I am now five months pregnant with my second baby, a girl, and I am hormonal as ever. I can cry at the drop of a hat. I wasn’t like this when I was pregnant with Ari. During my first pregnancy, I was more aggressive than anything else. I was blunt, confident and nobody would dare mess with me. I was a pregnant superhero.
This pregnancy, I feel more like a damsel in distress. I’m an emotional roller coaster. Unfortunately, poor Ari has to see my go through these crying fits. I don’t know exactly what to do when I am “touched” with emotion. When Ari sees me cry he says:
“Don’t cry mommy! You don’t cry.”
But the truth is, I do cry. And I cry a lot at this point in time. I mean, I’m normally a sensitive person, but this is overwhelming. Tiny little things make me cry. Things that (probably) wouldn’t bother me if there weren’t a fetus, and raging hormones around.
So, I have a question for all you mommies out there, pregnant or not. What do you do when you feel the need to cry in front of your kids?
