Being a mum is the hardest and most underpaid job that exists!
Hold your head high and be proud of the fact that you have been able to spend so much time at home with your child up to this point.
You may not be contributing financially but you are contributing to the happiness and health of your child, not to mention providing a safe and secure environment where she can feel loved and accepted and special. this is far more important than bringing a few dollars into your bank account each week.
obviously if you have to work, you have to work. but dont allow yourself to feel belittled as you are doing the most thankless job that exists and i'll bet a darn good job at that.
Be proud of yourself and enjoy the time that you have together before she grows up. I would not put up with being made to feel like crap. Next time he points out that you are not contributing financially, tell him to stick it!
Nothing to see here folks!!
The price of daycare these days its often not even worth returning to work lol
Dont listen to what he says, men are arrogant pigs and i used to get the same from mine. They dont understand what its like being a mum. As hard as it may be, dont do anything you dont want to. Try and enjoy as much of the time as you can with your daughter without him souring it.
Its a shame men cant appreciate us women more. It really is.
Why do you need to go back to work so soon?? Is there repayments needing to be made? IS his job high paying?
I have 3 boys!!!
So this is my theory on the situation. You do what you think is best for your babies and your soul and he should be supportive of that.

But then I am only at home with 7 weeks to go, lets wait and see if he changes his tune when the baby is born!

I think your partner is being extremely mean, this is a very special time for you and your daughter and they grow up so quickly. You are contributing beyond belief by looking after your daughter, sorry I'm not helping much but I cant believe he'd make you feel bad for this. Whats more important, money or your daughter?
Your partner needs a good slap up the side of the head! No offence to you but sheesh he's not being very kind or understanding to you.
