"I'm going to be a father!!!!"


  

          

Wife took the pregnancy tests yesterday and one today. We've been trying for almost 3 years, basically since before we got married. This is the 1st late period, 1st positive pregnancy test, now going to the OBGYN next week for blood work.

Just last week, we were talking about being ok if it doesn't happen, the world is crazy and maybe it would be besting being a double income no kids household, travel more, spoil nieces and nephews, be selfish with our wants and keep it moving. Now though, I'm beside myself.

We've only told her mom and she's ask me not to tell anyone else out of percussion and not wanting to jinx it. I couldn't help myself, I had to share it.

I'm over the top happy. I'm nervous as hell too. I am hoping everything turns out well and I am wishing her a smooth pregnancy. We talked about being prepare mentally for something to happen, but we're not dwelling on that.

child birth is kinda supposed to have a bit of an edge of drama/uncertainty to it.

its good to be in touch with whats going on with you. being nervous is a sign that you're involved and focused.

But, remember to keep a very cool head, be calm, expect nothing and everything at once.

I had two radically different births between my two and even with the "easy" birth it was one thing after the other.

I don't want to give you my birth stories because thats just rude, and one thing you have to look out for is being bombarded with each and every bad birth story out there.

"Oh! Oh my god! You're pregnant! Let me tell you about the time I had to crawl through a field of glass while in labor for 40 days..."

the point is, there is no such thing as 100% effortless/smooth/easy when it comes to birth. It's a stupid emotional rollercoaster ride with amazing prizes at the end.


Go with the flow.



Call your insurance or read through things to see whats on the table. Look and see what your jobs offer for expecting parents. The laws have changed recently and I think men now get...3 weeks paternity. Save up those days. Don't be that dad that never goes to doctor appointments - I went to 90% of them and don't regret a second.

my second kid was born in a hospital - the first kid was not

its a HUGE difference the level of care you get in a hospital, that shit is designed to be sure you're successful as a parent.

don't do any of this on your own. i mean, parenting IS figuring shit out as you go along, but there is no point to figuring out stuff thats either a 5 minute conversation or a 5 week lesson.

right now, my wife and I discussing a few things.

Her current OBGYN and what her take on pregnancy and delivery are.

Which hospital to go to

With covid how we will do classes

She would like to look in to a doula

What materials we should start reading.

So a lot to figure out, we're both currently enjoying the news and are just all smiles with each other.

Not sure honestly. I feel eager to nurture my child. I'm excited about the responsibilities and possibilities that come with it. So mentally, yes I feel ready.

My wife and I are in good financial shape, we have savings, we have decent jobs, we have education, we have family, and we both want o be parents.

I feel ready, but who knows how ready one will be. My biggest worry is what happens if we have a severely ill child, the hardships and stress that may come from that.

In terms of prep, not much as of yet aside from the savings, once we get over the 3 month hump, we will start more planning.

There's nothing quite like that particular shade of excitement.

Especially if you've been trying to make it happen. That's an extra special feeling.

Congrats. Can't wait for the DOB post!
