and he still wanted to have sex the next day! lol

we didn't of course, but I think the whole idea of "don't let the dad in the delivery room" is such nonsense!

I agree. My hubby was very interested in both deliveries. We still have an active sex life.

My husband said it was the most amazing experience of his life.  Of course, when I was preggo with our 2nd and our midwife suggested he sit behind me and give me physical AND emotional support, he gladly agreed that that was a better spot!

ETA: he still doesn't regret the full-frontal view of our oldest's birth though!

My hubby will be there! He would have been there for our son too.

Dh and I were both grossed out by the idea of a baby coming out of my vagina, but at the birth of our first, they held up a mirror for me, and he watched the birth, and we wouldn't change that for the world.
Same with our second.
With our third, I had a water birth, and he held me from behind, and then I caught the baby.
Still can't keep his hands off me ;)

my dh saw his kids' birth and our sex life wasn't negatively affected as well.

 I can't have anymore and so wish I had had a mirror!

Awww super jealous of your water birth!  I tried with my 2nd, but my water broke in the tub and there was meconium in it, so I had to get out and deliver on my bed.  Maybe #3 will be a water birth ;)
