  • There really is no way to show them, they will never truly understand. Be thankful that you get the opportunity to experience such a miracle, that is one thing men will never be able to take away from us and do on their own! =-)

  • my fiance is totally different, he's all about the

    "WITHOUT WOMAN THERE WOULD BE NO MAN"

    "PREGNANCY IS A MIRACLE"

    "BEHIND EVERY GREAT MAN THERE IS AN EVEN GREATER WOMAN"

    sayings...he completly appreciates it...maybe just talking to him about your feelings could help

  • I guess I'm lucky, my man does appreciate me and all I have been through (and currently going through) to bring our children in to the world. . OH and BTW...they CANT understand. You can never fully understand something you will never go through, and to expect them to completely understand is unreasonable and unrealistic.

  • I think my husband does appriciate me, but he rearely ever tells me so. I know he knows how hard i work caring for our 3 boys----ages 4, 3 and 16mo. He says he could never do what i do. I care for the boys day and night. There are times when he forgets how challenging my responsibilities are, but what can you expect? Hes a man. lol. I don't think he will truely comprehend what i go through on a daily basis with the boys. Going grocery shopping with the 3 boys, or taking my 3yr. old to preschool then my 4yr. old to pre-K in 2 seperate bldgs. I don't think he appreciates that. He doesn't ever offer to help, but i never ask him either. But in the long run i think he does appriciate me as a person, just maybe not everything i do, but i don't really need him to. I hope this makes sense

  • I don't know, I think the men in my life (father, husband, brothers) know exactly how much a woman does/goes through/sacrifices. Guess I'm just lucky!
