My dh didn't really fawn over my belly last time, and he isn't this time, either. He only feels for kicks when I suggest it, mostly because I'm the one that knows when the baby is active and when he's most likely to be able to feel something. I tell him when the baby's active, and he's always interested and responds with talking about the baby, but he's not all about feeling my belly or talking about my belly....
I don't know, though...I feel that in every other way, he's SO involved. I guess the lack of "belly-specific" attention
hasn't been on my radar. I'm not that concerned, though. He's excited to be a dad, he's loving and protective toward me, and he's been a great dad to our boys. I think guys don't obsess about bellies as much as we do...afterall, we're the ones growing the bellies. For women, we feel everything happening in our belly, and that bump symbolizes so much more because it's a physical connection between our bodies and the baby. I can see how a guy wouldn't have that.
If it starts to really bother you, you should bring it up to your dh. Hiding feelings is never healthy. If you do bring it up, though, just be aware that it might never have occurred to him that your belly is such a source of meaning to you. He might just need to hear you talk more about what _you_ feel about your belly...and maybe ask him to do certain things to bond with you and the belly
It's always funny to ask guys to talk to the baby and snuggle the belly, but hey--it's worth a shot. Coaching, like the previous poster said, can be good. Especially for a first-time daddy.
