Let me explain this to you in the language of meme: “Ain’t nobody got time for too many stories about your mom’s pregnancies.”

17. Not let her do stuff.

Don’t get me wrong, doing stuff for your partner — like giving her your seat or carrying heavy things for her — is great and you SHOULD be doing them. But trying to forbid her from doing something she wants to do (like going to a yoga class) just because she’s pregnant? That won’t end well for you — and it won’t end at all until hours later when you finally say, “I’m sorry.”
