Husband hurt my feelings

OH I am so upset with my husband! The other day he told me he "Doesn't like the way (I) look right now", but he "Still loves me". What the hell? I'm 8 weeks with my second, and I've gained 3 lbs - all in my tummy. I just can't get over it. He said he was just "being honest" but it really hurt me. Also - he hasn't been very sweet to me about feeling sick, tired, etc. Normally he is a very kind and gentle person, so this is very out of character for him to say something so negative to me. Now I'm not speaking to him much and things are getting icy.

Any advice? Is this just my hormones/his fears?

Sit him down and tell him he upset you and ask him point blank if he is worried about this baby. It may be money worries or job security that he is thinking about. Give him chance to explain himself. What he said is bang out of order and at least your are own an apology!

That is awful and totally uncalled for. What is interesting is that he doesn't usually talk to you this way. I hate to be a worry wart, but something's going on! Maybe he's just nervous about the new baby!
