I was up at 2 am til about 445 this morning, bc I was hungry, had to pee, just couldn't sleep usual pregnancy stuff.ok not my husbands fault, heres my problem now, I am awake yet again because his alarm went off at 530. It's now nearly 7, why haven't I gone back to sleep might you ask? Well because mr wonderful decided to snooze his alarm not once, not twice, but SIX f*ing TIMES this morning. Who the hell sets their alarm 2 hours earlier than they plan on getting up??!!

on top of that the cats decided now is the time to play, so it sounds like a bunch of elephants running thru the house, crashing into the bedroom door. >:[

My SO is horrible in the morning. He sets 3 alarms and still usually leaves late. Sometimes he will ask me to set an alarm and wake him up. But when I do he says 5 more minutes.. over and over, so I'm up at 4am being his snooze for an hour! Lol.. I quit doing that after a couple times. But still, if he leaves early, its somehow my fault for not making sure he was up lol. He's soo not a morning person!

By letting it go off so many times. I understand that not everyone wakes up quickly, but damn...that's a little excessive. Either get up, or reset your alarm (so its not going off repeatedly). Its not that difficult.

Quoting jenn75:

How was he being inconsiderate? By setting the alarm so he could wake up or by allowing it to go off and not shutting it off fast enough?

Some people need a long time to wake up, some people don't.



Quoting MamaHome:

That's not what was happening here. Her husband was being very inconsiderate. There's a difference between expecting people to cater to you, and having common courtesy.


Quoting disnchntdwife:

 doesn't  it just PISS you off when people ( & cats ) don't change thier lives according to your needs?? 22 years later and i'm still ticked that my hubby slept through my labor while I thought I was going to die!!! One time during a bout of depression while my Mother was terminally ill, I was grocery shopping and I found myself feeling hatred for the happy, smiling people. I would have liked to punch one of them in thier smiling face!! Ridiculous right??? I guess my point is ...those people didnt deserve my anger or resentment anymore than your husband. A big plus for you right now is you can blame it on the pregnancy hormones!! lol


Maybe you can talk to him tonight about not allowing the clock to go off so often. You may get more sleep if YOU set the clock and wake him yourself once, then go back to sleep. Tell the cat ( in a very firm tone ) NO PLAYING!!! If that works film it and start teaching it to talk too!!! Enjoy these moments that you actually have time to be annoyed, there won't be many after the baby gets here. Wishing all the best for you!!!!!

That's why my husband and I don't sleep in the same room. I'm a snooze button hitter big time. I set my alarm very early because I know I will be hitting snooze or accidentally turn it off, so I also have it set for 3 different times just in case.

Eh.. I guess I don't see it as inceriderate. If he's got to be up for work, then he's gotta get up even if he doesn't want to. Sounds like this morning his body just didn't want to get up.
I understand being pregnant and uncomfortable. Not getting much sleep but at least the OP can go lie back down, if not sleep later. Her husband doesn't get that choice.

Not wanting to get up and getting fussed at first thing...I'm sure his day is gonna go great!

MAYBE she can go back to bed... maybe not.

His day would have probably started better if he had just set his alarm an hour later. That's my whole point. More uninterrupted sleep for everyone. I would be exhausted and grumpy too if I only slept in 10 minute increments.

I hate that and I haven't been pregnant for about 10 years. LOL put your feet on the middle of his back when he hits the floor he will get idea but I did that to my ex husband only after weeks of asking him not too.

Im just answering from my own experiance, I can't just set the alarm when I need to get out of bed. I set it early, hit snooze a couple of times, do some internal debating, THEN I get up. Even then before I shower and have coffee I'm not really awake.

This debate is silly. She got upset because her sleep was disturbed and she happens to be pregnant.
I got up and was at work at 6a every day when I was pregnant so maybe that's why I don't sympathize, not sure.
In the grand scheme of things it's not a big deal.
I can guarantee his day would be better if he wasn't bitched at for something that couldn't be helped.
I doubt he was thinking of things to piss her off and decited to try them first thing in the morning.
Since it obvious he didn't do this on purpose, why get upset? All that does is wake you up more by agitating yourself.
If she gets this upset from an alarm how is she going to deal with a baby waking her?
