It’s common for there to be some strains in your relationship with your partner during pregnancy.

You and your partner might feel really excited about the birth of your baby. But it’s common for you to go through some strains in your relationship because of the changes that pregnancy brings.

Here are some things that often affect pregnant couples’ relationships:

The shift in focus to include another person in your relationship might cause some tension between you.
Either you or your partner might be worried about having a child – for example, you might be worried about the timing of the pregnancy, its effect on your career or the loss of your independence.

You or your partner might worry about how you’ll manage financially once the baby is born.
One of you might want more or less sex than the other.

Your feelings about yourself and your changing shape might affect both you and your partner.

These feelings and experiences are new for both of you, so it’s normal for you to sometimes feel confused and unsure about what’s going on with your partner. If you can talk together openly about how you feel – good and bad – and what you expect, it can help you to clear up misunderstandings, strengthen your relationship, avoid disappointments and manage conflict.
