Pregnancy undoubtedly is a beautiful time for you and your wife. After all, you are bringing someone into the world who will be your legacy! But it can be a little tricky for both of you. And if you don’t pay the heed, it might be a difficult situation!Oops! Didn’t think it earlier right? But this blog post might help these pregnant husbands. I am glad my husband knows all this.
Below is a list of stuff you might have to consider now that your wife would be a lot more moody than she was earlier:
- Reduce her stress.Pregnancy is physically and emotionally demanding, so try and reduce her stress by helping her out or maybe doing something she likes. Take on more of the household chores so your wife can rest. My husband helps me with the dishes and at times cooks delicious food for me to enjoy. He also makes sure that we enjoy. He knows how I like going out, so he plans out something or the other so I get an outing that brightens up my mood.
- Be patient.Pregnancy totally can play around with your wife’s hormones. Some days she’ll feel amazing, some days she would just be ready to pull on a fight as soon as you speak, and some days she’ll break down and cry for no reason at all. Be patient. This too shall Pass! Just try and make her happy. You would be knowing what works best for your wife. Just try not to answer her back.
- Tell her she’s beautiful and that you love her. She surely is the most beautiful lady and so she is your wife. Just keep on making her feel that and you would have love coming back all your way. Oh yes, it is a double profit.Your wife is having some strange transformations to her body. Reassure her that you think she’s beautiful and that you love her immensely.
- She might not smell all rosy. Pregnancy comes with a lot of side effects. Increased body odor being one of them. She knows that she is not smelling good too, but is just too tired to put on a cologne or take a bath again. Be a little tactful when you tell her that. Or maybe just don’t say anything except how you love the lovely freshly bathed wife of yours. You simply would put across your point without hurting her. It won’t hurt you either. If you know what I mean!
- Choose your words wisely.You never know what you might speak wrong. You are right! You have to be aware of what you say and the tone in which you say it. She might be over-reacting. But that is what pregnancy has made her – very little things can piss her off.With all the changes and all the pain she goes through on daily basis, she is bound to get grumpy. Isn’t she? So just be cautious.
- Yes her clothes size has increased, be kind when you make it a point of your communication. She might have gone from a size’M’ to an ‘XL’ and even she doesn’t like it. Try and make it a funny event instead of commenting on it and making her stress even more. Every lady loves her body and so, she would also want to get back in shape. You are concerned and so is she. So, help her believe that she will be back to her normal self soon. And that you still love her.
- She eats more than usual. She’ll have the appetite of a truck driver—and for good reason: she’s having another life growing inside her. Appreciate the fact. My husband always keeps on encouraging me to to eat(all healthy stuff though).
- Remember, your wife is doing all the hard work.Appreciate her for that.Being pregnant is somewhat hard. A man can only guess what the combination of nausea, sleep-deprivation, anxiety, exhilaration and constipation really feels like. Imagine someone jumping and kicking you from within as soon as you think you would rest now. Thank her for everything she is doing and things will be great then.
She is new to pregnancy as much as you are. Just make her feel loved and you will do great. Have a happy pregnancy!
I am glad my husband knows this already and this is what drove me to write this blog. All what I had heard from the women who have been through the phase is that their husband didn’t understand them. So I thought maybe his might help all the beautiful couples to understand each other through this beautiful yet challenging phase of life.
