no, I specifically asked for him to not do anything from the baby, just the usual stuff he does from the dog.  I dont know why.  I feel like I shouldnt celebrate yet bc Im not a “real” mom yet.  Maybe its just superstition or paranoia or something

 

***edit – im not saying you shouldnt do something if you want to.  Most people think Im dumb for my decision.  IF you want him to do something, Id drop some hints or flat out tell him 🙂

I would personally love it if my husband did something special, but I’m sure it won’t occur to him to do so. We are going to visit my mother this weekend and I’m betting she’ll have a Mother’s Day present for me…odd, since she’s the mom. He better do something next Mother’s Day though.

Mother’s Day is the day I found out I was pregnant with Moose. Since that day, I’ve never done anything on Mother’s Day. At first, it was because I wanted to be lazy on my first Mother’s Day. Then, no one saw me as a mother except my husband, so I refused to do anything for anyone else. Plus, it was really hard because I had really looked forward to a handprint or something from Moose. This year, it’s going to be hard again because, in spite of me not wanting to get my hopes up, I’m hoping again to have a handprint from my baby, but know I could end up with another urn on my mantel.

@troubled: Thanks. Good luck getting your baby out before you have to be induced.

Last year, we didn’t do anything for Mother’s Day.  My husband got to celebrate Father’s Day (Addie was about 2 weeks old), but she woke him up that morning with a diaper so big he was calling to me in panic from the bathroom.  Happy Father’s Day!  🙂

If you want a little recognition, maybe just casually mention that you’d like a card or to be taken out to brunch or something?  I reminded my husband of Mother’s Day this year by saying, “I already know what Addie’s getting you for Father’s Day.  It’s going to be so great!”  He took the hint and ordered my present the next day.

@TheFutureMcBride: I’m praying for you that you get many hand prints for future mother’s days…

We just found out that I’m expecting, and we’re having everyone over our house for Mother’s Day…so we’re telling our families on Sunday. I don’t expect my husband to think of anything, but he might surprise me!

Last year I did something special for my husband for fathers day only to miscarry a month later. I’ll be 29 weeks on mothers day, but I’m still too paranoid to celebrate yet.

I have no idea.  I do know that I want to do something for Darling Husband for Father’s Day, though.

Well our baby isn’t due until August, so not planning anything for mother’s day or father’s day. We’ll see if Darling Husband does anything though. I highly doubt it.

My husband is more than likely buying me comfortable tennis shoes. He’s so practical. 🙂

Then we’re going to go see our moms – because we have even MORE appreciation for them now.

Darling Husband asked me what I wanted since he sees me as a mother now, but I (like a lot of people) don’t want to jinx anything.

I also specifically asked not for anyone to do anything or even aknowledge it.  I don’t have a kid (or a baby) to physically “buy” me anything so I also don’t think of myself as a real mom yet.
