  • Time...give him time and as things progress, it'll get better. If this the first kid? Men can be kinda freaked out by babies.

  • You cant expect him to be as aware and caught up in it as you are... You have no choice but to think about it nearly 24/7... It's still an abstract concept to him. Involve him as much as you can by going to doctor visits, ultra sounds appts, picking out names, setting up the nursery, etc. He'll get motivated about it...

  • How far along? He might not be excited about it till there's something visible.

  • It's different for every man. My husband was more excited than I was when I got pregnant. Have him go to the visits, listen to the heartbeat, see the ultrasounds, etc.

  • From the moment he holds his child it becomes very real.
