I am a stay at home Mom to my daughter who is 28 months old and I am 30 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child. My husband was laid off his job in March and has still currently not found a job. My husband is home most of the time but he is always in our bedroom on the computer or watching TV. He never helps me with the house or with OUR daughter. I am so... stressed out right now, I am very pregnant and I stay tired all of the time. It would be differant if he was working 40+ hours a week and he was tired after work, but right now he isn't working so I think he should be doing just as much as I do. I bathe, feed, play, dress and put our daughter to bed every night alone. Not to mention that she is 2 and is having her moody independent phase right now and is difficult to work with sometimes. I clean the house by myself and cook every meal. I have tried to talk to him about him helping me alot more, but of course I'm just nagging him. I am so frustrated with him right now and I just don't know what else to do. I find myself yelling at my daughter sometime just b/c I am so stressed. I never get a break, I never even leave the house except for going grocery shopping which I have to take her with me even when he is at home doing nothing. He just doesn't appreciate anything I do and today I was putting away laundry and my daughter got the cell phone off of the counter and he got mad because "I wasn't watching her" I can't watch her every second when I have chores that need to be done, that's why he should be in the living room with her while I am cleaning around the house. I don't know what I should do to get through to him, I really need some advice from other Moms!
