Is your DH being helpful right now or has nothing changed?

My SO is trying to wait on me hand and foot and asking me all the time what I need/want/etc. To the point I get grumpy with him (I know horrible). I love having the extra help around the house and the back rubs though I just hope he does it in the third tri when I actually will need it!

He keeps bugging me about eating/drinking and texting to ask if I am taking my prenatals. It's definitely more annoying than helpful LOL

Mine is always pretty helpful when he's home. He's gone most of the time with his job though.

My DH has been really awesome! I am very grateful & have told him so, but I know sometimes I'm moody. It makes me feel bad b/c he seriously deserves an award for how attentive he's been. Blame it on pregnancy hormones!

We're both pretty laid back and helpful to each other all the time, so he's not being any more or less than usual. He never goes to the kitchen or settles in to watch a movie or do something that will take a while without asking if I need something first. We usually split the kid duties, so he takes one and I take one. He has offered to watch the kids while I nap, which is unusual.

He hasn't helped at all with cleaning. But he's cooked and picked up food for me, and powerade - which i'm like addicted to right now. But other than that, there's not much he really can do..

DH isn't much of a cleaner but he does help with meals and the kids when he's home. He cleaned up my vomit and let me take a nap this afternoon before he had to leave for work. I greatly appreciated that!

Mine is usually pretty good, so there's not much different going on.

Mine took a one year leave from work for a completely different reason but its definitely worked out. He does everything. Dishes, laundry, cooking, and most of the work with the kids.

My dh is being great! Helping with food stuff , which is what I need the most. Has not said one negative thing about the house falling apart or wash falling behind. He has even been doing the grocery shopping

Yes, very helpful. He works a lot so doesn't get home until 7, but when he gets home I can pretty much check out.

my hubby is just great.. anything I need or want he would get it for me.. Couldn't ask for a better hubby.. Also my mother and father in law is also helping me out alot.. ( live with them ) so I don't have to cook or do anything when I'm home.. I get to sleep most of the day and just relax (per doc orders).

He's been great! He picks up a lot around the house (I'm a freak when it comes to cleaning and don't like to let others help). He won't let me carry anything. I laugh and tell him I'm pregnant not handicapped. H laughs. He's a great guy and just cares a lot!

Thanks Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!

He has been working non-stop lately so he doesn't do much around the house. He has been forgiven though since hiring a cleaning lady to come in and clean the house once weekly
He's here!
