I'm a stay-at-home mom and I feel like my relationship with my boyfriend is headed in a bad direction. I rarely get out of the house, have hardly seen any of my friends in months, and just haven't had any time to myself. Everything is baby all day every day and when my boyfriend comes home from being at work for 12 hours, I just feel like we're 2 people who are just roommates. All the spark is gone from our relationship. I don't want to share how my day was because I don't want to burden him with anything because he works a hard labor job all day. I just try and leave my boyfriend alone...he tries to talk to me, etc but I just feel numb inside. In my mind, I don't think he is happy with me because I'm not the person I once was... I don't know if we should break up or not.. has anyone else gone through these sorts of feelings with a significant other?

Honey you need to talk. Communication is very important in a relationship. If you have to go get a sitter and have a date night once a week or if that is too much twice a month. You need time together if you are going to make a relationship work.
Don't say we are going to do this and then not follow through. Trust me I know what you are going through and it is not easy. Make sure you follow up with what ever changes the two of you are going to be committing to.
If you are ok with going out with friends that is fine. However if you are just wanting time with him. Don't plan being around friends. I have felt the same way many times and I am married. Not so easy to just break up. So work on the relationship. You may be finding that you are the only one that is having these feelings and everything is just fine and dandy on his end. Having children can change the way life goes and it can feel like you are trapped if you are a stay at home mom.. Maybe you could work from home a few hours a week. That may help you not feeling so trapped. It has helped me out.
Look into different opportunities. You can create your own hours and still be there for your baby and boyfriend, All while earning a little extra money.
Hope i could be of help and if you are interested in working from home at any time feel free to contact me. I will be happy to share the opportunity i have been given.
