Dear Carolyn • I'm pregnant with our first child. My husband is being very supportive in many ways, but I've also asked him to go to my doctor's appointments. I want him there for support in case something goes wrong, and I also think he should experience everything I have to go through during this pregnancy. Tests, exams, etc.
I've told a friend I expect him to go, and she thought I was being unreasonable. She said I'm going to be a mom and that's just what I have to do.
Is it wrong of me to want my husband to experience the whole pregnancy? I think more people should do the same. He says he doesn't have a problem with it, but he could just be trying to keep me happy.
