How would you have reacted to this situation with the OH, answers on a postcard, but I bet you would have reacted the same as me. We went out shopping yesterday and ended up in the baby department of debenhams. Lots of you will know that I haven't been allowed to buy anything for the baby due to the hubbie being supersticious, and I am nearing the third trimester and getting very p****d off about it. I was looking at a baby outfit and do you know what he said? "You only bought an outift last month, and now you want to get another one, you're obsessed!" I promptly burst into tears and had the longest crying session I have had since getting pregnant. Obesessed? No. Maternal? Yes. We didn't really resolve the issue at all for the rest of the day and I went to bed in tears, but we sort of came to a compromise this morning. I felt as if he was really fighting against my maternal, hormonal, nesting instincts. Don't these men realise that we are the deadliest species and they won't win? We have now decided that we will still hold off buying the important stuff like monitors, sterilisers, cot, that sort of thing. But I am allowed to go out with my mum or friends to buy what I call the 'fluffy stuff' like clothes and teddies, as long as I don't wave it under his nose too much. Ho hum. We were bound to fall out over something eventually and it looks like we have found our chosen area of conflict. Oh well. He is still a fabulous husband. He's just been talking to the wrong people with all the wrong ideas thats all. He is still making a massive fuss of me and I suppose that is really important too.
