Our expert says:
Masturbation is a perfectly reasonable activity, especially in this sort of situation, and is a great natural tranquillizer. I doubt that you'll get 'hooked into it". Some men handle their wife's pregnancy clumsily, and maybe you husband is one of those ; it's a shame he doesn't see that marriage counselling would help both of you, even if it's only you at this stage that feels there is anything wrong. Things will probably improve once the hormonal surges of pregnancy settle down, and you return to normal physically. But keep an eye out for possible Post-Natal Depression afterwards. Maybe if it is possible for you to see a personal counsellor that would help --- and you're so right about the lack of occupation giving you too much time to worry --- explore options to occupy yourself, whether reading, hobbies, friends, whatever
