Facts about pregnancy men should know

09 August 2016, 19:00 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - So many of my friends are just having babies, and I am just here nursing my food baby not with a worry in the world.

I will be worried when I am 30 but there are pros on having a baby pretty young.

Your body bounces back faster meaning you will get back in shape if you want to with a snap of finger. Let me just wait until I am 30, it is harder and you have lost some of your skin’s power of elasticity meaning the more you gain, the more loser skin to deal with.

Second, you are not attending PTA meetings as the representative of grandparents that is actually the parent. By forty, you can sit back and relax. While if you give birth at 30 you are the guys spending pension money on fees- how bad is that when you could be vacationing on some yacht or something?

Prolactin makes most women that actually do choose to breast feed lose on the love hormones. It surpresses ovulation and makes you have no sex drive meaning hoorahhh for birth control. That is why some couples can even stay a year with no sex, the mother breast feeds.

So you are not weird, it is normal- science says so.

Secondly, no ovulation means no estrogen, no estrogen means you just don’t want to do what your husband would like. Your vagina is dry and you just don’t want to have sex because you know it will be painful and uncomfortable.

Men don’t get all these factors so at times it is better to sit him down and actually just print this out and tell him it is science and not your fault. He will think you are using it as an excuse especially if he is offering to help take care of the kid to combat your tiredness.

Just ask him if he wants you to stop breast feeding and let the baby die of polio or some disease cause by lack of immunity. You will close the case with that.

Just talk to your husbands, that is the moral of the story and if you do not feel like it, refer him to your doctor because we all know, new mothers have mood swings and let us not even get into post-partum depression. But if you also notice you might have the latter, get help. It is not that you are weak, it is just that at times it is okay to ask for help and not wait until it spirals.
