Sickness is kicking in and my usually full of vitality wife is feeling the full effects of this pregnancy. I can’t understand how she’s feeling, and I’m doing all I can to help.
What’s becoming clear is that I am totally reliant on this amazing woman. Our home is managed brilliantly by her, everything is under control because she is under control and my life works because she works very hard.
There’s lots of reasons things have ended up this way and the seasons of our marriage have meant we’ve each taken on times of looking after stuff. But right now with me working on the wrong side of London and spending far too much time on trains – I am contributing little to our day to day stuff.
With sickness comes less energy and availability to make this work and so I need to redress the imbalance.
