Dad’s Survival Guide: You Did This To Her

Pregnant woman with husband

When the exhaustion and morning sickness set in – remember, you did this to her. I think the hardest thing to explain to my husband was how tired I was during that first trimester. I just couldn’t put it into words – I’d never experienced anything like it before. The act of getting out of bed seemed impossible. Staying up past 9PM – forget about it! It was all I could manage to get up, go to work, come home and pass out. Anything else was just too much. Add to the exhaustion the frequent trips to the bathroom to throw up whatever little food I’d managed to get down, and I was not exactly a joy to be around.
