I am feeling down tonight because I feel like mine doesn't do anything special unless I make a fuss. I wish my baby had a different dad.

I physically put his hand on my belly once in a while so he can have contact.... he doesn't ask about me or the baby, and in general acts like my pregnancy related complaints are just melodrama. And when I talk about names he'll veto ones he doesn't like, but doesn't contribute, saying "oh, I don't have a head for that," even though he did the first time around.... I have repeatedly asked him to be more involved, and he says he understands, but then doesn't do anything.... on another forum someone suggested doing a pregnancy journal and asking him to contribute, but that isn't working either...... ideas anyone? (sorry EmmetnLindley and Kawa Kamuri, I don't have ideas because I'm in the same boat)
