  • "Honey, thank you for appreciating me. But *MY* body, my choice."

    When you are more comfy you might wear a little less...

  • What a blessing that he is so supportive of your changing body. I would try to embrace it. Tell him you are having a hard time seeing yourself as he does, ask him to help you. Maybe if he specifically tells you what he finds beautiful/attractive about your pregnant body, you will be able to see yourself in a more beautiful way.

  • I would just tell him I don't feel comfortable and that I will be wearing whatever the hell I feel like. But that's just me!

  • Just sit him down and talk to him one night about how you feel. He sounds like he is super supportive so he will probably understand. That being said, it is a LOT more comfy than wearing clothes lol... i just wore undies and it was awesome.

  • Awww..I think he is sweet and very thoughtful to think this know how many men out there who call their pregnant wife/so "fat" no don't feel ashamed pregnant women are awesome, there is nothing like carrying another little person inside and he appreciates that...try to stop seeing it your way and think about his perspective and be thankful he is who he is....I'm sorry if I'm gushy about i t but I have known to many men who degrade pregnant women for being "fat" so when I hear of a sensitive man I like it

  • honestly and bluntly. just tell him you are uncomfortable being naked in bed and prefer to wear clothes. he can't make you go naked! I love my body more when I'm big and pregnant, but I still don't want to be naked in bed. Having all the extra bluges and skin overlapping is just hot and sweaty!

  • I'm in the same situation.(or now getting used to it) I just told him its really hard for me to adjust to my body changing. I also try to see his point of view and embrace the fact that he loves and appreciates it. I think the more time that goes on you'll get used to yourself changing too

  • You are a big girl and can wear whatever you want to bed. Tell him it makes you more comfortable, blame it on the hormones... but as an adult, you can do what you want.

  • ahh, that is so sweet, my ex wouldnt even touch my stomach when I was preggo, he said it creeped him out. I always wear clothes to bed, something to cover up and feel secure in, someone just mentioned wearing his shirt,,,I think that is perfect
