The worst thing this time around is that my DH pretty much expects me to take care of my DD and myself and that he is only responsible for himself. When we go places for the day, I wake up at 6 to get myself ready before DD gets up and he is still in bed sometimes until after she gets up. Normally this does not bug me because he does some extra chores around the house - dishes, general cleaning. But lately its really starting to get on my nurves - when we have 2 kids am I going to be responsible for 3 people and he only responsible for himself? Plus I worry as I get bigger, he will really need to step up helping DD with bathtime and bedtime. Its already hard for me to bend down and reach into the tub to help her. He was very sweet the first time around, but its almost like this pregnacy is not as significant to him as the first. When in fact I've had more symptoms this time around and could use more help.
I feel like this at times. I SAH with DD, so it's easy for me to just continue taking care of everything when he is done work. I've found that it's been good to start now in setting the precedent to make sure DH is taking a more equal load of the responsibility when he is home. Rather than waiting until I'm more pregnant - and more frustrated - I've started asking him if he can do bath time, or get her breakfast. I figure if we ease into changing up our routine now, it won't be as rough when the baby gets here.
