100% justified. I think it’s also fair for him to be stressed, have a hard time holding it together — true for all of us; but tomorrow’s a big day and I think it’s fair to react that way! Hopefully it all smooths over OP, and bigger picture prevails!

Given that this was a planned in advance thing, yeah, you are justified here. Sending you hugs hugs - this is stressful enough without going through IVF, so I can only imagine how you must be feeling.

Thanks everyone for the forum to vent! He apologized. I think everyone is stressed but fingers crossed for tomorrow!

We’re doing our second round of IVF after the first rounds didn’t work (two miscarriages). The egg retrieval surgery is tomorrow and my husband needs to be at the hospital at 9am. Today he asks me if he needs to be there at 9 exactly or if he can take a call between 8 and 9. I kind of lost my shit. HE HAD ONE FUCKING JOB. And then he went down this whole thing of how he’s been “so busy” and “trying to hold it all together” while I’ve been “irrational” and he’s “tired of my attitude, the sighing and eye rolling”. Meanwhile, I’ve been cooking 3 meals a day for him and our toddler. We’ve split childcare duties but I’m still taking on more than 50%. He helps with the housework but again, I’m doing more than 50%. And it seems like he’s forgotten I ALSO have a full time job. I’m not even annoyed about the unequal split, I realize some of these things are easier for me. But the fact that he couldn’t understand why I was so upset by his stupid timing question and then turned it around and got pissed at me just really pushed my over the edge. Am I justified in feeling this way? Is it the hormones?

100% justified and I’m sorry that is so frustrating especially going through such an emotional process... and I hate to generalize but 99% of women, including myself are living this life right now. Courtesy and appreciation has gone out the window - we’re all doing more than 50% of everything and still have 100% of our jobs. I expect courtesy checks and a thank you here and there and all I get is an attitude if the kids are crying louder than normal when he’s on a call or better yet him having the office all fucking day and not even asking what my schedule is. Ughhhh. An apology can go a long way - wish you all the best tomorrow.
