Relationship advice at 36 weeks

Leann - posted on 05/05/2014 ( 1 mom has responded )




I have been struggling for a while now in my relationship. My babies father will tell everyone around how excited he is for our daughter to be born yet I have received no support and I am just afraid that he isn't ready to fully grow up. I am 36 weeks pregnant and starting to experience complications, mostly accredited to stress. He constantly tells me that I complain too much, that I am selfish and inconsiderate of his feelings and that if he were pregnant he could "do it no problem". I can't get him to want to do anything with me, he mysteriously always has plans such as going to the gym. We have yet to do anything together, even shop for our baby. He wants no part in it. Yet when his friends call, he drops his plans like its nothing and runs out to help them. Just last night he lied and told me he was going to help a friend and instead went out on the lake for the day....our anniversary to top all. I begged him to help me go grocery shopping but he had no time. He crawls back in at 10pm and I had enough. We slept separately last night. I did not even want to be around him. I'm afraid that this is going to cause more stress but I need to address the relationship. I can't keep going on each day pretending I'm ok. Has anyone been in a similar situation and have advice? He's impossible to talk to, he just says I'm hormonal and won't admit that I'm wrong. HELP!

Ok, you are calling him "the baby's father" not your boyfriend, fiance, etc. It seems to me you already made your decision about your relationship with him.
