How to deal with my pregnant wife?

My wife is pregnant with our first child and she is driving me crazy. She is not handling the pregnancy well; she is always in a bad mood. She is always screaming at me for little things. For example, yesterday we got in a big argument because I brought the wrong milk; I really can't stand her anymore. I have even told family members that I want to leave her. However, they tell me that she is in a bad mood because of her pregnancy and that after the baby is born she will be back to normal. The thing is that I think I am starting to hater her.

  • That's a tough position to be in, I am sorry. You certainly do not want it to continue at least as much as you can help. You do not want to end up resenting her, it definitely is the pregnancy but that does not give her the right to treat you like a punching bag, but when my nephew was born my sister in law was like this, my brother was just as bad but I remember her saying that at times she felt like she was in a daze, as if she wasn't herself, and when I lived with them their fights were HORRIBLE. So she may not really realize how awful she is. I think you should say something or have someone else doit for you because you may be in too deep- simply saying "hi" may set her off. Or go to counselling, or take a break from each other, go away for a weekend or stay with friends for a few days just to get some perspective for you both. I hope this helps, good luck

  • Her hormones are all over the place at the moment, she should be fine once the baby is born. Try to be there for her as much as you can and don't do anything to provoke an argument. She's stressed too, she's carrying a tonne of weight and her body must ache too. Hopefully shell cheer up, in the meantime why not do something romantic to show you still care :) Women sometimes get self conscious about their figure when they are pregnant and sometimes after pregnancy. Show her you still find her beautiful and care for her.

  • Its just her hormones but think of it this way

    you should not leave your wife because its your baby that she is carryint and do you think she likes her emotions being played with I'm sure she loves you or else she would not put herself under all this stress

    So next time she yells at you just hold her and say "sorry baby I lappsed ill go and get you the milk you want k shhh. " and get her whatever she wants and then kiss her and problem solved

    • problem solved? that's the kind of cowering behavior that'd make her lose all respect for him

  • She might be very apprehensive and her hormones are on a roller coaster. Try to find some classes or groups of couples that get together helping to deal with first pregnancies. It might help soothing her and see other pregnant women acting more secure and relaxed toward their husbands.

  • Hard drinking?

  • Video record her so she can see the things she is saying and make an effort to reign in her hormone-influenced behavior. Also, learn some relaxation techniques together -- light exercise, mutual massage, sex, healthy eating, etc.
