  • My husband turned pale but the drs and nurses will make him sit down. The only reason he turned pale was when they were putting in my iv and when I got my epi. Trust me when it is time to push both of you will forget about everything but seeing your beautiful baby. I am not sure what it is like with a c-section.

  • Most guys who think seeing labor will be a problem for them end up doing just fine, so I wouldn't worry. And you'll probably be a little too busy to pay attention to whether or not he's fainting, so forget about it! :)

  • For the record: my husband said the worst thing was when I threw up. I knew it was going to happen, and the nurse was holding a little pan for me to do it in, but apparently it was worse than all the blood and goo and poo!

  • Nope my husband watched the whole thing while holding my leg up he was so fascinated, he plans on watching the birth of this child as well. Jeremy's head was actually closer in watching the delivery than the midwife's was he still talks about what a cool thing it was to see
