My boyfriend is being really distant, ever since I found out about the pregnancy. He's not being distant in a 'bad way', I think it's just his way of taking time to get his head around things..... But it makes me feel kind of insecure, and I think *too much* about what he might be thinking, and come to all sorts of irrational conclusions!!! We don't live together, so that is part of what makes it hard - I haven't had the chance to see him, and actually talk properly about what is happening. He's coming over tomorrow for the night, so hopefully we can have a good talk about it then..... or that we can at least cuddle all night & I can feel a bit better because of that!!!!!!

Is anyone elses SO being distant??

I'm right in thinking I should just leave him be for another few days, so he can get his head around all of this, yes?

Hi Emma...!

Sometimes men need kid gloves. You just had a loss, and even though he was there "you' got pregnant again. He has to wrap his head around all of it, and it may just be taking him aback at how much responsibility is coming his way. Talk to him....because even though he's feeling needy, the fact of the matter is, Beanie is on his/her way, and you must start acting like a team!

Keep us updated
my thanks to Claire1979 for the awesome siggy!!
