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
