Guide to Being Six Weeks Pregnant


What Your Partner Should Know

For starters, he should know where his car keys are -- in case of emergency trips to the closest pizza joint to satisfy your random cravings.

He should also continue to educate himself on the many upheavals that your body and soul are currently facing. From mood swings to morning sickness, you might be going through the ringer right now, and it's so much easier to handle the stress when you have a supportive partner pampering you or holding your hair back while you puke. Trust me, he's going to see much worse things come delivery day (no man can ever completely recover from witnessing an episiotomy), so don't be shy about letting him help you out in your time of need.
