Newly married, pregnant and scared of failing

Jamie - posted on 08/18/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




I am a 30 yearold mother of my 6 year old little girl, my new 4 year old step daughter and am expecting another in March. I am very blessed in the sense that my husband and his ex have a very close relationship and work together very well to accommodate raising their daughter in the happiest environment possible. However, I find myself often excluded from planning and my husband, in an effort to stay on good terms is constantly making arrangements with the baby mama to change things and I often am not consulted or considered in any of the plans. This results in me feeling like I am not a priority and I don't know how to make it better. I have pleaded with him over and over to talk to me, just give me the consideration of consulting me before he changes plans so that I know what is going on and feel like my opinion matters and he continues to inadvertently make plans and I am left having to rearrange my schedule and life at the last minute an feeling humiliated when I am canceling plans for play dates etc because I was kept out of the loop. What should I do? I want to have a successful marriage but I am so sad and unhappy and feel so unimportant in our marriage... Please help!

He doesn't really need to consult you with everything but he should at least be letting you know what is going on.
