Does your Hubby come to all your prenatal appointments or does he stay home?

Mine comes to all, with all 3 of my pregnancies I don't think he has missed one. Although, my second pregnancy was high risk and we lost her at 29 weeks, I think that is why he is so faithful. My first he came for b/c it was our first and his little boy, this time is his miracle girl..... i'm kind of sad b/c he's going to miss my 28 week appointment unless he can get off work. What about your SO's?

  • With my first pregnancy he was at every single one and I was so happy that he was there for me, especially for the awkward firsts I had...I liked having him there to hold my hand, esp when I had to get a catheter x.x I just made my appointments around his work schedule so he could come =] But this pregnancy he doesn't want to go to them. He will probably only go when we find out if it is a boy or girl. It makes me sad :( I liked him going there and appreciated it. As far as I know not many men are into that kinda thing.

  • Mine only went when there was an u/s. The other times he was working or at home with our other kids.

  • My husband works and i though it would be really silly for him to come to my check ups. He Has come to a couple Ultrasounds.But I rather him either stay at home with our daughter who is 2 or work.

  • Only like the first appt and the ultrasound, he really could not take time off work to go ya know! There were so many appointments, and we needed the $!

  • Well, it's not silly to everyone. We have a two year old too and thankfully there is a child watch in the hospital.

  • and I also never said that my Husband doesn't work... he works and goes to school full time but takes time for my appointments.

    Answer by AshJoe05 at 3:22 PM on Jan. 1, 2009

  • With my 1st pregnancy he went to most of them but with this one he can't fit them into his schedule so he's only been to about 2.

  • My husband went to all of my appointments, but almost all of my appointments were at 4:00 or later so neither one of us had to take off work to go. He would just leave work a few minutes early if he needed to. He really wanted to be at every appointment.
