Well, things are not that simple. The husband may have thought he could sneak away for a few days before the last stages of pregnancy. Then the doctor might have said be extra careful about this, this and this, and the husband would have had to play it safe. My wife was diagnosed with gestational diabetes late in the game and that changed the whole dynamics. But during such times, many families will not like to discuss this with everyone. Even if nothing is the matter, women can get emotional about husband not being around for a few days although they said before that it was cool.
