What little things does your husband do to show that he cares? I want to know what he did before pregnancy and what he does now.
I feel like I'm not getting the love I used to get from my H. I don't know if we have just settled in to our old routines after being apart for 7 months (he's in the military) or if this is just who he really is. I saw him 3 times, a total of a week and a half spread out over 7 months and every time I went to visit him, things were different. You know, lovey dovey sort of stuff. (we've been back together for almost a year) When I was pregnant with our first child he always rubbed my back and made sure I had whatever I craved, etc.
I feel like the only times H shows me affection is when he wants to have sex and even then it's not the romantic stuff, it's basically just "okay, I wanna bang. BAM." lol. I mean, I get a peck on the forehead when he comes home from work and SOMETIMES I get a peck on the lips. I just wish he was more affectionate towards me.. I feel like I get taken for granted a lot of the time. Like, hello, I'm 32 weeks pregnant.. things hurt. Scrubbing my house every Saturday hurts me..my back hurts, my feet hurt, my tummy gets all crampy.. I don't even care if he helps me but a good rub/back rub would be nice..
Friday, I spent the majority of the day cleaning, I mopped the kitchen, cleaned the bathrooms, washed the shower curtains in the main bath, put them back up..okay this doesn't sound like a lot but on top of all of my daily chores, it was.. lol. By the end of the day and after cooking supper, I was hurting. I laid in bed and realized that I forgot to take my iron/prenatals so I sent H a text who was playing video games with his friend in the living room and asked him if he'd bring them to me. He response was, "no."
I just don't get it. I do everything for this man. I try to show him affection and I get shot down.. I know he cares but why doesn't he show it? Being so far away from friends and family it'd be nice to know that I have someone who loves me right here next to me.. I don't need to responses about talking to him about it because I have.. It's in one ear and out the other. I don't even bother anymore.
