I am nearly 38 weeks pregnant and nearly everything is irritating me at this point. On Friday afternoon my husband came home from a bad day at work and was having a very negative attitude.
As soon as he walked through the door he was complaining about how messy the house was. Not only am I verily pregnant and unable to do much at this point, but I’m also watching our 2-year-old daughter during the day that has been getting into everything. So yes the house was messy and the dishes weren’t done I’ll admit to that.
Then he was complaining that I didn’t have dinner ready for him and that I wasn’t making dinner that night. I usually cook 90% of the time but that day I was just so tired and done with everything so I suggested we go out.
I tried to explain how it’s difficult for me to do stuff now, how I’m tired, how our daughter was bouncing off the walls that day and he wouldn’t listening to any of it.
Then he compared me to his friend’s wife by saying “You know, John’s wife is pregnant too and does x, y, and z and she even gets dressed and puts makeup on every day”
Well that’s when I absolutely lost it. I told him to get out, and not come back until the end of the weekend. That I’d had enough and wanted time to myself.
He packed a bag and went to his brothers house, and sent me paragraphs of texts before I finally decided to block his number.
I used the weekend to take my time to clean up and then just spend the rest of the time playing with my daughter.
Not only did he tell his brother about my little freak out, but he told his mother and now she’s been texting me non stop about how I’m being a bad wife. It’s like he’s turned everyone against me over night.
