How much is too much?

posted 1 decade 6 years ago
OK have heard that we blokes tend to get protective when partners are pregnant and try to do everything for them and this tends to get the hormones raging.
What should I be offering to do for Hayls now and when she gets bigger and what should I let her do to avoid a shouting at?
I am quite competent with a washing machine and also the hoover if that helps?

lee hoovers, we share washing n washing up. hes always cleaned kitchen and i do bathroom but as weve got later in pregnancy he does bath for me.

i think as long as you offer and dont moan when she says no then moan when she asks for help ull be ok. were a strange breed, our feelings change daily.

Do the heavy lifting - stuff like moving the laundry basket up and down the stairs.

Mart used to help with the hoovering and would do a bit of washing here and there. i personally found I needed the help during the first 3 -4 months the most because it was when i felt the most tired - and sick! Just him cooking the tea and bathing Charlotte helped me and didn't get on my wick too much lol!

All you can do is be there for her as she needs you. You should be taking your fair share of the housey stuff whether she's pregnant or not though so get out that hoover! lol Don't treat her with kid gloves though cause that'll just annoy her.
