My husband will see me looking blue and ask me what is wrong. I will tell him that I am having a hard time with pregnancy hormones. I feel emotional and kind of crabby. I may tell him that I am feeling nervous about all the changes happening at once and it is keeping me from sleeping some nights. He will look at me and then start talking about something else. He will start watching tv or something. I am not asking him to do anything but why ask me if you don't even respond? A simple we are in this together and a hug would be nice. If I get upset with him he asks why and I will say that it confuses me when he asks how I am but ignores the answe. He usually cuts me off to say he is here for me. I just think then why are you being this way. (Idon't say that though) What would you think or do?Answer Question

OP: I don't expect him to do anything. That is just it. I just want him to be himself. But I also don't want him to ask me what is wrong and then ignore me. Because he is a very sensitive guy. He does NOT fit that stereo type you say about men. He is very sensitive and in tune with emotions. He is actually too emotional for me. I am more like the stereo typical guy. I put on a tough front. But the pregnancy hormones have been kicking my butt. I guess that is what the real issue is then with him. I guess because I am usually the tough one it has thrown him to see me like this. Maybe he is unsure how to respond to it. But it is certainly not because he is a 'man' and can't handle feelings. I don't think you should stereo type men. Thanks for the comments though. Me not agreeing with you actually helped me see this objectively. I am going to go hug my husband now.
