Is your partner worried about you having a sip of wine or eating a tad too much chocolate, or is he constantly checking that you're getting enough rest? You may find that your partner becomes very protective of you and his baby and while some women enjoy the attention, others find it irritating. If it bothers you, ask your partner why he feels the need to be so protective. If you can understand his feelings and concerns, it can help. Take the time to explain to him how you feel, and if everything is going well and you're feeling great, let him know. Explain that pregnancy is not an illness and is a natural process, and reassure him that you're being well looked after by the doctor. For further reassurance, you could get him some reading material and involve him by inviting him along to a prenatal appointment. He may have particular questions he wants to ask the doctor.
