AIBU to not actually have a problem with this?

DP just got a text inviting him out for a curry for a mate's birthday. Mate has been through a rough time lately, the meal is fairly local to us and is a week night. DP is an occasional, sensible drinker.

However, if PidjChick hasn't already made an appearance i will be 41+4. If he has, chances are we'll have a very tiny newborn.

I said to tentatively accept - unless I'm actually in labour or full-on sobbing with hormones, i think he should go and have fun for a couple of hours. This is our first, and i have family and friends nearby.

AIB either U or completely naive?

Argh! That's a cliffhanger to read over breakfast in the morning! Has MrPidj not been instructed to update then?

Hope all is well, enjoy that lovely baby smile

Was coming on to say I'd be fine with him going but then saw the update!

Good luck, I adored my TENs and cried when the battery ran out!

Oh wow. Good luck OP!

+1 for letting him go unless you are in labour, provided he doesn't drink too much. I gave birth earlier this year just after the Opening Ceremony finished (2am on Saturday) and let my DH go with a mate to the basketball on the Sunday evening (the ticket was mine originally). I had to beg him to go out but I managed fine and the break did him a world of good after a long, stressful labour. I should add I had my DM with me and that was a godsend, can you arrange someone else to be there when he is out?

EugenesAxe Sun 18-Nov-12 04:06:54

Why.... do I not read all the OP's posts? Best wishes! Thinking of you.

EugenesAxe Sun 18-Nov-12 04:04:43

I agree with MrsWolowitz, except I might say if you already have the baby, see how you'd feel on the day about letting him go in. Your DC might be a week old by then and you may be feeling like you could cope alone for a few hours.

He shouldn't fight you though, if you don't want him out.

PurplePidjin Sun 18-Nov-12 03:21:06

Well, i figured it would be polite to update everyone! Clearly, the best way to kick off labour is to start an aibu about something first world that will be a huge drama if you go overdue wink

AmberLeaf Sun 18-Nov-12 03:12:28

Ooh that was an unexpected nice twist to the thread!

PurplePidjin Sun 18-Nov-12 02:53:08

I'm home in bed plugged into the tens machine, dp's trying to get some kip but i think I'm too excited!
