Keeping the romance alive is an important part of any relationship. Read on to discover how to nurture your romance during pregnancy.
Rekindling the flame
In the face of so many changes, keeping the romance alive can sometimes be challenging. Here are some tips to help you out:
Talking about taking out the trash, picking up the dry cleaning, and buying baby supplies can be a mood killer. It’s important to remind your partner from time to time that you love him/her and appreciate him/her. While communication doesn’t have to be all about engaging your partner in deep conversations, you and your partner should be open with one another and discuss your fears, feelings, and any issues.
Get in the mood
Keep him on his toes. Scheduling in romance and trying to forcefully get in the mood can sometimes be a buzz kill for keeping the romance alive. Often, all it takes is a surprise gift, sultry kiss, or afternoon getaway.
Sex during pregnancy
There are many myths regarding sex during pregnancy. Don’t let these deter you. Check with your physician regarding safety during sex. In most cases, it is completely safe to enjoy sex with your partner throughout the pregnancy.
