A tearful Holly Willoughby blamed her pregnancy and hormones for bursting into tears on This Morning a few days ago when she was presented with a huge, gorgeous, pink rose-covered cake and birthday balloons live on air. In front of millions of views on BBC’s morning programme, she simply couldn’t hold back the tears when co-presenter Philip Schofield wished her Happy Birthday.
Why should this happen? Why do normally sane and level-headed ladies suddenly burst into tears at the most unexpected moments just because they are pregnant?
Part of the reason is that soaring levels of pregnancy hormones are present in the body when a woman is expecting a baby. There are so many changes going on that you can’t even see or necessarily understand and this can effect the chances of crying or feeling particularly emotional.
What do to:
- Let it out! Don’t be embarrassed or hard on yourself! You are pregnant and its is a side effect!
- Chat to a friend or family member and talk about it.
- Try to have a rest and try some relaxation techniques to help with the emotions.
