    Sorry OP, I misread your 8 months pregnant as 38 weeks pregnant. He's still being a knob.

    OP, I think making comments about how other women at work cope is not very fair or realistic, looking after a 3 year old is bloody hard!
    And the foot rub thing… I'd be really annoyed if my DH said that and refused, but I'd also offer to give him one too.
    Actually no, I didn't have easy pregnancies at all. With DD3 I had my gallbladder removed at 24 weeks and continued to have attacks until 30 then developed high blood pressure which required early delivery this whole time DH was away for work. DD4 was very much the same pregnancy minus the surgery.

    Obviously every women handles pregnancy really well but her husband is hands on and probably thinks he's helping out by taking OP's DD in the arvo's to feed, bath and put to bed. A lot of my friends don't even have a hubby that would do anything when they got home because 'it's wind down time.'

    The "OP's DD"? And who else's? When does the OP get her wind down time? I just can't comprehend that attitude.

    OP, my DH is being a bit like this too second time around. It hurts because I know he's capable of being more understanding but for some reason he just seems crankier and more frustrated with me. It's hurtful!

    Op if back rubs are normal for each other then I would wonder why he's now refusing. Could he be stressed about the new baby?

    Cut back on what you are doing where you can.
    Obviously you not your DD's needs but all the extra stuff. When he notices tell him well seeing as he was so grumbly about assisting with any extra help the only way you could solve the issue of being super exhausted from looking after 1 child & busily growing another was to cut back.
