He says he wants the baby but he doesn`t seem to be excited

Hi Alex,
I wil be 20 in april and am 7 weeks pregnant. i have been with my partner for 5 years and he says he wants the baby/s but he doesnt seem to be excited or really bothered by the issue. i have had 4 previous miscarriages since we have been together do you think that could be the problem as i dont understand what he is feeling.
Also, i have been really sick the past couple weeks the doctor says its normal but i have been told i chouldnt be sick until i am 16-20 weeks, do you have an idea what is wrong?
Thankyou so much, Tarlia.

Answer: Hi Tarlia, Thank you for your enquiry. It is normal to get morning sickness in early pregnancy and then it lessens from 12 – 16 weeks. Partners usually don’t get too excited until they can see something happening – your tummy growing and the baby moving. Best wishes, Alex
