Hey everybody, just wondering if anyone cares to share your experience with this aspect of relationship and family. We are expecting a little one soon and my wife is the one carrying the pregnancy. I am so joyful we are growing our family, we both wanted this a lot and very happy with things which are going “according to plan.” I want to be a good support for my wife.

Honestly, she has been pretty grouchy throughout the first trimester- she feels physically really bad with symptoms of fatigue and headache. With all the changes in her body I know it’s just part of the process, I’m trying to be very attentive to her needs, to be graceful with her moods and stay on her good side. I feel like we are not connecting on a sexual level right now, I understand this is temporary and she’s got so many new hormones in her body now.

And I hate that because of COVID I haven’t been able to be at most of the doctors appointments. 😞 of course I wanted to be by her side and holding her hand at each and every one of them. At least there’s FaceTime - better than nothing.

I guess I’ve just been thinking a lot about all the changes that are in store for our family. I was wondering if anybody who was in a same sex couple where your partner was the one who carried a pregnancy would be willing to share your experience or provide some insights. I guess especially with covid I think my wife and I have both felt more alone in this journey than we would have liked to.

Oh one more thing. I found a new level of admiration for my wife in how patiently and lovingly she mothers.
