Step children allowed by dad to sleep in our bed.....and I'm pregnant and not happy about it.
So, I need some advice here. I'm almost 3 months along and I have 4 step kids who my husband and I have 50% custody of. Sleeping was a huge issue for a long time and we had a pretty good handle on it for a bit with the exception of the 2 1/2 year old waking up often screaming etc...
Well, last week and now last night the almost 4 year old (next month) has come up and my husband has allowed her to crawl up and sleep at the foot of our bed. I have been suffering with sciatic issues that are the worst at night and working mandatory overtime at work as well so I do not want to be sharing our bed with any little bodies that will flail and kick about during the night, waking me up.
He says I just need to "relax" and maybe realize she's going through a phase or something but I feel he's putting his kids ahead of me and my needs while I'm pregnant.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Feeling frustrated and very overwhelmed!
Just wanted to add that I'm happy about being pregnant...just not happy about the kids crawling into our bed...just to clarify :)
