SO maybe I am just being hormonal... but have your hubs helped around the house while you were preggo?  I am tired and haven't been able to keep up with things the way that I usually like to...  He hasn't stepped up at all... In fact, he bought me a lawn mower so that I could help mow when he doesn't have time... 

 Do I have a right to be pissy here?  Or am I just being a moody b!t(h?  How did you guys get your other half to help you when you needed it?

 Usually the hubs is a very nice considerate guy... but I don't know how to get this across to him...

    You have to tell him and KEEP telling him that you need help. Make sure if he does do something extra that you thank him. You sometimes have to treat him like a child and darn near overpraise the stuff he does. He probably has no clue what you're feeling like right now and can't really understand it because it's not like he can see that you're pregnant. You just have to sit him down and say, "I'm so sorry but I NEED HELP!" Pregnancy is certainly not for wimps, that's for sure.

  • Yea.. not for whimps is for damn sure... It just never seemed so difficult for anyone... The emotions are a lil nuts right now...
  • You should definitely talk to him. He may not realize that it irritated you. And pregnancy or not, he should be helping around the house!! (DH and I just got done having that "conversation" last week)

  •  I think you need to talk to him about it. He should be helping, especially while you are in your first and last trimesters (when you are/will most likely be the most tired).

     I have been pretty lucky---DH has always been pretty helpful around the house. When I got pg with Maren, I was diagnosed with hyperemisis and ended up in the hospital for IV fluids to help keep me hydrated. He had no choice but to help around the house as I had no energy to get off the couch for the first 4 months.
