Radical Lifestyle Changes

Many women are concerned about how their life will change after getting pregnant and bringing a new life in this world. Read on to learn about the common concerns of women about getting pregnant and giving birth to a baby.

Most of the women are anxious about the changes that will take place in their life after getting pregnant and giving birth to a baby. But there is no need to worry as all women go through this kind of anxiety but are able to adjust with the changes that take place in their lives effectively. Let us take a look at the common concerns of women about the changes that may take place in their lives on getting pregnant and giving birth to a baby. 

Will my pregnancy affect my relationship with my partner?

You are worried that the coming of the baby is going to change your whole life. Your husband will cease to look at you as a desirable life partner and will now see you merely as the mother of his child. If marriage was a big change, involving a great deal of compromise, the birth of the baby may signal the end of your freedom. In the case of a father-to-be, he feels that the baby is not born yet and already all the attention is focussed on preparing for its arrival.

Another aspect of this change is that your pregnancy will affect your relationship positively. Your partner will start caring for you more than he used to care earlier and you will feel on the top of this world. You can expect care and pampering from his family members as well. Your pregnancy will make your relationship with your husband even stronger.

Will my life change after a baby?

It is a definite that your lives will change drastically with the birth of your child. It is important that you accept this from the moment you decide to have a child and prepare yourselves. Do not romanticize the experience in your minds. While the birth of your baby will open the door on a wonderful new phase in your lives, it comes with a lot of adjustments and compromises. But along with these adjustments and compromises and as the time passes your life will surely become soother. You will realise that being a parent is one of the most rewarding experiences. With these changes in your life you will learn a lot of things which will make you stronger. You will also rediscover your strengths and your potential of getting things done your way in tricky times.

What if my partner does not care for my pregnancy?

When a woman finds out she is pregnant, she tends to completely wrap herself up in her pregnancy, tending to forget that there were two people who started on this journey together. It is important that you make your partner feel a part of the pregnancy, instead of making him feel that his part ended at the stage of conception. Similarly, after the baby is born, work hard at making time for yourselves. You must realize that the both of you share a relationship that is separate from being merely parents of your baby. This was the basis of your marriage and needs to be nurtured.

Involve him in your pregnancy care regimen. Make sure that he accompanies you during your antenatal visit. Pregnancy will bring with it a gamut of experiences and feelings. Let your partner also make a note of it. Let your partner know when you crave for something. Encourage him to talk to your baby bump and feel your baby’s movement when you feel it. In this way you can make this journey even more pleasant and you can accept these beautiful changes with open arms.

having had 3 very different labours - the best advice on getting through the contractions is deep breaths' and focus on what you will be getting at the end of it - not on the pain.
to avoid painful labour pains take two dolomite tablets and two bone meal tablets six weeks before delivering. also drink red raspberry tea throughout your pregnancy available at health food stores.

i had taken an epidural injection for painless delivery 5 years back (2000). i couldnt feel the labour pain only the contractions so delivery was normal and easy. my child was also born healthy. i havent faced any problems after that, i have no backache which generally is a misconception attached to epidural and i am back to my original slim form and fit as a feedle. i am planning to go for a second baby and will definitely go for an epidural again.

i think if you take epidural during labor, you don't feel much of pain. it is widely used in many countries , like us , canada, is pretty safe. in india some hospitals also use that.

i have 2 kids. my advice to reduce pain and to speed up the process is by walking a lot before delivery. too much walking will loose up the cervic muscles and help speed up delivery with less pain.
sindhu.8 years ago
hai iam sindu 25yrs old, i have a boy baby, who was born at the weight of 3.75 kgs. it was a outlet delivery.
one thing i want to tell for the conceived ladies, please dont be depressed, try to co-operate with deep breathe with full hope for the birth, that's it. nothing else. dont be annoyed. everything should be bearable, even this is also like that only.
