    Yeah!!! We are pregnant

    I thought I posted here last week already same time I did at HK, I guess I was too excited.

    Went on a ride yesterday and found myself riding differently. I used to do a drift here and little air there, but yesterday I just pretty much stay on the ground. I just got chicken out all of the sudden

    Anyway YEAH!!!

    Yep we are definitely nervous. My wife is very excited but worry at the same time. Dr said that the first trimester is the most critical one.

    Well then this is extra special!!! We chose to only have one but I remember everything from the moment I came home from work to a room filled with blue and pink balloons, to the moment my wife's water broke, to the hours of waiting, to the moment I saw my daughter for the first time (welling up now), and every wonderful thing that has happened since for the past 11 years. Nothing can prepare you for what you are in for as a parent. It's the scariest, hardest thing you'll ever do in your life, bar none.

    But...it's also the best thing that you will ever live to experience together. All of the hard work both mentally and physically will be rewarded unlike anything you can possibly imagine.

    Good for you guys, this is fantastic!

    Thanks. I like kids, I usually rent my nephews and nieces and take them out to Disneyland, Seaworld, play golf and riding. Now I can do that with my own

    Hawg,
    Thanks, we both want a girl too. Some ask us how many do we want? I said it depends, if we have a boy then we want two, but if we've got a girl, we may stop there.

    lol, thanks. What rest? My wife gets the craving early, I've been doing all of the driving getting her stuffs. Tonight I'm going about half an hour out of the way to fill the order. For the last 2 months I've been on a diet, I lost 18lbs, gain 6lbs back last week alone. It was awesome

    Congrats man!

    A little advice: No matter how many books you read, classes you attend, or advice you get from close friends and family, you will still be unprepared once your newborn arrives. Trust me. There are things that happen that you just can't study or be prepared for. I still remember wiping diarrhea splatter off the wall about 5 feet off the ground. Yes....I wasn't prepared for that. lol.
    I like to hug trees at FULL SPEED!

    Congratulations and sleep now. And watch your weight. My wife was crazy ravenous for hot turkey sandwiches during her first pregnancy. We drove all over trying to find the best one. She ate a ton, I ate a ton. She had a baby and lost the weight. I look like I am still having a baby. Same thing with the second child.

    Seriously, congratulations. It will change everything about you and your life. It is a great thing.
    On MTBR, the reputation is infamous.

    Grats!!!

    Everyone else throwing out advice, ill add in as well.

    Enjoy having a young child. You will be stunned how quickly it passes. It seems like yesterday my x told me she was preggers, now my oldest daughter is 20 and my "baby" is 13. Young kids need you and actually WANT you around. Dreams, ambitions and hobbies will suffer, but they will be there waiting for you in 10 years when your children are more independent. If you make the mistake of trying to live your life the same way you did before you had a kid, your marriage will suffer and you will lose quality time with your family that you can never get back. Yes, i speak from experience.

    I am an uncle also, thought I knew what having kids would be like, then I had my own. I know every once in a while even I gets lucky, or maybe it's just good planning idk, but Man, the best thing ever possible, enjoy every moment, it goes too quick.
    Round and round we go

    Lol, thanks. We have a lot of catching up to do for sure. I like kids not so much unpredictable infant, but I have a feeling that it would change. I'd definitely keep the projectile diarrhea in mind

    Thanks, I'm the same way too, every time I work or spend time with pregnant ladies I gain weight too, especially with my wife now. Not sure yet what's her thing so far she craves just about anything.

    It's funny, at 42 I'm such a noob in all this, the only good thing is we are at least financially prepared can't imagine doing this in my twenties.

    I guess one of the perks of having a baby later in life is, I've done it all already, and now I'm ready for the next stage. My wife and I been trying for 2 years, about 7 months ago we considered in vitro, got the consultation but was told that we had to give it a try "officially" for one year. Now I'm relieved, no more charts, calendar, and not to mention perform under pressure

    I wish it was our case. It was kinda anticlimax for us, my wife found out last Monday night with the test kit, she was excited but we wanted to be sure so we went to get another brand, another positive, then I made the appointment to the dr, not til Thursday we had a confirmation, by then there's no jumping up and down

    Girls are a pita early in your lifetimes and then after college, they bloom into these beings that love to hang out with you. Boys are low maintenance and will wander away with their GFs and wives. At least, that's what my mama tells me.

    I love my parents to death even though they drive me crazy. I think dads often have a unique bond with their daughters. A lot of my GFs are total daddy girls.

    I would like a girl. Just so I can dress them up in cute outfits. :P

    That's a good insight, thanks for sharing. I think that boys are more butt heads and prone to get into trouble, judging from myself. Girls seem smarter when they are young and gets into less trouble. Then a gain what do I know

    I don't have a daughter but my brother does (and 2 sons, aged 17 and 19). She's 21 and in college now. Although all his kids totally dig him, his daughter has maintained the closest relationship with him. And growing up they seemed to have the strongest bond. I believe that having a daughter elicited an extra defensive mechanism in him whereas like GOB mentioned the boys just kinda do their own thing.

    Thank you for the post, I'm a avid player in many sports that are neutral gender and I know boy or girl if they are interested in the same sport they would just kick A$$. First time that I ever want a girl is when I play golf with my ex-girlfriend, 5'3", in college, she's a scratch golfer I was may be a 12 hdcp. I got down to a 4 but could never beat her(that's why she's my ex) I remember she just pretty much kick everyone's butt.

    I remember one time we were playing from the blue tee and the guys we paired with said to her the girl's tee is over there and when you are ready you can hit, she said she just wanted to play with me, she went first and killed a shot down the middle abut 275yd and I went similar distance, the 2 guys couldn't take a back swing. They kept their mouth shut for the rest of the round, it was priceless. We had many similar experience but this was the most memorable.

    I have a 4 year old boy and a 2 year old girl.

    boys are harder to potty train, but you can fling them around more wrestling.

    girls are easier to potty train, but do not like to be flung around so much.

    that's about it IME

    congrats....you're gonna have fun

    Mimi, I had a boy and not a girl, which is probably a
    good thing. If I had a girl, the first guy that showed up
    to take her out on a date I would want to kill. I know
    this because I was one of those guys.

    I know how that feels, I could always put up the pic of my gun collections in the living room when I interrogate the boy.

    here's the order of milestones that will make you and the Mrs. jump for joy:
    1. Sleep through the night
    2. Potty trained
    3. When they can get up and make their own breakfast


    I am only at #2....and cannot wait for #3

    Boys dont like to snuggle, dont bond with dad as much, are far more risk of getting into trouble with the law as teenagers, and when they grow up they join the family of the woman they marry.

    Girls like hugs, bond with dad, get better grades, scare the hell out of you when they start liking boys, and then bring you a new "son" when they grow up and get married.

    I've always thought it's the other way around well as far as moving in to the in laws.

    I've never thought of kids being so rewarding til last week. Then everything changed. I've never even met the baby yet, it's weird.

    'Bout to say the same thing.

    Forgot to mention this would be the first pregnant in our immediate family, my brother can't have one and both my sisters are not marred. The baby would be very popular in our household.

    I have no advice for parenting other then its a personal thing on how you go about raising your kids. Your molding them every day and sooner then you think that clay will set.

    BigRingGrinder said it I and others will repeat it.


    KIDS GROW UP FAST.

    Its more a warning then anything.


    Boys vs Girls? I got both (one of each) as long as thier heathy who cares my Daughter is a Tom boy in a princess dress. My son covers himself in mud then has to check his hair.



    I dont know like I said nothing in the world is better or can fill you with more joy.
    The day I became a dad most my ambitions fell to the side. My bigest goal is to be the best dad I can be. All other goals and ambitions arnt as important any more.

    Nothing better in this world then kids.

    Count yourself truly lucky
