  • Just agree with everything she says and does. Pretend nothing is out of the ordinary when she suddenly bursts into tears or bites the head off of a stranger.

  • Have a lot of patients as you will find that her emotions can change on a dime. Those who are pregnat feel that they are not attractive anymore. Help keep her moral up.

  • if you are excited about the baby then show it, help pick out clothes, or even pick something up when she isnt around and suprise her. this will get a great reaction.

  • Help out as much as possible around the house. Be understanding when she is complaining about not feeling well, or feeling fat. Tell her she looks beautiful. Read baby books if she asks you too.
