Hi. I'm new here. Just wondered if anyone had been in a similar situation
I am 23 weeks pregnant with a little boy and have an 18 month old daughter. I am very blessed that my partner works full time so I can stay at home. The only problem is that I'm really struggling.
I can cope with having my daughter all day. Yes its hard but I see it as my job. My partner returns from work around 4pm. I don't expect him to take over so I can put my feet up but I do expect a bit of help. Tonight I was extremely tired. I'd taken our daughter to The zoo and walked around for 4 hours. I'd also given friends a lift there and back. By the time I got home I was exhausted. I could have really done with a catnap which my partner said was fine. But he just starts nodding off. I've had an argument with him before because I walked in and he was 'sleeping on the job' and our little girl had something in her mouth she shouldn't have.
It's really frustrating me because although he works hard, I just need a bit of help here and there. I don't expect to be able to nap everyday when he gets in but today my eyes were stinging I was that tired. His suggestion was to stick her in her pram in case he fell asleep. I couldn't do that to her as she had been in her pram all day at the zoo and it wasn't fair. She needed play time.
I just feel so alone and I'm so angry with him. Can anyone help? I'm starting to really get run down :(
