Pregnancy is a thing of joy,a period of continous spitting for some women and a great period of dependence by some ladies too.
Sometimes,the men feel so lost on what to do during those long months .The followings are some of the things the responsible men do when their partners are pregnant:
1. Shower her with gifts:
This is the period the responsible men drops by the next store to get gifts for their partners, not just any gift but best of those items the partner loves.
The responsible men knows that the pregnant stage is the period their attention is needed most by their women, so they do all they can to be close when they are not even close. They call every minute to ask about the welfare of the partner and the unborn child while they wait anxiously to see the baby start moving in the stomach.
3. They ask questions at all times:
At every sound of the partner, the man will ask question, how are you? what is it? hope no problem? and so on. This is not just for asking sake, but to show the woman they are also feeling what the woman is feeling even when that is not possible.
4. They turn the woman to pet:
The pregnancy period is the period women needs to be handled with care. And they should be the center of concentration due to their delicate condition and the pains attached. The responsible men rub them in the back, stomach, leg and massage them on or off request just to do little in relieving them of the pains they might be going through.
5. They take the position of a helper:
During pregnancy period, even the man that cannot boil water starts to grow confidence to cook vegetable soup just to show the woman how caring he is, and at times they end up cooking salty food. The point remains that they cook.
Any woman with a responsible man should be proud and treat him right after baby has been delivered. This is because it is not easy to tolerate a woman let alone the one with the pregnancy condition.
6. Tolerate her mood swings:
Pregnant women have mood swings. From good mood to bad mood,bad mood to good mood and even bad mood to "badder mood". This is a hormonal thing. That gift she loved so much last week may be hated so much that she will cry when you buy it again this week. It is not her that
is hating,blame it on hormone,the hater.
7.Endure the tears:
Chei. Pregnant women can cry. I remember during my first pregnancy many years ago,i was in a bus and the lady sitting beside me was carrying her baby who just got immunised. So,when she shifted the baby in order to pay her fare,the baby screamed out in pain. She told me the baby just took Measles vaccination and it was a painful shot. The baby continued crying and i joined in. The man sitting beside me asked,"Aunty ,any problem?". I just ignored him and continued crying. The lady with the baby smiled and said,Na the belle dey make am cry.
I was very young and was confused at why i cried,so when i got home, i narrated everything to my hubby and did another crying bout.
Or let me not even talk about the kind of cry that happened when i discovered oga bought green apples instead of those red soft ones i loved so much.
