Feeling hormonal :(

Dh has been getting grief from his ex tonight about how he doesn't praise dss enough. Anyway that's another story. I'm 35 weeks tomorrow, feeling fat, ugly and pretty useless. Dh has spent pretty much all day on his computer playing a stupid game, on FaceTime to dss for an hour or so (which I didn't mind obviously, was lovely to speak to him) and I have been cleaning, cooking, had an hours nap this afternoon and dusted the lounge (pretty productive id say!) and now for the past couple of hours him and his ex have been texting back & forth pointless things about what I have mentioned above, whilst I've felt uncomfortable and miserable all evening and just want some sympathy. I've just bitten back at him with 'oh I know she's more important' when I know it's dss who is but I know if it was me who was away at y family's for the weekend he would hardly text me compared to how much he contacts her. hmmconfusedsadangry I probably seem like iabu

No, yanbu. You should definitely talk to your DP and ask him not to discuss anything to do with you, with his Ex! I am not sure if I understood it correctly, but did they actually text about how you were feeling (i.e. fat, tired etc?). I would be livid! He need to back off and only contact her about matters directly concerning his son (how old is he btw?)
I sympathise about feeling fat/hormonal/grumpy and I am only 23 weeks (and with a terrible cold). Hope you can talk to him and explain how you feel.

You were talking about then texting about dss weren't you?

It's one of those inevitable things when you have step children. The ex will always be around. She's prob feeling weird about your DP having a new child and wants the focus to be on dss.

It's annoying when it is pointless texts but not much you can do I'm afraid, just hope DP points out they are getting nowhere and to leave it.

As for feeling hormonal, me too! Burst into tears yesterday for no reason whatsoever. DP was in the kitchen and I was in my own in the front room. Suddenly felt really lonely. Bloody hormones.
