I have the same issues!! Although, my husband really doesn't get mad at me (but he does sometimes when I'm extra squirmy!). I usually end up on the couch a couple days out of the week because I feel bad for moving around so much, getting up to go pee and then re-situating myself, etc. He should be a little more patient with you though, especially since you have TWINS on the way!! I can't imagine how uncomfortable you get, especially with SPD Why doesn't HE sleep on the couch? Afterall, you are at risk for going in to labor earlier and you have a painful condition.
I always just tell my husband "chill out, I need to situate myself and the baby is making me uncomfortable... you just don't understand." He usually just shuts up then, because he really doesn't understand what we are going through! When I do end up getting comfy, then the baby starts moving and kicking loads and then I get restless legs as well. Ugh, can't wait till baby time is here!!
Hang in there hun, hopefully your husband stops being cranky and understands what you are going through
Omg hun, HE needs to be on that couch!!! Not you! My OH complains about that stuff too, but like you I'm agony with SPD and baby's very active during the night! But not once have I felt I need to sleep on the couch! OH comes down here if he can't sleep! Xxx
First, I can't get over the fact that he gets to sleep from 11pm to 11am. Who has that luxury? Second, there is no way in hell I would allow my husband to tell me to go sleep on the couch while pregnant, let alone pregnant with twins. My husband started sleeping on the couch before I got put on bed rest and has been there for about 4 months. I do not sleep well at all during pregnancy and am tossing and turning all night, getting up to use the bathroom numerous times and sometimes watching tv in the middle of the night. My husband has to get up at 5:30am for work, so I told him he would probably get a much better night's sleep on the couch. At first he wasn't too happy about being sent to the couch, but now he's okay with it because he understands how uncomfortable I am. Definitely do not allow your husband to banish you to the couch ever again. Tell him to go to the couch.
Bloody hell. I really can't understand why there are some many OH on here that are so nasty to there wives/girlfriends. I just can't understand why you lot put up with it. I mean OH is certainty not perfect (and neither am I), but I would not let him treat me like that.
Yup. I agree- I wouldn't give up my bed. Hubby gets annoyed and woken up by all my bathroom trips and snoring. Apparently I snore very loudly now. He migrates to the sofa when he wakes up. Sometimes he sleeps in bed all night, other times he sleeps on the sofa all night. He's pretty understanding about the whole back pain, so the couch would be a bad move for me. Hope you get the bed!!
Kick him to the couch! We're lucky and have a bed for us and a spare bedroom so neither one of us gets the couch but hubby knows that when I need the extra space he's the one getting kicked out of the room.
