Quoting lilmzzgreeneyez *NMOA*:" and while you were pregnant you werent together even. would you let him in the labor and delivery room ... [snip!] ... if its a boy or girl but i think him being in the L&D will be really awkward. what would or did you do in this situation?"


i don;t think he should be in the delivery room ... maybe be outside.. waiting till the baby comes out

I would let him. At least he wants to be involved with the child, and it is his just as much as it is yours.

Personally, no he would not be in the delivery room. I woul allow him in after I was cleaned up and ready for visitors.

Well I think it kind of depends. I would want more from him as far as talking and hanging out before I would let him in the L&D room but I wouldn't throw it off the table completely. If he wants to be involved let him, as long as he holds up to his agreements and promises.

I would let him, it is the birth of his child too. If you don't want him looking, have him up by your head.

If you were on bad terms then moo but if he is really trying then yes. I wood let him in he might be a big support system for you.

I would have let mine in the room if he wasn't too busy fishing at the time :roll:

Probably not the delivery room since it is so stressful, and you don't really know him so he wouldn't be any comfort. BUT I think that it's awesome he wants to come to the ultrasound! Let him be involved in the child's life... It's his baby too! And it's obvious he cares about the child already if he wants to be involved.

I really think that's a personal decision and should be up to you. My husband and I had been together only a couple of weeks when I got pregnant and we dated the entire pregnancy and are married now but I was still uncomfortable with him being in the room. He was in there, but I didn't want him actually seeing the birth. Hell, I didn't want to see the birth lol. I wanted to see my little boy and that was all. They offered me that mirror and I think I almost died haha. So if it's going to make you uncomfortable don't let him be in the room. It's a really personal thing to go through, IMO and I wouldn't feel comfortable sharing it with someone I wasn't really close to.

we were never close before i got pregnant.. and never close during it.. he was there for the gender reveal and the birth. he got to hold the baby first because it was a c section. then 3 weeks after the birth he left and has never looked back. but i have 2 pics of the day he was born that i can show my son someday and say your dads not here now but he was there for that day...




i got induced and BD almost refused to go with us because the doc said it can take 10 days for the inducing med to work. my grandmother (who was driving me) and i had to tell him that if he didnt go and i did have the baby then he would be getting my last name and BD would not be on the birth certificate. finally after enough guilt tripping he came with and 4 hours later we had a son

So it wasn't awkward having unprotected sex with him and getting pregnant.. But it's awkward he wants to be there when one d my most important moments of his life happens?
