Quoting Vivian [♥]:" I painted DS room all by myself. Put his swing together, organized his clothes. And THEN DH got off ... [snip!] ... DH got off his ass to help me build the crib. He has now spent ZERO dollars towards this baby. I have bought EVERYTHING. "
I keep getting frustrated over it, but I have to keep reminding myself that to him, this baby isn't real yet. He knows he's having a baby and she's due in a month, but it hasn't hit him yet, so he feels like there's still time left. It's gonna hit him HARD when we're running to the hospital, though. Lol.
For me - as the mother carrying this baby that I can feel moving all day and I know she's alive and about ready to make her entrance - it's completely real. So if he's not prepared, I have to be prepared for him.
Have you tried crying in front of DH? That worked REALLY well for me. I didn't do it on purpose...it was truthfully the stress and hormones that made me cry...but I had a complete breakdown in front of him, which super softened him and has made him become more "useful". Lol.
