My partner and I had a rocky relationship before I fell pregnant with my son, but it was tolerable and not very hostile.
Hubby never wanted children so when I found out I was pregnant he started referring to the baby as a "disease eating away at your body". Which made a hormonal stage unbearable.
He woke up to himself 3 weeks before Tobias was born when he held my friends newborn which was a relief and was such a support at the labour then was even better for the month or so that followed.
But then everything went down hill fast! We constantly fight because we are both tired, and he work 3:30pm till 11:00pm then stays up until 4:00am and wonders why he is tired in the morning when Tobias wakes up at 6:00am. He says I should let him sleep in till 12:00pm. But I don't think it's fair for me to have to do it all, especially when he could go to be earlier to help me.
I haven't been diagnosed with post-natal depression, but I think I might have it as I have been having very uncomfortable thoughts, and I have explained this to hubby but he just doesn't seem to understand or want to support me in my concerns.
Any advice would be great as I am at my wits end and I am afraid that the happiness for my son could be jeopardized.
