Pregnant Woman Breaks Down Crying Over Disney's Dumbo
A pregnant woman, 22 weeks in, loses her emotional control over the song "Baby Mine" from Walt Disney's animated classic, "Dumbo". She found the song while making a playlist for their future child.
The husband is clearly having a field day with this sight, since men can’t really understand what in the world is going on in their wives’ heads with all those hormones soaring through their bodies. But that song truly is emotional and you don’t necessarily have to be pregnant to feel a little tingle in the back of your throat.
Ironically, those soaring hormones are a pregnant woman's best friend -- and her baby's lease on life. Human chorionic gonadotropin, or hCG (which rises sharply in the first trimester, then dips and levels off around four months), keeps the embryo firmly implanted in the uterine lining. Progesterone and estrogen (which increase throughout the nine months) help sustain the pregnancy and cause the buildup of nourishing blood vessels.
"This hormonal bath, which is so beneficial to the baby, is sometimes very hard for you to take," says Lucy Puryear, MD, director of the Baylor Psychiatry Clinic, in Waco, Texas. hCG, for example, may cause morning sickness, and estrogen and progesterone are often linked with moodiness and tearfulness.
It’s not just the motherly stuff that makes pregnant women bawl their eyes over. This expecting mother could not control her tears of happiness as she passed the Symphony bars in her local Smith’s shop. And of course, she got zero support from her husband!
