im sorry your DH is like that! I dont think you are wrong for feeling that way. Its supposed to be a "partnership" right? I mean I would feel the same way if DH did that to me!

I would feel the same way - especially preggo.

I know your dh is probably worn out from working so much but it's easy for them to forget just how dang hard watching a super active toddler is all day + being pregnant. Maybe you can have a heart to heart with him to get him more involved & give you a break. ((hugs))

That's easy... when he comes home. Go lock yourself in a room or take a nice bath or go for a walk, ALONE!
Dh and I came up with a few "rules" when our first was little. When he first walks in the door, I can't jump on him to do something or play, etc... I give him 30 minutes to unwind and then he jumps in and does whatever I need help with. It worked well.

I know how you feel. When my DD was around that age my exDH would get home from work and immediately go to sleep. His view was... "Men work all day, women cook, clean and raise children." He would get home as early as noon sometimes! He would play and interact with her sometimes but when it came time for a diaper or food... hang it up. I hope your DH comes around, maybe you could talk to him and come up with a few "rules" or guidelines or really sit him down and explain how you feel. It's frustrating being pregnant, on top of chasing an active toddler, on top of feeling like you have no help when it shouldn't have to be asked for... but should willingly be given.
