We have to visit dh's hometown later this month to complete some paperwork. I am 37 weeks pregnant and exhausted. He hasn't booked a bloody room! and, there's no space at any of the inn's. I could cry.

part of me wonders if he is somehow punishing me (the baby isn't his) but I thought we had worked through our problems, especially since he was spoken to by my friend, G.

AIBU to be angry?!

I've got a full house but my shed is free if you want it.

I must warn you I have a few animals but as long as you aren't allergic you'll be ok. Might even have an old crib lying round if you need, save you packing the travel cot.

Little donkey, little donkey.......

reminds me of a great card we got a few years back of a certain lady on a donkey being led by the man.

"Great. It's Christmas, I'm pregnant - god knows how - and now you tell me you forgot to book a room!"

Your DH is BVVU, you should insist on a luxury room to give birth in! My DH would let me have a whole palace if I wanted - you need to tell DH you expect better! Although speaking of mine, he's been having some worrying ideas lately about finding these weird traveller blokes so he can track down someone else's baby which is all a bit weird but no-one's perfect.

Well you don't sound very meek or obedient. hmm

Don't you know you're meant to agree with strange men deities instruct you to do something?

gordyslovesheep Wed 05-Dec-12 13:17:51

it must have been a shock finding out you where expecting

I have a manger Moses basket you can take with you if you need one.

I know goldplated's place, its round the back of the travelodge. She has straw for bedding though, always sets my hayfever off and very scratchy.

I hope the bad feeling gets sorted between you and your cousin. Your DC and her DS could grow up to be great friends if everyone keeps their head smile

Haha Gordy.

Gordy grin

alwaysawake, really? how strange. is he some sort of politician? I heard that the gov were cracking down on families...

LRD, blame the hormones!

cheekybaubles, oh THAT one. next to the sheep field?

MyNutcracker, I know. things were quite iffy for a while. and thats not even taking into consideration my parents' reaction. they had saved up for my wedding and everything.

ImmaculateTeen Wed 05-Dec-12 13:25:57

gordy, ah, you're one of my FB friends!

Groovee Wed 05-Dec-12 13:26:16

Oh dear, do you HAVE to travel at over 37 weeks pregnant? Can't you just stay home?

alwaysawake Wed 05-Dec-12 13:31:47

Immaculate - yes, he's very high up and don't worry, he's got nothing against families per se AFAIK, although the IL's are VERY odd - he's just got this weird idea that someone's kid is going to take his job one day. This kid's supposed to be some massive up and coming bigwig though so don't worry, if your DH can't even afford the BethleHilton then your dc has nothing to worry about, I'd bet my life on it wink

MrsMerryMeeple Wed 05-Dec-12 13:34:25

Hmm. Yes. I've heard the authorities are preparing some aweful family planning legislation! Banning first born sons! Don't know why there hasn't been an upcry about it on here before...

Acekicker Wed 05-Dec-12 13:35:25

I think it's best to try to relax, making plans too far in advance, won't help you in the long run. Who knows what's around the corner after the birth in anycase. My advice would be that when you set off to DH's hometown you take with you anything of sentimental value or stuff that's really important to you, depending on how things pan out after the birth it could be a while before you're back home.

I can send you a swaddle if that's helpful. Hope you won't have too many visitors straight after.

ShakySingsMerryXmasEveryone Wed 05-Dec-12 13:38:32

Ha, ha!

But what sort of present would you buy for a baby born at this time of year? My 3 clever uncles have got some ideas, but I think they are a bit odd to be honest.
grin

ImmaculateTeen Wed 05-Dec-12 13:40:29

the new ruling about first born sons is just weird!

Always, you may be surprised, after all, I have high hopes.

thank you all so much for your offers of help, I shall remember this...

ImmaculateTeen Wed 05-Dec-12 13:41:20

shaky, I do have a wishlist for mothercare, I'd rather something useful, tbh.

Sallyingforth Wed 05-Dec-12 13:43:41

I'm very worried for your baby OP.
He's going to come to a very bad end.
