The lovely mood swings and pregnancy hormones have started. OK so it actually began last week before I even knew I was pregnant. Out of nowhere I started crying and just could not stop. Tobei got all worried and kept asking me what was wrong. I couldn’t answer him though. I had no clue. Which leads to today, a story I know that you can laugh at because I can laugh now that it is over.
Tobei comes home at lunch today like he always does but was pressed for time today. He had an important meeting at 1 and it was 12:15. As he is rushing to make himself a can of raviolli I am telling him all about the morning. I let him know that even though we have only known we are pregnant for 24 hours the midwife clinic is actually full for our due date so I am wait listed. In the mean time I have called my family doctor and have an appointment Friday morning. He responds to nothing but claims he heard me when I ask him if he did. He shovels his lunch into his mouth and runs out the door. A few minutes later I receive a text that he will talk to work about being able to bring me to the doctor appointment. This is where it all goes down hill.
All I can smell in the raviolli and I want some like bad, really bad. I go in the kitchen open the cupboards and there is nothing. No raviolli, no italian wedding soup, nothing that I enjoy eating. I have a choice of tomato soup or peanut butter and jam sandwich. I lose it. I text him and say “Great there is nothing to eat, guess I just won’t f**king eat”. Oh yes wife of the year award to me. I then go outside and BAWL. I mean hysterical crying. Worse than the baby in the picture and I am having trouble catching my breath. Seriously, I would not lie to you.
I finally go back in the house and find a can of stew hiding behind all the crappy canned goods and made myself some lunch. When I was done eating I sent Tobei another text. It said “I found something to eat and I’m done my pregnancy break down. I am pathetic”. He is such a sweetheart as he replied right away telling me I am not pathetic and to not worry about it. Like seriously how sweet is he? I am so glad he is mine.
So there you have it. The pregnancy hormones have started to show their ugly self. This should be a fun ride. Thankfully I know why it happened and can laugh at myself once the hormones temporarily slide back to normal.
