The mrs

My partner is at 7 weeks now and we are constantly arguing , it's easy really its her first child and is nervous i guess she is tired and her hormones are running wild so she is very touchy I can't seem to do anything right I understand this , but I am really getting frustrated with her constant mood swings is there anything I can do to brighten her day or should i just let it run as I'm at a loss , literally everything I'm doing isn't good enough or completely wrong it's making me feel inadequate and unwanted

Yes, there is! You sound like a fantastic partner btw. When she starts on about something, listen to her. Sympathise with her. Hear her out. This time will pass but until then you do need a way of quelling the situation . Most woman just want to be heard. It makes us feel better. Let her whine to you, let her be irrationally critical of you and things, ask her if there's a deeper problem that she may want to talk about. Ask her of she wants to talk about anything BEFORE an argument starts if you can see she's getting tense.

If you do this it will put her a bit at ease and also allow her to entertain your feelings and thoughts. Which im sure aren't really seeming that important to her these days. As far as gifts go, you could get her some burt's bees wax foot massage for preg woman or some Belly Baum by them, they have excellent "baby bee" products. And you could offer her a foot massage. The foot massage will give you two time to be together where your able to do something an listen to her talk or vent, and it will also greatly help with releasing tension for her and anxiety so she may even ask you how your doing at some point ;-) Anyways, good luck!

Yes, Patmm is right! Just listen to her and comfort her. Pregnant women really have that mood swing and they just want to feel appreciated and love.
