I've been SO frustrated lately... for almost the last two weeks, EVERYTHING with my OH and I has been a fight.. like literally from the smallest thing to the biggest thing in the world. Not only am I hormonal and irritable and easily upset-able but he's been SO different than he was before we found out... he gets upset and extremely annoyed so quickly and is EXTREMELY reactive to the smallest thing. Its driving me absolutely crazy. Maybe I'm unrealistic but I keep trying to tell him that I want for the next 7 months I want to be surrounded by love and support and ZERO negativity.. and no matter how much we talk about whats going wrong with us we just keep fighting. I'm so sick of it I just want to get along.. we've never fought like this before (we barely even used to fight!)
The latest and greatest annoyance is that he just texted me (he's on his way home from work and I just got home) to let me know that he posted on facebook that we were having a baby. WTF He never even discussed this with me... and I've been very set in not making a public announcement until my U/S and making sure everything is okay. When I pleaded with him to take it down and explained my reasoning (which included that I haven't told my aunt yet and she's always on my facebook) he got an attitude and, even though he did it, was a brat about it.
grrrr I just want this to all END. sorry for writing a novel haha
sounds like he's suffering with "new daddy stress" - my OH was the same way.. he was so uptight! he still is, but he's getting a little more relaxed.. it's tough on a guy, to know they have to start providing for a family.. you know?
I can understand it from your point of view too.. the hormones make us crazy!
try not to get on his case too much..
although, it was rude of him to announce your pregnancy without your permission!
pregnancy puts a lot of stress on relationships.. but it will get better eventually
New dad-to-be stress, sadly. My OH has actually gotten WORSE over time with it, but it should subside with the fighting at least. Just try to remember that pregnancy does effect men too, me and OH used to never fight. Never argue. We got along perfectly great, then as I got more pregnant it has put a lot of stress and moodiness on him.
