hello, My husband is in the navy and is stationed in Bahrain while i am stuck here in Arizona. We just had our first child which he was here for the birth but left shortly after. He is now 7weeks old. i love being a mom and enjoy every min of it but I cant help to feel like a single mom. I went threw my entire pregnancy by myself (all but the last week), and now I am all alone with a newborn and will be untill next yr. It is so unfair and he just does not understand how much work it is. I normally get to talk to him on a daily basis via SKYPE which is good but when he does not call and I know that he had the day off I get so frustrated.Being a parent is so much work as it is and to add not having your spouses support makes it even worse. He gets to go out hang out with friends, go party it up and here i am taking care of his child 24/7 by myself. Im so fed up with pretty much being a single parent and when I express my feelings to him it seems that he just disregards it and changes the subject. WHAT DO I DO?????
