When they were telling you about what to expect when she’s expecting, they left out a few things…
The books don’t cover everything and your friends that are already dads won’t share all their secrets, so we’ve decided to be that one good friend that you can fully trust. We have seven things that were left out of your list of things to expect when she’s expecting. Please do go ahead and share it with other expecting and new dads.
- Gaining sympathy weight
There’s a chance you might gain ‘sympathy weight’ with your pregnant partner, but you can help each other with exercise and a healthy diet after your baby is born.
- Keep your chest hair covered
A baby will grab onto anything – your chest hair is no exception. When it’s your turn to cuddle with your little one, make sure that you’re covered up or prepare for pain.
- Peekaboo is the game
Nothing can beat a game of peekaboo. When all else fails, give it a try. The little ones love it and you might just be blessed with a gummy smile.
- Get reacquainted with your mother-in-law
Your partner needs a lot of help and her mother will be her go-to person. Sharing your space may be a problem but just give it some time. You’ll soon realise just how handy it is having her around.
- There’ll be less sex
They probably told you this, but we’ll just mention it again…
- Don’t believe everything you hear
Other parents will say having a baby will take out all the fun in your life; ignore them. They’re probably about to have their third child (jokes)!
- The most beautiful sight
The sight of your child asleep in your partner’ arms will beat a sunrise over the Victoria Falls!
