Re: Did your DH/SO stay with you

Yes, he did. The room was private and he had a separate bed.

Yes and he will this time too. MIL will be watching DD and DH can drive the 2 miles home if DD has a bad night.

Re: Did your DH/SO stay with you

I voted other because DH stayed with me overnight the 2nd night only with our first. DS was born at 8:30pm on a Thursday so after the whole bath, changing room, etc... DH went home to sleep and ready for work the next day and call everybody to announce the news. He stayed overnight Friday night and I was discharged Saturday morning.
With DD, he went home to be with DS and I was discharged the next afternoon so was in the hossy only one night.

Nope. I had a cs with my first, and a private room but he went home all 3 nights.

With my second I was in and out the same day. No overnight stay required. He went home and passed out on the bed while I washed the bedsheets (water had broke in them).

Re: Did your DH/SO stay with you

Heck no he didn't stay! And I'm glad he didn't! Felt like I was at a spa vacation and I didn't have to share the newbie with anyone else. GREAT for bonding with Mama and figuring out bfing, since I've found each bf differently!!!

Nope, he couldn't. We have 2 dogs and DH had to go home to let them out and since the hospital wasn't close to us, he stayed there.

Re: Did your DH/SO stay with you

Yes, he stayed the entire time. It seemed like the rest of the dads on our floor did not stay though.

For this one if all goes well and everyone is healthy I'm going to ask him to go home and take care of DS and the dogs, but don't tell him. I've been tormenting that he has to stay - he hates hospitals and the bed sucks.

Same here - my Dh stayed the first night with our first. He HATES hospitals. But my mom stayed with me the other nights and the other two births.

She is a NICU nurse so she loves the hospital. LOL And she is tiny and the little beds work fine for her.

Re: Did your DH/SO stay with you

last time, yes...this time, no, luckily I was only there one night. I sent him home b/c our toddler was being extremely needy. Poor guy was conflicted, but she needed him more than I did. He was only not with me 12 hours before I got to go home, so it was fine.
