Hello everyone! I am just wondering if anyone else has struggled with this? My husband and I have been married for 3 years and have been together for 7... He is 36 and I am 32. We just found out about our unplanned, yet welcome little jelly bean coming in March (I am five weeks pregnant today) and are both excited about it; however, we have been fighting SOOOO much this week. We do have regular fights, but we work it out as many couples do-- but after tonight, we had a blow out because he is upset that I am not including him in "baby buying" decisions. Yes, I went to the Salvation Army and bought a cute little bumper that I plan on upcycling and bought some diapers, wipes, pacifiers, and baby lotion as a way to tell his parents, but he got REALLY mad at me.
He is mad because he has no say in telling people, he feels. Yes, I clearly see his point, but I have always been the "driven" one in the relationship and he has always had the lackadaisical role, but now, we are both driving each other wild. This is our FIRST baby, and I am sooo excited. I am sooo excited for his family to find out, especially his mom. I lost my mom to uterine cancer last year, and that is all I have wanted, my mom her to share this with us-- and it is really hard. I miss her more than ever. I told him that. Anyhow, this is beginning much longer than needed, but we discussed it, and figured out that we are just stressed about our whole lives changing and working through preexisting marital issues (come on, we all have them). Did anyone else go through this? Please let me know! :) Thank you so much for listening!
