Really, I gave him a bit more credit than I should have, I think
Remember my "complaint" thread earlier this week about him being a butt about running around the corner for Tylenol for me? Well, I'd explained to him WHY I wanted them in the morning (my mom had managed to find an open store on her way home from work around midnight and got some) In a nutshell, I basically said my back and lower abs were cramping up and I thought I was starting early labor (though now at this point, I think it qualifies as prodromal) Ok, all fine and dandy, he just wanted me to let him know if they sped up, got more painful or my water broke. I figured he got the hint right off the bat.

Yeah right! Ha! Hahahaha! It went in one ear, out the other, and came with the standard male auto-response that deceptively sounds like he was paying attention.
I was reading around MDC last night, and he was on the couch buried under 2 of our 3 cats, and asked for a cup of coffee (no biggie there, fair trade for him always cooking the meals) I had a contraction start up, and told him to wait a minute so I don't pull a muscle getting up (did that earlier in the day standing up too fast during a contraction, owwwwie) And he says, and you girls are going to love this one, "What's the matter? Why can't you stand? ARE YOU IN LABOR???"
I looked him dead in the eye, stopping short of rolling mine, and said, "Well, YEAH DEAR, I am! Just depends on what kind of labor you want to call it, but I've been in it since Tuesday!"

Again, I got the "let me know if..." list, and interrogated ("Did your water break??" "How far apart are the contractions?" "If anything happens in the middle of the night, you ARE going to wake me up, right??" etc)

And then, oh holy cow, the closing comment that almost had me laughing right in front of him, lmao----"If your water breaks, please don't pass out...." : I have no clue where it came from or what he was thinking when he said it, but I found it hilarious

On the bright side, he did for get all about that cup of coffee, though!

Oh, too funny! I wish there was some sort of screen on their heads that lights up when the message is actually processed so we know that they DID hear us.

Personally, I love the "Don't pass out" request. Um, how exactly can you prevent that one?!
