I agree with, and adopt, 1inICXC’s comments.
Also, I must respectfully, b strongly, disagree with Contra’s suggestion that OP “ask [her] husband to ocassionaly sleep on the sofa/in guest room while [she] is going through this? make sure he doesn’t feel rejected, explain what [OP] is going through and that it is only temporary.”
-Bad, bad, bad on so many levels IMHO.
–Kicking hubby out of the marriage bed is NEVER a good idea for a marriage…bar none, IMHO.
–While OP is “going through”…what? Pregnancy? Hormones? “a rough nite?” “Rough nites” may happen for many reasons. Kicking hubby out of bed is gong way overboard…
–…not least because it sets a terrible precedent. We kick out hubby because we have trouble sleeping? How about when we have post-partum depression? When in laws say something unkind…or whatever.
–There is no way to kick hubby out of the bed without hurting his feelings IMHO.
–How about we think of hubby in all this? By the original post, he’s the one working, not OP. Gee, I’m sure he will feel well-rested and able to be the sole support for his family after sleeping on the couch for a while.
–Exactly why is hubby getting kicked out? Because wife can’t sleep…because the bed isn’t big enough? “Buy a larger bed” is lot more palatable - if it’s even the real reason, and I suspect it’s not - than “kick hubby out.”
-Sorry, but “kick hubby out while this is going on” – particulalrly since it is unclear what “this” means – is a really bad idea on so many levels, and a great way to introduce the “d” word into the marriage.
