How do you remain connected with your spouse during the end of your pregnancy?

I’m nearing the end of my pregnancy with my first. How do you stay connected and close to your partner during the period of pregnancy and postpartum? We are still intimate when I’m not too exhausted. I reassure him that I am attracted and want him, it’s just hard right now. I know being intimate will be the last thing on our minds once the baby comes. I just want to make sure he feels wanted still! Any advice is appreciated.

Small things like making foods he loves maybe? Getting some cute small gifts every once in a while… target has an amazing new section for guys with lots of minis like deodorant, combs, shaving and beard stuff, even face masks you can get one for him and one for you!!!

Date nights! Dinners and going out and having a good time together. My husband and i went dancing every Saturday night! Small gestures like bringing home his favorite snack or movie night cuddled up watching tv.

Do the little things to show how much you love and appreciate everything he does for you

We took a trip together about two weeks before I gave birth and my mom watched the other children for me so we could have some alone time as a couple before the baby was born. And afterwards it’s a great idea to have a date night at least twice a month if possible

Dates nights have really helped my relationship with my spouse. Once your baby is old enough to stay with someone you trust for a few hours, take your hubby out and just focus on the two of you!

Date nights, dinner out, blowjobs?

My husband and I had a babymoon (like a honeymoon but before baby comes) to celebrate our relationship and have our last him and I time.

Its hard. But i say of you can get thru having a baby with someone and remain together. You guys will be able to get thru anything as long as the loyalty is there

Why does he need “reassurance”.

As someone who had high blood pressure with my first pregnancy starting at 30 weeks. And LITERALLY slept all day and night and maybe spent 2 hours with my husband at night, I never had to reassure him I loved him. We would occasionally go on a date if I felt like it, but not once did he question my love for him. He knew I was exhausted, even if I slept all day. He was always supportive and picked up a lot of slack for me.

Your husband should understand that you are exhausted now. He shouldn’t need reassurance that you love him.

I’m heading into my seventh month and belly is huge and its a high risk pregnancy so while yes we are intimate sometimes its not as much as before. To bridge the gap we started going out a bit more sinple things for ice cream to movies etc and we fall asleep cuddling most nights and well we have some hot and heavy make out sessions that usually makes us wanna do more and we try and if we succeed then yay but if not we fall asleep cuddling. Its our third kid.

Tell the pansy ass to get over himself, the majority of you women on this site are pretty insecure. Get a grip

My SO was understanding and knew sex felt different and wasnt enjoyable for me. So we found other ways.
If they can’t release them self I found their mood is effected too, even if their not trying to be moody.

Why is sex So important to yourl?
Lot’s of women writing about intimacy and sex just be close without being intense all the time.

Everybody to their husbands: you get a blowie and you get a blowie and YOU get a blowie!
Me to my husband: I love you enough to let you jack it on my tits. If you love me back you’ll wait until I’m asleep before you start, because the baby’s gonna need to eat in an hour.

There are so many other ways to show him you love him.

I love this. A woman considering the man’s needs while very heavily pregnant. Very refreshing❤

Is physical touch his main love language? To remain close its important to know and to act on your partners love language. Even Fifty years down the road this is important
