Food makes her happy. Especially when pregnant. Remember, when a pregnant woman says she’s hungry, she’s really hungry! She has to eat NOW, not in five minutes, not in two minutes. Now. Want to be her hero? Make sure to always have a tasty snack for your wife! Wherever you are.
Share your food, but stay away from her food!
Food is a sensitive topic during pregnancy. Hint: share your food with love, don’t say ‘no’ if she wants to finish your portion and especially keep your hands off of her food! Only two pieces of chocolate left in the cupboard? Don’t do it! You don’t want her to find out, during a hunger attack, that you’ve eaten her last piece of chocolate.
She’s always right!
Remember, a pregnant woman always knows best! Especially when it comes to childbirth, pregnancy or baby related issues. Would she like to give birth at home? Agree with her. Are you arguing about something? Let it go. You just don’t want to argue with a pregnant woman. There’s no point.
Take good care of her and be nice!
Enough sleep, plenty of food and a nice massage once in a while. It does wonders. Keep an eye on her (but don’t be too conspicuous) and make sure she gets as few stressful moments as possible. A happy mummy is much more fun! So help her with the chores, the nursery and other relevant tasks. The occasional compliment can’t hurt either (but not about her belly)!
Be patient and accept.. everything!
Huge breasts you can’t touch, yep. Sex? Nope! An hour late, that’s okay. Cancel last-minute parties, that’s okay too. Crying because you’re out of peanut butter? Deal with it! Lost the remote 20 times a week? No problem. The housekeeping, that’s all yours. Cause, well, your wife’s already carrying a baby for you. Do you know how heavy that is? So bite your lip, keep laughing and don’t complain! It’s only for a few months!
Brush your teeth more often & shower before bedtime
Your pregnant girlfriend has a better smell than ever. So your scent is a lot stronger now. It’s not impossible that she even thinks you’re smelly (sometimes). Your sweat, (body) odor… Also be careful with your alcohol breath.
Show interest in the baby
If you show interest in the baby and the developments in her belly, it feels less like she is on her own. She likes to feel that you’re pregnant together. Go to the ultrasound scans together and check Google every now and then and surprise her with fun pregnancy facts. Is she itchy and doesn’t she know why? It is nice if you can tell her that this is a common pregnancy ailment!
