Maybe they know deep down that they should be suspicious but don’t want to believe that their partner could hurt them so deeply. Pregnant ladies are especially vulnerable because of their changing bodies and hormonal surges. Most men are decent human beings who stay true to their wives while they are expecting.

Pregnant Women Listen up! Here are 15 Signs He’s Cheating.
15 He Smells Like Someone Else's Perfume
One sign that your man is cheating on you is if you smell a perfume on him that is not your signature fragrance. He would have to get pretty up close and personal to another woman for her perfume to actually permeate and then linger on his clothes. If he walks into the house and an unfamiliar scent follows him inside, be suspicious.
Also be on the lookout for other obvious signs on his person that he’s been with another woman. One of the most glaring examples if you discover lipstick on his collar. Perhaps you find a lock of hair that is not yours on his clothes when you’re doing laundry. Another recognizable sign of infertility would be if he had a hickey on his body that didn’t come from your lips. This all sounds like obvious evidence but it’s all too easy to be blinded to overt clues.
14 He Suddenly Starts Working Late
If your partner suddenly has a change in his work schedule and he has to work late more often, he might be using that time to meet up with another woman. Of course, work schedules can legitimately change without that being the case. Yet, if your man shows up at home later and later, you have every right to be skeptical.

As a matter of fact, it’s not just a new found interest in lifting weights that can give away his infidelity. Any kind of drastic change in grooming habits can be a sign.
Did he change his hair style recently? Has his clothing tastes done a 180 from jeans and a t-shirt to dress pants and a button up? Is he wearing a new expensive cologne instead of smelling like his deodorant? Has he cut back on drinking beers with the guys and his beer belly is shrinking? If so, he may be messing around.
12 He's On His Phone All The Time

Are you the one doing all the work to keep your sex life alive?
