Just need to know its not just us!??!

Anyone else never argued with their DH as much since having a baby?

PS I couldn't find which category to put this post so as I've posted in this one before i thought this'd do!

There's a section on relationships you might find you get more support there.
But to answer your question yes, dh and I are both exhausted and I do find that after over a year of not getting even one full nights sleep and having another child to get to school, dance classes, swimming etc we have become abit snappy and argumentative but try to never show it in front of the children (but we're all human)
I suppose it depends on the arguments as to wether it's a problem.. is it stressed not picking or are you disagreeing on big things that are causing problems..

It's not just you! Normal I think?
Since DC, we bicker and get a bit ratty with each other about really insignificant things. We never did prior to kids. Its A combination of tiredness and the pressure parenthood brings.
Just keep talking to each other, is How we cope and be able to laugh at the silliness of some of the arguments. And say sorry where you have been ott. We find a date night once a week is good too !

When dd was 3 months old and the sleepless nights were particularly getting to me, I remember hugging my DH looking down at our gorgeous daughter happily playing and saying, aww look at our little home wrecker.

I think the number of arguments in those 3 months equalled the number in the 7 years before hand!
