Ok, I have to add one--DH sat and held my hand in the ER until 3:30 AM this morning. And he cracked jokes to help me feel better. Love him!

DH has been fabulous! He tries to keep DD from driving me bonkers when he's home and lets me get my naps in. He makes me breakfast on the days where he's home in the mornings. He's been really supportive but not too "ohhh you poor baby" which is good.

My husband has not made rude comments about me being sick nor has he said to stop complaining! I dunno why I think he would do that... he's not that type of person anyway. I just think I'd get tired of me complaining if I were him. lol

Also, he made me a really yummy smoothie the other night. It was the only thing that sounded good, and it was perfect. It hit the spot & made me feel better.

He's also done other sweet things - take care of the kids, let me take breaks, long showers, etc. - he's a great guy. :

Seriously, my dh is great and he is a great dad. But he is lacking a little (ok, a LOT!) in the pregnancy sympathy department. He was kind of sympathetic with #1 but with #2 he was pretty much telling me to suck up and deal with it. Now that we are on #3 I don't think that he could possibly be a shred less sympathetic without turning into a cold, hard rock.

He actually truly believes with all his heart (and says it often) that he has it just as tough as I do during pregnancy.

Kudos to all the doting daddies on the board!!!
That sounds a lot like my DH! I am lucky to not have the morning sickness, but I have been really TIRED and am definitely eating more than before. It is pretty much business as usual around here.

But, he DID go to the grocery store last night so I would not have to drag the 6.5 year old that likes to grab everything and the 3.75 year old who gets bored and whiny there.

I do think part of his deal is feeling kind of shell-shocked yet still too. We have been debating back and forth on whether to have a third (I wanted to, he was not really sure he did), and this one came as a surprise to both of us (we use NFP, and I ovulated sooner than I thought I would that month). So, I think he is still trying to work through a lot in his mind how adjusting to 3 kids will be for our family. I think as things progress though and given time, he will come around.

When I was 9 months pg with DD, and could not reach my feet, he gave me a pedicure and even rubbed my feet.

he cleaned the microwave up.

i was reheating something and wandered away for a moment. when i got back i could hear the sauce popping and spitting... my god what a mess inside the microwave.

i took my food out, ate it, and ran back to bed, fully intending to clean it out when i got up.

well, i got up several hours later and grabbed the 409 and opened the microwave door.... to find it already spotless inside. it was wonderful. i swear i cried i was so happy.
