Partner driving me insane (bit of an unjustified rant post)

Aug 8th, 2018, 21:54 PM   #1
 
Hey!

I'm definitely just being hormonal and completely unreasonable here but for weeks now I have these sudden feelings of irritation towards my partner, it takes every bit of me not to snap at him most evenings and if anything the quieter he is the more that I feel it. The poor guy isn't even necessarily doing anything to warrant it 99% of the time.

I really hope that I'm not the only one to feel like this, I'll be 17 weeks on Friday and it's not easing up in the slightest. Right now I'm trying to get really important things sorted for tomorrow, he's wandering in and out of the room and the pacing about is driving me insane. The more that he does it the more I have to grit my teeth, bite my tongue and try not to tell him to park his butt or find something to do out of my way. I feel like an awful person, these hormones need to calm themselves before I really do turn in to mum-zilla.

I was a complete arsehole when I was pregnant. To everyone everything annoys dme, totally irrational.
Hoping I’ll be more reasonable if I conceive again!

I'm 17 weeks too. My emotions are all over the shop. It's so easy to make me really angry or upset.. Just make sure your hubby knows that you don't mean it 99% of the time. I feel bad for my hubby too.

I don't tend to snap at him, I just feel myself fizzing even if he's just sat in the same room as me. The poor guy doesn't stand a chance.

Do you know what sex of baby you are carrying? It sounds so similar to me with both my girls, everything irritated me. It was quite hard to deal with some days. I'd be grumpy and not even know why. A few friends said they were the same with their girls!

I wish I did! We had a scan this week and they did ask if we want to know, he doesn't want to find out. I think girl (I already have one girl to previous relationship) but he thinks boy. I spend most of my day either ranting under my breath or getting so frustrated that I could cry over the washing not being hung out, it's honestly ridiculous. I know that with my daughter little things would annoy me, my now ex-partner didn't get the brunt as he was never home but my family would drive me mental. I'm hoping for another girl this time, it might explain my mood swings! x

My poor husband is putting up with a lot at the moment. I’m usually quite calm(ish) and rarely cry, I am crying over EVERYTHING right now.

He didn’t put some dishes in the dishwasher a few weeks ago and my meltdown was unbelievable, hyperventilating and everything. I’m also grumpy and tired a lot, so trying to force myself to cheer up, otherwise there is no chance of baby #2 at this rate!!!

try to calm down, take a hot bath and instead of being unkind, just close your eyes and hug him without words,

My partner will leave dishes on the side, he's under the illusion that they can just be left until he gets around to putting it in all at once - usually on his day off. Basically he'd leave them for days if I didn't just put them in myself, I think he thinks they just disappear. Same goes for taking the bin out or doing the cat's litter trays, somehow muggins over here ends up doing them. It's the one thing which riles me up at the moment, especially when he sits and watches me tidy for hours and then tells everyone that "we" tidied the house. Thankfully I'm pretty good at brushing it off and not moaning at him for it, I'm not able to work until my work receives my DBS so cleaning is all I have to do day to day right now. That being said it doesn't mean that I take kindly to him watching me clean and then try to take credit for it.

Try not to worry, he will most likely understand that it's just silly hormones and brush it off. I felt so angry through pregnancy, my hubby wound me up just for existing and I threw a toaster at him one day for saying something which irritated me XD I wasn't myself at all, he learnt to put up with it as I really did find it hard to control myself. I always apologised afterwards but it didn't stop me getting angry again minutes later. As soon as our baby was born I felt like me again and its been fine ever since. Thankfully we laugh about it now lol and it was all worth it. Pregnancy is hard but it will be over before you know it
