Pregnancy is a period of rapid development, changes and challenges. It is a period of dealing with their own fears and expectations of themselves in the role of parents, and start determining their own parenting styles.Upcoming parenting causes numerous psychological changes, as a woman, and with its partners.


The main tasks in pregnancy

The first task of every pregnant woman is to accept the new situation as their own reality. Might seem implied, but each at the beginning of pregnancy, pregnant women must realize that it is growing within the new being to be born a few months and this is not easy. As a baby grows in the stomach, this acceptance of reality is a lot easier, but, in the first months, when the pregnancy is still not as visible, accepting pregnancy as part of everyday life is a real test for a woman.
Once a pregnancy becomes a part of reality, following which a pregnant woman has to do is to connect with their own child. This is mainly for the first time it happens when the mother sees the child on the ultrasound, he hears the beat of his heart and feel his movements in my stomach. These are the moments when a pregnant woman becomes aware of his connection and relationship with the child and it ceases to be 'something' as it grows and becomes a child with whom to build relationships.
The next task is to create a realistic projection of what that child will be and what will it be as a mother. The child in this period given the specific characteristics and the mother is slowly entering into the role of which will look after it and nurture it.
Recent studies show that the mother and child is far more connected as a child in the womb than it was thought a few years ago. Mother and child in the prenatal period are not only related to physiological, more emotional.How the mother's health and how food is affecting the child, so is influenced by her mental state and emotions experienced in the course of pregnancy. It is therefore necessary to include preparing for pregnancy and advice on what are the psychological changes to expect and how best to overcome these challenges.
As the pregnancy progresses, these challenges are changed, ending with one, and starting up new processes and new issues. Some of the processes and problems are encountered in all pregnant women, but we should remember that every pregnancy is specific and different from each other. This is the process of creating a life that is always unique and unrepeatable, and, consequently, the problems that come with pregnancy and is represented specific. However, on some general and most common occurrences, we can talk.


Psychological changes in the first quarter

It is possible that changes in this period are not as obvious as those that come later, but that does not mean that the changes which then occur are equally important. It often happens that women in the early weeks burdened by the fear of losing the baby. These fears are, in most cases unwarranted, but the happiness of almost every pregnant woman.
Numerous psychological changes occurring at this very moment in which a woman realizes she is pregnant. One of the first changes is the abrupt change of emotional state. Common mood swings are now becoming more drastic. Situations that would not cause attention can then lead to tears, depression or anger. These mood swings vary from case to case and depend primarily on the personality type, stress which the person exhibits as well as emotional support that person provides during pregnancy. However, the period of the first trimester for most pregnant women is a period of turbulent emotions, anxiety and restlessness.
Talk with a friend or counselor can be helpful in this period, especially if these feelings of fear and anxiety begin to interfere with daily activities. In the first tremesečju very important holiday and to help people cope with the rapid amplification of stress experienced. If stress is higher, is recommended and practicing some relaxation techniques like yoga or meditation.


Changes in the second quarter
After severe stress and anxiety of the first quarter period comes a little better mood, but there are other problems that may surprise a pregnant woman. From fourth to sixth month of some fear of a miscarriage as well as the physical sensation of nausea and develops a sense of well being. The most striking event in this period is the first experience of running a baby in my stomach. Women in this period may benefit from greater dependence on their partner and may have phisiologic changes stronger than before. Concerns are mainly related to whether the pregnant woman to be around as long as it is needed and whether it will continue that support in this time of drastic change. It is often the case that women in this approach are concerned about your relationship with your partner thinking about whether he was still sexually attractive. That in this period often enhances sexual desire pregnant women will have a pronounced need for a partner. The problem can occur when a man refuses to have sex, fearing for the health of babies and women themselves.


Dreams during pregnancy
The increased sensitivity of pregnant women will make in many situations to feel a lot more stress than would be expected in other circumstances. Also, many fears about what will be the baby, what will it be as a parent, and to the extent to which life is irrevocably changed, make the women in this period of constant emotional, vulnerable and anxious full. Situations such as driving a car or walking down the street pregnant woman can evoke anxiety because of possible injury to the body, and therefore the baby. It often happens that a woman does not speak about the concerns that plague the pregnancy, but they usually find their way to the expression usually through dreams. They can be realistic manifestation of fears faced by pregnant women faced, but also can get the form of nightmares.

Dreams about pregnancy, baby, more usually begin the first quarter. Uncertainties about the new role in life may appear in dreams as a picture of a mother who is unable to take care of the baby. Such dreams are completely normal for this period and should not be construed as any prophecies about the future.
Often pregnant women lucky dreams in which they are detained or caught in a trap and it is a direct representation of the fears and concerns for the future. Especially for women who are active outdoors, and often, there is concern about how they will prevent the coming baby to continue their activities and how to keep them at home.
Another common theme of dreams in pregnant women is the quest for a child who is lost. These dreams usually occur before the end of pregnancy begins when the anticipation of delivery. They reflect concern child care.Another reason for the frequency of these dreams is the fact that the 'loss' baby in a sense, time is really close, that will soon be cut the umbilical cord and the child will leave the womb.
Frequent topic in my dreams there is one in which a pregnant victim. These dreams are also a result of expressions of concern for pregnant women's health. There is also concern that because of altered body scheme fear that pregnant women will fail to timely and adequately respond to a sudden situation, and it would harm her or the baby. Another reason these dreams may be a sense of control over her own body. This is a period of tumultuous change in the body over which women have little control. Also, there remains a sense that women no longer alone in their body which may be unconsciously experienced as an attack on the same result in these dreams.
What is significant is that these thoughts or even dreams do not represent anything unusual and that they need not worry further pregnant.


How do men perceive a woman's pregnancy

Pregnant women experience many changes and emotions, but carry the burden of men. In addition it is expected of them exceptional toleratnost and understanding that will prove to his wife during this period, they are burdened, and her fears and thoughts about what parenthood will bring.
Although there is no physiological basis, the changes will be all the more striking men to pregnancy is nearing completion. In the third quarter, as fathers often feel heightened creativity and desire to create. They may want to turn the apartment, make a cradle, or otherwise involve themselves in the process of preparing for the arrival of the baby. The expectation of fatherhood back into the present all the memories and feelings from their own boyhood and the relationship with his own father. In some ways, the fact that it will soon become a father, a man is finally abandoning the idea of ​​himself as someone's son. It seems that this kind of thinking and feeling stronger in pregnant than when the child finally came into the world.

Men can, especially at the beginning of pregnancy, have difficulty to accept the new reality because they do not have any physical changes that would be constantly reminded of the fact that the baby on the way. Therefore, the only way for them to experience the pregnancy as more involvement in the woman's inner world. It often happens that changes the consciousness of a child coming in men occur only to the first movements of the baby in the stomach, where they can personally feel that something in my stomach really live and grow. Joint visits to the doctor and go to counseling together are therefore recommended not only to men was adequate support for a woman who goes through pregnancy, and I would man able to fully experience the pregnancy as something that is realistic. Men are more difficult to recognize their concerns and fears, and even compassionate ambivalent that arise regarding the partner's pregnancy. However, even though they do not talk about them, men are feeling this way very often. That's why they are trying to non secure and fears do not emerge and keep to themselves, men often have psychosomatic problems during pregnancy partner. Studies have shown that even more than every tenth man has physical problems that result from mental health problems during pregnancy partner. These problems usually occur around the second trimester of pregnancy. Increased feelings of anxiety and depression are also common in men over this period.


Postpartum Depression

Adequate preparation to go through pregnancy is necessary to stress in this period was reduced to a minimum. As in pregnancy, and in the first months after birth, the child is most needed healthy and stable mother that will adequately respond to their needs. What often happens in cases of inadequate access to the stresses of pregnancy carries the answer is that depression and later allowed to retain and develop into postpartum depression. Research has shown that 13% of women experience postnatal depression in the period of one year after childbirth. However, this number may be higher because this type of depression is often not recognized, because of non see symptoms because of shame, which can cause a woman who recently became a mother. After childbirth, the woman is expected to rejoice at the arrival of the child's world and it can be frightened by the middle of the conviction if the public show their negative feelings. Therefore, many women hide their dismay at this time and acting positive feelings. One of the reasons why women are not recommended during pregnancy to make some major life upheavals was the fact that these life-overs increase the probability of occurrence of this type of depression. Psychologists recommend disposal move, change jobs, and similar changes for later periods to women during pregnancy, more focused on their internal state and find the best possible ways to deal with the many challenges that this period carries.
