Featured: Husband on board?
Hi, my name is Vanessa and I am 16 weeks pregnant with baby #3. I have two boy's from a previous marriage, and this will be my current husband's 1st baby. I am 28 and he is 35. This baby was planned, and we got pregnant after trying for only one month! I was so surprised and excited that it happened so quickly. My issue now is that my husband was so on board with having a baby and now that I am pregnant, he doesn't seem very interested. It is quite upsetting at times for me because I feel alone in this. I can't get his opinion on baby names, nursery ideas ....pretty much anything baby related. I'm not scheduled for an ultrasound by my doc for 4 more weeks, and I thought about going to a different clinic and having the 3D ultrasound done sometime in the next week to find out the gender, in hopes that it would get him excited once we know what we are having. I am starting to feel depressed, I have been terribly sick with this pregnancy, unlike my others, and I can't even get him to get me a bowl of ice cream from the freezer when I am feeling well enough to eat! I know I am hormonal & emotional right now, but I don't think I am asking much from him. I understand that he may be a little nervous about becoming a father for the first time to a newborn, but he is great with my two boys and I know he will be a great dad. It hurts my feelings that he isn't more supportive right now. Have any of you ladies been through a situation like this? I really don't have anyone that I can talk to about this, so any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks for letting me vent!
