Am I being completely mad to be worried DH isn't home?

He went out for some after work drinks. He usually has to be forced into going out by me and even at big occasions usually gets the last tube home (he would never dream of paying for a cab). I haven't heard from him since about eight. If I was out I think I'd mention that it was going to be a late one. Im also 39 weeks prgnant and we have other DC (not that that bit matters particularly, but we arent care free Groovy young professionals!). His phone is off of course.

I'm probably being so melodramatic but I honestly can't remember when he last went out this late and it seems a bit odd that these
Drinks would turn into that (with colleagues who he isn't particularly close with). So I have a sinking feeling that something has happened and can't sleep.

How are things op?

<wanders through whistling. Trying to pretend to mind own business when actually checking if there's any baby news>

Good luck and make sure he's within range when you're in transition.smile

Good luck OP! make him pay for this!

charlietangoteakettlebarbeque Sat 09-Aug-14 12:17:21

Good luck, keep us posted and try not to let what happened spoil the birth xx

All good wishes. Good luck for your labour and here's hoping this experience makes your P get his act together to support you and your baby.

Good luck. Keep us posted. He's home now that's all that matters I think he was being a drunk wonk trying to clumsily be considerate
Focus on what matters. You are going to be a mum. Yey!!

It was daft on his part. But you've got more important lovely things on your plate. That being said, if there's a name you wanted that he vetoed. Might be time to try your luck ;)

Ooooo well that's a good ending all round - good luck with the labour. Make sure your DH is on nappy duty for the foreseeable grin

wheretoyougonow Sat 09-Aug-14 11:09:24

Let it go for your own sanity especially if it's a one off. Good luck with the birth and maybe squeeze his hand a little bit harder...grin

I think he did a classic man trying to be considerate but actually being an arse thing. Thought he would be nice and not wake you up….lovely, forgot to tell you this or charge his phone….idiot!

Good luck with your birth OP

MILLYmo0se Sat 09-Aug-14 09:37:32

Well he#s a dozy plonker ! I can see the male drunken brain after ending up on an unplanned session deciding 'I'm going to be REALLY considerate to DW and not wake her up at this hour cos I'm such a good DH '. No need for you to be embarrassed OP, he's the fool and I'd make sure everyone knew what a twit he was.

realitygone Sat 09-Aug-14 09:34:16

fizzy was that really necessary? What a ridiculous thing to say to an in labour op whose husband has been awol the op clearly says its out of the ordinary so I doubt very much your insinuating comment is even a consideration for her

Icelollycraving Sat 09-Aug-14 09:29:18

fizzy shock not the time for that.

Mumof3xox Sat 09-Aug-14 09:25:59

Op right now you just concentrate on getting that baby out!

Ber2291 Sat 09-Aug-14 09:22:31

Cheers for the affair inference fizzy ouch!

fizzylime Sat 09-Aug-14 09:13:27

I hope that really is what he did. Good luck OP

Wishfulmakeupping Sat 09-Aug-14 09:01:18

Yy to cheeky your DH won't be in any position to argue

Cheeky76890 Sat 09-Aug-14 08:59:30

I think you can name the baby whatever you want

Cheeky76890 Sat 09-Aug-14 08:58:06

Just when you really needed him he was totally selfish. What possessed him not take his phone charger or come home at a reasonable time.

Littlebean13 Sat 09-Aug-14 08:56:26

Your in labour so you have the perfect excuse to give him a good punch and just blame it on the pain wink

jemimarose Sat 09-Aug-14 08:55:55

Thank you for update. 100% right to focus on you and baby. Also that's what friends are for, I'm sure they are touched you turned to them, I know I would be! All the best to you and family.

Think of DH during the pushing bit though! ;)
