  • Feeling neglected

    Hello everyone,
    This is my first time opening up about my relationship on a website so here it goes...

    My boyfriend and i are expecting a baby girl in june, i am 7 months pregnant. In the begining of the pregnancy we were both excited while nervous due to the fact that we were goin to become parents.

    But now thing have really changed hes been distant from me (we dont live together) we used to text all day non-stop since weve met and try to call each other every whenever we can, or see eachother everyday if possible.

    It has been almost two weeks since weve spent quality time together, he lags an hour or two to reply to my texts and when i call it doesnt seem like he wants to talk.
    He still says i love you and "miss you" ... But i honestly feel hes with me only because were having a baby, not because he wants to be with me...

    I need advice please!

  • Congratulations Jl, you must be excited.

    I think men go through stages regarding being a Father. Can I ask how long you two have been together? And ages.

    He may feel he is not ready if he is young, got excited to start with and he may feel that to remain close means he is married now forever, perhaps fear is setting in on that.

    The hardest thing to do is to take each day as it comes and see where it heads and then there are emotions to the hilt when pregnant.

    Given it's only a few weeks away, try and concentrate on the baby and you and try to be calm but on the same accord, don't allow him to totally have it all his way... See what happens when bubs arrives.


    • Has anything changed at his work? Is his boss watching him like a hawk?
      I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience.
      Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

      From a speech by Patrick Henry on March 23, 1775 at St. John's Church, Richmond, Virginia
