 Can they be as emotional as women??

>>>My baby daddy has been taking things so personal since i been pregnant. For instance, i have been really grumpy lately due to my hormones being kind of crazy. He is now upset at me for not being happy that he is helping with breakfast, packing my lunch for work, massaging me. I am thankful, it is not like i do not say Thank YOU. But i can not be happy all the time. I am tired, aching, feet do not fit in shoes lol, and just all together ready to have our baby.

>>>In my view i think he is being kind of a baby. I am going through pain, and a lot of changes to my body. He should understand all this, but he has not since the begining of my pregnancy. He gets mad and says i will just let you go, see you whenever, probably the day he comes. I am like really? Man up and be there for me through this time. I try really hard to be calm all the time but sometimes after a long day of work i am not in the mood to be joked with.

**What do you all think? Am i the wrong one? Or does he just not understand where we come from?

You both sound like you need to give each other more respect.

 Its hard right now for me to respect him, i admit. He has been off and on with jobs lately. I been working 40 hours a week since we met. Also we do not live togehter due to him having interest in other women. Just think it will take time for me to gain his trust back. I jguess maybe its time i just give him space, i rather be alone than fight !

Men dont really understand the stress of being pregnant, both physically and emotionally. But I do think a thank you from you to him once in a while will be appreciated.

I just don't think guys are prepared! I warned DH when we first found out I was pregnant because I didn't know how i was gonna be! But I didn't really get super irritable/testy until the last few weeks of my pregnancy anyway.
