I talked to my DH tonight, and he told me that seeing me with a big belly kind of freaks him out! He doesn’t really like to touch my stomach becuase of it. He doesn’t know if its more of the fact that there is a person in there, or that my tummy got so big and fast! My dad was the same way. So I’m curious, is there anyone else who’s SO is freaked out by pregnancy and your body during?

No my husband looks at me now with only sex eyes. It’s almost creepy. I don’t know what it is but he is all about it. Although, we are having less sex because I fall asleep way before I used to, so that could be some of it.

The only concern DH had was towards the end of the pregnancy I was in a lot of pelvic pain and he didnt want to hurt me. It was not the first time for either of us so our sex life never really changed.

DH is pretty freaked out by my belly, too, lol
We’re super active, gym, playing hockey, running, etc., and I think it’s hard for him to see me having a hard time getting around these days.

It doesn’t freak him out completely, but he’s not as into sex when I’m pregnant. With baby #1 right around 6 months he was like “I’m sorry, I feel like I’m crushing you, and with the baby here it’s just weird…”
I was understanding about it. After the baby he was timing that 6 weeks like clockwork, but it ended up being 9 weeks after.

DH likes to see my belly, and he does like to touch it. I think he’s a little scared of hurting me or the baby though. He’s very gentle and careful now, and intimacy has been an issue lately b/c I think it scares him.

Intimacy has been a big issue with us lately. The 1st trimester I didn’t want to, but now I do and it really freaks him out! He feels like he is going to hurt the baby, and he doesn’t like my belly touching him becuase if the baby moves he can feel it! I understand, but it does suck!

My DH has been touching my belly since we found out we were pregnant. He talks to the baby and rubs the belly all the time. Im really lucky, because I thought he would be turned off by my growing belly especially since he was is in total shock when I told him we were pregnant.

It’s been an issue with us too. For weeks and weeks I didn’t want to, and then when I finally started coming around to it, he started getting pretty freaked out. If you add to that the fact that our favorite old positions aren’t working so well anymore (if at all), and it’s definitely a balancing act.
HE hasn’t felt the baby move yet, but I sort of think once he does, he’ll stop even trying completely. No matter how many times I tell him the baby has no clue what he’s up to, he doesn’t really believe me.

I’m not sure if he thinks it’s “beautiful” especially right now (first trimester) since I’m lazy and look like I have a beer belly for a bump. He certainly doesn’t make me feel any different while I’m pregnant. He still tells me I’m beautiful and that I’m not fat…right. He LOVES feeling the baby kick – last pregnancy we were up until midnight once while he was holding my stomach and smiling.
He’s all about sex right now, for some reason sex is just better pregnant. Maybe because we don’t have to worry about preventing it or trying to get pregnant. The only time he denied me sex during my last pregnancy was when I was 9 months, which was fine… I was uncomfortable anyway.

DH didnt mind really. He really liked my pregnant belly for some reason, and thought it was the coolest thing ever to watch my tummy move when the baby moved. He was fine with preggo body and post preggo body because he says its amazing to know I am the mother of his child and he liked seeing the changes. He is weird though. LOL

Granted I’m only starting to pop but he loves it. 🙂 He loves putting his hands on my tummy to feel the baby or put his ears to it to listen for the baby. He claims he’s heard the baby kick. hehe Silly man.
I honestly feel he thinks everything about this is just amazing, as do I. And therefore loves every part about it.
Intimacy hasn’t really been an issue. We’re generally pretty sexual beings and pregnancy has put my sex drive on …ahem….overdrive. 😀

I’m not pregnant yet, but DH insists that pregnant women are hot. We’ll see what he thinks when I actually get there. 😉
