I want my mommy
January 10, 2014 3:05 PM   Subscribe

We're pregnant! For the first time. Just found out this week. I feel the uncontrollable need to watch emotional tear jerker youtube videos about moms/parenthood. Example 1 Example 2. What d'ya got for me, Metafilter?

Call The Midwife is the obvious choice if you have Netflix. (Though I realize you asked for youtube recs.)

Okay it's a video, but of a song. Helen Reddy's You and Me Against the World. Mom used to sing this to me when I was small. I can't listen to it without wailing...and my mom isn't even gone.

OK, this is NetFlix rather than YouTube, but: shortly after mr. muffins and I got pregnant, I wound up watching this episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine where Chief O'Brien's daughter gets lost in a time-hole and comes out 10 years older. Then he and Keiko have to painstakingly get to know her all over again. It made me cry my eyes out.

Forever young pampers commercial is great.

Here's a youtube rec that's a trailer for a movie. Makes me tear up even thinking about it, but I'm a sentimental fool for my (ever growing) babies.

Famous Monster, and all, you're killing me. We're almost 18 years in and I haven't gotten over this yet. Expect a long (happy) ride. And CONGRATULATIONS!!

Not sure this one's a tear-jerker, but it's pretty dang cute.

The P&G Olympics "Thanks Mom" commercial from 2012 is equally tear inducing / awesome.

Here you go.

Watch this amazing video of a baby being washed by nurses at a hospital in France, set to vaguely Japanese koto spa/new agey music. It shows technique and is incredibly peaceful and beautiful. It probably won't jerk tears, but it will make you feel very zen about your future.
