Can't seem to do anything right?!

I asked oh to help with house work yesterday and do food shop (I'm 33 weeks pregnant or would do it all normally myself!) he said yeh no problem... Went out at half 9 to take his Mam food shopping as well... Text at 11.30 asked what was happening oh they still hadn't been cause they where waiting for his brother!

So I continued on... He didn't get back till 2pm (after being out at 9.ish!) I've pretty much done everything... My legs are sore and swollen and now is my lower back and he can't see why I'm annoyed!?! And app when I pointed all this (what I have posted on here!) app I am having a go..... angryangryangry

App I have a go at the kids or him... Because I'm asking for help around the house and being ignored?! Feeling a bit trapped do I just shut my mouth and just get on with it or well there's no or really....

Who is he 'helping ' with the housework and shopping? He lives there too doesn't he?

He needs to get a grip and realise that you are his family now - he shouldn't be prioritising an able bodied mother for his own pregnant partner. That just isn't fair.

was he ever doing his bit of any housework?

This would have pissed me off to. I hate waiting around for people who just dither and waste half a precious weekend day on a task that should only take an hour.

They live in each other's pockets he n kids go to tea every wed (I don't go every week... Far to much for me!) I don't even see my Mam once a week! It's like marry one you marry all of them!

From experience you need to leave things to unravel.

By making a statement and then going against what you've stated you're training him to ignore you as it'll get done anyway and you can't have needed the help anyway.

Leave it next time.
