I am really sad. My husband hasn't been on board with it this whole pg but I really thought that he would be okay by now. Well, he isn't. We had yet another discussion about it this afternoon. It has him really down. He thinks me, baby, or both will die. I keep trying to reassure him but he just won't have it. I think this is a huge reason why I haven't gone into active labor, since I've been having contractions only in the evening 3-9 minutes apart, going through the night but still able to sleep, and sporatically throughout the day. I've been experiencing this since 2 Wednesdays ago. He has been such a downer, he won't even discuss names.
So I called my friend that I met not too long ago, who is almost a doula (just needs to attend births). She's coming over tonight after the kids go to bed to meet my husband and talk about everything. I will do the same as last time, and wait til the last minute, when I can't take it anymore (transition) or when my water breaks since I had him an hour later (15 minutes after I arrived). I will also fight my hardest to leave as soon as we can. We stayed 17 hours last time, but I want to leave in just a few this time.
I am sad but a little more comfortable that my husband will actually be there for me. He even said yesterday that he would most likely call an ambulance. I didn't think he would, but this is how uncomfortable he is.
