I don't know if I am the only one, but I don't expect Dh to go to my dr's appointments with me. The only one I do actually want him to go to is the one where you learn the gender of the baby.

Am I the only one who is fine going to my appts alone?

I go alone, just because it is easier for me to come home and tell him than him go and just look like what did you say to the dr. This will be the first pregnancy he will not be with me to find out the gender, so I can play tricks on him and enjoy it!

It's easier for me too. My appts are usually around 2:30, which means he would have to leave work.

I'd be fine going alone, but it just happens my SO has thursdays off and they've had our appointments on Thursdays. If he had to leave work, he wouldn't be coming along with me.

I usually go in alone he waits in the waiting room. He doesn't like to be in there when they do the internal stuff. He says it takes away the sexual part of me from him. He does however go when they aren't doing that stuff. I really don't care either way. He likes to be there.

DH came to all but one appointment when I was pregnant with Cohen. This time, he has wanted to come, but work doesn't allow for it and i'm fine with it. he feels sort of left out which makes me feel bad, but what are you going to do?

He went to all of mine with my first, we were in England and I didn't drive there. With my second he went to quite a few of them, the ones he could. I've only had one so far and he took a late lunch at work, so he could run up and be with me. He works really close to my Dr's office. I don't know how many he'll be able to come to though. He works everyday and has class almost everyday. I'm ok with it though. I do know he'll make sure he's there for the gender u/s though.

I'd be fine either way, but I kind of like that he wants to go with me.

DH only came to a few the first time because he had to work and most of the time all they'd do was make me pee in a cup, weigh me, do BP, and the check the heart beat. It wasn't anything he needed to be there for. He came to the gender U/S and will do the same this time.

DH had to come to the first appt since the dr needed to ask his family history... He'll be coming to my second appt next week because it's so late in the day that I wouldn't have time to finish up and pick him up at work by 4:30, so we're both just leaving a little early (we share a car). However, I'm going to schedule my other appts in the morning, so he won't be going with. He'll come with to the BIG ultrasound, but that'll probably be it unless the time of my appt happens to fall at the very end of the day again.

Lol, I think I'd look at my DH funny if he told me he wanted to come to one of my OB appointments!

Mine came to all my appointments during my first pregnancy, but we were in the Military and he was on medical leave so he had a lot of time on his hands. This time around, he is medically retired and working full time as well as going to school full time. So my mom watches my daughter while I venture out alone, which is totally fine with me. I just want him there for ultrasounds so he can see the lil munchkin

He came to all of them with DD, a few with DS (got to hear the heart beat & the U/S), and he will come to the ultrasound this time but that's probably it.
