Shocked So I'm Gonna Be a Dad (**Panic Mode**)

Yeah, so I found out about 8 or 10 weeks ago that my wife is pregnant with our first child. We're excited... got our first ultrasound tomorrow afternoon actually. She's about 11 weeks now.

WHAT DO i DO??? sick laughing

But seriously, any advice for a first-time dad?

Advice?
Pick a cool name, dont spare the rod, teach him/her the little things (dancing, basic car care, self defense, cooking. Things like that.), and enjoy the adoration before the teen years hit.

Thanks, sounds about right. This summer I saw my cousin going through the teenage years with her kids and it looks horrible. sad

If you were Pinnochio I'm guessing your nose would be around 80 miles long at this moment.


Err I mean, congratulations! There is the small chance your child could grow up to be a child star and then you can spend all their money before they turn 18. There are laws to prevent this, but a clever man could circumvent them.

^^^If you were an adult i'd care about your opinion.

Again, all the best, PL; not looking to Surtur up your thread, so i'll leave you to it for a bit.

Congrats!

Don't bother with parenting books, they're a load of crock.

Get used to no sleeping.

Don't joke or freak out about lactating breasts unless you enjoy sleeping on the couch!

The rest will come easy...you'll be surprised just how quickly your fatherly instincts kick in.

Thanks. Yeah, my wife got me a book when she told me the news. It's not so much about parenting, but information about the pregnancy process and what to expect when and doctor visits, etc.. Basically the writer just tries to be amusing the whole time, in most cases unsuccessfully. It's mostly useless.

Congrats, Leech

You probably don't want twins, you'll be getting very little sleep with one child over the next 12-18 months, you don't want to make that less.

It's a bit overwhelming at first, being responsible for another person that is completely reliant on. I didn't read any parenting books and I never cared for a child prior to my first being born, but all it fell into place rather well, almost natural.

I changed the first diaper on both my children so my wife could take a long needed sleep after delivery, be prepared for that first one if you do it, it's not like the rest that follow (ie regular baby doodoo), it's a tar-like substance that seems more akin to something that would come out of the ninth layer of hell instead of a baby's bottom.

Find your groove and stick with it. I don't know two parents with the exact same style.

Learn to let "Helpful" advice roll off your shoulders. You're going to be hearing tons of it.

Nurture your marriage. You will, more than ever, need to identify as partners other than 'mom and dad'.

Here, we just announced on Social Media (although most of our friends and family already knew). You'll get to meet me, my cat, my wife, and the inside of my wife's uterus, haha...



(I like to fancy myself a wannabe independent filmmaker, heh)

When naming your child always play the Rhyming Game. It can save the child some grief over the years.

And remember. If you have a boy. You only have to worry about one little penis. If you have a girl. You have to worry about ALL the little penises.
