35 weeks pregnant and my husband needs space

Laurie - posted on 11/15/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




My husband just told me last week that he needs space to assess our relationship. He says it feels stale. While he has assured me that he will be here for me and the new baby I just don't know what to believe. I'm a wreck inside and he doesn't want to discuss it. He says he still loves me and also that he still likes me but I don't know what to do or say.

We have been married almost 10 years and I went through these same feelings 4 years ago. I realized that I truly wanted to stay in my marriage and that I was going through a low point. I understand that he's going through this but can't get over the fact that this is happening now, when I'm so close to having child #2. Any suggestions?

I'm sorry you are going through a rough situation.

When you had these feelings, you allowed yourself the time to figure it out.

Allow him the same. Don't bother talking to him, unless its baby-related (like expenses or anything that ABSOLUTELY requires his presence and input).

He will come back to you. If all he is complaining about is the "stale" feeling, then he is simply feeling bored and needing space- literally.

Point blank, the more you chase, the faster he runs.

Terrible timing for needing space, though

Hope that helps!
