That is sad, I would be upset, too. But..HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I know a stranger saying it isn’t as exciting, but it is the best I can do 🙂

happy birthday!!!!!!

You have more patience than me… I would have been like “Remember how it’s my birthday?!?!?!” after we’d been awake for about 2 minutes and he hadn’t said anything about it.

He’s just being an accidental dumbass – I’m sure it doesn’t have anything to do with how much he loves you  🙂

@ames12708:  Is he normally a forgetful person? I am not always the best with remembering birthdays other than my immediate family so I program the dates into my phone. There is no excuse to forget your pregnant wife’s birthday but if he is THAT forgetful, you would think he’d make himself a note.

I am hoping he brings home a surprise for you! Happy birthday!

that would really upset me 🙁 I’m sorry …. I would remind him soon or tomorrow you’ll both feel 100 times worse… especially when he remembers that he forgot.

Happy Birthday to you!!!

I get where you are coming from. I turned 40 on the 10th this month and my DH screwed up royally for planning.  I wanted for him and I to go just us to a resort town for a few days to see the fall colors.  I had asked months ago if he could take the days off.

He asked me the weekend before my birthday what I wanted to do.  Let’s just say I ended up in tears because he says he doesnt remember the conversations yes conversations we had about this. And it was way to late to be able to get a hotel room where I wanted to go. 

Then he tells me two days before my birthday he had planned on taking me on a river boat cruise to see the fall colors but because the gov was shut down the cruises were not running.


So instead on my birthday ( had taken that day and the next day off) he took half a day off and took me out to lunch and gave me a beautiful braclet that is opal and diamonds… so he redeemed himself.


I hope your DH redeems himself also!

Happy birthday!! I hope he comes home with a surprise for you!

Sometimes people are just really forgetful and/or oblivious. I agree with @Mrs.H2B:  that you should say something when he gets home, and you should also tell him that he owes you big time! 🙂
