12.5.1  Sudden changes in feelings

A woman is crying and her family are trying to find out what is wrong.

Pregnancy can make women very emotional. Some women laugh or cry for no clear reason. Some feel depressed, angry, or irritable. Odd laughing or crying, and other sudden mood changes or strong feelings, are normal. They usually pass quickly. But do not ignore a woman’s feelings simply because she is pregnant. Her feelings are real.
