Despite the fact that we were quasi-TTC (limited BD due to health issues with him, therefore not following any type of schedule), when I announced to my DH that we were with child on Monday, his response was less than stellar. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not expecting him to be jump up-and-down and flail his arms around excited, but c’mon… at least show some sign of ~happy~ emotion.
The weird thing about it all was that he wanted baby #2 even more than I did (I went back-and-forth about having another, since our DD is 9… but deep down I knew I wanted another, and I’m over-the-moon!), so his lack of emotion about the whole thing is puzzling to me. When I try to ask him why he doesn’t seem happy, he just replied, “I’m a guy… we don’t get excited about this kind of thing.” UGH.
To top it all off, he hasn’t been supportive in the least. If I mention heartburn or nausea, he tells me (in not so many words) to suck it up. He’s currently off work on sick/medical leave after surgery, and I’m doing everything around the house and his knit-picks everything. I cleaned 3 bathrooms today and have done 3 loads of laundry, but the floors are still dirty. I fall asleep on the couch at 9pm. Give me a break! Not everything has to be done at once… and in the 13 years we’ve been together, I’ve NEVER seen him sweep or mop, let alone clean a damn bathroom.
Maybe it’s just hormones, but I’m going crazy over here…
Am I the only one who is dealing with a less than supportive/happy DH/SO?
