Five things I have learned about pregnancy hormones

25 weeks, 4 days pregnant
- The are real.
- Like in-your-face real.
- They are way worse than period hormones — being a bit cranky or teary before you get your period is NOTHING compared to the gut-wrenching emotions of preggo hormones.
- They make you cry during every third song your iPod cranks out, because there is a slight reference to love … which makes you think of your baby and your husband and OH GOD, I NEED A KLEENEX! *SOB*
- Oh, and that commercial with the little boy who applies for the job at the restaurant? And the manager’s all, “You’re too young to work here! Shouldn’t you be playing hockey?” and the boy’s all sad and says, “Yeah, that’s what I’m trying to do.” And then the voiceover’s all solemn about how so many families can’t afford for their kids to play sports? I think I’m crying again.
