I have a 13 month old boy, 8 1/2 months preggo, live with in-laws that dont like me and a boyfriend who is completely un-understanding of the stages of pregnancy

I clean the house, do the laundry, not the best cook but I try, and live on the third story of my inlaws house and have to trek down all those flights of stairs to get to everything while carrying a 25lbs child and being 8 1/2 months preggo and I get called a useless, lazy f*** because it is getting difficult for me to get up and down the stairs and because I take an afternoon snooze with my little boy since I have the natural crappy sleep during pregnancy, and because Im a stay at home mom and dont make money means I dont deserve a break. THis is what my boyfriend tells me everyday, I dont even know the last time I heard I love you, according to him being an at home mom does not involve any work therefore you dont get breaks and because he buys the groceries makes him a parent without doing anything else.

  • STOP DOING EVERYTHING for a few days. Lay around. When people start complaining say "I dunno...I don't do anything around here" Obviously they all think the "laundry fairy" comes to call an the "dinner fairy" shows up when it's time to eat. No joke. I did this when hubby and I were first married. He was asking where his clean underwear was. I said "I guess the laundry fairy is late this week...but I wouldn't know, I don't do anything remember?" After three days he was apologizing and has never been that stupid again.

  • While you are waiting for your new child to be born, look into job training available in your area and what kind of job you would like to have. Take yourself in hand now so that you and your children won't need to be dependent on people who treat you in such a way. Consult the department in your local government, or a lawyer, to find about child support and other government assistance that you can get until you get yourself and your children on your feet. It won't be easy, but neither is the life you are living now. Until your life gets settled you may not want to add to your family any more after this child is born until you have a settled relationship and can afford a larger family.

  • We are currently waiting for our house to be built and when I tried getting a job no one wants to hire someone who is about to pop. It just makes me so frusterated and stressed having to hear that everyday, and no matter how much I do that doesnt get noticed, its when I forgot to do something that gets noticed. He just has nothing nice to say to me anymore altho he didnt complain b4 when i was working and making more money than him. Are finances are good, there is no stress he just feels that because he is the one making the money at the moment that he doesnt have to be an actual father and spend time with his son when he comes home. I know when you get home from work you would like some time to relax and wind down which is fine but when you come home and sit on the couch or computer for the next 3 hours and have your son come over crying becuz he wants your attention you dont say "go to your useless mother and bug her"
