Quoting Chels :3:" I guess that's the part that important to me. Maybe it doesn't matter. I'll just deal with that fact then if it comes down to it. It wont matter once she's born. "
That's what I am trying to say. As sucky as it is that he may not be here, what truly matters is that you're healthy and the baby is healthy. My labor went by very quickly which is why my husband missed it. In the moment, I really didn't care.
I was in pain and concentrating on getting through my labor. The second I popped him out was the exact second my husband walked in.
If he can't be there, don't be afraid to ask the nurse to take some photos for you or something. Maybe set up a video camera. I'm sure he's upset about the possibility of not being able to be there for you also.
