What/how does your relationship change with your husband after having a baby? There was an earlier thread related to this, but I can’t find it.

Spend time focusing on your relationship. Newborns are there to fuck it up. Everything about raising a child taxes a relationship, so you have to make sure you're on solid ground and you stay there. Do date nights. Talk and engage in things other than baby-related things. Make time for each other, and really stick to it. You almost have to nuture the relationship more once the kid is born because you have something big that distracts from the relationship.

This is my biggest fear.

Short answer = it really strains even the best relationships because a child demands absolutely everything you have. The good news is that they give back so much to your family than what you started with and I guess it gets easier on your relationship over time (?)
