Do the Food Shopping
How to take care of your pregnant wife can involve simple gestures such as simply going out and doing the food shopping. As mentioned above about cooking, foods can play havoc on Mums-to-be. By doing the shopping you avoid putting your pregnant wife or partner in a food situation that can make them feel sick and unwell. It also acts to give her a well deserved break.
Make sure you pick up foods that your wife/partner is craving. She might only like them for a day or two but when she is feeling uncomfortable they can really help to brighten her day. Remember, you need to ensure she is eating fairly healthy so don’t be afraid to challenge her if her diet is going down-hill. But, don’t be an arse about it and be sensitive to the discomfort she is likely to be in.
If you need anything else but your partner/wife does not feel up to going shopping, try to give her the experience by looking online together. No, it is not the same as visiting the shops but at least it is something you can do together especially if she is feeling tired and sick. You can then get it ordered to your home/work or wait, and visit the shops as soon as she feels up to it.
Do the Chores
Do not underestimate how tiring it can be for a mum-to-be to be tidying the house and doing the chores. Hopefully you already have a relationship where you share this burden equally between you. You could start by dusting and hoovering each room to make them smell nice and look great. Doing the washing up or any other activity that involves standing at a worktop will become troublesome as her belly gets bigger. So, get into practice early on and start doing more of these chores up-front because you are going to have to do more of them. Make sure your wife/partner is not doing any heavy lifting even when she early on in her pregnancy.
Tell her her how incredible she looks. She won’t look like it for long and she is constantly changing so enjoy her being pregnant whilst you can.
