Sorry, now I feel like I was harsh. It was my preggo hormones!
Mommy220...That's ok, I didn't feel as if your comment was harsh at all! I was wondering what the point of just chilling in the waiting room was too at the time. haha but I guess he still would be there for me if I needed him to come back.
Thank you everyone for your replies...it definitely helped me calm down ALOT My boyfriend ended up going back with me for both things...when I talked to the Dr. and then again for the u/s. It really surprised me but then after the appointment he said he realized he was being a little harsh. I really wish I would have gotten a picture of his face during the u/s because he had the cutest amazed expression when they showed the baby, and then when we heard the heart beat. When I get back from my one class this afternoon I'll try to post a photo of the u/s!
My story is a little different. With our first two children my husband was gone for several months at a time. Then in Jan of 2007 he deployed. Our son was born in May, his daddy did not hold him until he was almost 4 months old. So he wasnt very involved because of that. It was similar with our 2nd child. He missed both of their births. With our 3rd he went to every appointment (because he was finally able to) and was there for his birth. It was a very healing time for us.
I'm glad he came in the room, it's something my husband always tells new dads experience as much as you can because you can never get that time back.
DH was there for every appt and didnt miss anything. But DH does have a few older kids from a previous marriage and he missed their births because he was also in the navy and deployed. He will be just as involved with this one too....as like navywifes DH he doesnt want to miss anything again.
DF went to every appointment with our first. With our son, he went to the first appointment and the u/s but we both thought it was pointless for him to take off work everytime I went in. This time, he will probably just go to the u/s. We have done this enough times before, we both have the first appointment memorized by now.
