little faith in DH — The Bump
Postpartum Depression

little faith in DH

I love my husband but some times I think he doesn't really know me or what I want, and just skips doing the sentimental things I like because he's lazy or cheap. And I am so sad to think there's going to be nothing for me to unwrap tomorrow morning under the tree, he's leaving it up to my family to get me gifts.

I know we just bought a minivan (a practical, joint purchase that was unrelated to Christmas), and we got a carseat for DS, and we used the gift card his sister gave me to get me a new set of pj's... but those are not for me from him that I can unwrap. Here's hoping that today, on his way home from work, he'll get the inspiration to get me something special. With the PPD, it makes thinking of not getting a gift so much worse in my heart.

Re: little faith in DH

  • I'm sorry you won't get something special to unwrap too.  Have you mentioned to him that you would love something...even if it's not an arm and a leg? Sometimes men just don't understand how getting a little something can make you feel so special. 
  • yes several times with many ideas. men. they just don't get it. I talked to my mom an hour ago which helped... she told me how many christmases she never got a present either.
