goes!

    My husband started talking about exercising and asked me if I wanted to do squats. I then broke down into a fit of hysterical crying interspersed with laughter because I knew how ridiculous it was to be crying about squats 😉

    Hormones are hilarious and stupid.

    Hearing Sprout’s heartbeat, having quiet time and feeling/seeing the movement in my belly, daydreaming about handing my Mom the grandbaby she’s longed for-those are some good cries. I did have a meltdown cry at the store trying to register for the baby. Turned me into a sobbing heap made worse (in a good way) when Gary took me in his arms, told me it was gonna be ok, then said “I’m gonna buy you a Snoogle” . After hearing him say “Snoogle” I burst out laughing and crying because he was so sweet. The other not so good cry was at my last doc visit when my doc expressed concern over my blood sugar. With as careful as I am about what I eat/drink and how active I’ve been, the possibility of facing gestational diabetes is pretty devastating. But I’m refusing to let it bring me down or steal the joy that this baby has brought us 🙂

      I am SO excited to feel the baby move – I still can’t decide if it is hunger/digestion or Monkey! I’ve had a few comical meltdowns and a few serious ones. The more I think about things once Monkey is born – like you said, handing the baby to my parents/Anthony’s parents – the more it totally and completely tugs on every single heart string I have.

      I’m sorry about the doctor’s visit, I’ll say some prayers and hope everything works out and that you don’t have GD 🙁 Even if you do have it, just remember the joy and blessing of Sprout! 🙂 🙂

        Thanks for the prayers, love 🙂 Keeping you, Anthony and Monkey in my prayers as well!
        Feeling the baby move is the most amazing experience! I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re feeling movement-I started feeling Sprout at about 9 or 10 weeks. Thanks for writing such an awesome blog, girl 🙂 ♡&Blessings

    The swoosh swoosh swoosh sound of a little heartbeat, the ugly look (and horrible feel of) blubber ankles/cankles, the look in my husband’s eyes as he laid his head on my belly, talking to our unborn child, the sound of stillness at night, the moment of transubstantiation during mass…

    I tend to cry at any commercial about babies or when I see pictures of adorable little newborns. Of course, just looking at baby pictures of my older “babies” makes me tear up, pregnant or not! Hope you are feeling well! 🙂 God bless.
