    Lol! Absolutely! And I could hold it over him forever!!

    Men are such sooks!! Hopefully you go into labour on the night he was planning to go out so he feels guilty and you can have a little I told you so moment

    I don't think it would bother me to be honest. Labour usually starts slow and last hours. If he is only 15mins away and knows you are 39 weeks, he should be sensible and not drink to much. But I'm a single mum so I'm use to doing it all on my own.

    You know your situation etc best so definitely stick to what you feel comfortable with. If hubby told me he was stopping at the local for a couple of beers on way home - no issue. But if I was 39 wks and he was going for a session at a pub that was far enough away that would need a cab home...nah it wouldn't sit well with me. And I agree - its easy enough to say just have enough drinks so you don't go over the limit etc, but once at the pub it's a different story. I don't think your OTT at all... As you've said, it's not like he's not been able to go out for drinks through your pregnancy or you've held him captive from having fun for 39 weeks. Bit of a different story with 1 week til due date in my opinion. Let him sook, he'll get over it

    I might just invite his mates here....
    Then I can see how much he has to drink and he's not missing out.

    You ladies are right in saying that it depends on the guy. In the past when he has gone out (even though its not as much as he used to before kids) he has drank too much if he's around the kind of crowd who do. It just hasn't worried me as i wasn't pregnant/heavily pregnant. I've just told him to go to bed & sleep it off.

    As I said before I don't think he would write himself off but I can see him drinking too much if they do.

    I wouldn't have a problem with it. I think some of your reasoning is a little irrational tbh.

    Yes it has! I'm mean and nasty I guess lol

    I think it's easy to say what you would & wouldnt do and to let DH do what he wants, but if you actually are pregnant you have that different set of emotions.

    How is it irrational? I'm just curious.

    He's had the freedom to do what ever he wants in both pregnancies and just once I've suggested I'd like him to skip this night out as I'm 39 weeks.....

    I don't think you are irrational at all..he's had 9 months to go out & has to go right at the end of your pregnancy?? I'd be livid with DH & tbh he wouldn't even suggest it.

    Lola kitty I think your reaction is very normal and I too wouldn't want my hubby heading out when I was 39 weeks!! Even moreso when you have a two year old! Totally fair call by you. I 100 % agree
