I can relate to that. My hubby has a pregnancy fetish so he likes me better when I'm pregnant. However, he finds me unattractive inbetween pregnancies, especially so soon after a birth. I'm overweight and gaining more, this isn't helped by me having had 6 other kids. He hasn't complimented me on my appearance for the last few months. Plus, I've had self-esteem issues my whole life and this isn't good for my confidence. You can't force your husband to be attracted to you, but you can try to be intimate with him. Also remember the emotional bond you share, as that's the most important thing you have as a family.

Do you want to have more kids?

I was 17 when I got pregnant with my first, so I know what it's like. I suggest you make an effort to keep in touch with your friends, something that I failed to do. Being an at home mom can get really lonely and so maintaining friendships is important. It was too late for me when I discovered this, which is why my social life is non-existent today. I also recommend that you try to leave the house at least once a day. There have been times in the past when I went for more than a week without stepping foot out of my home. It feels terrible when things like that happened, I felt like I was trapped in the home. However, while I say this to you, I don't manage to get out of the house much, Let alone every day. This is because housework takes up so much of my time.

I hope I helped. If you want any more advice, than just ask.
