4 hours a day (actually 8 hours, but she is lays down for bed at 8pm), 4 days a week I am dealing with a 4 yr old I babysit who is CONSTANTLY fighting with my 2 yr old. The second he touches a toy she screams at him to share it. I am getting really, really, tired of all the fighting and my DH tells me I am being too impatient (while he is up playing WoW on his computer in his closed office).<br><br>
I tell him I am tired, my blood sugars are out of whack, my hips hurt, I get a bit worn down by all the screaming, and I am 7 months pregnant.<br><br>
He replied to me "being impatient has <i>nothing</i> to do with pregnancy", uhhhh what??? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>
Grrrrrrrrrr, men!

Seriously, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">. Sounds like those days are stressful enough to stress anyone out, pregnant or not.

Being impatient most certainly does have something to do with being pregnant. Just ask my dh. My whole family is about ready to lock me up because I am so impatient and grumpy all the time.<br><br>
And you must be a saint to deal with a screaming kid that isn't yours when you are 7 mos pg. I can't even deal with my own 2 and 4 yos.

I'm a teacher and work with people who are DD. My DH was telling people at work what I do and they said, "Wow, she must have a lot of patience." He thought it was so hysterically funny that he would rush home and tell me about it (my 15 yr old daughter also laughed and laughed). I actually do have a lot of patience at work, though less than normal, but I am sooooo impatient at home it's not even funny. I was thinking about it when I awoke at 2am with a baby doing gymnastics in my stomach as well as some heartburn that my husband just really doesn't have a clue... and it's not fair!

Me too! I'm like a grumpy drill sergeant. Even I know that it isn't pretty...

Ooohhh, I probably would've clocked him and said something like "And your remember this from YOUR last pregnancy, I assume?" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
