Where do I start my partner is useless he never asks me how I am or how I'm feeling even well I tell him I'm noy feeling good he doesn't seem to care. I'm home looking after our 18 month old and 15 weeks pregnant and he is no help what so ever. He will not do anything half the time he doesn't even answer the phone to me or my messages. When I tell him I'm not well he changes the subject to himself he ain't well he this he's that. I have to nag for money or he won't give me any. I'm feeling a bit depressed and some days I'm really moody I no its not fair to take it out on him but he goes mad and has a go at me he really doesn't get it. I lost a lot of weight after our first child and became a bit obsessed with losing weight and struggling with the fact that all I'm doing now is eating and putting weight on i look at myself in the mirror and justhe think your so fat and he doesn't understand how hard it is for me from being a size 18 to struggling to lose weight and now putting it on. I'm extremely happy I'm pregnant I'm just very self conscious and have no confidence and he has done that to me and still makea it worse. I'm not in love with him at all and think I'm only with him so I'm not alone and because he will make my life hell if we split up and turn everyone against me like he did before. Any advice or tips x

I'm sorry to hear how you are feeling. Do you think he would listen if you chatted to him about exactly how you feel and what you want him to be doing?

I have to say that from what you say, it doesn't sound like a relationship and staying with someone for convenience only works if you are both happy. Leaving him now will probably be easier on your children as well.
