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?!

Have you tried innkeeper.con they can rustle up space for you?
I'd hope Gabriel would bring you a stonking gift after almost wrecking your marrage?

cheeky its got cracking reviews on Trip Advisor though! In fact, we are overbooked on the 25th of this month!!

Ha ha Fobbly grin

It took about five posts before I realised this was a joke blush blush

I agree purr

I think you should ask Jeremy Kyle for DNA tests and double lie detector, it is the only way to solve a problem in this day and age!

Do the paperwork on line - then feet up to eat pineapple and some perineal massage.

TBH I think you are being a bit mean to your Dpartner. He is standing by you, even though you are up the duff with another mans child. Not every man would be so understanding.

Yes YANBU to think that he should have sorted the room earlier but he has probably needed the time to get his head round the whole idea. In his eyes it appears you haven't even been honest with him. Not slept or been touched by another man! I think he's a saint for even hanging around.

YABU

OP I hope you have been onto the CSA. The real father has to pay for this.

I wouldn't be too keen to offer hidden you will have Herod's men on your doorstep in no time...

You can stay at mine, but I want a share of the proceeds from Hello Magazine grin

Ain't it grand that two thousand years ago some woman remains a virgin but miraculously becomes preggo so we decide it MUST be the son of god, yet if anyone tried that these days they'd be on Jeremy Kyle within half an hour of a BFP???

ShakySingsMerryXmasEveryone Wed 05-Dec-12 13:52:24

Right, I'll sent my 3 clever uncles of to mothercare, men are bloody rubbish at choosing presents grin

WingDefence Wed 05-Dec-12 13:47:09

I think your DH sounds rubbish TBH. Are you sure he's going to hang around after the baby's born?

cheekybaubles Wed 05-Dec-12 13:45:10

Yes immaculate. That place smells rank, you might want someone to bring you some Frankincense to help mask it?

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.

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

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

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...

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.

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

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.

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...

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
