    my boyfriend was the same, i send him pics of my bump and everytime she does something new i tell him about it and encourage him talk to bump as much as possible...but still pregnancy is so much about the mum dads often feel left out he'll be more involved when the baby comes :)

    My boyfriend felt the same too, so I got him a frame engraved and put two of our scan photos, now he seems to feel better, but that might just be because it doesn't feel to him like I'm keeping baby for myself.. But that's what worked for us :) hope you can find a solution!

    it's hard for men to be as involved as us as they are on the outside really. We're the ones with the baby growing inside us and they dont get a bond until baby arrives. maybe try getting him to hold your belly whilst your having cuddles. and tell him as soon as somethings happening on the inside. Talk about you 3 as a family aswel show him he is involved by planning everything together :flower:

    I agree with thinking of names ^^
    And once he can feel LO kicking for himself and you get a bump he's more likely to talk to LO :)
    You could also let him know how big LO is/what's happening weekly :)

    i talk to my oh as the baby iykwim... like if i want some thing i call him daddy or if she moves i grab his hand as fast as i can before she stops. my oh was funny until we found out what we were having then he changed and the excitement kicked in also we had a bet on what we were having and that kinda helped him along and the fact he won was just a bonus!
