Many times I hear moms to be say that their partners, while loving and supportive, just don’t seem as invested in the pregnancy as they are. And the truth is this is probably true. Because from the first moment you realise you are pregnant, your entire life changes. You are immediately aware of everything you eat, everything you put on your body, everything you put in your body, everything you do and feel. Whereas for the dads the whole baby is still largely an abstract concept that only becomes a reality when he sees that scan. His daily life continues with perhaps a lot more worry about providing a stable future. But physically nothing changes for him. But with every bout of nausea, every smell that makes us want to gag, every bump that makes us worried or undercooked piece of meat that has us Googling frantically, we are invested from day one.
