Aversion to your husband or wife during pregnancy is a common experience.
It makes sense that a lot of things need to get worked out with a partner during pregnancy. How safe you feel with a person really gets sorted out when you have a baby.
You transform your body, your identity, your ability to work and usually your perspective on the entire world.
Can your partner keep up with this, match it and find the language to support you?
Your ideas of how to be a “good” mother and life partner really also get aired out. All the old beliefs and expectations come to the surface and you will have the opportunity to decide if they suit the current version of yourself.
Even though you won’t think you can – go OUT, exercise, have a laugh with friends.
Sleep together, take your moments when you can get them.
Get each other food and drinks, let each other sleep in. Once in awhile let each other be alone in the house.
Allow yourself a full year to make this transition with your partner, remind yourself that you are finding your way together. It will be necessary to do this every time you have a baby.
Try to be compassionate and gentle with yourself and your companion. Your children will appreciate it and you will look back on the journey as an interesting time you weathered together.
