disappointed

So my dh has been working 60+ hours. He does manual labor for the electrical company so it is back breaking. I understand he is tired but he was so cutesy after work today so we decided we were going to play some Just Dance 4 to try to get this baby to drop and he kept putting it off. Kept playing on his phone, watching t.v., whatever his man add distracted him with. Finally I say "aren't you gonna shower so I can kick your ass?" in a joking manner so he goes up to shower, comes back down and I say all excitedly "let's go play. You ready?" I got a half ass answer so I asked if he was tired amd he said kinda. I said we didn't have to play and he didn't even argue. I am disappointed. I was really looking forward to doing something other than sitting on the couch. I have been suggesting things like scrabble or cards...anything. I am a sahm so I don't have a whole lot of interaction or convesation with others. Plus I am due in two weeks so our whole world is about to shift again. The thing that also bugs me is that he has all.of this energy for ss. To wrestle, play, go do things...just be happy. I got such a shitty attitude when he got home from work yesterday but as soon as ss got dropped off the whole universe shifted and he was nice. I guess I just feel put on the back burner. I know he is tired but so am I. I cook, clean do laundry, shop, etc. I know it isn't what he does but I am also 9.5 months pregnant and have my ds4. Anyway, thanks for listening. Just needed to vent. Hormones aren't helping.

 Have you been honest with him and told him these things? I imagine that you have. Honestly, if you have and he still isn't responding then it's time to try a different appraoch because the one that you are taking isn't working. Be honest and upfront..no sugar coating. I understand that his job is back breaking but so is carrying a 6 + pound baby. I hope he gets it . good luck

We have talked about it, yes. Not recently though. I ended up going upstairs and painting my nails. He came up soon after and, as usual, goofed around on his phone. We ended up watching honey boo boo for two hours. I am not a happy camper at the moment amd will probably stay out of the way mosy of the day until I can figure out how to bring it up without losing my temper. I was up every hour to pee and when that wasn't wakimg me up his snoring was. :/ Thanks for listening.
