What was your most emotional rollercoaster moment so far???
Sun, 07-24-2011 - 8:19pm

A few weeks ago my husband and I were lying in bed talking as we were settling into sleep, having a light conversation and laughing. Suddenly, out of the blue that Demi Moore/Patrick Swayze movie Ghost popped into my head and I thought of how horrible it would be if one of us were to die, especially right after having the baby. Why did my brain turn to that??? I started crying completely out of the blue - at first my husband thought I was laughing, I'm sure. When he realized I was serious and asked what was wrong all I could say between sobs was "I don't want you to die." He really must've thought I was crazy!! Of course we talked it through and he totally understood it was a pregnancy hormone thing (he is so understanding of all my emotional stuff), but I can't help but think about that night and laugh to myself.

What is something that triggered an emotional switch or outburst for you?

Also, check out my blog if you want :)

Awww! It is amazing what hormones during pregnancy will do to us! I think my biggest roller coaster moment with each of my children was the day we found out what we were having. The big ultrasound is just so amazing and you just walk out of there on such a high! I was pretty amazed at how many roller coaster moments I had after giving birth. The postpartum blues just blew me away. I remember stopping at a store a few days after giving birth and just crying my eyes out for no reason at all. I'm pretty sure my DH thought I was crazy!

Thanks for sharing your story with us! I hope you'll stop by often and share more about how your pregnancy is going.

That is great that he is so supportive of you emotionally. My DH definitely wasn't and thought it was me just using pregnancy as an excuse. I did the same stuff as you, except cry for no reason. It is the craziest thing, but funny if you think about it.
