Now that your partner is pregnant, you may feel that she gets all the attention.
She's experiencing pregnancy in a very real, physical way that you can only observe and empathize with. But that doesn't make your experience insignificant.
Your involvement is very important. Your attitude, lifestyle, diet and habits can play a large part in how healthy your baby will be. You can actively begin taking care of your new family right now.
These are all very normal feelings for an expectant father. They're signs that you are doing exactly what you are supposed to be doing -- exploring the feelings of becoming a parent.
