Hormonally Challenged

This pregnancy, I cry at absolutely everything.  Church is a nightmare.  Everything someone says at the pulpit has me tearing up, even when someone gets sustained, because that's just so awesome that they get a calling.  Television shows ranging from the Mindy Kaling Project to Dancing With the Stars to Downton Abbey to Beauty and the Beast.  Yes.  I know it is absolutely incredulously ridiculous, but it's the truth.

I am super sensitive.  I can tear up just from thinking about my little baby.  I can tear up eating a really good sandwich I made myself mocking Panera's Mediterannean Veggie (it was that good).  I can tear up thinking about how much laundry I have to do.  I can tear up thinking about how bad I am at Bejeweled Blitz.  I can tear up watching commercials.  It's pretty insane.  

Jordan doesn't seem to realize.  He still is having fun, watching Mickey Mouse, trying to ride his motorcycle toy, and throwing balls around.

Ha, I am the same way pregnant...or once a month really. It's kind of embarrassing, because I'll be talking to someone about their kids or something and I guess the conversation will be so tender I'll just start tearing up. I'm sure it comes across as creepy and in the back of my mind I'm thinking, "seriously? You're crying??? Pull it together!" But it is what it is. I've always been an easy crier, and the hormones don't do me any favors. I feel you on this, especially the really good sandwich. Delicious food is a beautiful thing when pregnant, and I don't blame you one bit for tearing up over your wannabe Panera!!

Lol. I totally relate to you and your other commenter. I tear up over everything and pregnancy just adds fuel. I think after my last kid, the hormones that made me cry more never subsided. Oh well, we'll just call ourselves sensitive:)
