Poor DP just wants to show his affection. But right now It's like I want him to piss off for the next 8 weeks and I will call if I need him.
I don't feel close to him anymore and it's pretty heartbreaking. I know I still love him very much but I just hate him all the time, like a resent him for this pregnancy (that we planned!) Everything he does is wrong, or annoying. Even everything I love about him, I hate right now. I can't even talk to him about it because, well, who wouldn't be offended?!
I feel like a mad woman!sad
Did anyone else want to put cyanide in his tea when they were pregnant?
Please tell me this is a passing phase.

Yes. I know just what you mean. It's very normal. But please don't worry. it will pass. I'm very lucky that my dh has been very understanding during both pregnancies but it's still very frustrating. You may find you will be madly in love with him again in a few weeks anyway. Ruddy hormones. It won't last for ever. You could try talking to him. If your diplomatic he may see the funny side.

I seem to remember the conversation I had went something like...." I'm really sorry but i'm feeling really unreasonable today. The hormones are driving me mad and I just want to punch someone in the face. Please ignor anything i say for the next week. I can't help it. I'm going loopy. Please help. I'm finding it really hard to cope. Stupid things are making me want to cry."

I feel the same at times and agree with lucy. I had an honest, light-hearted conversation about how I felt. I think it felt good to get my feelings out and DP was very understanding. Thus was from about 8 weeks and 20 weeks on I am just honest and often describe myself as ridiculous =)

Glad I'm not alone grin

I'm 28 weeks and an emotional wreck at the moment. DH tentatively came up to me yesterday to give me a hug asking "are you feeling any better today...?" which unfortunately for him made me want to hit him grin So you're definitely not alone! I agree that best to have a light hearted chat about how overwhelming everything is at the moment.

My dh apparently has been told that after the sickness stage comes the randy sex kitten stage. He decided to tell me this at 4 this morning when I was vomiting into the loo. I have decided to become celibate as a punishment and told him so. He said I was over reacting. I have buried him in the flower bed. (All true except the last bit).
