I am 40 weeks and 2 days now and have been getting back aches, all i want is for my partner to give me a back rub, but A) he doesn't stay awake long enough and B) his hand gets tired. Plus its nice to have a little contact with my partner without it being full sex.
My partner said i should take paracetamol, but i made a personal choice to not use pain killers during pregnancy, i dont think i am being ridiculous with my choice and i think he should support my choice and be there for me. Instead of telling me to give up on my birth plan of a pain relief free birth, i believe he should encourage me and be more supportive. Am i expecting too much?
What does everyone else think?
