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.
    Hugs!! That's not a good way to feel, especially in your circumstances. I also hope you have plenty of support around you can vent to and get help where needed.

    I have kind of accepted my well-meaning DH just doesn't get (and never will get) how tired, emotional and cranky pregnancy makes me, but I still get p*ssed off sometimes. My close friends are most helpful in that they are all sympathetic and happy to hear me whinge. My mum on the other hand, pretty much tells me to toughen up, lol.

    My best friend told me something at the beginning of this pregnancy that is both helpful and depressing,
    "Pregnancy is isolating. You ARE in it alone."

    It's correct, it's horrid, it's somewhat reassuring (as in it validates my feeling alone).

    H can be great- he cooked lunch and dinner yesterday- but 90% of the time he is clueless.
    Yes H you work 60 hours a week, and I only work 25... I am also growing a human, doing 95-100% of the housework (and shopping) and 90% of the kid stuff (incl arranging stuff with their mum).
    Add that we just moved and I did 95% of that....

    Yepp, lucky to be alive some days.

    ETA: he is taking me home to my family for Xmas though, so he gets points for that

    We just made up, and we just talked, he was like, you know you can talk to me, but you just yell...maybe I yell a bit...I get so emotional and frustrated at times...my mum criticises me all the time. The other day she picked one of my girls up for the weekend and she said "Oh you look good Sam, big but good", she has been on my back about my weight my whole life...Thanks for reminding me about my weight problem because I obviously don't see that when I look in the mirror. I need to make more girlfriends i think, because most of mine live interstate or a long way away...My DP loves me very much, and I probably make it hard for him sometimes...he knows I love him so much. I do feel very lucky to have him, just I know I can be emotional. I can't help that, it's just the way I am...I just wish I liked myself a bit more.
