Okay I just need to vent about DH and am curious about how things are going with eveyones DH', DW's, or DP's. My DH just doesn't seem to get that i am pregnant, he is and adult, and that we are going to have a baby here in 5 weeks or less. I have to say that he is very sweet and mostly emotionally supportive which is why I feel bad complaining but he acts as though he is completely incompetent when at home. Maybe I am expecting too much. We have each got our own lists of things to do before the baby comes. His includes pretty much only the things I can't physically do(ie. vacuuming because of my asthma, washing the walls...). He is working full-time so I know he is tired but he just does a half-ass job of everything. Also I am working 20 hours a week, am huge, and have done EVERYTHING to prepare for the baby. I asked him to clean around the toilet because I can't really bend down behind it and he cleaned the back half and left nasty, mildewing scum all around the front. Yes, technically I only said "can you clean behind the toilet" but I would think a man aged 25 with decent vision could figure out to clean at least the whole toilet if not maybe the whole bathroom floor. Then tonight as he was on his way out I asked where HE left the remote and he just said "you'll have to get up and look for it". I'm thinking "I'm giant, pregnant, and in pain AND you are already standing and are the one who lost the remote" AHH! I know I am ranting and probably sound petty but something like this happens daily. Am I crazy to be upset? I just figure if he is cable of being promoted to a manager at work he is able to complete tasks and prioritize without having someone hold his hand!!
