Hi Ladies, This might not look like a big problem to most of you, but I just wanted to learn how to let my husband understand my feelings. I am pregnant now at the end of first trimester and also a working woman. My husband is supportive in most cases, just that I need to ask him to help me and he is ready to help. He is that type of a person, who never tries to see or understand my feelings unless clearly explained, either calmly or with a fight. Yes we often fight , which lasts for about 30 mins to hour at max . He is a very rough and tough type of a guy, and never sees the need to handle girls in a smoother way.Also this is our second baby and he is very happy about it. Now the problems are - He never understands that I needed a warm touch. He doesn't even touch me these days, I am feeling crazy. I am feeling unloved, una ttractive etc - Though he helps me, he wants to help me only when we are alone, when there is somebody at home, even at this time he is very egoistic, to help me in kitchen etc. -I feel jealous&insulted when the so called friends / thier husbands asks me questions like, why your husband is not dropping you to work/ why he is not doing this/ that etc. I know they take care of their wives very well, even they are not pregnants, and also they have had theor own set of egos in their lives, Its just that they will not let the world know their differences or fights and always act lovey-dovey infront of others. - He never bothers what I am eating? Never cares if fruits are out of stock, or anything that I told that I wanted to eat. I always have to nag him which I don't like. When I say I am not feeling soemtimes he is calm and sometimes he shouts like why are you always complaining? But I have never heard a comforting touch or word from him so far, which I was longing for. Sometimes he makes jokes at me that I am eating too much, but my appetite has increased so much, that even if I don't want to eat I have to eat just to beat the feeling of nausea or dizzyness. Till date he never got anything by himself, that he knows I would love to eat. Its not about food, but its about that affection that I am waiting for. - Sometimes he unnecessarily shouts at me a daughter even when the reason is very small and can be told in a subtle /gentle way. I am a kind of person who always wanted to have peaceful environment at home and I can't see my 5 yo kid when he shouts at her. Even though its her fault, if I were to tell her I would tell her in a subtle way or would try to divert her before shouting etc. But always his first step is shouting. Its not that he doesn't care for me at all though. He offers to do the dishes sometimes, gives a shower to DD(only when what I ask for it).Helps me cleaning house sometimes etc, but I still feel like I want more care and affection atleast in this time, when I have nobody around to take care of me. How do I make him understand this? When ever I open my mouth to talk about this, we end up in an argument, and his immediate reply would be, I am already doing all these things, what else do you expect me to do? He never wants to talk - always gets in to arguments as if I am pointing out. Never tries to hear / understand my feelings.If I don't ask, I feel lonely and depressed sometimes and he will be watching TV / browsing etc doesn't even bother whats going on in me?Any suggestions?
