How's Your Partner Staying Involved?

How involved has your partner been with your pregnancy and prenatal care

My husband used to go to prenatal appointments when he could (and always for the ultrasound appointments) and would talk to my tummy frequently. 

How about you?  How is your partner staying involved?

My bf has been awesome since day 1. From my first official prenatal checkup, he has been coming along. He even had me pick up a book our Dr recommended, "the expectant father" and hes actually been reading it too! He makes sure I eat healthy and he is always cooking me wonderful meals since he is a chef. He makes sure I am comfortable on days where the aches and pains get to me, by getting me heating pads, extra pillows etc. I'll admit, I didn't expect for him to get as involved as he is. Especially the whole reading thing, because he literally does not read ever!
