My husband makes sure we go to bed at the same time and cuddles me and strokes my hair while I go to sleep. It may not sound like much, but it really helps me to know he's not resenting everything he has to do and that he is caring and sympathetic to how hard it is on me.

I just realized I have to change my response. The best thing my hubby does for me is keep a good sense of humor and make sure that we laugh every day.

I love this! How do I ask my hubby to do this without sounding demanding lol?

Ive only been on bed rest for 3 days so far but the best thing my husband has done is keep telling me to lay down. I hate not being able to do things and I really need him to sometimes order me to go rest. He is taking this very seriously which I am begining to appreciate more than I thought I would.

I've read several new researches raising fresh concern that bed rest doesn't seem to prevent premature birth. This fact makes me feel frustrated. My hubby is the only person who makes me feel calm and happy. He makes me feet massage and cooks my favourite meals. He even started reading books for me when I'm in bed. Can you only imagine, he has even bought lots of that kids' stuff by himself? Now we've got a beautiful portable playard (the first one from this list: https://www.best-pack-n-play.com/playards-boys/ looks stunning!!!), a baby crib, a stroller and lots of cute tiny clothes.

I think you won't sound demanding at all! Just do it  ;)
