Sorry to hear you're feeling down hun , men are insensitive sometimes n because they aren't feeling the physical symptoms they can't / wont empathise
Think they find it easier when we begin to show , n sometimes they don't actually relate to it being a baby until it actually arrives- sounds silly I know but they are quite basic at the end of the day ,
But that doesn't make it easier for you, at the minute .like the girls said you might need to sit down n have a chat with him , but please don't feel like you are being a nuisance , you are doing the most amazing thing in the world n he should be treating you like the fabulous woman that you are x x x

You certainly aren't being a nuisance and I think a lot of other ladies would agree that you probably aren't alone that you feel like that and that your OH isn't supportive. I certainly know how you feel.
At the start I was constantly feeling sick and was very tired and my OH once said 'I hope I haven't got to put up with this for another 8 months', which really hurt but the day he actually heard me being sick he was very sympathetic. I just think they think we are faking it because they will NEVER understand what it feels like or what we're going through. I have also had bits of bleeding throughout my pregnancy, once at 8 weeks which lasted 5 days and then once at 17 weeks which lasted 6 days and my OH had a go at me saying I had to stop panicking and that I was over reacting when I said I wanted to go to A&E. Again I just don't think he has got his head round the whole pregnancy thing yet and to be honest I don't think he will until the baby is actually here or until he can feel the baby kicking. I am currently 19+2.
So you certainly aren't alone and you aren't being a nuisance...our men just clearly don't know how to react or give sympathy ha x
