Question of the day:

As your pregnancy draws closer to the end, how is your SO becoming more involved?

LOL!! What is more involved :smile: My SO does the least amount possible. His idea of doing more is hiring someone to do it. His laziness drives me crazy.

My SO idea of being more involved is telling me to take it easy it will always be there tomorrow for you to take care of. He will do what I ask him as long as I keep reminding him to get it taken care of. I have to ask or he won't see that it needs to be done.

To my surprise me BF gave me a back massage the other night. :) He buys the things i need or tell him i need. He gets some stuff done but sometimes i get tired of reminding him so i end up doing it myself. Im sure he'll be more involved when the baby comes cause he has the most experience.
Me(20), BF(47), EDD Dec.10.2010. Its a girl!!! Yaayyy pink team!!!

Well, my personal wish was that we would find a house and buy it and move in before the baby comes....and WE DID! :) We have 45 days until closing. YIKES! We will have DS's birthday, moving into a house, and having a baby all within the same month.

He doesn't do much with the pregnancy itself, but that's more because we only see eachother every other weekend. He tries to feel LO moving, but this baby isn't nearly as active as DS was, and I can only feel him a couple times a day.

DF has been incredibly supportive financially and emotionally through the whole pregnancy! I guess the biggest way that he's been more involved would be by helping me organize all of the stuff from the baby shower and being a little bit LESS involved with his other hobbies and such. He worked all day yesterday, went grocery shopping and made dinner and when I offered to help, he told me to take it easy because he was taking care of dinner this time :) and he's been making a bigger effort to spend time with me during the week, even if it's just watching a couple of t.v. shows or something.
Nicole (24), DF (26), 2 furbabies Oliver and Gohan, and a little girl, Amelia Jane, due 11-10-10!

My dh has helped me with my before baby list, he doesn't really seem to understand my emotional outbursts but he has stepped up to the plate and performing his "husbandly" duties now that I am trying to go into labor!

He's starting taking more responsibility with the dog and he has begun to take out the trash and recycling (when reminded) mostly. Tasks I always did before. That's it, I wish it was more, but hopefully after he sees how much work the baby will be, he will help more.
Counting the days til October!!
