I want to know how other people feel towards their OH since having a child and if their feelings have changed at all. Since having DS my OH winds me up something chronic. I feel like the responsibility of parenting is so overwhelmingly unbalanced. DS enjoys being a parent so much more than I do but I think that is because we've had such different experiences with it. I feel permanently exhausted and depleted. Meanwhile DS is bouncing around with happiness and even that annoys me. I just feel so angry towards him so much of the time!

I feel the same. Husband will come home after a long day at work, and be jumping up and down with the kids, running around chasing our 2 year old and tickling him, he'll play peek-a-boo with our 3 month old till shes sick of smiling and laughing. I feel so jealous sometimes because i have no energy to do this. I spend the day cooking, feeding, changing nappies, cleaning up the mess, if im lucky i get to use the loo. Im always tired..some part of me is always aching. Im always moody lol. You arent alone

You aren’t alone. I’ve felt the same. I wouldn’t say mine is bouncing with energy, I just feel different. I do do most of the child care responsibilities which I don’t mind but I’ve totally gone off sex (I am still breast feeding) and he irritates me a lot. I hope it will change but my lo is 1 now!

Anger towards who? DS or OH?

@Stargazer2404 it's refreshing to know it isn't just me! I don't think he understands how hard it is being 'Mum'. Hopefully we'll feel better as time goes on!

@LL82 I'm the same, no interest in sex whatsoever. I'm too exhausted to even think about it.

@managedmis anger towards DH, I don't think I have it in me to be angry at DS!

Try kicking him out and raising your son without him and see how you like it.
