DH thinks I am being daft and hormonal (I'm 7 months pregnant)
I think he is being annoying and if he carries on I will kill him.

He has spent the past two Sundays grumping because he wants different veg with his roast dinner. Between them my DCs will only eat sweetcorn, carrots and broccoli and because there is a limited time on Sunday I just make what they all like. But DH keeps saying he is bored, I have told him to make his own if it bothers him that much but he just says he doesn't want too.

Then yesterday I asked him to go and get some Xmas presents we have a set budget for each DC. I had set aside more money for my eldest two and less for the youngest two who are both 1 so they won't notice or remember and they will get lots off family anyway. DH agreed this with me. But yesterday he decided that it was unfair and spent loads on the youngest two and he bought some stuff which they already have. When I pointed this out to him he sulked for hours and refused to take them back.

But when I complain he says I am hormonal and just dismisses me as some mad pregnant woman. So AIBU or is he?

He's being a petulant child.

He's a child, and a bratty one at that!

You're 7 months pregnant with one year old twins? <faints>. Anyway, he is being a petulant child. He wants different veggies but doesn't want to cook them? Sod him.

But when I complain he says I am hormonal and just dismisses me as some mad pregnant woman. - this is gas lighting.

AND now he has just told me the house is a mess. I pointed out he has been home all weekend too so he should have done something if it bothered him so much. He said he assumed I would do more and went to sulk in his shed.

Lock the shed.

What kungfu said .

Please !

pianodoodle Sun 17-Nov-13 20:54:41

Can you board the shed up from the outside while he's still in there?!

He's being a complete dick.

BrownSauceSandwich Sun 17-Nov-13 20:55:05

He's being a knob.

Mrschocolate Sun 17-Nov-13 20:55:12

I would lock the shed but he would only start banging and then he would wake the DCs and I would be even angrier with him.

YoureBeingASillyBilly Sun 17-Nov-13 20:55:18

Hes a dick. Has he always been like this?

pianodoodle Sun 17-Nov-13 20:55:19

X-post with kungfu

SteamWisher Sun 17-Nov-13 20:55:22

He wants different veg? He's bored? Is he my 4 year old DS?

For fucks sake.

Kewcumber Sun 17-Nov-13 20:56:34

He wouldn't start banging on the shed door if you connected the car exhaust pipe to the shed air vent...

just saying...

not recommending or anything

passedgo Sun 17-Nov-13 20:58:59

It sounds to me as though he is goading you. Any idea why?

Apart from being a knob of course.

FastWindow Sun 17-Nov-13 20:58:59

Find out what veg he hates. Cook those...

Kungfu you've reminded me. I keep meaning to ask someone here, what is gas lighting? Never heard it before, is it an MN term?

KungFuBustle Sun 17-Nov-13 20:59:39

Is this his usual "form"?

FriedPotatoes Sun 17-Nov-13 20:59:51

I'm currently works really hard to teach my 6 year old than when he doesn't like something he should try and fix the problem and not just whine.

Just sayin.

passedgo Sun 17-Nov-13 20:59:57

grin @ kewcumber

Gaslighting

OP YANBU He's being a immature dick.

Mrschocolate Sun 17-Nov-13 21:04:46

passedgo I think he is goading me as well but I don't know why because when I ask he just dismisses me and says it's just my hormones and it's all in my head. It is really pissing me off. He used to get like this if he was tired after work. But he has had Friday, Saturday and Sunday off this week and a lie in till 10 o'clock each morning.
