Co-parent

Is your partner no longer as cheerful and happy as before? Does she think you smell bad? Hard to see the positive in what's to come?

We know it may be of little comfort to hear that all this “is completely normal". But … it really is. A good start might be to find and get rid of everything that might affect your partner's heightened sense of smell and to make her breakfast in bed. The feelings of nausea are typically tough at this time, but it’s the little considerate acts that can lighten the mood and alleviate your partner's feelings of nausea. These symptoms are likely to linger until week 12 when they should slowly ease up and she may begin to appreciate your unique musk again.
