Had my first hormone meltdown last night


It happened… the uncontrollable sobbing over something so insignificant. I was making ravioli for dinner last night and was pretty excited about it. All I want is carbs and I love cheese, so carbs + cheese is like heaven for me. They were all cooked and ready to be drained when E walked in the door. I timed dinner PERFECTLY which made what happened even worse. As I was carefully pouring the ravioli into the colander to drain them, hot water splashed on my hand and I lost the grip on the colander containing 3/4 of delicious carb cheesiness. They went all into the sick 😦 I looked at our ruined dinner and turned around to look at DH and just bawled. Poor guy had no idea what to do. He kept telling me that it was fine and that he would go to the store to get more and hugging me. Nothing was working, all I did was cry. The crazy ugly cry. I was so hungry that I didn’t want him to go to the store so after I calmed down a little we made sandwiches and that was that. 

About an hour later, we were sitting on the couch watching Game of Thrones and E turned and looked at me and asked if I was ok. When I said yes he smiled and said, “that was pretty crazy… that was the pregnancy hormones, right??” I still didn’t find it all that funny but I just said “I damn sure hope so because that was insane.” This morning I can laugh about it but last night I was seriously heartbroken over my spilled ravioli!!!
Needless to say I will be going to the store after work today to get more ravioli for tomorrow night’s dinner (already have plans tonight) and will be much, much more careful when draining them!

  1. LOL. Awww – Make sure you eat snacks so you’re not so HANGRY next time.

  2. Can I be the first one to say that there’s no use crying over spilled ravioli?

    I’m pulling your leg-I probably would have done the same thing, and I don’t have pregnancy hormones!

  3. You aren’t alone! I burned bacon and just cried and cried…I ruined to blts. It’s the hormones!!!

  4. Oh get ready! The postpartum ones are much more often and ugly! lol
