Are all pregnant women nuts?
I have a daughter by an ex from years ago, now she was a certifiable loon, so when the dial went up to 11 it was a mad house. I have independant statements signed that she was a loon and it wasnt me. I was starting to question my choices, starting to wonder if it was down to me choosing loons… last night the cost of a bike part came up during the argument about money, the number of bikes in the garage then arose and I’m starting to think about hiding the keys to the garage or storing the bikes offsite somewhere 😉Posted 4 years agoBoba FattMember
The missus is 5 months along and even she described herself as a “hormonal bag of shit”
If you add to that gestational diabetes that is properly getting her down and all the aches and pains that go along with it then I can really blame her. I learned bloody quickly not to moan that she was in a bit of a mood (did it once, massive mistake)Posted 4 years agoyunkiMember
Mrs Yunki was fairly easy going thinking about it
Be supportive, be Superman, but don’t get in her face or wrap her in cotton wool..
Be there and be not there.. Do stuff at the drop of a hat but don’t be a doormat..
Support and encourage and empathise and sympathise but don’t patronise or smother, or imagine that you can understand for a second
In fact thinking back, it’s probably easier if you just take off for a year or two and pay a neighbour to come in and feed her and clean her litter trayPosted 4 years agohot_fiatSubscriber
Mine just became incredibly tired, clumsy, a tad forgetful and baby shopping obsessed.
Just wait to the last few weeks when they start properly nesting. Bolt down anything you don’t want “tidied”.
7 weeks in and it’s all great. She’s still clumsy, forgetful and baby shopping obsessed. I’m too knackered to notice if she’s tired or not. I just assume that she feels worse than me.
Oh and go to bed right now. In fact, if you have any sense you’ll be asleep already. For an insight into sleep patterns check out my posting times since the end of August.Posted 4 years agoacidchunksMember
The mother of my unborn (due April)is a level headed lass most of the time so I’ve not had to deal with too much insanity apart from the occasional crying session.
Although one night last week after I’d cleaned the kitchen, done a load of laundry, made her numerous cups of tea and cooked her dinner (all whilst she’d been sat on the sofa doing nowt) she asked why I was being horrible to her…. 😕Posted 4 years agojimbobrightonMember

Don’t think most blokes really think much about it until the baby actually arrives.
True – it’s abstract for 9 months, then suddenly you’re handed this baby.
This is how I feel – 5 months in and while interested, it doesn’t get anywhere near filling my head with continuous thought.
Was worried it was just me but turns out every dad and expectant dad I spoke to feels/felt the same. phew.
sure it’ll all change soon!Posted 4 years agodavehMember
You’re just at the start of the rollercoaster, you know, the bit where you’re clunking your way to the top, building anticipation, some strange noises, fear. Labour is the bit where you head over the edge. You’re strapped in now so enjoy it, weeeeeee! Worry not though, it’ll be all over in 18 to 23 years (probably). 😀Posted 4 years agopopstarMember
Pregnant lady obviously will be more irritated due to extra inconvinience and her hormones could play up too. You should understand this and not blame her. If you see tantrum just dismiss that bs, let her steam get off.
Tell her that you can forgive her unacceptable behaviour and that you are more concerned about wellbeing of a baby rather her temporary discomfort. There is no need to be doormat just because she is pregnant, but at times you have to give in too.
My wife wouldn’t clown about with tantrums as I wouldn’t take that too serious. There are more important things to worry about, quality sleep, massage after hard day and beautiful things women like to hear.
People are different, so it may not work well with mentally unstable ones … but then you do get early sign message of being with a nutter.
If she is one of those mental cases and behaved like that through pregnancy, you made wrong choice … your baby will be unstable and shouty too. Kiss good bye to your peaceful sleep.
