After going for the 12 week scan and noticing that my partner seemed distant ( physically and emotionally) especially seeing the baby jumping around, my partner announces that he feels different towards me and walks out with no chance of reconciliation!! After 2 miscarriages , I thought this could be a wonderful time together, how wrong I was!

I can't say. Maybe the best thing right now is to give him some space and THEN address the issue with him. Perhaps he is freaked out. Perhaps he's scared of getting attached to this baby. It is hard to know.

I thought that at first but have been shocked by his attitude this week. He has walked out said that the relationship is over; even though it seems that this pregnancy will be successful. He has no kids, I already have an 11 year old daughter from a previous relationship. Do you think he is freaking out and will return?

If you've had 2 miscarriages, maybe he has a fear that he may have to deal with another one? I know how hard my 2 miscarriages were on my relationship, and when I was pregnant with my daughter, my husband was a little distant initially, possibly protecting himself against having to deal with yet another disappointment AND my reaction to it (I reacted quite badly the second time). But I was also still dealing with my grief over the other two miscarriages as well, I just didn't realise it at the time.
