A pregnant woman needs all the support she can get. And the most highly appreciated support comes from the husband or partner. While you were pregnant, did your husband support and help you?

He was great through the first two pregnancies, used to get me things in the middle of the night and go to all the obs appointments. I think by number 3 he was a bit over it, but then again so was I (like I really didn't need him to take time off work by baby number 3 to come to every appointment with the midwife). He was good with taking care of the older ones so I could sleep, so that made up for it!
It has been a while, but I remember feeling all alone through the process.
He was as supportive as his job could permit. I was very surprised with the support he gave during my labour though. He really stepped up. I felt like the most blessed person in the world.

I can't begin to imagine how horribly useless a man must feel helping his partner in labour. Hats off to those who manage to ride their feelings of uselessness :)

Agreed. I couldn't imagine how I would be if the roles were reversed.

Not been through that yet.
Very supportive in both my pregnancies...
My husband was very supportive at the time of my pregnancy. Those 9 months were the best time of my life. Because of my husband's help I could manage both office and home.
I have not been through this process, nor will I ever. With my sister thought, her hubby could have been a little more supportive.
My husband was brilliant. I didn't need any help during pregnancy even though I worked full time up til 2 weeks prior to birth, but I wasn't unwell at all apart from first 3 months of morning sickness, which he could not help with anyway.
He wasn't present at the birth, and I preferred to concentrate on the job at hand, without having to ask after his well being or feelings. He stayed at home and when baby and I arrived home - the house was absolutely spotless. He had made 2 weeks of meals and put them in the freezer, had done all the shopping to take us up to 2 weeks. So when baby & I arrived home the 3 of us spent an uninterrupted 2 weeks of bonding and getting things in order. I thought his taking 2 weeks off work was unnecessary, but it was nevertheless very enjoyable. I thanked him for his good, practical thinking.
