View Poll Results: DH and pregnancy
He was incredible! I couldn't have asked for more!
How did your DH/SO deal with your pregnancy or pregnancies?
Mine was okay, but I got really frustrated b/c I did ALL of the baby planning on my own (except for the nursery, which he painted, and he assembled the crib and a couple of the large toys). I think he had the incorrect notion that b/c I'm a female, planning for a baby would come easily to me. He was WRONG! I didn't know the first thing about what a baby needs, so I was really overwhelmed with figuring everything out. I remember wanting to cry in Babies R Us b/c I was so confused when looking at all the different types of bottles, nipples, BFing accessories and pumps, bottle warmers and sterilizers, etc... I didn't know the different between any of them, and had no clue what I really needed.
I'm off on a tangent, LOL. Anyway, my husband was compassionate toward me once I started showing. (I think it's common for men to "ignore" a pregnancy when there isn't a visible belly yet... you agree?) Overall I would say he was pretty good (but with room for improvement).
