Expectant Father Survey extracts ~ Almost a dad

Expectant Father Survey extracts

So far I've gotten some great information from other dads about their experiences with pregnant women in our expectant father survey. I'd like to share a few highlights from current and expectant fathers which I found interesting. They may shed some light on pregnancy from a dad's point of view.

- 50% of respondents were completely surprised by atypical or 'crazy' behavior from their partners.

- 50% of all respondents rated financial concerns as the most significant source of stress during pregnancy.

- 83% of expectant fathers talk to their pregnant partner's belly, half on a daily basis and 1/3 "every now and then"

- Yelling and frequent mood swings were the most commonly reported abnormal behavior reported in their partners.

- Two thirds of respondents felt that information for expectant fathers was "spotty, but out there."

Please keep the responses coming, and I'll publish the full set of results when finished.
