    LOL - with sympathy ;)

    Maybe you should warn him that pregnant women have been known to do craaAAAaaazy things due to hormones ;) ...to wind his neck in and speak when spoken to, or it could ALL be his fault ;D

    Bless him, for his love of you both, and you for not poking him in the eye ;)

    my hubby was like this for the first week or so. I just said to him that i'll share everything with him, but I'm not ill - I'm pregnant. It's not that I feel ill or sick, or need to be waited on. I just need things to carry on as normal. This is the last chance we'll have to be normal. In 9 months things will change forever, but lets just carry on being us.

    He's been fine since and has just waited for me to ask him for anything in particular.

    Hope he settles down soon, x

    Do you have any other female friends he could talk to? My DH had a long chat with a woman at work, who was fab at reassuring him about hormones and about morning sickness and how normal it all is. My guess would be, too, that your DH will relax once you get further into pregnancy. Do you think he'll even be so enthusiastic, though, about leaping out of bed in the middle of the night for LO? Fingers crossed all round, surely...

    Hey there hun, my DH is a bit like that. He constantly asks me do you want this, or this, or this, or those............? until I crack. I tried just saying "no" to everything and then he thought I'd fallen out with him as he couldn't understand that "I dont need or want anything right now thank you". It was getting quite tense for a while but things are better now that he has realised that if I need something I will ask and then it makes him happy to run and fetch which is quite nice!! LOL!! It is their way of getting involved as at this point they feel a little left out as they aren't experiencing all the symptoms that we are.

    I think that it will be better when baby is kicking like mad and they get to feel it move.

    In the meantime yay to you for not losing the rag and just think how sweet he is being to you at the moment

    Fancy a husband swop for a few days???? I wish mine was more attentive! He's just not one for rallying round a pregnant woman, in my last pregnancy, i was still going to the supermarket and doing the weekly shop when i was a week overdue! Plus doing all the housework, cooking etc.

    Your hubby is obviously very excited and just wants to be a part of the pregnancy, it must be difficult for them, as they don't "feel" the way we do when we're pregnant.

    Hope he's as attentive and helpful when your lo arrives!

    Haha, I wish that my OH would be like this! The most I get him to run and do is fix me something to eat; which I guess is a good thing. He annoys me with other things; like not letting my drink sprite or anything refreshing. (water is not my best friend AT ALL) But, I have to basically break his leg for him to rub my back!! LOL.

    So I spoke to him last night and he understands I adore him and explained I am not ill just preg! He laughed and just said he was worried as he wasnt sure what was going on with my body! I laughed and said I wasn't ill I just looked it at the mo!! He said he will be happier after the scan as he will know for sure there is a healthy little person there! HWe had a scare at 6 weeks and he missed the scan when i saw bubs heart beat so i think he feels he missed out. As for when its born the sort of man he is I know he will have no probs getting up with little un and has already asked if he can be part of feeding it eg if he can do 1 bottle feed when he gets home! Thank you ladies I shall count myself lucky and see if he relaxes a bit!! Oh and me :)
