Women Reveal the Weirdest Things They Cried About While Pregnant | 22 Words

Pregnancy can be a strange and wonderful time in a woman's life. Your body is creating another person all on its own, which, if you think about it, is pretty mind-blowing. And while that process can be filled with joy and wonder, it's also filled with a boatload of hormones which tend to take a toll on your emotional well-being. You basically go insane for nine months. I should know since I was just pregnant myself a month ago. Some days I'd wake up happy and ready to take on my day, and others I'd spend the first few hours sobbing uncontrollably after eating an entire bag of Flaming Hot Cheetos and wondering if Taco Bell will ever bring back Nacho Fries.

So if you've never been pregnant, allow the following 30 ladies to give you an insider view on what it's really like. The major takeaway? Never eat a pregnant woman's food, no matter how hungry you might be.

This poultry problem

After asking people to reveal the silliest thing they cried over while pregnant, this woman confessed that for her it was "the chicken nuggets". Although a rather ambiguous statement, I somehow know exactly what she's talking about. And I feel her pain.

This cheesy catastrophe

Every man should know that when a pregnant woman asks for "two" of something, she means two of the largest quantity possible. If she asks for two M&Ms, bring her two of those family-sized bags just to be on the safe side.

This relatable shark

I never realized how sad this movie was until this very moment. Who among us hasn't done something we've regretted while hungry? But do we deserve to be blown up because of it? I think not.

This dessert dilemma

Been there! Yet another reason why humans should really figure out a way to grow a third arm.

This selfish husband

This guy has clearly never experienced the glory that is a Sausage Egg and Cheese McGriddle Sandwich. And combined with pregnancy hormones, I'd imagine they're about as addictive as crack.

This fantastic husband

Everyone deserves a partner like this. I could cry just thinking about it.

This pathetic picture

I'm guessing this preggo is also extremely Type A. If she saw all the crooked pictures currently hanging in my house, she'd probably have a complete breakdown.

This melon mishap

I hope this poor man had the decency not to tell his severely pregnant wife that it was, in fact, her who ate all of her cantaloupe chunks.

This total tragedy

I'm not currently pregnant, but I would also not deal with this situation well either. Pizza is sacred, and we must protect it at all times.

This strange story

I'm not sure whether the dog was up on the table or if the burrito was, for some reason, on the floor, but either way this kind of seems like her own fault.

This questionable de-frosting method

I'm no expert, but I'd venture to guess that this is neither a hygienic nor relatively safe way to defrost meat. But what do I know?

These legitimate reasons

There are way too many pain reliever options to choose from, so I totally get this. And de-fluffed puppies are one of life's greatest tragedies.

This delicious-sounding cake

In all honesty, I would 100% eat this cake. Salty, sweet, cheesy, and crunchy?! Sign me up!

This brutal betrayal

That's just cold-blooded. How is his pregnant wife supposed to know that he loves her unless he tells her so 300 times per day?

This proud horse mother

If only every horse could get a trophy just for participating and trying their best.

This lonely bird

Those bird bullies! I relate to that poor, lonely bird on a deeply personal level.

This devastating loss

RIP, cake. We all know that fancy cakes are the best kind of cakes.

This terrible toddler

Wait, this woman is having more kids? After having a kid like this? Big mistake.

This littering low-life

First of all, don't throw things out of a moving vehicle. Secondly, don't litter. Thirdly, never, EVER dispose of a perfectly good pastry in a pregnant woman's presence.

This crime against chips

I have to say, I find it kind of adorable that it took this man 2 hours to buy every type of chip in existence except the one his wife wanted. Although, if I were pregnant, I'd find it less adorable and more rage-inducing.

This unkind kitty

Even more evidence of why dogs are inherently better than cats. Change my mind.

This atrocious odor

Husbands of pregnant women: You hold those farts in until you can get to a safe distance before unleashing them. Both for her and your own sake.

This terrible reveal

There's nothing like your husband shaving his beard to remind you of what his face actually looks like. And sometimes it's an unpleasant reminder.

This rude person

Even when not pregnant, this irks me. Let's all make a pact to stop doing this to people, okay?

This frosty foul-up

How many different types of ice are there? Because if there's a superior form of ice that I'm not aware of, I must change this immediately.

This cruel canine

Okay, so I suppose this makes a case for why cats are superior to dogs since they're mostly indifferent about whatever you happen to be eating. However, a cat would walk across your plate of spaghetti without even thinking twice about it.

This mean makeover

A bad haircut while pregnant and already insecure about your appearance? That's just cruel!

These sad puppies

Okay, this one is completely understandable. You'd have to be made of stone not to burst into tears every time you hear Sarah McLachlan start singing"In The Arms Of An Angel"!

This hungry bug-lover

Interesting combination. Next time I experience these two things I'll see how I'm feeling to determine whether this is a strictly pregnancy-related reaction or not.

And lastly, this very real scenario.

Sometimes, that's all it takes. And if you've never been pregnant, you just wouldn't understand.
