I need advise. My Husband and I are expecting our first child and I'm about 20 weeks pregnant and it seems more and more that he is getting uncomfortable having sex. I don't know how to make him feel better about it. When he trys to go around it and avoid it I feel unwanted and not sexy. Does anyone have any advise?

My husband is more than O.K. with making love, if anything I am the one who isn't all that into it. We have done other things other than intercourse to please each other. Just talk about it, what about positions where your pregnant tummy isn't facing him? I don't want to be graphic but, look up positions for pregnant sex. That is a good way to start. Keep trying things, ask him what would make him more comfortable.

maybe take the pressure off of sex and try other things until he is more comfortable

He says that he feels almost as if someone is watching now. He didn't start feeling weird until I started showing. I also know that I am going through a mess of emotions right now and I know that he still loves me and everything, but when the opportunity presents it's self he's tired or something, and 2 months ago he would never turn it down.

Have you asked him and got a full answer as to why he's seeming uncomfortable?
