my name is jessica, i am 26 with 5 kids and have been married for 3 years. we just found out that we are pregnant with twins. I am very excited or should i say i WAS very excited to have them. The problem is, my husband is a TALKER...he talks about what hes going to do but never does it and shows no motivation. He comes from a family of no morals and when i first met him i basically had to teach him how to be a man.I love him so much, he is a great father, very playful, energetic and loves kids but we are BROKE and im am very stressed out because of it. We have 5 kids and recently got custody of his child through another relationship unexpectedly which makes things even more difficult for me because i am automatically responsible for everything because he doesnt know how to do anything but play with them. Not to mention his daughter has some serious issues. She is 8 soon to be 9 and craves attention to the point where she will do anything to get ALL the attention for herself even if it means hurting someone. But anyways i feel very stressed out because i feel like i have no help when it comes to feeding the kids, bathing them, making appointments, and just keeping them all in line. I work right now which is so hard, sometimes when i come home i am very exhausted and in pain all over my body. He does NOTHING to make me feel better, he only shows me love when he wants to have sex which is very often but i am so turned off by him not showing me love and affection unless it has to do with sex , so i never have sex with him. I dont feel loved, i dont feel happy at all during this pregnancy, i cry all the time. I feel like i wear the pants in this relationship and i just need and want a break. Im sorry if this post is all over the place but there is so much going on and i dont know where to begin. I just really need someone to talk to i guess. In need of some very good advice.
I am so sorry hun, pregnancy should be a happy time. Have you tried being blunt and speaking to your dh about how you feel? I hope he starts to help out more. If you ever want to vent feel free to send me a pm. *hugs*
Thank you so much Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy!
