Men are often clueless when it comes to pregnancy. They may be meaning well, but can end up making their pregnant wife throw a fit.
If your wife is pregnant and you feel like you are walking on eggshells around her, you need to arm yourself – with knowledge!
1. Okay, your wife may never tell you this but pregnancy hormones do take a toll on one’s brain. Be kind. She’ll forget where she kept her car keys – just ignore these instances. Don’t worry, things will return to normal once your baby arrives.
2. Now, don’t make it personal. Of course, she loves you! But when you feel like a whale, the last thing you need is another human in the bed. So make yourself comfortable on the couch while your wife sleeps with her favorite pillow.
3. Yes, you know that your pregnant wife needs to eat more than usual. So be ready with snacks around the house!
4. But that doesn’t mean your wife will enjoy it! So, consider your wife’s changing sexual needs. Some women get hypersexual while pregnant. Others lose interest.
5. Your wife is pregnant. She hasn’t turned into glass! Treat her well but don’t overdo it.
6. Yes, you are excited about parenthood. But she is the one undergoing the changes during pregnancy. So allow her to be the center of attraction.
7. If your wife asks for an epidural, don’t ask ‘are you sure?’ Go get the doctor instead. Yes, all you need to do is follow her lead!
8. Well, it is your wife who gets to decide who’ll be with her during childbirth. If she asks you to be around, great. If not, don’t sulk.
