Cry me a river

Oh boy, and did I ever.  I'm talking, shoulders shaking, staggered breath- taking, wailing type of crying.  That was Saturday night.

What happened?  It really started out quite innocently.  DH and I finally sat down to plan out our itinerary for our upcoming SF trip and I picked a fight.  I was upset when I felt that he wasn't more 'excited' about the trip and in a matter of moments, that turned into a full blown - "it's going to be the LAST trip just US TWO, FOREVER!" - queue sobbing and hysterical crying for the next half an hour.

I don't know what came over me - well, I know it's hormones but seriously there was NO STOPPING IT. I tried to breathe, drink water, but the tears just coming  - the feelings of this is THE END of DH and me, and that future trips will never ever be the same. And why wasn't DH as upset as I was?  How come he seems so 'cool' with the fact that we'll never be the same?  

I am elated to be pregnant and estastic to start a family - so what gives?

I calmed down eventually - and by the time I woke up the next morning, all fresh and glowy, it was like it never happened.  I looked over at DH who looked unsure of which 'wifey' was sleeping beside him, and what mood she was in now.  But a quick hug and a kiss signaled to him I'm back.

But for how long?


Cry Baby


  1. Oh my goodness! Probably just the hormones getting you all worked up. We all have those silly moments!

  2. Awww... I know those days!! Glad you're feeling back to yourself now (and that you can laugh at yourself afterward!)

  3. Ah, yes. I remember those "episodes" - I had MANY of them! Totally normal :)

  4. Aww, I understand how you feel. Our poor husband's, have to deal with the crazy and emotional sometimes. It's all hormones. :)

  5. LOL!! You are not alone!! My poor husband sometimes looks like he's just gonna lose his head.

  6. Oh, I've been there! I've had a few, um, temper tantrums over the past few months. Luckily, they seem to go as fast as they come.

  7. I just had the same argument with my husband...I am trying to book our last vacation as a couple, and he's telling me I'm being dramatic, we'll have plenty of couple vacations once we have a baby. I argue that it will never be like before we had kids, he thinks I'm being silly. In the end we agreed to disagree and I'm to book the vacation as any other vacation.

    My point is, you're not crazy, I'm not crazy. Our husbands have their heads in the sand for whatever reason, and they are gonna get a hell of a wake up call come D-day. Oh well!
