Am I being a total selfish compaliner?

Hey everyone. I am a stay at home mum to a 1 year old. I live in canada but I am from Ireland so have no friends or family here to rely on to help out.
My husband works all week and financially supports me so I am obv so grateful for that (I stopped a good career to take care of my daughter).
My problem is my husband trains for rugby 2 times a week then on a sat all day spends his day at rugby. I used to go and watch him with the baby but the rain is so bad here no I no longer can. Anyway that means all week I have the baby alone (no family or friends help out here) and on a Saturday too.
I am feeling miserable and depressed and pretty alone and my husband just tells me that I am complaining too much.
I know I am complaining a lot at the moment and he does take care of me a lot but I just feel so down right now.

You should find yourself a hobby that you can do when your husband is home. It's not fair that he gets to have his "me" time playing rugby and you don't get any. Even go shopping for a couple of hours on a Sunday when he's home.
It took both of you to create your baby and it takes both of you to raise her as well.
Maybe when you talk to him about it don't make it sound as if you are complaining. Tell him matter of factly that you also need some "me" time to recharge and be the best Mother for your daughter.
