That's what my BD said. But in the end he was there for me. It seems scary to them until the day actually comes I think.

No, my DH wanted to be in the room with me to share that special moment. Sorry you feel this way. Maybe he'll change his mind when it gets closer, and you should really talk to him about it and tell him how you feel. Keeping it inside will only make it worse.

Why didn't you tell him the way you felt? If my DH said that to me, I would have slapped him. It takes two to make a child, therefore it takes both of them to bring he/she into the world.



DH first said he wasn't going to cut her cord, but in the end he did. He also said he wouldn't cry when she was born but he bawled like a baby! Oh, he was so in love with her when she first came out (and still is) but you could see the joy in his eyes! (Sorry that was off topic.)

I am having my Mom and my best friend. I told my Hubby since he gets sick with the sight of blood on TV that it was his choice. The Dr said no it was not and that they would have a special place beside my head he could sit and not see a thing. He is going with that choice. As long as my baby is healthy I can do it by myself for all I care.

thanks everyone. Ive done it alone I want my man to be by myside this time. Im sure at the time I do go into labor he will change his mind. he knows hw I feel an hw I want him to be there for me. hes kinda hard one to change his mind with but Im sure in time it might change. I sure hope so. Hes a great man an treats my son an I amazing. an would do anything for us. I think hes just scared about it an not sure what to do.Hes just finaly openin up to me about all this an finaly touchin my belly move an move so I know hes excited an happy. He jsut dont know what to do lol.

I also told him that with my 1st son He was Super fast an easy an a mth early so this one mind be the the same way. My mom had it easy an so have I an all the girls on her side have had it easy wtih labor. so If this ones anything like my 1st hes gonna come fast an not that much pain. an he knows I wont take any drugs for the pain. so he knows nw what my plan is before it happend.
