Pregnancy hormones can do a number on your emotions, and the highs and lows you experience can be downright dramatic -- you may cry for an hour because your hubby ate all the Ben & Jerry's. Here, real moms share their funniest flip-outs.

Fast Food and Furious
When I was 6 months pregnant, I cried because McDonald's forgot to give me my McFlurry.
Courtney Barnett; Arlington, Texas
I was preparing a recipe for puppy chow, a snack made of peanut butter, chocolate chips, cereal, and powdered sugar. When I went to shake the cereal and sugar together in a bag, the bag broke and the contents went everywhere. I sank down in the middle of the floor, covered in powdered sugar. It's funny now, but it was not at the time.
Katy Charlotte Hening; Salem, Virginia
We went out to eat and I cried when we sat down because I missed my dog -- who I had just seen five minutes before.
Bobbie Lipe; Ottumwa, Iowa
In a Pickle
I cried because my mother-in-law poured out the pickle juice from a jar that had no pickles in it. I wanted to drink it!
Meagan Erickson; Champlin, Minnesota
A Sucky Situation
I cried when the vacuum stopped working. Then I made my husband buy me ice cream.
Amber Smith; Louisville, Kentucky
Out of the House
I cried every time my husband left the house. I didn't want him to leave, even if he was just going up the street!
Crystal Jones; Gulfport, Mississippi
When I was 5 months pregnant, a bug splattered on my windshield. All I could think was, I killed a bug.
Cindy Carter; Flushing, New York
One night, when I was 2 months pregnant, my husband went to pick up dinner. He accidentally got me pad Thai chicken instead of pad Thai beef, and I cried.
Kelly Templer Aron; Wheeling, Illinois
I cried when my hoop earring broke. There was nothing special about the earrings; they weren't even expensive. I'd bought them at Target because I like hoops and they were reasonably priced.
Beth Ann Caulfield Batewell; Barnegat, New Jersey
The Last Straw
I cried because I lost the straw to a Capri Sun.
Ariana Allard; Fort Smith, Arkansas
Slice of Life
I burned my grilled cheese, then sat on the kitchen floor and cried. I had used the last piece of cheese.
Lindsay Miller Tomko; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
I was on my hands and knees cleaning the kitchen floor and couldn't get up again, so I just stayed there and wept!
Fiona Clements; New York City, New York
In a Lather
I cried every time I got in the shower because my shampoo (which I normally love) smelled awful to me during pregnancy. My husband bought me three different kinds and I couldn't stand any of them!
Adayla Startler; Martinsburg, West Virginia
I made an amazing dinner for my husband one night, and when we went into the kitchen to clean up after we'd eaten, I realized I had forgotten the salad. I just sat there and cried while saying "I forgot the salad!"
Miranda Hatch; Lemoore, California
I once sobbed over a magazine article featuring a crab sandwich from a restaurant in South Carolina. I live in Texas.
Sahel Chen; Houston, Texas
