What if we don’t make it to the hospital on time? What if we never have fun again? What if I drop the baby?
These are a few of the totally understandable fears men can experience on the cusp of fatherhood. There can be a ton of joy, excitement or just plain blind optimism, too. But during pregnancy it’s normal for men to be a little anxious about something. And it’s important to address those concerns, just as we support and reassure pregnant women about what they are going through.
I think that women worry about many of these things too! Has your DH/SO mentioned any of the fears he has about your pregnancy? What about you? What on the list can you identify with?
