A week ago dh and I found out we were pregnant (first time for us) and straight away he was cautious - didn't want to get excited until the blood test came through. His enthusiasm improved but he's responding far more cautious than I imagined.
Admittedly, I'm only 4 weeks so he is right to be cautious but it's made me realize how challenging this journey will be seeing as I physically experience everything and his experience is different. E.g. In the week I had dull cramps and could definitely feel things were changing in my body...esp b00bs hurting and growing. But dh brushed it all aside insinuating that I'm experiencing all pregnancy symptoms all of a sudden. I do see where he is coming from but I'm not imagining the pain and twinges I've felt!
My dh is quite a romantic and sensitive person and we've been wanting to conceive for awhile...I just feel disheartened with our different reactions. I know the stats for first trimesters but I can't help but feel fully invested and attached to our bubba growing inside of me!
