My partner has three children from a previous relationship and although none of them were planned, he loves them very much and I wouldnt change that for the world. I never thought he would want anymore, but one night he told me he did, so now I am 39 weeks. Now he doesnt seem as interested as he was in the beginning. He tells me hes excited, and sometimes it seems like he is, but at times he seems like he couldnt be less interested. Also when we are choosing equipment I never seem to get much input as he always has a reason from the past for why we should or shouldnt buy. Everyone seems to think it must be great having a Dad whos seen it and done it all, but having to listen to all the baby stories with his ex really seems to take the special element out of the pregnancy. I feel like im constantly being compared to her and am worried my little one will be compared to how his other three were. Is there anyone else in a relationship like mine as I could really use some advice on how to deal with this. I know I should talk to him, and I have tried, but its turned into quite a touchy subject. Any advice would be appriciated.
