Hi, I feel so down lately, I'm just so disappointed in how my life has turned out, I never imagined I'd end up like this. I'm in my 30s, have a 1yo and another baby on the way. The thing that I find most disappointing is just the lack of support at home, I feel like I'm doing everything on my own. I have to do all meal prep for bubs, all paperwork for childcare, doctors, organise immunisations etc. Everything. My husband has made a proper meal for her once, he's cooked meat a couple of times which was too tough and she couldn't eat it, that's it (I'm vegetarian, so have struggled with not knowing how to cook meat), but that's still on me majority of the time. I'm now back at work and feel like my workload has doubled, I go to work and come home and cook and clean and play with out daughter. My husband works a couple of days a week, if that, he has more free time than me but just doesn't help. He thinks he does though, I've brought it up with him so many times, but he's so dismissive. He barely has anything to say about it, once he even bignoted himself and said he's a good husband compared to other guys because he cooks and cleans. But in reality, if he cooks he cooks only for himself, if he 'cleans' he'll wash his plate/fork/cup etc, just the dishes he's used, not everything. I find it so annoying that this all just fake on dead ears with him. I don't know what else I'm meant to do.
