My husband was like a rock for me during all of our ups and downs, but I know that there was a huge toll on him. He was worried about losing me, worried about the pregnancies, wanting another baby after our son died, but not wanting to pressure me. Now that we are done with the baby-making phase of our marriage, he has opened up to me a lot more about how hard this was on him. These issues can make or break a relationship, and we count ourselves very lucky that our relationship withstood the pressure. My best advice is to talk about the fact that this is hard, when our son died, my husband and I talked about the fact that a lot of relationships don't make it through losing a child and we talked about that a lot. Take care of yourselves.
