When mum was in labour with me she ended up kicking dad out because he was complaining about how hard the stool was that they gave him to sit on.
My husband was such a dag. He told me while I was in transition I sounded like Elma Fudd. I just pointed to him and without moving or opening my eyes said don't. His reply was "I'm only trying to make you laugh" hunnie now isn't the time... When I'm about to push your 10lb6oz baby out!!!
With our first DD he complained his hand was sore from rubbing my back, so sorry your hand is sore DH but I have a watermelon coming out of my vajayjay.
DD2, I was getting an epi and DH says to the anesthesist your not sticking that great big needle in her back, are you? Hmm, way to help distract me DH!
Halfway though a posterior labour, XH said "see, now you know how I felt when I had my ACL repair".
Baby number 1: he was fantastic. Baby number 2 he lost his mojo.
Baby number 2: My dp told me that it wasn't that bad and to just get on with it. He also told me that I was lying when I said I needed to push. I finally managed to persuade him to take me to the hospital, and on arrival I was 10cm and the head was indeed visible. I still haven't forgiven him honestly. Still too fresh, 5 weeks ago.

Around 4am I started having contractions with our first, I went to tell DH who had fallen asleep on the lounge watching tv. I woke him saying that my contractions were about 7mins apart. Drowsily he woke, said "Right, better get some sleep then" and got up and went to bed.
Don't answer the phone to the company fixing the DVD player and organize whether it's to be fixed, when your picking it up etc. Just don't answer. Even better turn your phone off!!
Other than that he was a superstar!
My DH wasn't too bad but I do remember him "coaching" me through breathing and pushing! I told him to shut up because he sounded like he was a soccer coach!
