SO called to ask if he could have the guys over on Saturday night to watch UFC. I told him I'd rather they not come over as I am going to have a baby like any second now and don't really feel like dealing with having a bunch over guys over. He didn't really seem to understand the connection between me about to have a baby and having his buddies over. I told him to go over to one of their houses to watch it instead. It's not like I'm telling him he has to stay home with me. So now he's all in a crappy mood with me over this. He thinks its better to be at home in case I go into labour - but honestly I just want to relax in peace.

I don't think that is unreasonable, for the last few weeks and a few weeks after she was born I told my husband I didnt want ANYONE in our house because I hate having guests in a messy house, and the last thing I wanted to do was clean!
I would've felt the same way the last couple of weeks before I had Brennen.
I think you're being very fair by asking him if he can go watch it with his friends at one of their houses. Hopefully he'll come around and it won't be an issue, because you definitely need to be relaxing right now - not stressed out!
I think you're fine too. My MIL keeps asking if she can come and make us dinner one night, and I keep putting it off. DH doesnt understand why its such a big deal. Except for 2 weeks ago she came and made us dinner and ending up inviting her BF (who I cannot stand!!!) & my BIL over to MY house for dinner too! That was certainly not what I had in mind when she said she was coming to make us dinner so I could relax!
When we say we want to relax and have some peace & quiet.....we mean it. Why doesnt anyone get that? UGH! Ok......now that I just posted my own little rant on your thread - lol! Let me just say that, no, you are not being unreasonable and I totally sympathize with you!
