There are so many things to think of when your wife is pregnant. As her body is changing she will be mainly focused on the most important things. You are the one that is more in a position to think of the smaller things. And just by doing a little research you can discover things that may have never crossed your mind or you would have simply forgotten about them. So below you will find some useful and some joyful things you can do for your wife.
Pregnancy Car Seat Belt
I am sure you both want only the best for your precious baby. Every parent does. For example my sister was pregnant and during pregnancy to none of us (her family) occurred the thought of protecting her belly while she is in a car.
Why not do the most you can do to ensure the safest pregnancy possible? Knowing about a pregnancy seat belt now I am sure we would have gotten one for her. Luckily her pregnancy went without any problems.
Here is a great pregnancy seat belt I have found and for pretty cheap price too:
Dreambaby Bump Belt, Black
- Soft, comfortable fabric cover
- Helps protect you and your unborn child by holding the seatbelt under the bump
- Helps to support unborn child's head and neck while travelling around
- Makes riding in the car more comfortable for mom
- Can easily be moved from vehicle to vehicle
Here is a great image that explains it all better than words I think:
From the first image you can see that this bump belt is a set of one removable cushion, which is attached around the car seat, and two velcro flaps on both right and left side, which will hold the seat belt in the correct position. The velcro flaps will be attached around the lower part of the standard car belt and they will basically act as its holders, not allowing the standard car seat belt to run across the belly.
It’s a simple but genius way to prevent any unexpected car situations, like sudden brakes, and make sure the baby is protected the best way possible while your wife is in a car.
It’s something I never would have considered on my own so I hope I am helping you by letting you know you have this option.
So there is one way you can pamper your pregnant wife – prepare your car for her and the baby. Most guys love taking care of their cars so it should not be too hard to introduce small things in the car like a napkin holder or similar, so that she can feel more comfortable in it.
Small Acts Of Love
She will have a lot of days when she will feel sleepy or exhausted. You can always do small things around the home to make her feel loved. As I read recently on facebook love is expressed in many small ways we don’t even notice like asking if your are cold, how was your day or to watch the stairs. Just simple, small acts like that. And it is so true!
Sadly I know of a case when the women was 6 months pregnant and she and her husband (ex now) lived on the fifth floor and I was asked to help her with the groceries on the way up. The building had no elevator so the poor girl had to drag the full bag of groceries, one on wheels, all the way to the fifth floor. What a sad example of a non caring husband!
Don’t ever allow yourself to be like that. Watch those small moments when she needs your help or maybe just your attention. She will be especially sensitive to things like that with all the hormones raging inside of her. Make her feel like the most loved wife on this planet – in small everyday acts.
I especially love the story of a married couple in the middle of a fight when the husband says to her: “Don’t stand bare foot on the floor – you will catch a cold”. That is some true love right there.
Or this one time when I was a late guest of my friend who was pregnant and she suddenly had this strong urge to eat a specific type of sandwich. And guess what her husband did? Got out in the middle of the night, it was 1 o’clock after midnight to get her the sandwich she wanted. What an act of real love that was. I will remember it forever.
I believe you got the point 🙂
Make The Most Of This Unique Time In Your Life
These are precious months while expecting the baby. Use them to the maximum. Make the memorable as much as you can.
You don’t know it yet but when the baby arrives you will both have full hands of work and finding free time will be really hard.
So dedicate this time before the baby to each other as much as you can, be together, do fun things together, go to nature sights, have dinner together, you know – basically spend time with each other. You will never be the same after the baby.
If this is your first baby remember – these are the last months you can consider yourself really free. So this is the time to pamper both actually :). Afterwards the kids will always have that first place in your life and your needs will came second (or maybe even further down).
Even if this is not your first baby – then you know the whole story. So before the new bundle of joy and work arrives use the free time you have the best way you can.
Never Forget The Massage
A pregnant woman can never get enough massage.
Come to think of it I like to believe that a grown working man or women can never have enough of a good, relaxing massage.
It is also one of the cheapest and easiest ways to pamper your wife. You just need some oil, some good music or just your ten fingers.
Give her a massage as often as you can. Remember: a massage is one of the most wished for things – said in the very own words from pregnant women.
Now if there are some days you feel too tired yourself and could use a good massage then there is an abundance of massaging devices out there – if you can afford don’t hesitate to get some. It will do you both good and they do last a long time.
Do Little Surprises
I love this one. A rose in the morning, a breakfast prepared by you, a love note on the fridge. Things like these will really make her day – and yours too.
Get her yoga classes or her favorite movie ticket or a nice book.
Things that don’t cost much but just show how much you love and appreciate her. It will melt her down believe me.
So those would be some of the best advice on how to pamper your pregnant wife. I believe that if you do even half of them you will have one happy pregnant wife!
