: Hmmmm....have been looking for books to let the men in on the secrets of pregnancy. Can't seem to find any! Any suggestions?
: Let me say this while I am typing. Now I by no means understand, or even pretend to know what women have to deal with during their pregnancy. However, I believe that women do not even comprehend what the male counterpart has to go through during this joyful time in a couples life. Imagine coming home every single day for nine months to a tired, moody, snappy, my man can't do anything right, person. Would you say that would wear on a persons morale a little bit. Giving everything in your power to make her comfortable, stressfree, and relaxed. Now it may seem like I am complaining. Quite the contrary!! This is a magical experience. But there is nothing telling us men what to expect, what to do, how to handle the attitude and not have one in return. I pretty much keep my mouth shut. I've been taking it on the chin for nine months without so much as a thanks. Now I know she appreciates everything I do, but it's just nice to hear every once in a while. Help!! I need info!!! Thanks for the ear. Or eyes since we are on a computer.
I know it must be hard for men. I can only imagine what they go through. It's got to be difficult. I, on the other hand, was always so happy that I was pregnant I was lucky enough to not have those mood swings. I was as happy as can be, except for like the last month - being so big as miserable - but never took it out on my husband. He would not allow it anyways.
I am sure I saw a book for men who have pregnant wives... I think it was at Wal Mart. Check online and see for yourself. There has to be some help books for men in your position :) Good luck to you!!
