Thank goodness for Amy Malin!!
From helping with party planning to parenting tips, she is just ah-mazing!!
But sometimes it isn't all about the babies. Sometimes it's about the parents!! So when a perezcious father-to-be from Boston writes in, concerned about his wife's pregnancy sickness, Amy knows just the trick!!
My wife is pregnant and is having a really tough time as she has been so sick throughout her pregnancy. What can I do to help? I hate seeing her like this.
Mark, congrats on your new addition on the way. It is very sweet that you want to be supportive of your wife and find ways to make her pregnancy easier. You sound like a great husband. I can relate to what your wife is going through as I was sick my entire pregnancy and it can be really rough. I was like as my husband was super supportive and really pitched in and took great care of me the whole time. Aside from the emotional support and being her best friend and always cheering her on, there are some small things you can do that will really put a smile on her face. Foot rubs are a great way to relive the tension and when your wife's belly is expanding, she has the pressue on her back and her frame of a lot more weight then she is used to carrying around and as a result her feet probably also heart all the time. So show her feet some love with a rubdown. Cook her some of her favorite foods (that she can still tolerate when pregnant) and she will appreciate you cooking it up to show her you care. If you can afford to get away for a few days, a "BabyMoon" is a fabulous opportunity for some couples only romantic time and a great way to celebrate your new arrival before he/she makes their world debut. If your work schedule always, accompany her to her doctor's appointments. This is a huge way to support your wife. My husband was at every single doctor's appointment and made me feel so safe and confident to know that he was right there holding my hand and sharing every moment of the journey together. Good luck and enjoy your baby!
Good luck, Mark!! We think this is so super sweet of you!!
