Default DH freak out???

Did anyone else's DH freak out (ie severe anxiety) as you got closer to your due date??? My DH is now unsure he can be a good father or that he even wants to be a father, is worried that something could happen to me and he will be a single father, is having trouble even looking at my belly, and is just turning into a jerk all around...hmmm not what I need right now.

My dh freaked out, not about not wanting to be a dad but if something happened to me,what would he do. Valid worry though, with my medical background. Hopefully your dh will calm down. He'll feel so much better with babe in arms. I was really worried dh was going to be a DORK in delivery but he pulled it together and was my total hero. He took care of everything exactly like I would of wanted AND was totally in love the instant he laid eyes on Carly. I'm pretty sure what your dh is going through is normal and he'll get it together. It does suck though because right now you want sympathy and lots of love. IT IS suppose to be all about you right now anyway. Guys are dorks I figured out. You'll be ok. Once you have your baby you won't even care about dh for a little while anyway.

I think it's normal for them to panic a little bit, like they're suddenly realising it's actually happening (dunno what they've thought has been happening up till now though!
 
) I hope he pulls it together soon for you!

Bonnie, like the other ladies have said, I think it is normal. I mean my dh never touched my belly to feel the baby kick he also has two grown kids, 15 and 18, so I guess it did not really matter to him. But he was a hero for me in the delivery room and after, he cried after seeing her and now would not change the world for anything...she is such a good baby. But hopefully he will come around, you don't need this. I worried that I would not be a good Mother, so I think everyone goes thru something at least he has told you how he feels and maybe you can help each other as it is scary....the fear of the unknown and like Leslie says, you won't want to have anything to do w/ him after the baby is born anyway it is just something women go thru, they think the dh's are dumb!! lol Anyway I hope it gets better for you. Take care and keep us posted on your visits not long now!!! wooohoo, can't wait.
