Last night my lovely husband... said something crazy. I asked him to rub my back while we were watching tv. He started rubbing it, and then said "I wish I could be pregnant so I could get my back rubbed and get everything I want all the time." I said "I'd be glad to let you be pregnant for a day to see how it feels." It hurt my feelings a little bit, but mostly I thought it was funny. My goal is not to make him do everything, just to help me sometimes. Then he always asks me when I ask him for help, "What do single women do?" I say, "Well I'm not single, and this is supposed to be something for a man and a woman to do together!"
He accepted what I said. But do we really think men could handle all of the aspects of pregnancy? The belly, the back aches, headaches, raging hormones and trying to act normal and not like a freak, tiredness, pain, the list goes on. I'm not complaining, just wondering if he really could handle it.
I also told him I'm starting to have a hard time bathing and shaving my legs, and he might have to help me. I -think- he would help me if it comes down to it, but he didn't seem too thrilled with shaving for me. I told him single women don't have to worry about shaving because no one sees their legs.
And I think for the most part women are more sensitive and caring than men. That's a big statement I know and doesn't apply to every relationship, but that's just my opinion. And (I imagine) something about carrying the child and birthing the child will make me even closer and more sensitive to the baby. Would that happen to a man?
So what do you think about men having the babies?
