Despite working 40+ hours a week and 2 summer school college courses, he's been in pretty high spirits and still very helpful around the house and with me when he IS home. I think he really does feel for me and the fact that he did this to me lol.
He has good days and bad. He's working 12-14hr+ days and is usually too busy to worry or stress too much. But it hits him once every few days and he hates that he's missing so much. It's really hard to find a balance of keeping him updated and included while not making it harder on him that he's not here. I sent him some Daddy parenting books for father's day and he's trying to read up when he has a little time. It's still hard for him to accept that he's likely going to miss the actual birth. But the fact that he's getting to come home at all for this is amazing and all that really matters. I can't wait to see him!

Even though I am 36 weeks pregnant, I don't even think he realizes. I can't carry laundry upstairs and he looks exasperated when I ask him to do it for me. I don't think he realizes how much it hurts to do some things now. He was VERY loving and intuitive with my first pregnancy, but with this one he's just like "Eh, you are an old pro now... you can carry a toddler and laundry up 2 flights of stairs."
