i am currently 23 weeks with my second baby and hubby has NOT GONE TO ONE apt....the reason is (and i do NOT hold it against him) is because he works a very normal 9-5 job...so there is no way for him to go...with our first baby he did go to one apt. and that was the 20 week scan...so i understand why MY HUBBY doesnt go to my apt. but peanut goes with me :)

I don't know why but that stuff doesn't bother me. My husband works his butt off to support myself and this new baby who will be here in three months. He makes the ones he can but I don't get mad if he can't be there no matter what the appt is for. That's just my personality though.

Have you tried talking to him about it? And telling him how important it is to you? If not then try that. But if you have I don't know what to say other then I'm sorry!

He's probably just got a lot on his mind and didn't remember you telling him.  Just from an outsider's perspective.

If he has a job interview, I would reluctantly have to let it go. That's pretty important. 

My husband has only missed one appointment, and he was really upset when he missed that one (he got stuck in traffic and literally missed it by like two minutes). But he has very flexible work hours and his boss told him at the beginning that he could go to every appointment. If it wasn't for that, I don't think he would have been able to make it to very many of them.

Sounds like the interview is important. If you want to find out together, have the us tech write down the gender and open it together.

When it comes to men... Who are naturally busy and working hard, or most of them anyways lol, you do have to remind them more often about this kind of stuff. It was good you gave him a month warning but I would have said something every single week until your appt. Or every day haha. That's what I have to do with my hubby or he forgets. I'm so sorry he can't be there.
