    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.

    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

    congrats on the score, takes a damn good shot to slip one past the goalie. Amazing how perspective on one's life and obligations can change after one good night, eh?

    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
