Do housework. Rub her feet. Tell her how amazing she is for carrying your child. Take an interest in the pregnancy- go to the appointments if you can, ask her how she's feeling- what the baby looks like at this stage etc. Make her go out with her girlfriends. (That gives you a break AND gets her out of the house, which is a good thing for her mental sanity Send her out with cash.) Other than that? Suck it up- vent to your friends and remember it'll all be worth it when it's over.I figured this might be the place to ask...
DO ya'll have any tips or tricks on how to deal with a very pregnant first time mom? LOL
Love her to death but I'm overwhelmed!
You best package that in a way that lets her think it's a gift- a good thing- and not that you're doing it to get rid of her- otherwise that kid and your wife may well not come back... Women don't tend to like to be "sent" anywhere they didn't choose to go. (Barring tropical vacations)Send her to stay at her mama's house for a while. Then go fishing.
I'm so proud of you.....that's an awesome post.When my ex wife was pregnant were some of the best times of my marriage.
She was horny all the time and demanded that I take care of that, which I was happy to do.
She would wake me up at 3AM, and again just before I left for work at 6AM. When I got home at 6PM she was ready to go again, usually twice before supper was ready. Then again when everybody had eaten and the kids were outside playing. Then one more time before bed. I'm serious, this was the way things went for at least 6 of those 9 months.
She also had a lot of problems, like premature contractions, etc and I spent a lot of time taking care of her. There was a time when I had to care for her 100%. She could not even walk to the bathroom and I would have to help her with that. I did 100% of the cook and cleaning, in addition to all the working and making a living.
When my daughter was born was probably the highlight of my life.
I held her (my daughter) every possible moment for the first six months at least. If I was there and not working, she was in my arms.
When she got pregnant with our son she wasn't so frisky, but it was still more than normal for us. By then our marriage was falling apart but I still loved her I guess.
I say enjoy this time in your life. There are only so many months in your life that she will be pregnant and it does bring a lot of problems and blessings as well. Learn to deal with her mood swings and temperament changes and you will do fine.
Yep. Just be aware- when she says she's in the mood that can change in .02 seconds when a) her bladder is kicked by the little darling b) little darling does a somersault onto her sciatic nerve or c) you go to 'freshen up' and use some (deodorant/body spray/mouthwash) that turns her stomach.Yes. Deep down she needs to feel she's still hot to you. You know what you need to do!
