Wow that's a lot to deal with.
1st it's not uncommon for kids especially boys to not talk much at 18 months. My ds didn't really talk at all until he turned 3. He isn't delayed - actually the opposite, I'm starting to suspect he's gifted - his sister is so no surprise there. But he still talked late. Have you considered teaching your dss sign language. It might help both of you to communicate better. I know a lot of people who have done it & it really helps.
Sounds to me (if I can read between the lines) is that you are really more upset with you dh but it's easier to vent about the kid. The real issue here is that your dh isn't being a dad at all to any of the kids. And unless you do something about it, he won't just come around & change at the sight of his 4th child KWIM?
Perhaps you need to look at the custody arrangement. Honestly I can't see a child that young being away from his mother for 2 weeks straight. He doesn't understand what's going on. I imagine that's why he's clingy.
I hope you can get everything worked out before your baby arrives.
