5 Things Your Husband Should Help With When You Are Pregnant
“I can’t thank Jason, my husband, enough for helping me with so many things during my pregnancy”, said Martha, heaving a sigh of relief. “Really? That’s so sweet of him, Martha. Even I second your thought that all partners must help with errands and emotions of their pregnant better halves during pregnancy”, confirmed Lennie. Martha had just delivered a baby and she was chatting with Lennie about the things that a husband should help with when you are pregnant.
1. Helping with mood swings
“It’s pretty common that we women are plagued with random mood swings throughout the day during pregnancy, right?”, said Martha. “Well, my husband helped me with my fluctuating mental state of mind throughout the day when I was pregnant. That too without getting angry or frustrated”, praised Martha. “In fact, partners should help with covering up for our mood blunders to other people when we are pregnant, isn’t it?”, laughed Lennie.
2. Helping in maintaining cleanliness in the house
“Oh dear. The more I think about this, the more I believe that cleaning the house is a very important task that your husband should help you with when you are pregnant”, said Lennie. “That’s true. After my seventh month of pregnancy when I was totally restricted to bend down and pick heavy weight items, Jason helped me with all types of labor oriented household chores”, smiled Martha.
3. Educating about childcare
“Do you know Lennie, this is one important task that your husband should help you with when you are pregnant? Help doesn’t only mean household chores and buying groceries”, explained Martha wisely. “Partners should accompany their pregnant better halves by reading pregnancy how-to material, listening to audiotapes, attending pregnancy and childcare counseling sessions together”, she added. “You’re so right, Martha. Providing this kind of emotional help when you are pregnant can go a long way in strengthening your relationship too”, said Lennie.
