My DH is a volunteer firefighter. Ever since he's started this, he acts like his firefighting is of the utmost priority, and I'm sick to death of it. He has to go to a training every Tuesday night and then pull one 12-hour shift a week. (He does have another job. One that PAYS HIM.)
I'm 9 months pregnant and we planned months ago for him to have a free schedule for the last two weeks of April so that there was nothing in the way that he might have to cancel when I have the baby, and we agreed on him having 5 days off once I had the baby so I could kind of get back on my feet. He pulled his 12-hour shifts earlier in the month and told them he wouldn't be at the trainings for two weeks. All of a sudden, last week, he tells me that he's actually going to the trainings because they "might" do some kind of test on one of them. I was a little upset because this was something we had repeatedly discussed: no firefighting crap for this time, but oh well. Next thing I know, he tells me that he signed up for a class that's all day this Friday! WHAT?
Last night, he asked me: if I have the baby in the next couple of days, would I be upset if he went to the class anyway on Friday. And I said yes--yes I would. He let it go, and then maybe an hour later he flipped out on me that I'm horrible and selfish and ridiculous and "unsupportive." Unsupportive? He has gone to all of his firefighting crap for three years straight and I ask him for 5 days of support after I have our child, and he's trying to make me feel guilty and selfish for asking for it!
Is it me? Am I being ridiculous?
