I am 38 weeks pregnant with a 2 year old. Married for 10 years. I got laid off from work about 3 years ago. I saw this as an opportunity to start my own boutique. My husband was for the idea we shared a joint account so we used both our money to start. Needless to say this business has not generated as much money as I hoped. In fact I have spent more and i regret this. Long story short we have been arguing lately more than ever over nothing me telling him to leave fan on becsuse am hot, him changing baby and getting upset if wipes were moved from room, the baby car seat belts twisting says am not taking time to put them properly. Today I called him on his 45 min drive home to remind him to pass by store since its on his way to buy bread and milk for baby. He didn't answer the phone. It was not a big deal we leave 10 min from store. My phone was dying so I plugged it and went upstairs to change baby. Needless to say I ended up being upstairs longer and there fore missed his 10calls all within 10 min. First thing he did the minute he got home is shout at me for not answering. I explained that i did not think i would be upstairs that long. He proceeded to shout that I am pregnant I should carry my phone all the time. I just didn't think he had any right to shout. So I asked him what sense it made to shout at me for missing his call when he missed my call. If it was an emergency I would have left a message and would have called the doctor. Needless to say another argument this time he tells me since being pregnant I have answered him back treated him badly so he is not going to pay for my credit card. I need to give him a list of what the baby needs he will buy it otherwise if I put it on my card I pay for it. My sister was supposed to come help me and stay for 2 months. He says he is not buying her ticket. He will drop me off and pick me up at the hospital but will not visit me. He says he will treat me exactly the way I treat him. I am lucky that my pregnancy does not make me sick so I do everything from washing cleaning cooking teaching baby abc's taking baby to library play dates park. Since baby was born he has never taken baby alone I am with her 24 hours. I don't complain because I love my daughter. I just don't think he recognizes what I do. I have told him that i wish he could see that i am pregnant. He says i am not the first woman to be pregnant. Every argument ends up in him reminding me how much money i spent on the business. He says everything I do cannot be done without his money so he will show me exactly how important he is.just don't know what to think.
