Delivery question

My husband and I are expecting our first child in February, and at my last OB appointment my doctor asked if my MSIV husband would want to deliver our baby (with the OB at his side of course). We honestly had not considered that an option until she mentioned it. Now we're trying to decide whether or not my husband will deliver our little one. We're curious what your experiences have been. Have any of your doctor/med student husbands delivered your kids? Would you recommend it? Was it an amazing thing your hubby is super proud to have done or something you don't think you'll have him do again?

I've told my husband several times that if he wants to deliver our baby that's fine with me or if he just wants to hold my hand and cut the umbilical cord that's fine too.

Thanks for your feedback!

Sex & Residency: The Rocky Terrain that Leads to Greener Pastures

I saw the board has been quiet, so I thought I would stir it up a bit. (Hope the admins don't oppose).

I just posted about sex and marriage on my blog (Good Sex Leads to Great Marriage). This post was prompted by my pastor's recent message: Go home and get naked. Yep, he urged all of us married couples to invest in our marriages whenever possible and all of us have been thanking him since.

As I wrote my post, I flashed back to those call days when DrM could sleep through anything (wink). When he WAS home, he usually shared the bed with a nursing baby. Those days were straining on our marriage. I remember waiting for DrM to come home so I could take my first pregnancy test. As I stuck the results in front of his face, he asked me if I had a fever. Can you relate? Any advice for wives who are feeling neglected?

Saving Money in Applying for Residency

So I'd like to do a post on my personal blog about saving money while applying to residency and going on interviews (I'll make sure to post a link here too), but I was wondering if those of you who have already survived that stage of life could share some of your money-saving advice with me. I'd like to incorporate other ideas (other than my own) of how you pinched pennies and cut costs when going on interviews and applying to residency, because lets face it, its an expensive but necessary process. Would you mind commenting on this post or emailing me at champagneandbonbons@gmail.com if you have any advice you're willing to share? Thanks in advance!
