Would you be upset if your hubby or SO didn't stay with you in the hospital after you have the baby?

Yes, I would bc I think that is a special time for him and I. Also it's his baby to he should be there for me and the baby.

Yes. We have other kids and I would still expect him to stay. We are having an out of hospital birth so it's a Non issue... But I would be upset if he left and went out the night after the birth and left me alone

Depends on why. If they get sick because of blood and stuff easily then no...but if they were just not wanting to becuase they wanted to go fishing or play video games then yes! My husband left to get some food during the labor part. Honestly could have cared less if he chose not to be in the room the second time...but we were having a really rough patch in our marriage at the time...but for future kids I want him in there. But if he chose not to because he was just uncomfortable I woudn't care as long as he was AT the hospital. Or I would want him to stay the night unless my mom was there after I had the baby. I feel like I need someone there overnight. So I would expect him to stay at least one night with me. Maybe when I have my third child I woudn't care at all though...

Well we have only had our second in the hospital and I let him decide what we wanted to do. My sister said she could watch our oldest if he wanted to. He decided to the first night and go home the second night.

 If he had no good reason to not stay, I would be.

Yes. He wouldn't dare and he doesn't want to leave my side anyway.

Depends. DH didn't stay with me. But we also had a son he needed to be with.

Yeah, unless there was a good reason. When my second son was born DH was going to school at night and he couldn't miss his classes but he was there every minute before and after class, he stayed the night there and everything.
