noted to add

Let me just say that you KNOW you're hormonal and excited when you get teary-eyed watching a shortish labor & birth instructor stand in front of a class squeezing a weird red and white crocheted bag thing (meant to stand in for the uterus) until a strangely dingey baby doll pops out. You also know that you're totally crazy and anticipating impending parenthood when the graying instructor places the grimey baby doll on her belly, simulating what is going to happen in the labor and delivery room once the baby is born-- and all you can think of is THERE'S THE BEAN! and HEY! GET THAT HAND OFF OF MY BABY!

For all of those who have walked (or waddled) down this path before, none of what you have reported is strange. We've all been there. For instance, I would cry (no sob) when people would win on game shows. Sentimental commercials on TV would get me all choked up and teary. Enjoy the opportunity to openly cry and blame it on The Bean and the hormones. Non-pregnant, overly emotional women are simply thought to be cuckoo! Have a happy hormonal day!
