I am going to ram that pregnancy book down his throat.

Wish I had never bloody brought my DP a book about pregnancy. He is now apparently a professor of pregnancy and knows everything there is to know.

I can't do anything without him piping up that I should be doing it a different way. Every single night I get told I need to lie on my left side regardless of the fact the right side is more comfy.

There are loads of other things too and when I question him saying surely I know more about this than him seeing as I am the one actually going through this pregnancy he just replies that the book says do it this way.

I know he is only trying to help and it's cute that he is so excited, but I wish he would give it a rest.

Anyone else have any know it all partners or family?

I just smacked him for you superman he asked what it was for and I said hormones grin

considering just being horrible to him constantly and just blaming the hormones. he will come to regret his obsession with the book grin

My DH has not read any of the books that I got him and whilst he is very compliant, I have to ask for EVERYTHING and since i've been on Maternity leave, he seems to think that I should be doing all the cooking too.

Whilst I would find it too annoying if he told me how to be pregnant, it would be nice to have him understand a bit. Particularly the tiredness and discomfort [am 35+2 with a pretty big baby- measuring 6lb 4 at 34 weeks!]
