  • What a jerk. You are WORKING on 20 fingers, 20 toes, and two whole bodies. . . inside of your body! Not to mention, the horomones going awry in your body, and the changes you have to go through! You NEED rest, you can't be on your feet all day long, because you are pregnant. Your husband should be pampering YOU. He agreed to do the deed to get you pregnant, so he should "do the deed" to take care of you! When a woman is pregnant, she needs plenty of rest, and LITTLE emotional stress. Emotional stress, or any kind of stress, can cause miscarriage! He's being very selfish, and needs to wake up and take care of his responsibilities! Take care of yourself as best as you can. Congratulations on twins!!

  • my husband says things like that sometimes too...

    you are working hard, even if he doesnt think so...and nothing you can really say or do right now will change his mind... just let it go and ignore him, if you can

  • Look up the definition of "DICK" and you will see an illustration of your husband. He seems resentful of you....From his perspective, YOU wanted more kids, so they are yours and yours alone. DO YOU SEE THAT THINGS (HE) WILL CHANGE THIS WAY OF THINKING? I don' that means you are in for some hard times. Have the babies, do everything you can to prepare for single-parenthood with this asshole you have to live with to survive. TELL YOUR MOTHER! You will need all the support you can get. MAKE SOME FRIENDS! Not just cyber-friends. TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF! I really wish the best for you and your children. Don't stress!! DON'T STRESS!!! Really even if you have to, fake happy until you feel it. Your babies need a happy, healthy, strong sanctuary to grow in. God Bless you all!

  • My dh told me he never wanted children....after he knocked me up 3 times! I sort of wish he mentioned that before we got married!

  • Hell get a manicure too. What an ass !!!! My DH said that one time to me, ONE. I stopped speaking to him, eating with him, I made HIM sleep on the couch. Plus the next day was a day off for him. Guess who left the house with a list of my usual things I do, thats right ME. We had 2 babies in diapers and by the time I got back, his ass was singing a new tune. He was so damn tired he was sick.
