With pregnancy comes a lot of changes to your body. Everyone knows this. We expect it going in and know we will get bigger, retain water, possibly get stretch marks etc etc. Also, your hormones go wild and you become this crazy version of yourself. And this makes you cry. A lot.
The first time I cried in public due to pregnancy was a couple of weeks ago in the Dallas airport. When we landed I was like “hey this layover is in Texas, I’m getting some BBQ!” I was so excited for my BBQ lunch! I got in line, ordered my food and was just starting to pay when disaster struck. The bag full of food and bottled water slowly slide down the side of the counter and then smashed all over the floor. I took one look at it and burst in to tears. Not really the most rational reaction! I just stood there crying while the cashier stared at me until my husband came over from Subway to see what was going on. He whispered “she’s pregnant” to the lady and in 2 seconds she was making me another meal! And I was still crying.
A couple days later we were hiking on our vacation and I slipped on a rock. I caught myself with my hands and my right knee, but all I could think about was “oh no! the baby!” The fall didn’t even hurt but I just cried away, in front of about 50+ tourist at the waterfall!
There have been more instances of course, it’s like you cant even control it! My husband telling me he doesn’t like scented candles, stubbing my toe, pinterest, the last page of the book I was reading, people’s facebook updates, songs on the radio- all these things and more have made me cry in the past week alone!
Maybe all this crying will help prepare my husband for when the baby comes?
Have any good crying stories?
