Is this normal?! This is our first baby..it's not unusual for us to argue but we've had about 4 huge huge rows in the last couple of weeks..lots of screaming and crying. I'm worried that our poor baby is aware of it already ! We keep swinging from being really excited and happy to being really pissed off with each other. Anyone else had this? I feel like he's being really unreasonable and certainly isn't cutting me any slack for being hormonal...is this normal or are we in trouble?

Probably normal.

We're not arguing but I'm not wanting this baby to come out anytime soon (due this week also, but I don't want him to come out for a few months yet, although I know this is impossible) and I'm very grumpy about it all.

Fortunately dh is being very 'understanding' or we would no doubt be arguing lots grin hmm confused blame the hormones.

I'm for this week and in the past 3 weeks I've had to move twice so me and my husband have been at each other's throats quite a bit. I think its because we are both scared more then anything

could of written this post myself. being induced In a few days.

are you tired? I think ours is hugely linked to lack of sleep. We tend to argue when we are tired and get along great when we are not. smile

I think its normal, things are irritating me far quicker than usual at them moment (I'm due in a week or 2). DH are only getting on so well because he is working away this week (he managed to annoy me in the space of a short phone call last night...I was probably being rather unreasonable to be fair). This is DC4 so DH knows the drill and we don't argue too much (we did with DC1 though!), quite often he'll run me a bath so that he can sit in the garden with a beer for some peace.

I put it down to the hormones, the heat and the fact that it is just so uncomfortable (dropping somthinng on the floor was enough to annoy me yesterday!).

Not long to go now thank goodness!

Thanks ladies...it's just so frustrating. I know he is feeling the pressure and is worried about parenting , money etc but he has such a short temper it is driving me mad...I'm sure i should be the one being grumpy all the time not him!! :-D

We haven't been arguing as such, but certainly not in best mood with each other. Not all the time, just off and on... I'm 39+5 and just fed up, very hormonal.

I think it's all quite normal
