Marital Problems

Just wondering. Has anyone else experienced a spouse who is unhappy about the pregnancy? I am 9 weeks and have been under lots of stress because my husband has decided that he's not happy with his life. I am very excited, but having a hard time because he doesn't share my feelings. We had some marital problems before, but things were better, which is when I got pregnant. Now he's very freaked out. We're planning on seeing a counselor next week. I know that all the stress is not good for the baby and I am very worried.

My hubby freaked on me a little when I really started to express that I was ready to have our first. It is hard for men sometimes, they wonder what will happen, and if you will love the baby more than him. I say give the counseling a chance and you will probably see him come around. You are still very early on and it may take awhile for the whole concept of being a father to sink in completely and for him to become comfortable with the idea. Is this your first? Was the pregnancy planned?

Thanks. Yes, this is my first. It wasn't really planned, but it wasn't being prevented either and my husband knew that. He kept going back and forth about starting a family. Sometimes he really wanted to try and a couple of weeks later he would say that he wasn't ready. Maybe after we hear the heartbeat and I'm further along it will seem real to him. I'm hoping.
