Readers Respond: What's the Silliest Thing You Cried Over While Pregnant?

I can still remember the moment to this day. It was over 6 years ago, and my husband and I were trying to conceive our first child. We were in that dreaded 2-week waiting zone — nearing the end of it — where any day we could test.

About 2 days before “test day,” I was watching television and a commercial came on for some washer and dryer set … that now came in color. I started bawling, thinking that was, like, the greatest idea ever. I am not a crier, and in that moment my husband (while trying to hold back insane laughter) looked at me and declared I was pregnant (he was right).

Pregnancy made me emotional — so far from what I am usually like. I cried over everything. It was comforting to know I was not the only one who had this symptom of pregnancy. I guess the rush of hormones will do that to you. That commercial was the silliest thing I have ever cried over, hands down. We asked around to find out what the silliest thing you all cried over while you were pregnant.  Click through to read your answers!
