Ok, there have been times during this pregnancy where I wanted to smack DF over stupid things or I really wanted space to myself because I was moody or crabby. But the last week, I've been SO clingy and all I want to do is spend every waking moment with him and cuddle him and kiss him and just be near him. Luckily he's pretty amenable LOL. Usually though I am someone who NEEDS alone time to function and stay sane and as much as I love him I look forward to having my alone time when he's at work. But the last week I want to cry whenever he leaves the house and I find myself feeling lonely and sort of lost without him around. That's never happened to me before - I'm very independent - and it's strange. I'm not complaining, we've had lots of awesome bonding time recently and we enjoy each other's company so much, plus I know we need to enjoy this one-on-one time while we're still a family of two, I'm just curious.

Anyone else feeling particularly emotionally needy/clingy with SO?

I've felt that way toward DH most of my pregnancy. Now I just want to strangle him lately for the smallest things lol I'd rather go back to being lovey to him.

ME! I almost cried the other day when he left for work and then almost cried again one night when I felt like he didn't cuddle me enough. While I love him very much and enjoy being with him, I've never been THAT clingy. he's been having a tough time with the whole "provider" thing since I'm not working. It completely stresses him out. So when he isn't quite right and isn't talking much, I've convinced myself that he hates me and he's going to break up with me any day or right after the baby is born. It's ridiculous.

I haven't. Grr, mostly I just get irritated by him. Which is strange because I usually really affectionate. I feel bad.

My KIDS, on the other hand, I am getting really clingy to. I just can't believe Gabe isn't going to be the baby anymore and I get teared up just thinking about it. I also have been bugging my daughter for cuddles too because I just can't believe how big she is getting and how are family dynamics are about to change.

Def not clingy but DH is very attentive to us and making sure I'm feeling OK and baby but not in a smothering way. Especially to our baby girl...he always goes out of his way to rub my belly or kiss it or just put his hand on it when we're in bed...kind of like his way of telling baby girl he's there. Its sweet =)

Yes! I am not normally a clingy or touchy feely type but lately I have felt the same way you have. When DH walks in from work I get crazy excited.

I haven't been particularly clingy, but I do dread the days he works because I'd rather have him home. I'm pretty independent, but I've always been a little this way with DH ... even when he drives me CRAZY. Odd *shrug*

I guess I sort of am. I want him here all the time and I keep bugging him to help me or sit with me and just talk to me.

He's not too into it though. He helps but on his own terms and he even then he will find something else to do in the middle of it. Like now....we were cleaning things up and organizing and he stopped to Skype with his parents.

It's probably just my hormones but I feel like he doesn't want to spend time with me anymore.

PurpleStar - I think part of the clingyness for me is that DF is so excited for this baby and has been so supportive and involved. Like you said about your DH, he's always talking to my belly and kissing it and telling baby he loves her. I think that makes me feel so grateful for him and so attracted to him, seeing how much he loves us and how happy he is, and we sort of bond over being so excited to meet her.

Nope. I'm just the exact opposite here. I was like this with Alex, too. I don't want to be touched AT ALL.

This exactly. I think I'm much more lovey and clingy in general and so DF acting the way he normally does (he is not an overly touchy feely kinda guy) is making me feel like he doesn't want to spend time with me. It's weird because it normally wouldn't bother me at all cause that's just how he is but lately I've been doing a lot of pity party crying over it.

I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling this way. DH keeps saying things like " I just sat/talk/helped/etc with you for X amount of time..."

Somehow I'm still feeling like he's not around. I cried when he wasn't hungry at the same time as me and went to go work on the babies' room instead of having dinner with me. I'm so emotional and any other time I wouldn't have even reacted to these little things.

Not only have I been more clingy, but DH has been toward me as well. When we both get home from work, he just wants to sit on the couch and cuddle all night, rub my belly, etc. So, at least we both feel that way so we're not annoying each other. lol

I am always needy! Being pregnant is no exception for me. At night when we go to bed I'm always asking him why he doesn't love me because of some silly reason like his hug wasn't long enough, he didn't sit close enough to me on the couch, etc. I'm ridiculous.
