yes! My husband kept coming up to me and asking if I was okay. OK? OK? DS was posterior and I was most certainly not okay.
I said to him "of course I am not okay I am in fking labour now GO and sit in the corner and if I need you I will let you know OK??"

Thanks for everyone's input into this topic. I had a good laugh and did a lot of eye-rolling and head shaking when reading this thread.
I was also able to use heaps in my article - which I hope will give partners a bit of much-needed advice (and give mums a bit of a laugh too).
Here's the finished article: http://www.bubhub.com.au/hubbub-blog...man-in-labour/

Haha I've bookmarked it so I can show dh that his 'sore neck' comment doesn't cut it

Haha I haven't read any of the replies yet so this may have been covered but it would have been great if DH wasn't sucking on the has when *I* needed it!!! Haha
Oh and I thought of the main thing e will NEVER live down!! I was in labour and he drove me to hospital, co reactions were unbearable, our midwife specifically told us on a number of occasions, when I am in labour he should park in the 15 min bay right outside the entrance, drop me off and then he can move the car to a more suitable spot... So what does he do? He finds a parking about 200 METRES away from the entrance and I had to walk all the way through tears and a thousand contractions!!

Havent read all comments but my hubby was kind enough to thank me for going into labour on the last day of a test match, he sat on the couch while I laboured for 6 hours! I even got the 'at the end of this over' when i yelled for him to help me out of the bath!

DH is a funny guy however when we were at antenatal classes they kept saying to bring along snacks to keep up your strength. Like dried fruit, nuts etc.
So wonderful DH went out and bought lots of dried fruit to pack.
During contractions he kept offering which was sweet althought I kept declining. but when I was pushing, jokingly he said "do you want some dried apricots" I was like " no I don't want any f***ing dried apricots!"
Also with DS1 after I got an epidural he proceeded to tell me I was now boring lol
Hoping for #3 soon!

My DH also did the "Just breathe" stuff. During the transition stage-I simply told him that I couldn't remember how to breathe!
Then just after DS was born, here I wad still on the floor in the shower, resting a bit before being transferred to the bed, then DH says "the third time around you'll birth in a birth pool" I'm like, what??? Third time around? I've not even had my second degree tear stitched up yet!
it's still fresh on my mind, just 5 weeks back, wrong time absolutely for talking about a third child!

Yes. I had been labouring DS1 for about 15 hours. Couldn't eat anything. DH was given dinner. He was sitting in the corner of the birthing suite far away from me as possible but all I could hear was him very loudly crunching away on a very crunchy salad. I stared at him and basically sent daggers through the sir with his eyes! I was so tired and hungry I would have come anything to eat something!!!

Not what he did say, more what he didn't say (as he was falling asleep in his comfy recliner while I was having intense contractions in active labour - i don't care what hour of the morning it was)!
