dh is darling husband.

Just tell her that you aren't gonna try for more that you just want to cuddle...

It may or may not work.. I'm not touchy feely either... so cuddling is a big step for me..

and talking usually does the trick.
Tell her you didn't understand before, but now you do and you just want to *try* and be close.

My fiance definately finds pg people more attractive.... just when pregnant women start feeling yucky and such.

My DH is the exact same way. I wasn't so bad with my first pregnancy, but the 2nd one really made me feel just crappy and not want to be intimate in any way (except cuddling!) I agree with NicholeMatthew... Talk to her and really open up as to how you are feeling, tell her you want to cuddle and nothing more and the same with the massages.

The thing to keep in mind is that things will most likely get better in a few weeks!
