36 weeks today after 5 MCs, and need to take a chill pill... Everything is making me stressy, and I feel like chucking saucepans at DH! Please tell me this is normal, and funny stories will be really appreciated as I need to get my sense of humour back smile

Not quite as far as you (31+2) but I go from being teary eyed and coo-ee over my OH one minute to screeching gerrrrofffme don't touch me and hating his bloody chewing lol. Poor bastard. He was eating more than one chip at once and I thought that was uncouth and was grrrrrr but kept quiet. Only the cat doesnt bother me atm. I think you are normal!

Lol. I'm only 18wks and the last couple of weeks all I see when I look at my DH is his overgrown beard and it's driving me insane! Literally it's like I've chosen his beard as my hate point and everything about it annoys me. But he refuses to shave it, so I refuse to go near him until either my beard repulsion goes or he shaves wink so I think it's perfectly normal!

Ha! I was watching him talk on his phone yesterday and thinking "Don't tap your foot like that! You look like a twat!"

oh was eating an apple a few weeks ago n i wanted to take it off him and throw it in the bin. i didnt say anything just sat quietly seething willing him to hurry up and finish the apple grin

theonewiththenoisychild Tue 03-Feb-15 16:05:03

sorry i meant noisily eating a apple not just eating a apple grin he sounded like a washing machine

My DH gets up before I me in the mornings, recently his sniffing, shuffling and rummaging round the bedroom is driving me scatty. I have got to the point I am actually covering my ears so I don't grrr at him smile

I love it! It's making me feel sooo much better...

misseskimo Tue 03-Feb-15 21:51:05

Lol! It makes me feel better too, I had heard stories of women "going off" their DP/DH but felt so guilty when I started doing it myself!

Kemlex13 Tue 03-Feb-15 22:16:07

Haha 34 weeks and right now I bloody hate him! I hate his breathing, snoring, eating, speaking urgh even when he texts me he pisses me off.

He's been a moody shit since Saturday, we have 2 other kids, I'm supposed to be on bed rest yet seem go not stop. I enjoy letting the kids torment him. In a nice way lol it gets better (I hope)

i was cleaning the bathroom yesterday as i wanted a relaxing bath. i asked oh to get dc's pyjamas and he didnt so dd came pestering me so i shouted down to him and he said in a minute he was probably pi**ing about with his computer so i snapped at him. i put dc's to bed and wr had a blazing row. now im sat here thinking how i want to rip his head off for all the horrible things hes said to me sad

I've had four dcs and have wanted to kill dp through every pregnancy. By the fourth he would say I know the real buttwing is in there and she will come back once the baby is out.
Which of course used to make me even more cross a bit like when someone tells you that you're pre menstrual. After the babies have been born dp has admitted I was an evil bitch during pregnancy and he wanted to tell me to fuck off to the far side of fuck grin

LorelaiVictoriaGilmore Wed 04-Feb-15 14:02:08

The other day (after I had just finished throwing up for about half an hour after a thirteen hour day commuting/at work) my dh looked at me in genuine confusion and said, "You always said you wanted children. I'm just surprised you're not enjoying this more." And then I killed him.

tannyLoo Wed 04-Feb-15 14:44:13

I think we've really tapped into something here! DH took the dog for a walk this morning and I was cross with him for leaving the utility room door open, letting all the cold air in. And leaving me at home on maternity leave with 3 yr old DS with a cold while he swans off to his fucking piss easy job no, it isn't really highly stressful and underpaid, oh no.

Until this last week I thought we were soul mates, now I'm thinking widowhood must be quite nice.

Thank god I only have a few weeks to go!

I am laughing so much at this thread!

hazel88 Wed 04-Feb-15 16:26:52

Me too hahaha! grin

I hate it when he breathes.
I literally can't stand it when he breathes too close to me.

When I was pg with dd1 (she is 11 now) I was so sick that I banned all scented shower gels, deodorants etc etc from the house, I made a real fuss at the time. I cried because my mum bought me a luxury orange shower gel for my birthday.
Years later I asked Dh why he always bought "plain" toiletries...the ban was so severe that he had never started buying "smellies" again!

Meplusyouequals4 Wed 04-Feb-15 17:24:46

I'm 39+4 and I cry at the littlest thing. today it was cos DH asked if I was OK blush I'm fed up and bored so I just burst out crying.

yesterday I cried cos DD got upset cos she didn't want to have her hair washed.

LinzAJ Wed 04-Feb-15 20:36:25

This thread is great, I feel normal for the first time in weeks!!! DH is safe as I have stopped hating him for just breathing, I'm 40+9 so over the worst I think.

Now I cry cos I have to leave my dog with my friend whilst we go to hospital tomorrow to be induced!!!

onepieceoflollipop Wed 04-Feb-15 20:42:15

Ooh exciting Linz...hope all goes well tomorrow x

tenwrigglywigglycaterpillars Wed 04-Feb-15 20:47:22

I found DH really irritating too so I'd grump at him aaaaallllll day long. But I was also insatiably horny (raging hormones) so the poor man didn't know if he was coming or going (ha ha ha!)

This pregnancy dh had been annoying me the whole way through. (Along with men in general.) last pregnancy I loved dh more than anything and didn't want to be apart from him. This time I get annoyed when he is in the house!

Fluffeh Thu 05-Feb-15 06:32:19

Yesterday I shouted at dp for breathing in the car when I felt sick. His breath isn't objectionable I just could feel it and it was making me want to vom.
I take my irrational anger out on him as he sleeps by poking and elbowing him when he snores a little harder than I need to :D.
