He's sort of indifferent...I dont' think he's connected with this pregnancy as much. He's said before that Collin was never that real to him until he was actually born. I think it's harder for men to bond. Neither of us has actually done much to prepare this time. I've bought some clothes and cloth dipes and made her a blanket and stuff, but that's it. I did our registries, etc. I am forcing him to be involved in the shower though It's co-ed because I hate being the center of attention. I expect him to get more involved in the next couple of months.
He's excited, stressed, and nervous. He's excited to meet this one and get to hold her. He hasn't been able to feel this baby like the last two because of the placenta placement.
He's very stressed about getting the house ready - finishing the basement, moving DS into the other bedroom, getting the crib down and set up, etc - in addition to doing more housework and his regular job.
He's nervous about my health and baby not being born too early, and what kind of health she might be in when she's born.
DH is super excited and super supportive. I really don't know what I would do without him. He does everything for me, and makes me put my feet up since they get so swollen. He has hand made a shelf for Parker's room, painted his whole room, made letters for above his bed, checks our registry to see what we have gotten, and as I am typing this, went for groceries by himself because he wanted me to lay down with my feet up since they are so swollen and my back hurts. I honestly could not ask for anything better.
Thank you brie_91 for my Siggy!
He says he's excited to meet the baby, but isn't interested in buying anything for baby, or touching my belly, or helping with the baby's room, or even asking if I need help to do chores around the house.
He says he wants to get the carpets cleaned and the ducts vacuumed or something before the baby comes but we don't have the money for that so he does nothing. We also need him to sell his car so we can have some money to live off of since his work load has slacked off and he hasn't done that yet either.
DH is so excited for his baby boy. He wasn't nervous or anything when I was pregnant with Jenna, and isn't this time around either. He's taking about 4 months parental leave from work starting August 1, so I think he's extra excited to be able to give all of his attention to his kids when the baby is born. He's really involved in picking out paint colours, and giving his opinions on other things when asked, and he loves when he actually catches the baby moving. He felt the baby hiccuping last night and it made him so happy.
Dh has been amazing. He loves feeling her move and kick, and he is always rubbing my belly and talking to her. Its so sweet. He also helped me pick out everything that has to do with her. I think he is more excited than me! lol.
Thank you so much AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggy!
DH is indifferent at the moment. He doesn't like to touch my belly because it freaks him out and he's not into shopping for baby stuff (plus, we have most of everything from DS). He was like this last pregnancy too. Like last time, I'm 100% sure he'll change his tune once baby is here. He's great with babies!
