I just want to first say, kudos to all of those supportive dads/hubbies out there! You don't know what a great support you are to your wives and babies.
My husband has been wonderful. He stayed so strong during our entire pg (esp that rough 3rd tri when we were monitored so closely), through the rough induction and delivery and difficulties bf'ing and ppd... so great... I fear I neglected him during that time though. We talk about it. I used to complain that I had no pictures of dd's first day (I was out of it and don't remember much of the day)and would stress about me and my guilt and all of the issues that only I saw. In the meanwhile dh's OCD has flared up, he is seeking out therapy... and he's finally admitted some of the fear and feelings he has experienced during our pree experience. We are able to talk about it now, almost a year later. Me with a clearer head and able to focus on his feelings too. And I have to say, I wish I could have been there more for him.
But you dads/ husbands... you really are something else! God bless you all. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate my husband now.
