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 ladies. Of course you delivered, and in a big way. 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.
Just a few reasons why pregnant women cry:
Big feelings over a little bee.
Terrorized by toast.
When you finally see the light.
Not enamored by enamel protection.
When things aren’t gravy.
Hungry hungry hypocrisy.
Bravest doggos deserve tears.
Proof that pants are overrated.
A tornado of emotions.
Pregnancy + ponies + puppies = alllll the tears.
Crying over unspilled milk.
Afraid of the dark.
So there you have it, a few fun reasons pregnant women cry. If there’s one thing you take away from this, it’s that there’s nothing too small, too cute, or too covered in gravy to start the waterworks. If your pregnancy has turned you into a teary mess, you aren’t alone!
