7 Ways My Husband's Life Will Change When I Become Pregnant

7 Ways My Husband's Life Will Change When I Become Pregnant via Babble.comI am still waiting for my positive test, a pregnancy that sticks, and a growing baby. I am about 3 days away from testing, but I’m not feeling too encouraged about this month. This is our 5th cycle trying to conceive and I have a feeling we will be moving on to our 6th month soon.

I like to daydream about the ways my life will be different when I get pregnant. Feeling the baby move, all the appointments, the needles in my stomach and my kids being old enough to get what’s going on this time. It’s exciting! My husband is looking forward to it as well and he can’t wait for it all, the good and the bad. After all, his life will change too when I get pregnant. It won’t be the typical things that I will have to endure (like all-day sickness, clothes not fitting, etc.), but there will be some shake-ups to his daily routine.

Click through to read the 7 biggest ways my husband’s life will change when I get pregnant:


  • He Will Have to Get Comfortable With the Cold 1 of 7
    He Will Have to Get Comfortable With the Cold
    When I am pregnant I have like a super-human ability to survive the cold. In fact, I prefer it. I go without a coat in the dead of winter and sleep with the window open and a fan on. The husband will have to get used to being really, really cold.

  • He Will Be On Litter Duty 2 of 7
    He Will Be On Litter Duty
    I use this excuse until I can't any more. When I am pregnant, the husband will be exclusively, no questions asked on litter duty. He will be in charge of changing it for the entire time.

  • He’ll Have to Help Me Out 3 of 7
    He'll Have to Help Me Out
    As the pregnancy progresses, he will have to pick up the slack on some things I won't be able to do any more. That includes tying my shoes, bending to pick something up and more.

  • He Will Be On Craving Runs 4 of 7
    He Will Be On Craving Runs
    My cravings are strong and fierce. When I am pregnant the husband will be getting use to 2am wake up calls to go pick up my desire from the grocery store.

  • He Will Need to Learn to Jump 5 of 7
    He Will Need to Learn to Jump
    Jump every time I say "ooh, feel this!". It happens a lot and he will need to get used to reacting quickly (and maybe how to nurse the bruises on his legs he will surely get).

  • He Will Have to Search For the Right One 6 of 7
    He Will Have to Search For the Right One
    I have a crazy sensitive nose anyway and it's like on overdrive when I am pregnant. He will have to search for the deodorant, candle, or dinner... that doesn't make me immediately puke.

  • He Will Need to Entertain Himself 7 of 7
    He Will Need to Entertain Himself
    Being pregnant is tiring and usually I function very well on little sleep. When I am pregnant, he will have to get use to entertaining himself past 6pm after I totally pass out.
