Have you discussed him being a becoming a stay at home parent once baby is here? What maternity leave are you getting? 

really he needs a purpose and something to sink his teeth into. Are there any volunteering opportunities that he could do?

fridakahlo :  where are you living? Might help us to give more practical help.

 

well for now, it might be better to work on getting him comfortable with the idea of being a Stay-At-Home Dad for the foreseeable so you can make plans and concentrate on baby. He might really take to it and love being home once baby arrives. I’ve recently become and Stay-At-Home Mom and it was something that was never in my life plan until I had kids. 

he might now be getting to the point of not being able to see past this period and getting a bit depressed. You should perhaps stear him towards some counselling or similar support.
