I am due around October 1.
I am 38 years old. I have 5 children, they are 19, 17, 6, 3, and almost 2.
This time, I have been so sick! nausea, fatigue, constant headaches, depression, and overall un-well.
My husband works full time and does not help with housework or childcare. I am so behind on everything! dishes, laundry, cleaning, even spending time with has children has all suffered because there are times I literally cannot move. I have been barely eating, showering, or caring for myself. I feel like I'm barely hanging on.
Even though, I have asked for help, he refuses, saying, he shouldn't be required to work all day at work and then come home to do it all!
I'm not sure if it is age related, or just a different type of pregnancy and baby. All I know is I can barely make it through the day, and have considered moving out so I would have a break during visitations with their dad.
For example last night, he asked me if I had changed the sheets, I had left them in the laundry. He laid on the couch and waited for me to get up and make the bed, so he could go to bed.
I need some encouragement or advice. This should be a happy time, but I feel so alone and sad!
thanks for listening. it helps to get it out.
