Do You Know The Early Stages of Pregnancy?


The early stages of pregnancy may be a confusing time. A couple may be excited about the news of the pregnancy; they may also be confused or concerned, for any number of reasons. They may be far from family and friends and the support system that comes from a familiar environment. The couple may have very different viewpoints about the pregnancy. If at all possible, it is during the early stages of pregnancy that the couple should discuss these issues.

The woman will encounter several changes to her body and her emotions during her pregnancy. She may have health problems that will complicate her pregnancy. While the pregnancy would not be the same for her partner, a woman may expect her partner to assist her during the process. During the early stages of pregnancy, it is a good idea if the couple learns what they can about the pregnancy. What will happen in the first stages of the pregnancy? Will anything remain the same throughout the pregnancy? Will the woman be interested in intercourse? Both the woman and her partner should think about the things that concern them most and be honest with each other about these issues.

Once the issues are identified, they can research and see what information they can get to answer their questions. They may both want to go to the woman’s physician together several times so they can get information. The doctor can be a valuable source of information and both the woman and her partner should feel comfortable with the doctor.

The couple should make extra effort to communicate during the early stages of pregnancy. They should be happy about the pregnancy and comfortable speaking about any and all issues related to it. If one of them feels uncomfortable discussing anything, the other partner may not comprehend and this can cause problems that may magnify as the pregnancy progresses. If the couple can improve and refine their communication skills during the early stages of pregnancy, they will find that the last stages will be smoother for everyone.

The early stages of pregnancy are a good time to begin discussing child care issues. This might seem odd, but if the couple begin looking at how other children behave, they can then discuss their own feelings about how to raise children. If they disagree, it may be helpful if they can establish guidelines for managing disagreements. Though these sound like simple issues, it is not advisable for a couple to wait to speak to each other about any issue related to the pregnancy or child rearing. Time goes quickly. If the couple does not start talking during the early stages of pregnancy, they may find that they will not have a lot of time later to discuss the topics that are important to them.
