The Hilarious Reasons Pregnant Women Cry

By Amy Morrison

Turns out those amazing hormones that magically make you a vessel for new life can also make your emotions go completely batshit, leading to some, uh…memorable reasons pregnant women cry.

Rachel sent me this video that her husband took of her the other night of her good cry. (I’m sure many of you can relate to the very real emotions she was feeling.)

It was so good and so relatable, I posed the question to you fabulous readers. Of course you delivered, and in a big way.

Just a few reasons why pregnant women cry

From the sweet and sentimental, to the straight up unhinged (don’t worry – we’ve all been there), here’s a sampling of what’s turning you into a blubbering mess while you bake that babe.

1. Big feelings over a little bee.

"When I was pregnant, I cried on and off for two days about a bumblebee that passed away near my car in the parkade." Reasons pregnant women cry text version

2. Terrorized by toast.

"I had all day sickness throughout my first pregnancy, except for 4 weeks between months 6 and 7. One night, during this time, all I wanted was a piece of white bread, toasted with butter. My husband made it, brought it to me, then watched in disbelief as I took one bite and discarded it and started crying. I was so upset because he made me toasted and it tasted like toast. And I felt like I was going to wretch. And then I cried harder when he told me it was impossible to give me what I wanted, which was a different piece of toast..but to make sure it didn't taste like toast. I was inconsolable.

3. Heartfelt honking.

"I saw a car with a bumper sticker that said 'honk for gay rights!' I honked 9-14 times and then cried the whole way home." Reasons pregnant women cry text

11. Pregnancy + ponies + puppies = alllll the tears.
