My partner has been distant for days now and we've have a few rows (Dylan is 6wks old today) Tonight in bed i suggested we may not be together much longer the way things are and he just said don't be stupid. He says theres no one else but was too tired to talk. The only physical contact we've had in last few days was a quick kiss goodbye when he went too work this morning, no hugs, nothing. I feel really insecure about myself/looks since having Dylan but he doesn't seem to care or see it. His mum is also causing arguements between us as i feel shes ovebearing and she keeps wanting to come round, fine for him as he at work all day i'm the one who see's her. she really means well but he thinks i'm nasty about her which causes rows. Maybe he feels left out as Dylan takes up a lot of time but surely he must realise thats normal. I just wish he'd understand how hard it is for me and that i need some affection, even just a hug and say i'm doing ok. I have sent this as reply to prev msg as i'm new instead of starting new discussion. Anyone have any ideas...xx
