Have you made him feel the baby move? My DH stays seriously far was from my belly. It freaks him out. With DS, it made me upset and I would push the issue. This time I truly don't care. But it's odd that I may have this baby and he'll never once have felt the baby move. I have DS put his hand on my belly when his brother is active, and his reaction is hilarious! He jumps away, so surprised!
My DH likes touching my belly and feeling the baby, but sometimes even *I* am weirded out by how odd it is to have a wiggling, moving, rolling thing inside of me so I can certainly see why he would react this way. I like Jacob's reaction
I've threatened to make DH touch my belly, but haven't followed through yet.
I pushed it with my first two kids. With this one I don't really care. It's just not his thing.
I do talk to him about it sometimes, though. He's a medical professional who has seen/done all kinds of gnarly things, so I was surprised he reacted this way. I asked if it was just me (since I'm his wife and lover), or is it all pregnant ladies. He said it was all pregnant ladies. lol
I took DH's hand once and put it on my belly when baby was moving. His response "oh my god I'm so glad you carry our babies and not me cause that is so weird!" That's enough. I'm not going to push it and it really doesnt bother me. I was more concerned my first pregnancy because I thought maybe there was some sort of subconscious correlation between him not wanting to touch my belly and him not wanting the baby. But I know what an amazing dad he is and how much we want this baby so I dont worry about it.
