I can cry if I want to...

Up until about a week ago I hadn't noticed anything too strange when it comes to my ability (or inability) to control my emotions.


Apparently that has changed. A lot.

I have been crying about everything lately. I cry when I talk to Rachel. I cry when I talk about Rachel. I cry when I talk to my husband. I cry when I talk about my husband. Basically I cry when I talk about anyone or anything that I love. I'm a complete basket case.

I don't remember having this problem the last time I was pregnant, and I can't quite wrap my head around this new thing that I have no control over. It bugs me that I can't just tell myself to toughen up...I tried that and it made me cry. Good Lord!

And the thing that bugs me the most is that I, apparently, still don't look pregnant so to those who have no idea what's going on...I have no excuse for my actions. I need to carry a sign that says, "Why? Because I'm pregnant." That would cover just about everything: why I cry, why I waddle, why I eat strange food, why I complain about the horrible May heat, etc.

Or, maybe I'll just start wearing really tight clothing so my big belly shows and then everyone will, no doubt, know why a walk across the street made me cry.


  1. This should make you feel better.

  2. Yes! Yes it makes me feel soooo much better, almost "normal" even! Thanks for sharing this.

  3. Oh Angie - It is just hormones, every pregnancy is different. Let everyone think you are crazy and cry some more so you will feel better. It will get better!!
