Pregnancy game #4: Wake the baby!
And I will fully admit that this totally makes me an ass. But this is really fun for the non-pregnant partner. (me)
This game is played pretty much the way it sounds. Jostle, poke, prod, talk to, tickle or do whatever it takes to wake up the baby and make it move! Then you get to giggle whenever you feel the baby elbow, punch, kick or stretch against your hand. It’s pretty awesome.
This is assuming, of course, your pregnant partner will allow you to do this and hasn’t smacked you upside the head before the baby gets woken up.While waking the baby can be highly irritating to your wife, studies have shown (if it wasn’t already obvious) that interaction with the baby pre-birth can be beneficial. So I may be an ass, but I’m thinking of the baby, right?
