The stressful daily life, the responsibilities of kids and passage of time often comes in the way of the relationship between two married people. You may feel bored with your husband and may not love him as much as you loved him before. You guys can become further estranged during your pregnancy or postpartum. So, how to fall in love with your husband again?
Explained below are a few ways by which you could rekindle the spark in your relationship at this stage:
1. Don’t Panic
It often happens during pregnancy that the woman feels insecure about her husband or fears that her husband would leave her. This is nothing unusual and there is no reason to worry here. Better do not ask your husband to wear the helmet repeatedly and do not bother calling him over and over again for the simplest issues. This might make him feel irritated and will in turn and will come in the way of your love.
2. Squeeze out Time of Your Daily Schedule
Both of you might be busy with your daily schedule but you must make time for each other. Spending time together can do the miracle in your life. Let it begin with chatting over a cup of coffee and continue to watching TV together. Arrange for candle light dinners at home and have a bubble bath in the tub, together. All these can bring you closer to each other and help in re-building your estranged relationship.
3. Help Him Connect to the Baby
It is your responsibility to help your connect to your husband to the baby. This will help you to connect with each other in a better way. Let him talk to the baby and have a good time feeling its kicks.
4. Let There be Some Mystery
Being frank is cool but you should also try to maintain some mystery since it is one of the best ways to rekindle the love.
5. Talk More about Yourselves
Whenever you get free time to talk, talk regarding your relationship and about all that is missing. Do not talk about your child’s school or the increasing expenses. This will help you to identify the problems that you are facing and will help you to sort them out.
6. Be in Awe
Both of you must be in awe about the life that you are creating. This is something very obvious and you should enjoy every bit of this feeling. Be intimate with each other and think about the one to come. This will give you a reason to love each other even more and will compensate for all that is missing in your relationship.
7. A Lot of Kiss and Hug
Let your partner kiss and hug you. We know it is not possible for you to have sex at this stage but try to be physically intimate with each other, as much as you can.
8. A Movie in the Bed
It may not be possible for you to go out on a date and this may reduce your love for your husband. So, a great idea to implement would be to watch a movie in bed along with your husband. A bowl of pop corn will add more to the fun.
9. Love Yourself First
It might sound strange but for loving someone you should love yourself first. This will make you feel confident about yourself and do away with all the inferiority complex. So, in the post partum stage, you must try to lose weight and involve yourself in regular exercises to get back the right figure.
10. Change the Sex Routine
Do not wait for night to begin with your sexual activities. You might feel tired and may not be able to “do it” finally. This applies to the post partum stage or a later stage of your life when you are making future plans (after all, there’s no question of having sex during pregnancy).
