I *hated* being pregnant.
hated it. the exhaustion, the aches, the diabetes, the pain, the exhaustion. I never really got morning sickness (thank goodness) but the rest of it was miserable.
and I didn't really like my infant. it wasn't until she was about 6 month old that I really started to feel more than the obligatory 'gotta keep you alive' affection.
It takes time, but you can adjust. and there is no reason in the world for your partner to automatically be relishing the sun goddess fertility goddess everything is glowing falsehoods that get put out there.
It's ok to be miserable about being pregnant.
on the other side of that, congratulations!

Oh duh, my boy is 2.5. So a house playset and swings would work (he doesn't love swings and ignores his admittedly basic current playhouse) but ninja anything is beyond him.

Kids thread! I never thought I'd be in here for awhile, but my wife and I just found out she's pregnant (very early right now).
That being said, I need some advice. I've always wanted kids and my wife was lukewarm on having them (she always she never intended to have them, but wasn't against the idea). Well we got pregnant a lot quicker than expected, and she's having a little bit of a tough time. She misses the drinking with friends from our bubble (it was purely for socializing as she didn't get drunk often), physical activities, and the fact that her parents can't really be around much for the pregnancy during Covid. She's down on herself that she's not as excited and she thinks she should be, which makes her feel worse.
I'm doing what I can to make it easier, but she's still kind of down.
Did anyone else go through this (either you yourself or your partner), and if so, how did you/they get through it?
I'm excited to post pictures of Baby Bedigunz in like 7 months!

I'm doing what I can to make her life easier -- I got her a peloton that she's wanted for awhile, I started her with an in-home massage therapist, and cook whatever she wants as well as taking on most of the chores in the house, but I can't seem to get her out of her funk.
