A lot of men find their knocked-up partner to have a certain je ne sais quoi. Here are 10 reasons why:
1. He feels like a man
He shot, he scored! His woman is carrying his child, and he’s damn proud.
2. He digs your new curves
Twiggy who? Your new curves make you a siren on par with the new hottest woman from the age of free love — Joan from Mad Men, of course.
3. There are new things to try
It’s like the first time all over again…in the bedroom. Remember the nervousness that you felt, the uncertainty? Being pregnant is an excuse to try new things, the sequel.
4. He wants to touch you more
He can’t deny your doe eyes when you ask for intimate services like back rubs and foot massages.
5. No more birth control!
Neither of you have to worry about birth control for a long time. That’s just freeing, isn’t it?
6. You’re like a glow worm
Whether you feel like you’re glowing or not, he certainly thinks you are. And he’s basking in it.
7. Your pheromones are raging
Your hormones are off the charts, which means other things may be off the charts too…
8. Your skin has never looked better
You might not feel like a porcelain doll, but honey your skin hasn’t been this soft since you were a baby. (It could also be all the creams you’ve been using to prevent stretch marks.)
9. You guys are a team like never before
There’s no going back now … you two are in it for the long haul (and it will be a long, though joyous, haul). You’ve never been on a team like this.
10. He’s not worthy
Your confidence and grace while taking one for the team (quite literally) makes him feel weak in the knees.
