  • He stayed the whole time for both. For the first I felt bad because I was induced and we were "supposed" to be admitted in the am, but weren't until evening and he missed work when he didn't need to. And it was just a day of waiting by the phone.

  • I was induced with my daughter so we went in the night before, had her the next day and stayed 3 nights total. My husband stayed the entire time I was in the hospital with very few exceptions. He left after I had her (the next day) for a few hours to take our son to the park and give him some one on one time... and go take a shower. Thats about it. We're having another in a week or so, and he plans on doing the same. He doesn't like to be separated from me and we're fortunate enough to have my parents nearby willing to watch our older kids.

  • He stayed with my, but if we had another I wouldn't expect him to stay.

  • Stayed the whole time, except when he went out to get something to eat, or had to run errands!
