Did/does this annoy anyone else?

If your SO drinks while you are pregnant. 

I guess my thought is - we are in this together, so if I have to suffer, so do you! Lol. It just feels like he is being a team player and being supportive thru the tough nine months. Anyone else feel the same?

My husband says to me its only 9 months, so why can't he do it too? 

Mind you, we are NOT alcoholics. We socially drink, which isn't too often. But still, I feel left out and like my feelings are not cared about when he goes out and drinks anyways, or worse, in front of me! 

Then again, I AM 7 weeks pregnant and maybe I'm just a B****! Lol!

Our first pregnancy together I told him before we even got pregnant, he would have to stick it out with me on the sober end. He promised he would and then drank anyways. It was really hurtful. Stupid empty promises.

No, it did not bother me. He wasn't pregnant, I was.

It was a ridiculous demand to make in the first place.   And the very fact that you made it, PLUS that it is SOOO stressfull that you cannot drink while he does, puts a lie to your statement that you are NOT alcoholics.

I let my husband, but he only went out on occasion, not a lot at all.. Maybe about 3-4 times my whole pregnancy.

It never bothered me.  I would even pick him up the occasional 6 pack for him.

My DH is a big sports fan and drinks while he watches the game. Its not a big deal to me because I honestly dont drink much even if I am not pregnant. I am not 21 wks pregnant and for Valentine's Day we even went to a hockey game where he drank.. not a big deal. I am happy in our relationship and dont sweat the small stuff. 

Dont worry, pregnancy can make your hormones go crazzzzy! LOL I used to cry that my stomach no longer went under water when I took a bath.. We all have our moments :)
