Everyone told me having a baby would be the end of sleep as we know it, but I don't recall a single person telling me about the stress it puts on a marriage. It seems we constantly argue, I feel myself being resentful cuz I have to stay home in my "cave" taking care of "baby tyrant" while my husband gets to go work and out to eat for lunch and interact with adults. He doesn't handle the baby well when he cries at all and he can't seem to understand why I "ACT" so tired all the time. It's really frustrating, on top of that if I bribe him to take the night feeding on a weekend day when he's off, he insists I be up by 8am to take over care for the baby...I haven't slept through the nite in over a year, and haven't slept past 8:30am (after being up most of the night with at most 4 hours of sleep & not necessarily at one time) since my son was born almost 4 months ago!
