23 Hilarious Reasons Why Pregnant Women Cry

When you're pregnant, your hormones are all out of whack. You actually cry at the drop of a hat and at the most inopportune moments. We decided to ask some real women what made them cry while pregnant, and the response was overwhelmingly ridiculous. Just like pregnancy. Oh, our poor husbands!

"The Cheerios commercials! There's a little girl with her mom and they are eating Cheerios. The little girl asks her mom if that's what she used to eat with her. She responds, 'Yes.'
