I am 7 months pregnant, just had knee surgery and a clot in my leg and my husband is complaining of the "burden" he has. He barely cleans the house, barely looks after our 4 yr old and constantly complains how he has struggled too, with a cold during this time (I have been down about 1 month). While I understand he has had to do more, I am SO TIRED of hearing how bad he has had it. I am having a hard time biting my tongue. Any suggestions of how not to get so frustrated about his behavior? I don't want a pity parade for myself, but I want him to stop guilt tripping me for having to ask for extra help, he is my husband and should be able to handle some extra housework. What to do? All he talks about is himself and never even asks how me and my daughter fare during the day.
