do you find that your relationship with your DH/SO/BF/DF has changed since you've become pregnant/had a baby?

Every pregnancy seems to put a strain on our relationship until the baby is a few months old. I spend most of the time sick and irritable which is stressful for all of us.

I've never seen these abbreviations before, I'm sure everyone else knows what they mean....
What is DH? I've seen that alot, in the context it's used seems like its 'husband'?

I know the BF one lol

To be honest our relationship changed the very second we found out we were pregnant. It was no longer about him or me but about us. I will say that things have been much happier in our house since we found out.

me too. i was always hopelessly in love with my DH, but since we found out about the baby things are so great. its a strain on the relationship sometimes, i can be a total cow, and i worry about every tiny thing. but he just takes it in his stride and makes everything all better for me.

Things with the BF have gotten better I would have to say. They were already good to begin with though. He is more supportive, makes sure I take my vitamins and all that. He is going to be a great father and I can't wait to share this experience with him.

My DH has also gotten more supportive/protective. He is always bringing me water, reminding me about vitamins, cooking foods with protein. We have had a bit of an issue over the heavy lifting thing though, he just doesn't understand why I don't want to help him haul 150 lb french doors.

My BF and I aren't as "snuggly" as we used to be. I never feel well and the last thing I want to do is cuddle all the time. He doesn't sleep in the same room with me anymore because 1. I don't feel well enough and 2. I get up every 30 minutes to pee which wakes him up too. But we are still just as close and loving. He's a lot more protective of me now that I'm pregnant. He doesn't let me lift anything and always cooks/cleans for me! It's so sweet.

My relationship has been constantly changing since I got preg. My bf was really supportive when I told him which took a huge weight off me, but I haven't felt up to being 'cuddly' and stuff, and we've had some... slight disagreements lately, but last night I was complaining to him over MSN (we don't live together. But we might soon. Kind of one of our disagreements) because I wasn't feeling well and couldn't sleep, and he showed up at my house at 2AM with soup, which basically made me melt.

Yes, I think our relationship ahs changed as well, but fort he better. I honestly beleive the way you love the father of your children is different then any other kind of love. My husband and I had been married for awhile before we got pregnant but once we took that test ( and it was unplanned) the love we share for eachother changed. I think if anything it become more of an unconditonal love.

Me and my SO seem to get along better but it's so frustrating sometimes when we get in our moods. Things get better the further along I get.

DF and I had a lot of problems after Joshua was born, but it got so much better once Joshua got older. We're doing really good now.

well, my boyfriend lives in another state, and now that i'm pregnant we're going to have to move. he lives in Indiana, and i live in New Jersey. the plan now is that we're both going to move down to Florida because thats where most of my family lives. besides the family thing, its also a lot cheaper to live there. even before we found out that we were having a baby, we planned on moving to be closer to each other, now we just have to jump start the plan.

Im not pregnant anymore.. but when I was he was protective and more caring.. but in end of my pregnancy he started getting scared.. he was scared to hold the babies because he thought he was going to break them.. they were 2 months early.. so when they went home they were 5lbs.. he was jealous at first but he loves them soo much.. once they start being able to do things like roll over, crawl they get to know them better
