My dh is wonderful, we've been through this a few times. Just being the kind of person he is though, he would never dismiss me, would never ignore my complaints of pain or discomfort, regardless of whether I am pregnant or not. He feels really badly that I will probably have to help out getting the kids to school in the mornings right now. (Our oldest boys get up at 5am, and we stay up with them) He wanted me to not have to get up at all in the mornings until I wanted to, but since my oldest dd moved out this past weekend, he will need my help. I certainly don't mind, he will take more on somewhere else to make it up to me, although it isn't necessary.
To be honest, my dh doesn't usually change diapers, but that doesn't bother me in the least. He will, if I ask or if he is home alone. But he will not hesitate to give a bath, hold a crying baby/toddler, make a meal for all of us, clean up a mess, go grocery shopping alone if I am not up to it (we usually go together every Friday night).... He will totally listen to me cry and complain about anything, and won't make me feel like I don't matter or that my concerns are trivial.
How do I feel towards him right now? I feel very blessed to have him as my dh. I feel safe and secure. I know he will drop everything when I call to say I need him. After 22 years together, he can often know what I need before I ever realize it myself. Sometimes, I don't even need to call to tell him I need him, he just knows.
Yes, there are. Mine rubs my feet or back whenever I complain about being sore, pregnant or not.
I am sorry things are tough for you, Jenn. I hope my post didn't sound insensitive, or make you feel bad. I hope your dh steps up this time for you.
