Location: McDonough, GA by way of Charlotte, NC and my home NY!!!!
My DH is really, truly, and frequently getting on my last nerve!!!! He has no idea what it is like being pregnant, the aches, pains, how your body changes and there is nothing that you can do about it and sometimes no source of relief until baby is born! He has just been really insensitive these last few weeks and it is really ticking me off !!!!!!!!!!!! I am am just so annoyed I wanna punch him !
I was feeling the same way this morning with my DH! I was exhausted, didn't sleep well, and practically begged to be able to sleep in... but nooooo.... I had to get up at 7 and he slept in until 10:30, then took an hour to get up and going and THEN had the nerve to ask me to go help him fix the fence when it's 95 outside. I was like... not a chance!!! Finally got a chance to sneak in a quick nap before he had to go to work, but instead of helping out by keeping our 3 year old occupied, he ignored her screaming/singing/playing and generally making a ruckus. Heaven forbid I get a brief nap.
I wish men could experience pregnancy for a day. Just one day! My DH brought me lunch to work and when we were walking to the car he turns and says why are you walking so slow you act like you're already BIG and pregnant. I said I don't have to be big...lets stick a baby in your d@$m crotch, kicking you all day and see how fast you walk ugh.
Men can be so insensitive sometimes. My DH is having a hard time understanding the amount of stress my body is under. He goes to work and thinks that is soooo much. I would like to see him get everything prepared for baby, cook, clean the house, manage the bills, and take good care of himself in the process (eating well,exercising,sleeping,etc). Not to mention hormonal ups and downs, physical limitations, and a very active baby kicking around in his belly. I can't imagine that he could handle all the stress but I do. I just wish he would take on a few of the roles I do around the house. Ugh excuse my mini rant... Lol it just gets frustrating.
Men in general seem to have no idea what it's like for women. They also have no clue (***most of them) what it's like taking care of a home and children all day every day. It's not just laying around all day.
My dh works an extremely tough job so I'm happy to take care of everything else but if I need a little help he better be volunteering. Lol he's usually pretty good about helping me but there are some times I want to ring his neck.
Aww sorry ladies! Too bad you can't send the guys to DH daycare when you've had enough. I don't have a DH but wish sometimes for a little help.. But then when I talk to guy friends who make it clear they know nothing about pregnant women or think they do and I have to set them straight it drives me crazy and I'm glad I'm calling all the shots with my baby.
