it seems like ever since we found out we are expecting again and that it's another girl, my husband has been very distant towards this baby. It makes me nervous because I'm afraid he won't love her or play with her as much as he does out older daughter. He was very involved with my first daughter all through the doctor's appointments and even loved to feel her kick, with this baby though, he doesn't seem to care. Like at all. All we have done basically is argue. He always wants to go off with just me and him and I don't like always leaving our older daughter with everyone else. I understand that he wants some alone time with me, but everytime I want to go somewhere with the three of us (my husband, older daughter and I) He doesn't really ever want to go. He'd rather sit and play World of Warcraft or X-Box 360. He is almost always critizing me because we disipline our daughter differently. He's always yelling at her and that's not my approach. I'm just so stressed and so tired of the fighting. I want to be able to go through a week without one arguement and that hasn't seemed possible. I've tried talking with him, I've tried explaining the way I feel and I've tried compromising. Where once a week my brother watches our daughter so him and I can go for a walk or my brother takes my daughter for a walk to my dads. I'm just really sick of fighting. Anyone have any advice???
