I'm nearly 17 weeks and employed full time (40 hours a week), hubby is currently employed 2 nights a week for 4 hours. He's a delivery driver and pays for his own petrol, so basically he's bringing in next to nothing. He is looking for full time employment but no luck as of yet. We are constantly arguing over my work hours at the moment. He wants me to rest, and I want to work as much as I can whilst I still feel able to because we need the money.
The problem is that my hormones aren't helping when we argue. I try to present a rational argument and remain calm about it, but when he's shouting at me I get so upset that I start shouting back which makes things worse. I just shouted "f*** off" to him in the street, after he made a sarcastic thank you comment for the lift he gave me (post argument)-and that's just not me. I'm usually the first to avoid confrontation.
I hate the stress this is causing and I'm worried about the effect on the baby. Has anyone got any tips for taming my fiery hormones so we can discuss this calmly and rationally?
