Husband praise! — The Bump

Husband praise!

No husband bashing here please.

Something I have been wanting to do for weeks now, WEEKS, is weed the flowerbed. It's either been too hot, rainy, or I've had zero energy. Sure I can vacuum and wipe the counters, but weeding...oy!

I return from my boot camp workout and my DH weeded the whole thing! AND he's cooking dinner! Omg I'm in love!

We agreed no sex til the second tri, but I think he's gonna get a little something else tonight ;D

Lets hear it for awesome husbands!

Re: Husband praise!

  • What a sweetheart!  I feel so lucky to have an awesome husband right now too, I don't know how I would handle all of this without his support and sweet gestures.  He is not a cook, and he let me stay in bed the other morning while he went downstairs and I walked him through making pancakes on facetime.  They weren't very good :), but it was the sweetest thing.  So happy for you and your husband - enjoy this time!!!

  • What an awesome DH! Mine cooked dinner tonight and is now watching the kiddos so I can get a little bit of rest. I had a cake order to complete today and have been so nauseated that I'm just done. Thankfully, he stepped in!

  • Yay for amazing husbands! Mine has really stepped up with taking care of most of the household chores while he works full time and goes to school! He hasn't asked once for anything! I have been nauseous the past few weeks and this week sick with a nasty cold. He has been amazing!

  • That's so sweet! Every husband should take notes from these guys. Mine had been pretty awesome to considering my mother, sister and younger brother are all here during finals week. He somehow managed to clean the house, do all the laundry, cook some dinner AND get a 95 on his first test. We haven't been ya know intimate in a few days bc I've been really nervous and painfully gassy but once they leave I may treat him with a little something for being so incredible for me. Although his constant worrying about me crying out in pain in my sleep kept waking me, it was comforting to know he was at my side for every twinge... Darn constipation and gas ruining my sex life and my sleep!

  • Woohoo!!! Mine has been amazing! This is our first and he wants to know every little thing he can and he has done all the cooking/cleaning since we got back from vacation. I'm sure it helps that I can't really eat right now but still haha he tries.

  • Mine told me to stop setting goals on cleaning today, lol.  He knows that I feel like crap - and it will get done when it gets done.. even if it takes me another 4-6 weeks to get to it ;)

    That is the cutest thing ever!! I starting training mine to cook a few years ago ;) but I definitely feel like this is something my hubs would do. What sweet guys we have ladies!! Mine has been soooo supportive and going the extra mile (even if he's not getting any :p lol) and I don't know how he's been able to keep it up! He works two jobs and most nights comes home and cleans what I didn't have the energy to do. Or makes sure to cook dinner before he leaves for his second job because I've been so nauseous. We are blessed gals, that's for sure!!! 8->

  • My husband has been doing all of the cooking and grocery shopping since about 5 weeks when the morning sickness set in. He did that last time too. And he's been loading and unloading the dishwasher . . . dishes are his most hated chore and ordinarily I do all of them.

    And he's taken on the laundry, including the cloth diapers. He's pretty much keeping the household running on top of working.

    Lovely idea, @HKline922!

  • My hubby has been such a life saver during this pregnancy! I have been so sick this time around and hubby comes home from long work days, makes dinner, picks up, puts our 2 year old to bed and takes care of me! I can tell he is super exhausted and I am so grateful for all he has done! I can't wait until second trimester when I can finally start doing more again and take more off of his plate!
  • Aww! Sweet DHs and dads. Mine went to the grocery store late tonight in search of ginger candies and Gatorade because I'm feeling queasy.

  • My hubby doesn't let me do the dishes which I love!! And he has even thanked me when I clean. Now mostly he really likes my boobs and how big they are getting :) maybe he'll get something soon for being such a sweetheart.
  • Yay for wonderful husbands! My husband has been awesome. I mentioned wanting chocolate milk this morning and he ran out and got some without saying anything, plus came back with candy corn which is my favorite. Then I caught him texting one of his friends about how excited he is about the baby. So sweet!

  • How did we all get so lucky??? Mine has been doing a lot of his own research about the baby and all of its developments all by himself. He's also been really supportive of my insomnia and keep insisting that if I have to be awake he might as well too, even though he's been working stupid hours plus farming with his dad.
