Does your DH milk it when he is sick?

I get that my DH is sick, and I sympathize, but I have been sick for most of pregnancy too. He just seems to go a little overboard when he is sick, he acts like he can't even talk because he is in too much pain, I could still talk while I was in labor!! I know he has a bit of a fever and seems to be coming down with something but sometimes I feel like he is acting like he is dying! I feel like I am taking care of 2 babies right now! Anyone else's DH act like this?

  • Worse than my kids do but he never lets me rest when I am sick. I am still up and running even with a high fever and feeling like crap warmed over.

  • YES! He woke up sick this morning & i had to fake my sympathy because I knew I'd have another child on my hands to take care of for the next few days. He is so pathetic when he is sick.

    I'm totally PMSing too...bad time for DH to get sick. Not feeling as compassionate as I will be nice though, he really is sweet to me when i am sick. So, i guess I'll buck up & play nurse...

  • yes but whats worse for me is every time i say my head hurts or i dont feel good or whatever he always tries to out do me. he always feels worse than me even though he doesnt say ANYTHING about it until i say something.

  • My DH takes good care of me when I am the only one that is sick, and he doesn't get sick too often, but when he does, usually once or every 3-4 months it is like his world has to completely stop! He woke me up from a nap yesterday, I gave him a 3 hour nap, and I am not feeling well either so when I put my DD down for her afternoon nap I went to take one too. She woke up with a full diaper after less than hour of me sleeping, and he woke me up bc he said he couldn't bend over to change her on the floor! I was just thinking, Well that is what the damn changing table is for genius!
