My OH's best friend has just asked him to go away with him for the weekend. My OH pointed out that the weekend in question was 7 days after my due date. His friend replied yes, but she has a C Section booked so she won't be delivering then, so you can come.
Thankfully my OH pointed out that I maybe leaving me a week after the birth with the baby and after C Section for a few nights on the p*ss might not be a great idea. His friend now thinks he's under the thumb. I wouldn't mind but he has kids himself, although they are a lot older now. I bet it'd be different if men had to give birth. Grrr!

I'm guessing he's forgotten what it's like if his kids are older - at least your OH is sensible enough to realise he'll be needed at home.

Yes, thank god your OH realises! Is it just a random weekend away?
Good on your OH. The other fella sounds like a douche.

Just a random weekend but tied to the date as he want's to go to some horse race or another. I do feel a bit sorry for him as he recently got divorced and is now living in a room in someone else's house until the marital home sells, so he must be feeling lonely. However he's obviously not thinking that with my 1st baby I might be rightly peeved off, if the OH pee'd off for a few nights on the lash.

Haha, no wonder he's divorced if he thinks it's OK for a husband to leave his wife for a jolly boys outing weeks after she's given birth!

I personally wouldn't have had a problem with my H going, but well done to your H. A lot of blokes just go along with their mates.

H's mates had a lad's holiday planned a few weeks before i was due with S. He was invited, but didn't even ask. He just told them that he couldn't possibly consider leaving me, due any time, still working and with a stroppy toddler to contend with. They had no problem with this. A true friend would understand and your H may well not want to leave his first born so soon, regardless of how well you'd recovered/ were coping etc. said friend will need to get used to your H having other responsibilities.

What a thoughtless plonker!

Well done H! Really thoughtful :-)
I agree, the other bloke sounds like a right turd.
