    Default DH is driving me nuts

    Is there a for dummies video or other video resource for partners on how to not get themselves killed while their wife is pregnant? Even better, how to be a better partner and not a d1ckhead while mummy is gestating? If I wasn't so bloody angry at him, I'd be worried for his safety 😡

    I reckon I was about 30 weeks when my DH realized I was actually growing a human. Keep reminding him. Loudly and often. He'll get it eventually. In the meantime vent away!

    Lol yes. My DH actually said to me the other day 'I know you're pregnant and all, but I am tired too' (in reference to cleaning kitchen after I had just done all the cooking etc).
    Ahem. You don't get to be tired while I am pregnant DH. Your tiredness is a drop in the ocean compared to what I feel every single night. And yet you still complain that I am not up for getting jiggy-with-it when you finally crawl into bed at 10:30pm?!

    My DH is generally good to my face. I do hear him grumble under his breath but I figure he is entitled to it lol.

    He has told me to take it easy more often lately. He does see how tired I am with this pregnancy and a toddler.

    BUT still - they don't get it. Never will I guess unless they go through it. Just keep telling them. Shove books articles toward them to read about what pregnancy does etc.

    And vent on here!

    Sometimes I feel alone in this pregnancy. My DP is a good man and all but I feel like i am not allowed to be tired or upset about stupid **** because I also suffer from depression so he feels like life is no different from what it was before. I went off anti depressants at his request as this is his first baby, so I feel like I have to deal with my feelings all by myself. I feel like i can't talk to him about how i feel about stuff because he will say, oh yeah the same old sh!t.

    Oh no, that's rotten!!! So it's ok for him to ask you to stop taking meds but he doesn't really understand how that affects you?
    I'm sending you huge hugs; do you have other support?

    I see a psychologist but my mother doesn't understand depression. I once told her when I was younger that she was as approachable as a landmine.
    I feel better for being off the anti depressants but i find it extremely hard when my partner doesn't understand me. He tells me to get over sh!t. We aren't really talking at the moment. I am 24 weeks pregnant with his first child (i have two from a previous marriage). I am sick of talking to him because he doesn't really try to understand me. Just puts everything down to me being difficult and picking fights.
