First “ours” baby coming!
Hello! I am 25w1d with me and DH's first baby together. I am so beyond excited to finally get to meet the product of the relationship we have worked so so hard on. We are having a girl, and DH has a son, who is 7. He will be 8 when his sister is born.
With that being said, what are some things I can do to make this pregnancy and birth really focused on me and DH? We have included SS in everything, including him walking out of our wedding ceremony between us holding our hands, as well as being the focal point of our gender reveal. He loves being included and loves feeling like a strongly bonded family. I don't want to take that away from him, but this IS my first baby, first birth, everything. I do want to make sure it's something I look back on and say "I did that for me and DH, not DH and SS."
I want DH to have a positive birth experience. I want to be heard and respected while going through this.
How did you handle having your first "ours" baby?
