    Sorry for the length...

    So my DH is a very attractive man, I am fully aware I lucked out in the total hottie department. And in the past when girls at bars have hit on him it hasn't bothered me because not only does he blow every single one of them off, but i am totally secure in our marriage and know that he loves only me. The only time I've ever gotten jealous pre-pregnancy is when his employee's get crushes on him, and it never fails that at least two girls will get crushes on him (he manages a restaurant and is the kinda boss where he's friendly and joking and respectful), I mean one girl even got mad at him and refused to talk to him for two weeks because she was "completely in love with him and can't believe he hasn't left your wife yet" (now the twisted part of this is I worked with this girl for a few weeks before my DH transferred to her restaurant and she was so sweet to me and knew who my DH was, what a two-faced witch. but I digress) he's had employees stalk him before too. But even then I usually got angry as opposed to jealous because he never tried to hide these things from me and the girls were making fools of themselves trying to break up a happy marriage.

    Anyway, for the last few weeks I've gotten SUPER jealous of females giving my DH attention. One of his employees who used to date DH's bf asked if he was going to karaoke tonight, which is a totally innocent question but I immedietly wanted to smack this girl. And DH is transferring to a new restaurant on wednesday so there is this whole new slew of girls who could/will develop crushes on him. I'm worried I'm going to snap at him or one of his employee's since I'm soooo jealous lately and sooo hormonal.

    It's stupid, because he's never given me reason not to trust him and is in fact the perfect loving, doting husband who is so excited to be having his first child. I guess this isn't so much a question as a venting and sharing of feelings. Thanks for listening...

    :hugs: You aren't alone. My husband has always worked with tons of girls that flirt with him constantly as do customers. He is in foodservice too. I have gotten a little suspicious of some of his current coworkers, but haven't really gotten jealous because for one, most everyone he works with anymore is really old or really fat or really stupid so he would never be attracted to any of them, and also because I know he would never do anything or even want to. He just isn't attracted to other women. He's one of those men that doesn't like porn at all, even when I try to get him to. I did used to get jealous before the pregnancy though, probably because he used to work with a lot more high school and college girls who were always shoving their boobs at him. His coworkers used to change frequently too, but they've had a pretty stable workforce for the past year almost so that's probably part of it.

    If I were you, I'd probably be just as jealous with him moving to a new place where there are all new girls to flirt with him. I find it makes me feel a little better if I get myself all dolled up and drop in on him at work once in a while when I'm starting to get jealous. And I make sure every girl there sees me and sees us being affectionate and can see how in love we are!

    What is it about food service that it churns out all the hot men? lol

    I think I'll stop by his new store later this week in my cutest maternity dress and make sure everyone sees my bump and sees me kiss him. Thanks for that, it'll definately make me feel better.

    Aw ladies, I really feel for you. I am not usually the jealous type but have been known to have my moments. My OH is a soldier and very confident and good looking. He has never had trouble getting women and girls radiate towards him. But now I'm pregnant I actually feel more relaxed because I can't help but think "well you clearly have no chance as I'm carrying his baby!"

    I like the idea of you going there all cute and showing your bump whilst giving him a kiss. Staking claim is quite important to us ladies I feel!

    i got a little jealous last week as i dont work, im home all day with the kids, and hubby works all week, well there is this girl who he works with, and at 6. 40 in the morning just before he went off to work she text him on his personal phone from her personal phone something to do with 'work' now i have always been fine with him working with her and never felt any reason to get jealous, as my hubby as only ever had 1 other (very long) relationship, which ended when the ex cheated on him, and i know he would never cheat on me as he hated it when it happened to him,

    but for some reason i couldnt help but get all wound up inside, but left it inside as i knew deep down nothing is going on, well friday he worked over time as this girl requested that he did the job as no-one else did as good job as he does. he went in and said to me he will be home by lunch time, as this was our only day at home together without the kids. well by half 1 i text him in a bit of a snotty mood saying 'so much for you getting home by lunch time, ' and with that he text back saying im leaving now, and for some reason i thought for a split minute he had been off galavanting with her, i dont know why.

    I DONT LIKE THESE NASTY PREGNANCY HORMONES. GRRRR
