During PG would your DH/SO.....

paint your toenails? nope..he would give me money for a pedi though Smile

rub your back? yep

do extra housework for you? yep

take care of other children? yep...he is amazing with this

massage your swollen feet? last PG with the pre-e they were so swollen and in so much pain that he did do it but I think it would have to be that I had pain...he really can not stand feet

cook for you? he would gladly go buy me food Smile Acutally when I was really sick with m/s he did make me a couple sandwiches but to actually cook probably not

buy you feminine products if needed? he did after I gave birth last time...I know that he would rather me stock up this time

help you ummm trim your bikini line for birth? I told him that he has to so we will see

let you sleep in? yep

run to the store for a craving? if it was a respectable time I am sure he would...I have not had any cravings though

During PG would your DH/SO.....

paint your toenails? Probably, but I wouldn't want him to! It would be a mess! :eek:

rub your back? Yep

do extra housework for you? He is super busy, so I wouldn't ask him to pitch in more than he does, but he is awesome about helping with housework as it is.

take care of other children? He watches the kids whenever he can! He is uber busy and regrets that he can't spend more time with the kids. So when he is available, he loves to spend time with them and give me a break!

massage your swollen feet? Yep

cook for you? Hmmm, yes, if I asked him to.

buy you feminine products if needed? Ha ha, we still laugh about when I was in labour with DD and my water broke. The hospital sent me home because they were FULL and my labour hadn't picked up yet. He had to go to the drugstore and buy me Depends because I was leaking! We always joke about when he went to buy me adult diapers!

help you ummm trim your bikini line for birth? Wow, I'm sure he'd love to, but I'd never let him!!!!

let you sleep in? Yes, when he can, but that rarely happens because he usually leaves early so I have to get up with the kids.

run to the store for a craving? Absolutely. He often texts me when he's on his way home and asks if I want anything.

During PG would your DH/SO.....

paint your toenails?Yes, but I don't do it my self so I wouldn't ask him. lol

rub your back?Yes

do extra housework for you?On the weekends when he isn't working he helps out with the chores

take care of other children?He does all the time Smile

massage your swollen feet?If they were swollen and really hurting and I asked him then I am sure he would.

cook for you?He actually makes the dinners and stuff on the weekends when he is home

buy you feminine products if needed?yes he would

help you ummm trim your bikini line for birth?Im sure he would if I wanted him to

let you sleep in? He most of the time lets me sleep in one day during the weekend.

LOL my DH does most of this stuff when I'm not pregnant....we both work so life at home is pretty darn split as it is.....

During PG would your DH/SO.....

paint your toenails? I'm sure he would but it might not be pretty lol He is however staining the deck and fence which is far more work than my nails and I won't help b/c I'm preg -- we have like 800ft of fencing to stain....

rub your back? Sure any time if I asked

do extra housework for you? Umm well DH already does the dishes all the time and picks up the family room, feeds dogs etc etc Inside housework is very much a group effort here

take care of other children? Again already divided effort here. He picks Evan up from daycare 3 days/wk when I work and I generally don't get home until 6:30/7. Saturdays I have dog rescue stuff and he has Evan all day, I travel occasionally for work and he has Evan. The only 2 days of the week Evan isn't equally with both of us are Thurs and Fri b/c I don't work and DH does

massage your swollen feet? Sure but frankly DH isn't great at giving them he'd probably encourage me to go buy a nice massage Smile

cook for you? Umm again DH does all the cooking here. I haven't made a dinner in......months? I hate cooking. I throw some PBJ together for lunch but really 95% of the cooking is done by DH whether I'm prego or not

buy you feminine products if needed? Oh he's done this many times as he does most the grocery shopping too so it's usually just part of the list. Post partum with Evan he went out and got me a bunch of stuff.

help you ummm trim your bikini line for birth? I imagine he would but I probably wouldn't care to ask LOL

let you sleep in? Umm I slept until 9 today and he was up at 6....

run to the store for a craving? Sure but he does all the shopping anyway

HA I'm a pretty impressive wife aren't I? LOL Really I can't imagine having a DH who didn't do most of that at least not considering I work outside the home too. I'd lose my mind if I worked outside the home was gone roughly 30 hours a week and had 100% of the housework!

paint your toenails? Haha probably not, I don't think i'd let him because he would end up painting my whole toes lol

rub your back? Of course, he such a sweetie

do extra housework for you? If I asked him he probably would. He is in charge of keeping outside nice and clean.

take care of other children? Yeah, he's really understanding of the stress with uni and everything at the moment and he even offers to take DS to the park so I can get things done.

massage your swollen feet? Probably, but my feet are super ticklish so I think I would end up squirming the whole time!!

cook for you? Not really unless it's Nachos, that's where his culinary skills end!

buy you feminine products if needed? Yeah, I've sent him down on occasion to grab tampons etc.

help you ummm trim your bikini line for birth? I will be going to the beautician for that!

let you sleep in? Of course, we take turns!

paint your toenails?Probably but I prefer them to be neat so I will get a pedi lol

rub your back?Yes thank god he LOVES to rub my back.I never even have to ask he does it all the time.

do extra housework for you?Well we dont live together but he always offers to help when he is here if something needs done.He switches the laundry over from washer to the dryer cause my belly is getting in the way of that.

take care of other children?Yep he sat outside in the 101 temps the other day so MY older kiddos could ride their bikes and I didnt have to be in the heat.

massage your swollen feet?Yep! again he loves to rub my feet so I never have to ask.

cook for you?He would if I ask but he works 12 hour days and to come here after work he deserves to have a meal ready.He has 2 weeks vacation coming up though and he has already planned to cook for me.

buy you feminine products if needed? This is something I never send a man to do.They will never get it right.My ex used to get them but he had to take the package with him to match them up lol.

help you ummm trim your bikini line for birth?He has already said he would do this.

let you sleep in?If I needed to yea but I always wake before him.My kids are early risers.

run to the store for a craving?Yep and even Taco bell at midnight.

paint your toenails? He has in the past...not when I was pg though. I just go to the salon and pay them the $7 to do a nice job.

rub your back? Yes.

do extra housework for you? Only if I was on bed rest. He's super busy, and the house is my job...

take care of other children? He spends time with Jackie, and helps out alot when he's not busy with school and work.

massage your swollen feet? NOPE. He hates feet.

cook for you? Probably. But I am so finicky this pregnancy, I probably wouldn't eat it.

buy you feminine products if needed? Yup, he did last time.

help you ummm trim your bikini line for birth? Nope.

let you sleep in? Um, maybe. He did on mother's day. But I told him that's all I wanted.

run to the store for a craving? Yes.

paint your toenails? I'm not a toenail painter so I wouldn't ask him. I bet he'd be great at it though! Ha!

rub your back? Oh yes, he does it a lot.

do extra housework for you? He's doing it all. He's packing all my stuff for a move and he has done all of the dishes and laundry since April.

take care of other children? We don't have other kids. I haven't mentioned on this board yet that my very beloved boxer dog is in his final days and my boyfriend has been coming to all of his appointments (in addition to mine), taking care of his medications, and cuddling with him in the dog bed in the evenings.

massage your swollen feet? Yes.

cook for you? Yeah, but we don't cook nearly as much as we should. He definitely has but I think we need to step it up in the new house.

buy you feminine products if needed? Yes. I actually needed to get him out of the house (others were around) when I first told him I was pregnant, so I asked if he'd come with me to go buy some "feminine products" (and I actually said it that way, which is weird) and then tossed the pee stick at him in the car!

help you ummm trim your bikini line for birth? OMG I'm a disgusting mess and even my legs are horrifyingly hairy. He definitely would but I'm a shaver and I get a little nervous about him taking care of that.

let you sleep in? Yup.

run to the store for a craving? He's so funny about cravings. Any time I mention something like, "M&Ms sound so good" he'll want to run off immediately to get them. It's fine, I don't need every single sweet thing I crave or I'll be (even more) HUGE!!
