2 Bumps

Compliments from husband

So this past weekend my DH and I went out to the mall with the baby, only our second time out in public together with the baby, and I actually dressed cute, no sweatpants. I wore makeup and even put on some perfume, am I being super sensitive because he didn't compliment me. I did it for him bc I am sure he is tired of me being a new mommy and dressing like a bum. Has anyone else been through this? I know I am being sensitive though.

  • yes been there done that...but actually it might be he doesn't care about how you look and loves you for who you are period...I got super tearful the first night we were able to go out without the baby and I did it all, manicure, pedicure, makeup, hair, new clothes and he did not say one thing all night (even when everyone else was all telling me how nice I looked). I asked him why he didn't say anything and he said because you look beautiful all the time so he didn't think it as anything different...I guess he was being nice but I still think he should have said something LOL...

  • Our men always love when we get dressed up. My DH doesn't always compliment me either, but it would be nice wouldn't it?! :) Just keep it up. I know it's hard as a new mommy, but he will definitely notice more if it continues. I'm sure you look great!

  • I will flirt with dh and say something like" do you like my outfit? I wore it for you..." so maybe that's dogging for compliments but I always get the reaction I'm looking for!

  • I still flirt with DH as well <3 It can get pretty interesting. But I know and understand WHY he doesn't always throw out the compliments when I expect him too. Because he thinks I'm beautiful regardless of how dressed up or dressed down I am <3

    So I wouldn't worry too much mama, your hubby may think the same way!

  • My hubby never compliments me.not even if I ask for it. so i know its futile to expect such a thing from him but ofcourse I know how much he loves me.So its ok
