Cupid’s Advice:

Being a mother for the fist time is a life-changing event. It is also a relationship-changing event; you and your partner will be starting a family together, so a lot of things will be different from here on out. Cupid gives you the heads up on what changes to expect in your relationship when expecting:

1. How you spend your time: It’s safe to say your nights of partying and drinking at the bars have come to an end–for a while at least. Now, your big weekend plans will consist of naptime and diaper changes. It’s a big adjustment in lifestyle, but a rewarding one at that. Your baby will bring so much happiness to your life; all you will want to do is spend time with your husband and new bundle of joy.

2. No time alone: Get used to car seats and baby booths, you have a new date now! You and your partner will be spending hardly any time alone from this point on; consider your baby the cutest third wheel you could have asked for. Now, spending time with the family you created for yourself is the most important aspect in life.

3. Teamwork: Between feedings, bath time, potty training and the handful of other responsibilities, you and your partner will need to work together. You will learn how to manage everything as a team, bringing you closer together.
