Emotional woman

I've noticed myself being overly teary for a while now.

On Monday night Mr G inadvertently woke me when he got up to use the bathroom. I had a monster breakdown of the type you only have in the middle of the night. For some reason I was freaked out about being awake and not being able to sleep. It turned into wracking sobs that Mr G had to stroke and talk me down from. Of course, in the morning it was fine although i was super tired and embarrassed that i'd behaved like a five year old.

Then I cried last night watching the news of the honeymoon couple shot in Antigua. It's such a sad waste of life. How awful for that to happen on your honeymoon.

The most ridiculous breakdown was today. I was on my way to interview a restaurant owner - which, incidentally, he thought was tomorrow and wasn't there and I had booked in for today. (Pregnant brain? Most likely) The photographer and I caught the staff totally unprepared and very worried but we still managed to do the interview and get some pics. It was a raw food cafe and surprisingly really good. The photographer and I pigged out.

Anyway, on the way there, in my full make up (as they were going to take pics of me for the piece, I was listening to Stan by Eminem (you know, the one with the sample by Dido) and it made me cry! It was the thought of the man killing his girlfriend I think. I was even amused at myself, but couldn't stop the tears. Weirdo.

Finally - and you may want to stop reading here as it's DEFINITELY tmi - my bosoms have started oozing. About two weeks ago i noticed yellow goo coming from one of my nipples. Just a little. I believe it's the start of colostrum. Not unheard of at 26 weeks but a little freaky. Made me feel a bit strange.

Have been working hard again. Really enjoying being occupied but looking forward to tomorrow - first day of now work this week. Lovely.......

Hormones. Need I say more?

Wow that is a lot of tears in the last 24 hours. I'm sorry your emotions are running amok but this is good practice for the postpartum hormone crash / sleep deprivation lunacy that will follow... :-)

I have found my ability to weep at the slightest thing has remained intact 20 months after the birth. This hormone thing seems permanent...

I can totally relate to all the tears. I cry at least a few times a week for no logical reason.

I cannot imagine what it will be like after I deliver. yikes.

OMG...feeling your pain. I went through one of my most emotional days when Tim Russert died...I don't even follow politics! Chalk it up and I'm glad it's at least amusing you!

You're pregnant, you're allowed to be emotional!

Hormones will totally do that to you. Listen to his ridiculous-ness:

When I was pregnant with my twins, about 28 weeks, DH came into the room to find me hysterically crying. He asked me what was wrong and I explained to him how wonderful it was that after all the years they were separated by anger, Mr. Miagi and his best childhood friend Sato were working together to save their village in Okinawa and how sweet and wonderful that they can get past everything from the past! Yes - I was crying at Karate Kid 2. How sad was I?!

Oh - and I was embarrassed and laughing at myself while I was explaining all of this to him. To this day - 8 years later - he will look at me when I'm sad and say, "Wax on Danielson". hee heeee

I hope you are feeling better now. I did see that the groom died, but maybe it's better that way - they can be together in eternity.

Regarding all the other tears - have they slowed?
