I'm 24 yrs old and pregnant with my first. My husband and I have been married just over 15 months now. He has a 6 yr old son from his previous marriage. Just a lil background...
Anyways, my husband says that he is excited to be having a baby, but wants nothing to do with any pregnancy stuff. He tells me that I CAN'T get fat, and have 3 months to get back to what I was pre-pg. I can't waddle, I can't wear any tighter tops that are snug on my belly. In his eyes pregnant women shouldn't get any special treatment. He gets upset if I bring home any new maternity clothes. He told me that we have to have a boy, and that if it's a girl we have to put her back....he doesn't want a girl. Well, yesterday we found out that we are indeed having a girl. After they had determined it's a she, he was no longer interested in the Ultrasound. He sat back and as if he were bored. Afterwards I asked him if he would go with me to buy her first outfit. He responded with "it's not really my thing." He's put out with me because my morning sickness has come back. I couldn't get him to go for a walk with me if my life depended on it. He's annoyed with me for listening to the baby's heartbeat everyday with my doplar...he thinks it's pointless. He refuses to help me think of girl names, or to do any baby shopping of any sort. He cuts me off or changes the subject when I'm talking to him about the baby, her development, or just plain baby stuff.
Is this just typical of most men? Am I being over sensitive?
