Oh No, Waterworks.

I have to admit, ever since I had Roo I've become a tad bit more emotional than I've ever been... and being pregnant again hasn't helped this at all.

Let me give you an example, say I'm watching TV and someone has a baby. Instantly, I'm a blubbering idiot crying over the miracle of birth. Hell, say I'm reading a book about love, death, dogs, anything, I cry.

I even get emotional watching Maury's DNA test results!!

While this is humorous to my husband, it's potentially embarrassing to me. When I go to the gym to work out, I always snag a elliptical machine with the TV attached to it so I can catch up on whatever I missed during the day... and tears in public are not the coolest thing. People tend to look at you like you're a nut job if you cry in public.

Sure, I could stop watching TV at the gym, but what fun would working out be?

I could stop watching all TV shows that include babies, love, any ups and downs in life... but that would make for a really long 9 months.

I guess I'll just have to suck it up, hide my tears or just wait until my belly pops out and if I cry and people look at me funny I can just point to the life growing inside of me as an explanation.


Maybe not.

I was the exact same way. I STILL cry every-time I flip by the channels and see "Bringing Home Baby"! I also wanted to let you know about a giveaway I'm having on my blog for Mommy Bloggers, enter it here:

I've never had children and I swear, I am THAT GIRL. I don't even want to imagine what pregnancy will do to me! When I get teary in public, I always use the classic, "Agh, something's in my eye!" ;)

Sorry to tell you this, but it only gets worse after No° 2. Be prepared to cry at phone commercials, a sunset, you name it!
