My husband works up in the Pilbra drilling and is away 2 weeks with 1 week home. I feel as though he's missing out on a lot on my pregnancy and our childs growth development. We just had our 18th Week Ultrasound and although he was over the moon about it, he still said that it felt "abstract" to him.
To be fair to him, he rings every second day, has taken numerous baby books up to the mine site with him, asks loads of questions and is always supportive and always attends Doctors appointments when he can.
I guess my question is, do men in general feel less involved with pregnancies simply because they are not physically experiencing pregnancy themselves, regardless if they work away from home or come home each night?
I'd love some feedback on this, especially from women who's husbands do work away like mine.
Take care everyone...Rhatri.
