'The baby's doing well' and all that sort of thing.

    I have a giggle about it now, but I know I wasn't at the time!
    Oh my god I just read into my future! My DH would do exactly that *facepalm*

    Lol, my DF also gave the advice "Just breathe" ...he got the filthiest look as I was mid-contraction...
    He also had to sit down as he was tired & so I couldn't lean on him & sway (I had been awake for about 20hrs at this point, not overly long but waayyy longer than him + the whole labour thing ).

    My DP was really good during the labour but after DD came out and we found out that she was a girl he says "Ohh good. It's a girl. So we don't have to put it back then." Complete with big cheeky grin. (he really wanted a girl). It was the only time I swore at him through the whole thing.

    Don't let him read what I wrote then, otherwise he might get some ideas!

    My dp said that he was "going to get a magazine. Because this is going to take ages" when I was 7cm dilated with no drugs. While he was gone I got rushed to a birthing sweet because no one believed how far I was. He was busy reading a magazine having a smoke while the midwives were frantically trying to call him.

    He also told me before this that he wouldn't go get the midwife again and that I needed to "suck it up" cause the midwife had said 10 minutes ago I couldn't have any pain relief haha

    I was in full blown labour, but dh and I had gone about our day, including going out for lunch with fil then he invited fil back to our house for coffee. Fil just stayed on and on and wouldn't leave. I could not believe that dh wasn't asking fil to leave! I know he was being polite and probably having a great chat with his dad, but I was left labour ing alone in the bedroom. He finally told him to go, at my insistence, and we only just made it to the hospital in time. Dd was very nearly born on the stairs of our apartment.

    So, my advice for other dh's, is clear out any visitors and support your wife, she needs you.

    Not my DH but my midwife came in reeking of cigarette smoke. It was utterly nauseating and I told her to "@&$&)&$ quit smoking!"

    My husband watched football on the tv in the room....was annoying and I asked him to turn it off.... Except it was at the foot of the bed and when it was off I could see way too much in the reflection so back on it went!
