Hubby worried about having a girl

He told me the other day that he is uncomfortable with the thought of wiping a little girl.

He can be wierd about stuff and thinks that it will make him not want to DTD anymore because of having a little girl and seeing her private parts.

I told him that as much as I respect his issues, he has to get over it, because I will not be the only one ever changing a diaper because we are having a girl.

Anyone else have experience with an overly sensitive hubby/SO?

Before I got pregnant, DH told me he'd never change a girls diaper OR give her a bath. He said he doesn't want to be looked at as "weird" since he'd be in contact with a very young humans genitals. I said - I think you're weird for even thinking that, but then I dropped it.

Got pregnant.
It's a girl!

I brought it up again last month - he had totally changed his tune. Not sure what it was (maybe me saying I'm not doing all this by myself) but he's completely on board now.

DH has been pretty quiet about it since we found out it's a girl. i think he is terrified thinking about hormones and protecting her and such. I had the same sort of feelings when we found out DS was a boy though and I got over it.

With our first DH was scared of having a girl, too. However, that quickly changed after she was here. He chips in and does his equal share of diaper changes and baths. I think it is a common fear--especially learning how to take care of something you never had to take care of before. I mean, we're having a boy now and to be honest I'm a little nervous. I also think it all changes when the baby gets here--you're forced to take care of that LO and you get used to things quickly.

I am sure he will get over it quickly when she is here. I feel weird about having a girl just because I have only had boy babies, but I am not worried about it. It's not rocket science.
