    Sorry but that comes across as extremely offensive!

    LOTS of men drink and are influenced by their mates, no matter their age.

    OP I don't think you were being unreasonable at all. I would feel exactly the same at 39 weeks! My DH isn't the type to go out and only have 2 drinks either...
    Quite seriously, if my DP couldn't control himself from drinking to excess when he needed to, I would class that as having a problem with alcohol. And I'm not saying that as a wowser, I have no problems with alcohol or with people occasionally indulging in too much. But to me that would be the same as drinking far too much at a work lunch. If you have no self control you have a problem.

    I'm not sure we are even on topic anymore....one minute I'm being called irrational for not wanting him to go out one time & the next people are suggesting my DH has a drinking problem because Ive mentioned one reason I had an issue was that he may get carried away and have one to many if the guys he with is with do.

    Geez, he had 2 beers last night at a mates place. Hardly an alcoholic.

    I've resolved the issue we had the other night and all is good. Thanks for the suggestions

    I'm not looking to get into a debate about my DH's minor flaws VS how your perfect DH behaves.

    Turns out he decided he felt a bit guilty and organised to go to his mates house (responsible mate) to play pool & have pizza.

    They only live around the corner.

    He's a great guy, he just doesn't think sometimes lol

    But as a lot of the other girls said, its not a huge deal for a guy to have a night out so close to the due date. It just depends how you feel about it.

    Thanks

    No, I would feel a bit nervous, unless I had awesome neighbours etc!

    Dont feel bad there are plenty that would totally undestand what you mean

    personally I wouldnt be if it was for more than dinner and a drink purely based on what happens if you go into labour and he is drunk....

    I think that either do it before 35w or after bub arrives when you feel settled and ok for him.

    My DH is going out for a bucks when I'm 37 weeks and I'm not happy about that as it is! 39 weeks would be a big no for me. We don't have any family except my dad and stepmum in the country though so I'm kind of relying on him for hospital run and support!

    I wouldn't mind my dh going if he promised not to get drunk. If I went into labour while he was out I know He would have enough time to get home but I would be more concerned about him being able to support me through labour. By the end of the day, if you're not happy with it, he should be staying home. Bad form!
