She's Gone Insane! An Explanation of the Changes  Your Partner May Undergo So you just got news that your partner  is expecting and now you're asking yourself  “What do I expect?”  Although you may have  a theory as to what changes your partner will  undergo, it is important to gain a full  understanding so you can be sensitive to her  needs and save yourself a great deal of grief  in the long run.   It is in the first three months of the  pregnancy that you can expect your partner to  become very emotional and experience mood  swings.  During this time the woman's body is  still adjusting to being pregnant and your  partner will need as much emotional support  as possible.  Unfortunately, these first months  are also the period of the dreaded “morning  sickness” – so have that bucket ready! Thankfully, the next three months will  grant you some sanity as your partner's body  becomes more accustomed to being pregnant  and the moodiness will subside.  Additionally,  you can expect her to feel better physically  and have increased energy levels.  Perhaps  most exciting for you, however, it is during this  time that you will first be able to feel your little  one move. During the final three months of your  partner's pregnancy your “honey-do list” may  grow considerably due to the fact that  doing even routine tasks will cause  discomfort as the abdomen grows.  It  is important that, during this time, you  provide your partner with the support  and understanding that she needs.
