I've probably mentioned this before, but I feel so alone in this pregnancy. I don't know where my husband's head is. Don't get me wrong: when it comes to getting the nursery ready and taking care of all things baby, he's great. Other than that, not so much. I understand he's busy with work and school, but c'mon! Pretend to give a damn about me. There are times when I've thought about just giving him the baby and leaving, since that's all he seems to care about.
He still takes care of just his laundry, but he does the dishes and litterboxes. I would prefer he cook and I do dishes (since that requires less standing), but, I'll take what I can get. Intimacy is lacking, but I don't want to be with someone who doesn't care enough to ask about my day, or massage my swollen ankles (aching back, or anything else), so I really don't feel badly for him. I'm sure that's no way to be, but seriously... can you blame me?!
I feel badly for our child, because, this is no way to enter the world. We even hit a snag about circumcision (if it's a boy). I think genital cutting is unnecessary, and inhumane, however, he feels it's appropriate. All the reasons he gave were flawed, but I let it go. I'm just praying it's a girl, because I WILL NOT have my baby's penis cut for cosmetic reasons, and I know this will be a problem. I just get so upset when I think about all the compromises I've made for this relationship (and subsequent marriage)... this will not be one of them!
