I am absolutely no help in this area but wanted to post a big Congratulations to you!!! Most men don't get excited until they see the belly getting bigger or even when baby arrives. For them many times it's not real...they don't have the symptoms, hormones and initial feelings toward the growing baby.

My husband isn't too into pregnancy. He tried to get excited this time around but it just doesn't compare to how I feel about being pregnant. You can try starting a scrap book and have him take pics of you. Sorry that's all I can think of at the moment. Good luck with getting him excited!

Not sure my dear, you can try getting him to go to all the appointments with you and hear the baby's heartbeat, but Dad's usually don't get too excited until they are holding the little one in their arms.

theres a saying. A mom becomes a mother the day she finds out shes pregnant, A dad becomes a father the day their child is born. Guys just dont understand your connection. The bigger your belly gets and especially when he can feel it kick he will start realizing that its really a child in there. but if you want talk about all the things they can do together. and really try to get him involved with planning the room, names, everything like that.

I agree with Jessica, Dusty went to everyone of my appts but he didnt get way excited until I called him and told him my water had broke. He couldnt really connect to Addie because he wasnt going through all that I was.

Thank you Kiliki for my beautiful siggy!

My Bf wasn't very understanding at first. Actually he didn't start coming around to the idea until we found out he was a boy at almost 17 weeks. At 20 he would still freak a lil and now at 27 he loves the idea and is more excited then I am. He kisses and talks to my belly, it just takes them time to come around.

I think when he starts seeing your belly getting bigger and comes to the scans with you the baby will be more of a reality for him.
There are many books on the market for "Daddies to be", maybe you can buy one of them for him?
