Sick of the same old.. You're doing too much when I'm at work. Leave it for me. However if I waited till he got home and showered as he is caked in crap from work so would have to shower first. If he then did he housework it would be 10pm before sitting down So I honestly have no issues in doing it. I've always been independent and just got in with stuff. So he's getting narkky as I do it all. Hoover Polish floors bedding. Bathroom etc all the normal day stuff. Plus things like defrost freezer clean out fridge.. Only thing I haven't is the oven due to high chemical fumes. But he's like if you're not careful you'll do damage or something will happen. He's not understanding it at all. If I struggled for any reason then I'd ask but I don't.
Wanted to sympathise My DH doesn't want me overdoing. which includes taking his shirts to the dry cleaners. Which is at the end of our road. On my way to work.
I moved house with both our mothers helping, when I was about... 10 weeks. Literally shouted at both of them, which I've never done before- but apparently lifting ANYthing (like, a bag containing two pillows....) would do irreparable damage...!
It's done/said out of love, even if it seems supremely unhelpful
On a serious note though, just let him do something! Leave something every day for him instead. I had this conversation with my partner. We're making babies and they feel pretty useless, so it manifests in weird and wonderful ways. I think it's healthier for them to feel like they're contributing in some way... and to be honest there isn't much else they can do to help, so let them feel needed by leaving the floors or whatever occasionally
What are you complaining about? That sounds great . I'd love it if dh thought housework was off limits for me. Honestly I would be careful of some heavy bleach stuff. I get quite lightheaded cleaning the bathroom.
How far on are you? When I was about 38 weeks, I took a fit of cleaning. This obviously involved having to move sofas etc to clean under them. The next morning I had a placental abruption and very nearly lost my baby. You're not weaker when pregnant but you have something which may be damaged. Or someone.
I’m in the same boat as you as my dp doesn’t even want me to empty the dishwasher, cooking dinner is a no no aswell I know he is doing it out off love but it can get really annoying, which my mum finds highly hilarious as she said as a teenager she couldn’t get me to do any off these things and now I’m moaning that dp not let me as the fear that I will break
It's great that you're cracking on but please make sure you have some time to relax before the baby is born! Don't look back and think 'why didn't I sit and watch lots of Netflix while eating chocolate?' Congratulations BTW.
