Now that your expecting do your DH's help you out with house work, cleaning, cooking, est?
If so, how far along did you have to get before he started helping?
Mine is usually not good at initiating stuff like that but I'm good at asking! He's always been a helper around the house, not just since getting pregnant. He especially likes cooking, so I try to take advantage of that when I can.
When I was in my m/s first tri and my 3 weeks of bedrest this tri, he did most everything without being asked. Works for me!
DH started helping out more around the house ever since I got m/s at 6 weeks. He cooks his own meals almost every day and makes something for me too whenever I don't feel up to cooking for myself (he's a carnivore and I'm a vegetarian so we usually make separate meals). He still brings me breakfast in bed every morning even though the m/s is pretty much gone. He's taken over cleaning the bathroom because he's obsessive my not using the chemicals (even though we use Method), and he washes the dishes about 70% of the time. Oh, and he always comes along to the grocery store and laundromat so that I don't have to carry anything heavy.
