Um.. Not really annoying I guess, but when the contractions were really intense I was holding his hand and screaming (1st baby and was induced so it was horrible).
So Dh asked me 'honey, could you, um, hold onto my arm and not my hand coz you're hurting me'..
I just turned to him and told him off 'what, you think you're in more pain than I am???'

Mine asked the Midwife (ever so politely) would she please mind showing him how to read the trace Monitor/contractions machine and how it all worked, to which she very kindly obliged and so there I was in full blown contractions whilst DH is having a 'lesson/tutorial' on the equipment and then when he was up to speed on the machine and how it worked and could actually read what the print out was and read the contractions etc, he then spent the rest of my labour acting like a Midwife and telling me when I was 'building up to a contraction' or 'oooooh, that was a big one Uniquey'! 'The baby's doing well' and all that sort of thing.
I have a giggle about it now, but I know I wasn't at the time!

Hmm... not really. All I can remember getting annoyed at was the repeated "are you having a contraction?", "is that another one?" or something along those lines... really didn't want to talk at the time.
