I was on my why I hate being pregnancy thread when I read about Jordyn crying over not getting honey mustard with her chicken fingers and I thought it would be an interesting thread to start.
What made you cry?
I'll go first
My most dumb tear moment while being pregnant was during the first trimester I started to realize that I knew more about babies when I was a babysitting teen than I do now as an adult and it was scaring me. One day I was reading an article about backward facing carseats and thought OMG ANOTHER thing I didn't know!!!! I had NO CLUE that car seats face backwards ... this OF COURSE was immediate evidence that I would be a HORRIBLE mother and I started to cry and cry. My sweet HUbby said to me "don't worry I will show you how to put a carseat in" Through my sobs I sniffled at him and said, "how do YOU know how to put in a carseat" He is a very unemotionless matter of fact person and in his best trying to sooth me voice he says."I'm sure there are directions in the box"
hahahahahahahaha (that was a funny moment)
The only pregnancy cry I really remember now, was the morning of my 1st baby shower. We had a 3 hour drive to get to the shower, so we'd planned to leave around 8 AM. I was 6 months pregnant by then, so I was not sleeping very well at all. I accidentally woke DH up around 6, so he cheerfully said "Lets just get up and get on the road now. We'll beat morning rush hour traffic." I was so angry at him for being cheery and so disappointed to miss out on that 2 hours of sleep that I locked myself in the bathroom and cried for a good 20 minutes!
The worst breakdown I had was shortly after DS was born. He had some health problems, so I only BF him for a few weeks. He was incredibly colicky, and was having an unusually bad day about the time that my breasts were engorged after stopping the BF. I had ice packs tucked into by bra to help with the tenderness, when I bent down to pick up my son. Out slipped one of them, hitting dear son on the head. He began to wail louder, then I began to wail. I was convinced I'd given him brain damage! What a terrible mother. DH convinced me to calm down, called the doctor, and everything turned out fine in the end.
oh my is truly embarrasing, during the summer I had the biggest cravings for a ice cream from the ice cream truck. Well for some reason it took about 3 weeks before it actually came around to my house, so I went outside to get my ice cream I told the guy what I wanted and he said "oh oh, but you have to follow me to the next block, because I can't stay here anymore" I was like " are you kidding me?? I'm the only one in line!!" but he left and I went back home.
I tried to hold my tears but as soon as I saw my husband I started bawlling, and he was like what happen? was he rude to you?, did he say anything to you? I was like no. But was crying so hard that it was hard for me to talk. When I told him by husband started laughing at me which made me cry even more.
after I "recovered" I was so embarrassed about crying over ice cream. to this day my husband loves to talk about it.
oh my gosh. LOL>... i remember it like it was yesterday!
Hubby and I went to KFC for lunch one day. We had been workin on the nursery and just needed a break. I was around 8 months pregnant.. so i was cranky to begin with. lol. SO i order, and we get our food and come home. I eat the potato wedges,we're talkign and joking.. and i pull out my sandwiches.. and they're the wrong ones. i said to hubby, i cant eat these, the smell is making me sick. and i tried to hold back the tears but i couldnt. i bawled my eyes out and couldnt stop. so he went to KFC and got the right ones. I called my mom and she laughed hysterically.. which made me cry harder too... and she goes to me.. Well kid, you've hit the hormones. get some ice cream and pickles and you'll be fine. i laughed so hard i stopped crying.
i thought i ws the only one who did this.. i dont feel so bad now!
haha I was going to comment but you already covered it!
Jordyn - you were my inspiration!
Okay, here goes, I like ketchup, and mayo but not together.....ick. My SO and I stopped at Mcdonalds for burgers I wanted a cheese burger w/ lettuce tomato and mayo. Well we got home and opened the bag and low and behold there is mustard, pickles, and ketchup all over my burger. In my teared up voice I cried I can't eat this.....I bawled. I can't stand mustard and when it was on my burger that was the last straw. He went back and made them fix me a new sandwich. He was my hero that day.
We were in the process of building our house while I was pregnant. Well, My husband and FIL were on the porch using a table saw and when I walked out my hubby thought he would be funny and hold up only 4 fingers. I knew it was fake and he was just playing but I bawled like a baby. He felt sooo bad. His dad and mom didn't say a word, I don't think they knew what to do. When they saw me laughing while I was still crying then they knew I was ok. That was the only time I was "hormonal" during my pregnancy well except for the time I RAGED on some people who dumped trash on our property, but that is another story.
I am so glad that I'm not the only one who cried over fast food places getting things wrong. I feel so much better about my pregnancy now. My husband thought I was a freak. Then I showed him the thread and I told him. "See it's normal!" LOL!
I went hysterical when I learned that the regular maternity clothes didn't fit my twin belly. I found an adorable shirt that said "There's two peas in my pod." It was a one size fits all.... it was nowhere near close to fitting me. Who makes a one size fits all for a shirt meant for pregnant mothers of twins?! Are they just trying to make a huge pregnant lady weep?
