    That makes a refreshing change!!!

    I know you are in here by proxy sort of because of your good lady but it must be nice for a dad to be able to see what us women are going through. Perhaps we should have a pregnant dads forum. I know my hubby would be interested to take a look. I catch Mart peering over my shoulder when I'm online at home. Either he thinks I'm looking at porn or he's just interested.

    Welcome anyway, nice to have you along for the ride!! :wave:

    my hubby uses a different forum one that has a dads section :)
    its great as he learn about things without having to ask me abou everything all the time
    hes also learnt that if a thread on the womens section says tmi its not a good idea for him to read it lol :)
    but i agree its lovely for dads and dads to be to take an interest

    My DH has no interest whatsoever :(

    I love seeing matt post, just wish he could convince my hubby to :lol:

    (My DH is convinced this site is actually a cover, and I come on here to meet men :roll: )

    He's great isn't he? He is so into this pregnancy it amazes me. He never bores of me complaining about this ache or that pain and literally would wait on me hand and foot if I wanted him too.

    I couldn't ask for better than him and I mean that from the bottom of my heart :D

    Wow.

    Thanks for making me feel so welcome! :clap:

    To be honest, I'd post more but I had the feeling that I was somehow intruding in some way. Obviously, I can have no input in topics that are explicitly about how it feels to be pregnant as, sadly, that's a joy that I'll never share.

    I do have some input into other areas, though. I may not be carrying our child but I do try very hard to be involved and be supportive which has given me some experience, I guess.

    It can be difficult for us men to be involved. The best we can hope for is to become a pregnancy cheerleader. :lol:

    Thanks again for the welcome. :)

    I did suggest a "dads / dad to be" forum but sadly one was set up but never used and thus removed. I do post infrequently on another board that has a dads / dads to be section but it's not nearly as busy as this forum.

    Put a 5 kilo weight in a backpack and make him wear it at the front. Don't allow him anymore than an hours unbroken sleep and then... er.. pull his pelvis apart a little each day.

    Bet he sympathizes more then. ;)

    At least, that's what Debbie does to me. :fib:

    Tut tut, after the nice things I said about you.

    For that, I am going to post this. He may be caring and kind, but this is what greeted me on Saturday morning whilst he was meant to be in the other room getting dressed. I'm glad my pelvis floor muscles are still good otherwise I'd have been sat in a puddle from laughing.

    If I think of a way to insert a device to kick his bladder without eye watering pain, then I'll let you know!

    I have been paralyzed with fear when someone has asked how old our youngest nephew is.

    A little while ago I took him into M&S and the lady behind the till was cooing over him and said "Oh, he's lovely, how old is he?".

    My brain doesn't do numbers. So it was off in a right old panic. I think I started to flush and managed to say after an embarrassingly long pause: "Er. 8 months I think. I dunno. Oh, I'm not his dad". Which was probably much more information than she needed.

    She gave me a weak smile, the kind reserved for elderly relatives and said "Oh, that's nice".

    I wouldn't take it personally, Gem. Us men have strange ways of thinking. I'm not making excuses, but it's a different experience this side of the fence. I know how far along we are, but I don't particularly think of it until I'm asked. It's not because I don't care, it's just that I don't have it at the front of my mind every day. I know your OH has a tough job so he probably has a fair bit going on in his head.

    :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: I was told the other night that just because the bloke knocks you up he doesn't need to suffer for it.. I was poking him in the belly because he kept telling me off for pushing the babies feet out of my ribs as I was upsetting "his" daughter :rotfl: :rotfl: He says he told that on a Dads forum... I want to know if its true cos I don't believe him... :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: I also threatened to kick him in the shins which should mimic my back ache.. unfortunately I have a bump in the way, and my legs don't reach his crown jewels no more... :rotfl:
