Did having a baby bring you closer together? Be honest!!
We hear alot of women on here having problems with OH's after having children. Resentment/lack of support etc. Would be nice to hear some stories of a couple who have been brought closer? Is it possible? Is it realistic? Be honest.
Sadly after 11yrs it's ripping dh&i to pieces. He's a lazy ahole that claims I wanted this baby so it's all ME. Really hoping this passes soon. TODAY is our 11yr anniversary he went out last night & came home @7am Hope the rest of you ladies are having a better time than I. Sorry to be a downer wish things were different.
not really were pretty much the same :-/ he tries his best to help with lo hes had her pretty much all afternoon while i chill he often does this when hes off he does get up in the night and does most night feeds even when he is up early for work hes shit with housework though i dont even ask for help anymore cos i know he wont do owt round house lol
For us yes, my oh makes most of the bottles, he does his far share of everything, feedin, changin, cleanin the house, he takes lo out for a hour for a walk everyday so I can have a lil rest (he works in the evenings) or if I want to clean (I only like to clean wen no-one else is in the house) without my oh I wouldn't have had my son, and although he can b a pain I wouldn't change him.
Having a baby certainly brought my OH and me closer together. We had a LOT of problems, even throughout the first half of the pregnancy, but since then - and especially since our son was born - we've gotten through ALL of them and have a much better marriage.
I wouldn't say it brought us closer together but I dont mean that negatively. I mean that we had a great solid relationship before LO and I think that's important, having a baby is hard and it puts strain on your relationship - finding time to spend together, lack of sleep, etc it's not easy but I'm lucky that DH is very considerate and helps a lot and is very supportive. Yeah we've had tricky moments in the last 8 months of course but I think it's good that we have a solid relationship and even though things aren't the same as they were when it was just the 2 of us now we're a family and we will get through the hard times together.
our baby is only 8months old and after months and months of my husband walking out and coming back he's now left me for good. He's been gone nearly 4 weeks and doesn't even ask about the baby anymore, i think he was the final nail in our coffin as far as my husband is concerned at least
