My dh sounded like a coach from the biggest loser. He then complained to anyone who will listen about how sore his arm was as I squeezed it too hard apparently. Hello? 3rd degree tear over here!

My hubby complained about sore his hand was after I squeezed it while I had my epidural put in! Try having needles stuck in ur spine!

I was induced at 10am & the drip was put on low to make the contractions come slowly & not so intense straight away. Shift change at 11am & the new midwife cranked up the drip so the contractions hit me like a tonne of bricks. Then the midwife looked at my DH, said he looked tired so brought in a bed just for him to have a nap. He promptly jumped right in & fell asleep. Meanwhile the contractions were coming so close together I couldn't even speak to tell him to get back over here & help me.

DH sat back and read a magazine for some of it then later on after a contraction he rubbed my back trying to sooth me and said "there see its not as bad as you thought it would be" he is lucky my Mum was in the room so I didn't strangle him!

My dp didn't talk at all, and looked at me with a guilty look on his face. Thy was when he was actually in the room, which was only half the time- he was outside on his phone a LOT because hospital environments don't suit him.
Meanwhile I was having a terrible VBAC experience and was due to spend the next 5 weeks recovering from it physically.. A little hit if encouragement or love from him wouldn't have gone astray!

I thought of something else my dh did. Not in labour, but immediately after.
For our first baby, we were having a surprise, and my dh didn't want to cut the cord, he wanted to be the one who checked and announced the sex. So, baby is born, very quickly, it was quite a shock, and the midwife tells dh to look and tell us the sex, so he does and looks at me all teary eyed and says "it's a boy!", midwife says, "umm, you'd better look again dad!" "Oh, it's a girl!", in his defense, her vulva was quite swollen, but I still don't know how he got it wrong?

I had gas and air and dp thought it was hilarious and kept stealing it off me to have a go. Mid contractions and 8cms mind you. I practically had to rip it off him so I could use it as my pain relief.

During my 3rd birth (freebirth so no drugs!) hubby told me it was a 'Happy pain'. Freaking Happy Pain my ****! I knew what he meant..but the reminder wasn't welcome at the time!
I got him back the next day though when he had to empty the birthpool
