That is wonderful. DH and I were joking about it last night. Because with my DD he was rubbing my leg and I totally snapped and was like stop doing that LOL. But he does great and I am thankful to have him. I think a supportive DH/SO is so important.
When I was in labor, before I had my epidural, he kept trying to touch me and talk to me, and I didn't want anything to do with him. I think it scared him off, because once I got my epidural, he didn't try to touch me or talk to me. When it came time to push, he was really good about holding my leg for me, but sometimes got sidetracked and had to be reminded by the nurse to hold it up.

With our first the nurses tricked him into holding my leg and he couldn't squirm out of it without looking like a total ***. I didn't really want him doing that either, but in the moment, I couldn't tell him to go sit down. With our second, he was sitting on the couch reading a newspaper in the room. Apparently he signed some papers for me since I was in no shape to do so. But otherwise.... didn't need him or anyone else.
