At the moment being pregnant I feel more in love with him and our relationship is pretty great. Can't say about after baby yet so we will see.

Well, I already had a child when I met DH so we were kind of parents from the very beginning. Well, I was anyway, and he took on that role over time. Our second is due in a month and I definitely felt like this pregnancy has brought us even closer. He often expresses his wish that he could have been there from the beginning with my son.



I'll let you know after the baby gets here and sleep deprivation sets in.

I feel closer to my husband. It is amazing watching him with our son and seeing how much he adores him. I can also tell his feelings towards me are stronger. A couple days after our son was born he thanked me for giving him a child and actually cried, which is uncommon for him.

It brought us closer yes BUT the first few months was hard. We had no idea exactly HOW hard it was to spend time together plus no sleep, ect... It did bring tension which led to tiny uncalled for arguments. Not "fights" but just a little arguing. When people say things will change, its generally from tension of "adjusting" i would say lol

Yeah I felt that wat too for the first week or so, I would look at him holding the baby and think how awesome he was. That lasted about a week till I has the only one getting up for night feedings and diaper changes, lol.
Now with two we barely get anytime to ourselves and when we do we are just completely exhausted to even be "romantic" and with the stress of the kids from just everyday stuff it's easy to forget about each other.

If you're truly in love, it won't change.



With my ex, it changed for the worse. I hated him and everything about him pretty much afterward.



My husband, our bond is greater. We are so in love and he is an amazing, amazing man. I fall in love with him all over everytime I see him with our son and listen to him talk about how excited he is about our two on the way.



We bickered a little more than usual the first few weeks but that was just exhaustion ha.

Its usually stress and financial. My husband and I argue every once in a while about those things, but it never drives a wedge between us. For some people, it does.

I was 19 when I had my first. She wasnt a planned baby at all, and it was shocking to say the least. My SO stepped up and he got a better job and we got our own place and I THOUGHT things would be great. But I dont think he was prepared for the life change. I couldnt ask him for ANY help without hearing about how he worked all day blah blah.. so you can make a f**king bottle for 3 seconds???

It was bad. But as she got older things got better. and then once we had our 2nd and 3rd he really really stepped up and helps all the time with everything, which is nice. i think it just depends.. i think in young unplanned pregnancies it can be harder. but idk, thats just from my own experience.

Stress, exhaustion, minor diagreements. Money. I know some women who resented that their SO's had to go back to work.

i can't really say.. we were dating when i got pregnant, got married while i was pregnant so we've never been married without being pregnant/having kids(we have a 1 and 3 yr old).. but it was really hard for us at first going from just doing whatever we wanted being horny all the time to not being able to do things so easily(going on dates, etc.) and me having no sex drive at all... buuut right now our marriage is better than ever so idk, it was awful the first 2 years so things seem to be getting better lol
