this subject is close to my heart because i was dating a girl right before i got pg with my daughter, and when i told the her about it she dropped me like a hot potato (i don't think she was ready for a poly bi girlfriend OR a pregnant one...but that's a story for another thread!).
how awesome would it be to have a pregnant girlfriend?
i know there were many days during my pregnancy when i wished i had a gf to take care of me and be there with me in a way that i don't think most men can be with a pregnant woman. i'm sure there are some men that "get it" and know how to take care of a pregnant mama, but having a nice soft woman there to rub your back and brew up your raspberry leaf tea, and actually know what you're going through...that would be heaven.
if i met the right girl, maybe even someone i wanted to be monogamous with, and she was pregnant, i'd love taking care of her and emotionally supporting her. i think it would be so good for the relationship to have someone who really understood what you were going through, you know?
i feel the same way about my best friend who is about to start trying to get pregnant, too. i just want to go live with her in seattle and help her husband take care of her, and support them both with massages and giant vegetarian meals, and always be there with the tea and the warm rice bag. i wonder if there is such a thing as a whole-pregnancy doula. i think i'd be great at it!
