Besides the typical symptoms and changes in pregnancy, there are more changes than both mom and dad expect other than weird cravings. It seems weird, but the changes in pregnancy also occur for the man sometimes as well. Here are some changes you can expect during pregnancy.
You become a softy: Emotions run high during pregnancy, and part of this is the nurturing traits of a motherly instinct. Pregnancy can actually make you a mush ball, so if you’re feeling emotional don’t watch a sappy chick flick.
Ultimate overachiever: Somehow pregnancy makes you feel like you have to do a million at once, but it turns out you can dominate multi-tasking while you’re pregnant. One task leads to the other, and you can manage to organize you’re entire life.
Enjoying the baby weight: After a while, you start to realize you’re getting bigger and there’s a baby cooking in the oven. Eventually you embrace the belly, and don’t feel guilty about the extra scoop of ice cream. Seems weird, but the men usually put on sympathy baby weight and will eat the ice cream with you.
Love getting pampered: Get used to receiving the glass of water you asked for, and the pillow you need to put your feet up on. You’ll notice your husband is very attentive to your needs so don’t be surprised if he offers a foot rub while your feet are up. Take it all in.
He’s your personal assistant: Husbands become very attentive and make a transition from “I’ll get to it after the game,” to “Can I get you anything?” Enjoy this while it lasts because it won’t stay much past birth because you’ll both be exhausted.
Even though there are some annoying changes and adjustments to make while pregnant, it’s an experience that you and your partner share together, so do your best to embrace it and enjoy it while it lasts.
