Pregnancy can be a beautiful thing, some moms even experience a pregnancy 'glow,' but for the miracle that making a new life is - getting through those nine months can be pretty emotionally rocky. Women can feel like they are going nuts from all the mood swings brought on by all the pregnancy hormones and for the people around them, it can be hard to keep up.

One of the many hormonal side-effects is crying over the most random things. According to Lucy Puryear, M.D., psychiatrist and author of Understanding Your Moods When You're Expecting, this is a staple of the first trimester in particular. "Estrogen and progesterone are skyrocketing at the beginning of your pregnancy," she explained to Parents magazine, "The changes have big effects on your mood. You can be tearful one minute and happy the next."

To get an idea of just how major these mood swings are a Facebook group decided to ask women to share the silliest thing they cried over during their pregnancies. Scroll down to check out the ridiculously hilarious answers and don't forget to upvote your favs!

The first trimester is marked by 'tears and forgetfulness', according to Parents magazine. "You're wearing your emotions on your fingertips, so you're much more reactive to everything," Jennifer L. Hartstein, Ph.D., a family therapist in New York City tells the outlet. "After your meltdown, you can get freaked out, thinking, What is wrong with me? This will get you upset all over again. Just remember that it's normal, and try to laugh it off and move on."

Ever heard of pregnancy brain? This occurs in the early stages of pregnancy and is the result of sky-high levels of progesterone or the "calming hormone." Dr. Puryear told the outlet, "When I was pregnant with Parker, I once put my older son Peter's Legos in the refrigerator, and then I tried to serve him a cup of keys to drink!" says Caroline, a mom of two who lives in Oklahoma City.

Don't worry about all the tears because the second trimester delivers unbridled giddiness! Morning sickness dissipates and you begin to feel the baby move. It is possible that instead of spontaneous crying you will experience spontaneous giggles. In addition, you are more likely to be "in the mood" frequently thanks to all the blood pumping through your body.

Thought the blues were over? Well, it all comes back around in the third trimester, which is marked by crankiness and power-nesting. The euphoric stage ends and pregnant women find themselves crabby and uncomfortable. There is an increase in oxytocin, the nesting hormone, which can manifest into powerful urges to clean and organize.

Totally understandable - especially if you've run out of Chocolate!

So how do you deal with all the ups and downs?! First, take comfort in knowing you aren't alone and that the out of control hormones are all a part of the process. Talk to other moms or soon-to-be moms for some emotional solidarity and advice. You can laugh or cry together. "If you're crying consistently and feeling down for more than two weeks without any pleasurable moments in between, or feeling worthless or hopeless, ask your healthcare provider for help," says Dr. Puryear. Postpartum depression can begin even before babies are born.

Sounds more like she was really crying from missing him and that's just what set it off.
