I don't want to be unfair and DH is great at doing actual baby stuff. He feeds him the bottle, holds him and changes the diapers with out complaint (mostly). Yet I am having a really hard time with him and feel unsupported and alone. He never hugs me or tells me I'm doing a great Job or anything even though I told Him I need this support right now. Ryan is still having a hard time nursing and isn't gaining weigh so I have to nurse, then pump and bottle feed. I am not making enough milk yet to have a stash packed away and am worried abOut my supply.
This is stressful enough, but DH s parents decided to come (we had said no visitors) from out of town and while they are not staying here I totally dread them sitting around our house all day long while I try to nurse and pump (which is all day long) and then loudly talk and chat while I try to get some precious sleep. Last night they arrived at 10 and insisted on seeing him right away even though we had both just gOne down for a much needed nap. They came in and were so loud that I couldn't sleep and then DH had the nerve to come in the bedroom to wake us to show the baby. I just about lost it. He said i was being unreasonable and mean. They them stayed till midnight and were so loud.
I am dreading the next week when they are here because I don't want to socialize just sit threre, pump and nurse and not worry about my boobs hanging out. With them I can't do that i am not comfortable. I will have to sit in our bedroom all day long while they are loud in the living room and likely demand to see baby the whole Time. DH thinks I am overreacting. I told him I needed his support and that he had to send them home at 10 every night so I could sleep But he says that's mean.
I am so fed up with this. We wanted peace and quiet when baby arrived and now both parents arE here (mine are quiet and helpful) and we have a full house and other people's demands to cater to. It's causing problems between DH and I and I am beyond stressed and upset. Sorry I jut had to vent.
