Are me and my pregnant girlfriend drifting from eachother or is it the hormones?

We were together only 3 months and we found out she was pregnant. Before that it was amazing, we loved eachother, couldn't get enough of eachother tbh always laughing/talking. Now it's totally changed, she's now 3 months pregnant and she seems like she doesn't want to spend as much time with me, she can be blunt and really quiet even snappy at me. But she's apparently not like this when she goes to see her friends. I really love this girl and I want to support her and our child as best I can but it feels like I'm getting pushed away.. i can deal with her like this but I feel she doesn't want me around, this is my first baby so I'm  asking Is it just the partner that gets this kind of treatment?

If I were you, I would gently ask her to sit down and tell her what you are feeling. Ask her, and tell her that you aren’t going to judge how she feels and that you just need help to understand what’s going on.
When I was pregnant with my first baby, I got VERY irritable with my husband for hardly any reason. When we are pregnant , so many hormones and changes are happening sometimes we don’t even realize what’s going on. A lot of my friends that are pregnant have one or two people that just seem to get on their nerves for no reason! It’s all hormones.
I just suggest not making her feel like a jerk for it, because we already get insecure and short-tempered enough when we are pregnant. The last thing you want to do is make her feel like you are attacking her.
Good luck!

This is so hard.  Hormones do indeed make us a little crazy during pregnancy.  I agree to talk to her and just tell her that you want to be there for her.  Let us know how it is going!
