My husband is a horrible pregnancy partner this time around.

Originally I wanted four children. Now i don't want anymore and what's sad is that i almost regret I'm pregnant with the 2nd. My husband was a great pregnancy partner with the 1st child; however, he has been awfully during this pregnancy. To say it plainly he is just insensitive. I am 8 months pregnant and he has not picked up any extra responsibilities during the past 8 months except for washing the dishes (and that's only because I stopped) .
To top it all off he has started leaving the house to go do insanity work out every evening for 2 hours while I'm left to stay at home and take care of my son.
Typical day:
I get up at 6:30 a.m. and get dressed fir work. Then i get my son dressed and buckle him into the hubby's car so he can take him to school. I only have to take him to school on Thursdays and on those days the hubby gets him ready for school (leaving out a couple of things of course such as putting on his coat and hat). Then we are all off to work.
We all get home around 5:30. The hubby picks my son up from school everyday. Then he leaves and doesn't come back until 7:30 or 7:45. While he's gone, I help my 4 yr old son with his homework, fix him something to eat, sit down long enough to snack on something while he's eating, give him a bath and get him ready for bed, and help him read a few pages of a book. By this time its a little after 8 and I'm exhausted.
I tried communicating to him nicely that his new habit of working out is leaving me to do everything. He keeps saying" I'm only gone for a couple of hrs, what is it that you do"? I tell him and then he says well I will take him with me or I can do some of that stuff when I get back home. Then I try to explain how that's not possible if my son's bedtime is @ 8.
I'm about to pull all of my hair out over here! I recently told him hat I never want to have another kid with him b/c he's not a good pregnancy partner. I don't know what else to do. I'm starting to hare coming home. On top of it all the house is a mess and the baby's room is currently being used as a storage /junk room.

Sincerely depressed and frustrated,
