Yeah, that's the weird part... no one is jumping to carry laundry baskets or anything! Tough being pg for the 4th time!
Anyway, I did tell dh to back off me. I ended up crying for a whole day about it and he got upset b/c you know they hate when we cry and they can't make us stop crying. He did say that I am so important and that he doesn't know how to do anything I do. No duh.
Now yesterday he did want me to come in b/c he wanted to go somewhere at lunch but I didn't b/c yesterday was the day I had planned to stay home and take care of some more of that money stuff that is so unimportant.
Now, today I have to go to work and stay until the end while he leaves early b/c it is ds1's back to school picnic at 4:30 and I would rather chew my arm off than go to an outdoor park in 95 degree heat with 3 kids and a bunch of snotty parents (we live in a very snobby town.) Hopefully the store will not be busy from 3-5!
In the old old days (like 16th century) you did stay inside, in your room, with the windows closed and drapes drawn with a fire on from 34 weeks to 6 weeks after the birth. The first place you were allowed to go was to church at 6 weeks and they called it "getting churched." But can you imagine being in the same stinky hot dark room for 12 weeks???????????
