I don't know what to do about Joe. He wants nothing to do with the baby or me. I can care less about me but the baby now, come on. I know hes scared. He won't even take the DNA test. that right there tells me he going to try and dip out after Job Corps. I'm not sure if i can have this baby. What do i tell them when they ask about their dad? Oh man. I feel really sick. What can I do to get him to talk to me?
About Your Man
We are nine weeks pregnant and I feel like @#$#@. My husband doesn't get it. His attitude is that since I don't "look" pregnant then I shouldn't be complaining.
I'll be honest. Right now I AM a grouch after feeling exhausted, nauseous 24/7, and then trying to juggle my normal routine (at work and home.)
I don't expect him to make it better but can't a guy have SOME sympathy?

I'm 12 weeks pregnant and experiencing some complications. I've been put on pelvic rest. How do I get my husband to understand that it means nothing can enter? The rest is till 13-14 weeks so there are another 1 -2 weeks yet.
I don't really have the interest in sex right now either. How can I convey that so he understands?
Trimester 3 and we are into the playoffs! It's business time! As you start to burst at the seams, he may be finally coming out of denial. The pregnancy is pretty real now and his worries will start to turn toward you and the baby. What are his concerns as the birth draws near?
The second trimester brings a bump and a few other telling signs that you are carrying a real person. It's starting to hit home with your guy that he really is going to be a dad. Is he mature enough to be a parent? How will your relationship hold up? Will he ever have sex again? This is what he may be worried about for the coming months.
Your partner is freaking out about the pregnancy! Since during the first trimester he's not going to be able to see any real evidence that a baby actually exists, it's likely to be about intangible things. Here's a list of common concerns for first time dads during the first trimester.
Bonding with baby is typically far easier for mom. For dads, however, that lack of physical awareness contributes to a greater challenge connecting with their little one while in utero. Still, it is very much possible.
Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
My name is Kim. For the past few weeks now I have been having dreams that I am pregnant.Sometimes, I am in mid pregnancy and I can literally feel the baby moving. Then there was a dream that I was only 2 months along.
I will admit, I am wanting to be a mother very much. It is a strong desire. I do not know what the dreams mean, if anything. Yet, they are so real. At the time of the dreams, I wasn't thinking of it at all.
I also feel a boy. What is the meaning to these?
Thank you so much.
I just found out that my boyfriend (the baby's father) takes drugs in his system. He takes cocaine.
I want to know if that will affect my baby by my pregnancy, and how?
Well here I am, 37, mum to a dear daughter who has just turned 10 - literally a few days after we conceived. We are foster carers and have been for 5 years now, and adopted a lovely little girl who is now 4 and a half. We are fortunate to have such wonderful daughters and have a wonderful relationship with them both.
