I Fell In Love With My Baby, And Out Of Love With My Husband

I feel so sad some days....not the baby blues...I am so happy and in love with my 11 month old, but because I feel the love I once had for my husband leaving.  It's the little things I guess.  I mean, he is an amazing father.  Very attentive, loving, doting.  He loves our son just as much as I do, and he helps out more than a wife/mother could ask.  I just don't feel the same when we touch anymore.  Before the baby I couldn't get enough hugs and kisses, but now I pull away when he tries.  He is starting to feel more like a roommate to me, and it is hurting my heart.  I try to brush it off as just being too tired from the long day, or telling myself it's just a phase, but the longer I feel this way, the less love I feel for the amazing man I married.  I just don't know how to turn it around.

I don't have specific advice for you but I wanted to say thank you. I thought I was the only one that felt like this and I'm in tears now to know that it's not just me being mean. I will take the advice of the previous respondent.

OK take a deep breath. Let it all out. Now understand that A LOT of women go through this. Hormone changes going through pregnancy cause a great deal of problems. You also now have a great deal of responsibility, and time consuming. Discuss with your dr. perhaps some blood tests need to be ran to see if you are out of balance. If they are not, then seek counseling. It could be all the changes that have taken place. Don't give up yet.
