I really really don’t want to jump to conclusions, but everything your husband is saying reeks of a guilty conscience.
HSV2 has an incubation period of anything from a few days to a month, but generally it’s about 2 weeks. If you first showed symptoms 2 years in to your relationship, and you were faithful to your husband, then I’m really sorry but he probably gave you HSV2.
You already know he was cheating at the start of your relationship.
An innocent party would not usually immediately assign blame to someone who has a health issue.
Not only is your partner acting abominably, and displaying high levels of ignorance, I’m afraid he may have been unfaithful to you.
You need to have a candid talk with him and find out what’s going on. It might be best to do so with a third party present, maybe a counsellor, as from the sound of it he will not be inclined to open up, and as you are in a vulnerable position at the moment, what with the pregnancy and everything.
Also- 1. Your body is yours, to do what you want with. There is nothing wrong with having had multiple sexual partners. If it was a guy who had the same experiences, he wouldn’t be shamed for it. Your partner should be ashamed of himself for having such a backwards attitude.
2. HSV2 and HPV are both very common and absolutely nothing to be ashamed of.
3. Don’t worry about your baby. The chances of passing on genital warts through childbirth are very small.
