Crazy Emotional Girl

So if I hadn't taken a pregnancy test, I would definitely know that I'm pregnant now because my emotions are going crazy! I haven't told anyone in my ward that I'm prego yet, and yesterday I had to teach the lesson in Relief Society. I had Joe's cell phone with me before church started because he was waiting for a message from the missionaries to give him the dates that they need to be fed. He wanted me to send a sign-up sheet around for him if they called. Well, I saw that there was a message from them (are you wondering where this story is going?) so I said to the RS President that I was going to listen to the message so we could send the sign-up sheet around. I think she was a little stressed about all the other sign-ups we had, so she abruptly (at least in my mind) said to me, "Can that wait until next week?" I didn't know how to respond, so I just started crying. This caught her TOTALLY off guard. She asked me if she'd hurt my feelings and I said, "no...it's OK...I'm just really emotional." I hurried and went to the bathroom to try to compose myself for two minutes before I had to teach. Anyway, I knew that pretty much the whole Relief Society had seen me burst into tears, so I started my lesson by saying that whenever I have to give a talk or lesson, my emotions are right on the surface. I said that I had just been talking to Renette before we started and burst into tears and that she probably thought she'd totally offended me, but I was just on the verge of tears anyway. So that was PARTLY true, but mostly it's just that I'm a pregnant, hormonal, emotional girl. I guess I could've just announced it to the world, but I'll tell Renette later...I'm sure she'll get a good laugh. The lesson went pretty well...I cried a little bit, but it wasn't the big, ugly face cry (thank goodness). Joe was flattered that I was so determined to carry out his assignment (which the RS President announced FIRST after all...how embarrassing!)

So was that the end to my emotional outbursts? Oh no... Today was supposed to be my first doctor's appointment. I arrived 15 minutes early to fill out all the paperwork, etc. Joe was meeting me there. When I walked in, I found out that Dr. Yamashiro had just left to deliver a baby. I had to reschedule for NEXT MONDAY. I kept my composure, but when I walked out, Joe was walking up to the office and I started bawling (it was the big, ugly cry this time). It obviously ISN'T that big of a deal, but I was pretty disappointed. Thank goodness for a cute husband who has learned that I am an emotional girl anyway, but when pregnant it's magnified about 500 times. He probably just wanted to laugh when I started crying, but he didn't... ANYWAY, hopefully we don't have a repeat situation next week...I can't handle anymore "rejection".

Emotional? Must be hereditary! Sorry! Teaching is stressful and could have contributed to your emotional outburst. Maybe it's not all hormonal. Can I just say that Parker's pictures on your blog are the cutest ever!!!

We have all been there: pregnant and super emotional. You are so lucky to have Joe, who knows how to support his woman, when you need it. Way to go Joe! :)

Maybe I won't be coming around for the next few months...that way I can miss out on the emotional-ness and tears...I think you should carry your camera with you at all times, and next time you burst into the big, ugly-faced cry, you can take a picture and post it on your blog. That'll give us all a good laugh...but not at you, 'cause we won't want to hurt your feelings.

Oh, I feel ya on the emotional pregnancy thing (not right now for me, mind you). I was such a wreck with each kid. Hang in there.

P.S. Love the new facelift you gave your blog!

I get the same way...actually I think I get more crabby and irrational. Poor Mark, he probably wonders how he ever managed to get stuck with me. And even though I'm not pregnant anymore, lack of sleep seems to cause the same phenomenon! Oh well...I guess we all have our days.

In our family we've always called it a curse cause of course we all cry at everything, but I decided one day to just embrace being emotional- I don't know if it helps or not, but it makes me feel better!! I started crying in the shower this morning cause I thought about having to take Emmie to the vet one day when she was really sick- brother! So just enjoy it and when people say anything about it just cry harder- it'll make them feel bad and that will give you a reason to giggle!

Nice Michael...you just made me so glad that I don't have any brothers!!! Just joking! Like my mom said you just have to embrace the emotional part of crying..I don't mind because I think when you are an emotional person you are happier too...I guess you swing both ways good...if that makes sense! My brain is still fried from being pregnant! I had to give a talk on families when I was 7 months pregnant with Emma...it was horrible I bawled through the whole thing about how happy I was to start my family! GIRLS!!!!
