My husband & hormones don't mix
StaceyH123 posted:
Hello, I hope I posted this in the right spot! I am a usually happy married woman, on my 3 rd pregnancy. Each pregnancy has been hard due to hy husband and his take on hormones and mood swings. ( I love being pregnant and being a mom, I would prob have 5 kids, but he says he can't stand me being pregnant) I am normally a sensitive person, and he tends to very sarcastic which somehow normally works. No matter what I try I can't get him to understand I am even more senstive when I am pg and cry easily. He won't back off, and it almsot seems like he finds more fault in me and is more critical when I am PG. Last night he had me crying, and I asked him to stop before I bawled and he just can't stop! His favorite saying is "grow up!" Which hurts me so much. I am an amazing mother to his children, I have a full time daycare, and he is gone half the week trucking so I do a lot of it on my own. I have no idea ( I have tried many different things in the past) to get him to see how hurtful he is. I don't know if anyone has ever been in a situation like this, or has any advice, but any help would be great, I'm really getting tired of crying! Thank you

PS He also seems to think I cry just bc I'm PG not bc of him so not sure what to do, I'm not one of those women who like to create drama so I just want him to understand
