Have you ever had really really bad caffeine jitters? That’s nothing compared to this.
I’m not afraid to be a dad or anything. I’m actually super excited. We are well prepared but still. It’s pretty surreal.
Anyway, her (gross female stuff) -> mucus plug just came out which apparently means she could go into labor any minute or in the next two weeks.
Now I’m running around like a maniac making sure our to do lists are taken care of and also lurking outside her home office like she’s a time bomb about to go off.
Anyway, pray for us and wish us luck!
I wish you the best of luck on being a dad. I really dont know what else to say. I keep typing sentences and deleting them.
Best of luck and congratulations! Kids are amazing. Hopefully the wait won’t be too long.
Good luck to you and your wife! It’s hard to write advice to people about this, but rest assured, you will find your own way as a parent.
Stay safe and good luck pops! Sending the wife and kid strong vibes
You got this. Be there, and be positive. Oh, and give her a really nice meal right now, because at a certain point she won’t be able to eat, and she’ll be really hungry eventually I still remember making my wife a really big breakfast the day before our son was born.
Awesome! Good luck! I still remember vividly when my wife’s water broke almost 12 years ago.
Best of luck & congrats man!
Before my son came I was still a performing classical musician and teaching at a University… and didn’t even know what a mechanical keyboard was.
After many years of being a stay at home dad, I haven’t touched my clarinet in over a decade and there’s this whole mechanical keyboard thing. Weird how life changes so quickly.
I feel like I’ve lived at least 3 different lives up to this point.
Also, the diaper thing is probably the easiest part about being a parent. So don’t be worried about that part.
Wow, amazing. Sending the best of luck and prayers to you and the family!
Good luck and you will be ok!
I just hope you’ve slept a lot in your life so far. Just saying
Yo, for real. @ddrfraser1 if you need to talk to people about how crazy your life feels, we’re here. We might very well understand where you’re coming from.
It actually says a lot about this community that I’m sharing this here and not on FB or anywhere else. You guys and gals are my bros.
This is excellent advice that no one talks about. If labor has to be induced a woman could be in the hospital for 1-3 days on a mostly restricted or liquid diet and no one warned us about it.
Yup. I told her once she goes into labor I’d feed her a high carb meal like one she would eat before a marathon.
Congrats, and good luck! Our second child is due in a few weeks and my SO is quite fed up with being this big, but we are looking forward to meeting our baby.
And please, please, be a father. Including handling diapers, cleaning, making dinner, taking your part in your childs life. It’s so easy not to do so.
Congrats and good luck to all three of you!
