My husband is horrible in the delivery room. He isn't mean, per se...he is just very, very unhelpful. I would say that having him present is about like sticking a big stuffed animal in the corner and leaving it there. He is great afterward...he always takes the baby and lets me sleep and recover while he rocks it, changes it, etc. But during the actual painful and gruesome parts, he totally shuts down. I'm giving birth soon...like, next week soon. I'm thinking about just telling DH to stay home w/ our other kids until the baby is born, then joining me in recovery. Everytime I mention this, people tell me I'm being mean and that I'll regret it. Has anyone else ever dealt with anything like this?
