Cupid’s Advice:

Pregnancy isn’t all about the “glowing.” There are trials and tribulations to overcome during those nine months, and it’s important to support your partner along the way:

1. Listen: The most important thing you can do for your relationship and your love life is to pay attention to your partners needs while she is pregnant.  Let her tell you everything she’s feeling, experiencing, and thinking about. Sometimes, she may get very emotional and need to vent. Other times, she may just want to share with you that the baby is kicking. Help her remain relaxed and happy.

2. Encourage healthy choices: During pregnancy, it’s important to be at your healthiest. Do the heavy lifting for your partner. Take over their tasks that involve toxic ingredients like cleaning with certain products. Make her healthy meals and snacks, and exercise together. You can work on becoming healthier as a team, which will make it more fun!

3. Connect: It’s crucial during these stages to connect more than ever. Remember how much you love each other and how loyal you are to one another. Decorate the nursery and pick out baby names together. Engage in activities that you both enjoy. Spend a lot of time together because once the baby comes you will both be extremely busy.
