Just wondering if I'm being hormonal and unreasonable and wanted your opinions. basically my OH mentioned last night that him and his friends are going to try and arrange to go away for a weekend maybe in May or June. The idea is to go somewhere where one of our friends lives which is about 8hrs drive away from where we live. Our first baby is due in middle of August.
I got a bit upset about the idea of him being so far away for a weekend potentially in June when I'll be at least 30weeks pregnant. Our closes family/friends all live about 4 hrs drive away (we moved for OH's job).
I'm just worried about anything happening while he's away and 1) being alone and 2) him then having to get home when he'd be stressed or maybe not able to drive bec he would have had alcohol.
I know chances are that everything would be fine but it just makes me uneasy. He said I could come with him and see other friends potentialy but as we're already doing that trip once when I'll be 30weeks (for a wedding) -I'm not keen to do such a long journey for a 2nd weekend within one month.
Would you be upset? do you think I'm being unreasonable? I think my Oh just attributes everything to hormones-so I'm not sure whether I'm just being silly
To be honest, I don't think it would really worry me, but it doesn't really matter how other people feel. How you feel about it is what's important. Have you got a friend who might like to come and stay with you that weekend to take your mind off it?
i think as long as he doesn't go away too late it should be ok... Im 34 weeks now and would quite glady get rid of OH for a few days Nothing is likely to happen around 30 weeks so you should be ok! you might even be quite happy to get some time to yourself then
I think my OH thought he could go to T in the Park in july.... our baby is due end of May... Don't think so somehow!
I wouldnt worry about it too much. My OH is going on a weekend fishing trip in the middle of May and I'll be 30 weeks then. Im sure if something happened that there would be someone who could drive him back. I'm sure you'll be fine though
Maybe he is just trying to make the most of it while he can??? He hasnt really got any "ties" at the moment and he wants to enjoy spending as much time with his friends while he can. I know that is how I'm feeling at the moment, and my husband does too so maybe he is like this too??? Hope I don't come across rude saying this, but just judging the situation from what I'm experiencing.
As long as he will be somewhere that you can reach him by phone then I wouldn't feel too uneasy.
WELL i HAVE TO SAY i WOULD BE HURT AND A BIT MAD! BUT THATS JUST ME ...MY PARTNER WOULDNT DREAM OF GOING AT THAT STAGE OF PREGNANCY AND IF YOU DID NEED HIM OR THE BABY CAME 8HOURS IS A LONG DRIVE! SORRY TO SAY THAT BUT THATS MY HONEST OPINION HOPE ALL GOES GREAT FOR YOU AND YOU HAVE SOMEONE WITH YOU IF HE DOES GO
It wouldent bother me TBH. OH went away when I was 31 weeks and I was glad of the peace. If it bothers you could you ask him if he could go some where closer to home. Men just don't think like us. My OH was wanting us to stay at his dads for the weekend so he could go to a football match when I was supposed to be 38 weeks pregnant. I put my foot down at that but she came at 35 weeks anyway.
