  • Ask his opinion on everything. From the nursery to baby names, to toys, to the gift registry to the theme for the baby shower. Really make him a part of it. When we're pregnant all attention from the outside gets turned onto us (as it should lol), but it is our responsibility to make sure that our men feel just as special. Maybe go out and get him a "dad" t shirt. Take him to every doc appointment. Tell him everything your experiencing, from every little movement, tell him exactly what it feels like. Let him read a story to your belly (sounds weird I know lol), but babies can hear us, and its a great way for him to begin bonding time, and you never know, story time may become his thing even after the baby is born!

  • Hmmm...have him go to all the visits with you, let him touch your belly as much as he wants, and let him plan things like clothes, car seats, which diapers to buy, etc... Most women get so caught up with planning things we do it all ourselves and most husbands are happy to comply! But with yours, just ask his opinion on everything. Have him read up on decisions for your family and talk it out. Will you have a boy circumcised? Are you planning to breastfeed? How can he help you adjust to feeding the baby? Tell him how much of a help he is when he cooks, cleans, or rubs your swollen feet. If you REALLY wanted to share the attention and someone is giving you a baby shower... allow him to come and open the gifts with you, pick out your registry, etc... Congrats!

  • sign him up for a weekly e mail from one of those baby sites like what to expect. my dh loves it when we are in bed and my belly is on his back and he can feel the baby moving. and it's good support.

  • It was hard for me to get dh really involved with the baby. He would rub my tummy and stuff towards the end. But in the beginning it is hard for the guys. I tried to involve him in everything I could. All the doctors appts, helping with the nursery, and buying stuff. Dh LOVES turtles, so I did the nursery in a pond theme with turtles and I would buy dd stuff with little turtles on it. I would also tell him stuff like " this week the baby is 3 pounds adn can suck her thumb" or something out of my pregnancy book.
