Pregnancy involves various changes in a woman—physically, physiologically, and mentally. Physically, a pregnant woman body will adjust everything needed for baby growth and delivery. Your wife’s body expands, she gains more weight, and has a big belly which she has to carry everywhere for more less nine months. Physiologically, because her belly expands, she will experience more frequent urination. It happens because the big belly put the pressure on her bladder. Besides, she has sudden hormone boost that causes nausea and vomiting. She also loses her appetite on certain foods, yet develop new appetite toward the foods or drinks she used to dislike. As for mentally, she will be a lot more sensitive or on the contrary, calmer and wiser. All these pregnancy characteristics are different from one woman to another. However, hormone changes and boost have been believed to cause many changes in expectant women during pregnancy.
What Other Changes happen during Pregnancy?
As if those changes are not enough, women also experiences strange cravings during pregnancy. These cravings can definitely be anything. Some women crave for strange foods, while some crave for even stranger thing—being far away from their husbands. A number of husbands report that their pregnant wives are mean and strange. They hate their smells, their faces, and always criticize them after pronounced pregnant.
What Causes Women to Hate their Husband while Pregnant
When pregnant, your wife experiences sudden hormonal changes. Therefore, mood swing is really not surprising in the beginning of pregnancy. It is normal when your pregnant wife gets a lot more sensitive and sentimental than before. When she seems to hate you as the father of the baby, it can be explained psychologically. Being pregnant means new responsibilities, and she needs to really show you her life is going to change because of the pregnancy that you “caused”. However, there are some things to be considered when dealing with this random madness.
- Stay calm, but do not put yourself as a victim. You do not want to be the one having depression as the deal of your wife’s pregnancy craving. When your wife asks you to be in a different room from her, you might want to leave the room immediately. Do not put your wife into worse anger and ends up torturing you verbally.
- Put in your mind that this is all hormonal. It is not easy to get pregnant as well as to understand pregnant women. Even if being really sensitive toward you might seem exaggerating and illogical, you should consider the sudden changes of hormones your wife undergo when pregnant. It is normal for your wife to be unable to control her own body and emotion in the beginning of her pregnancy. Normally, it will vanish soon after she reaches her second trimester.
- Control your wife’s level of anger. Even though you want to be a very good, understanding husband and a father-to-be, you need to control your wife’s emotion as well. When she starts to do physical things to you, you need to stop her immediately. Too much anger and emotion will cause high blood pressure which can be harmful for your wife and your baby.
- At this period, whatever you do might never be good enough for your wife. However, assisting her with house chores, paying attention to her pregnancy, not questioning her changing body can help her enough with the boiling emotion.
- Last, even though your wife is carrying your little one, it does not mean that you are the one who needs to suffer. Talk to you doctor or find another medical advice when situation gets uncontrollable.
When your wife is pregnant, there are many things that might shock you and in fact, shock her, too. Therefore, a good cooperation between the parents-to be is really helpful to get through the period. When your wife seems to hate you, do not take any careless decision that might be regretted. Try to understand that her anger is hormonal, and will go away through her early pregnancy. When she gets angry uncontrollably, you should be wise and invite her to talk to your doctor since it might be signs of pregnancy blues.
