Imagine having a human being sitting on your bladder, then imagine your partner whining about you having to use the john too much. Do you think you’d chuckle good-naturedly and say, “Oh, you old so and so!” Or do you think you’d yell, “#[email protected]&%*! YOU! I’VE GOT A BABY ON MY FREAKING BLADDER!” The latter? Yeah, me too.

Warning: the best way for a pregnant woman to relieve stress about giving birth is by tearing into an insensitive partner who won’t shut up about how painful it’ll be (or how she might poop on the table).

Good tip: Every time you feel the urge to say something that might stress her out, instead say, “You are SOOOO beautiful.”

7. Complain about your home being messy.

8. Not care about naming the baby or decorating the baby room.
