I am going to be a dad


I am going to be a father, I have so many things going on right now in my mind, I am excited about being a father, my gf is 2 months in her first trimester, it is all new too us, we both have mixed feeling and fears like if we are going to be good parents, where do we want to raise our kids, and wow I hope the everything goes well. Does anyone have any tips or thoughts on what it is like being a parent?

Re: I am going to be a dad


first off...thats awesome man!! second, i can't give much advice since i'm not a parent but one thing i will say is to just love your kid to death. i think a lot of new parents worry so much about feeding,changing,cleaning,sleeping,etc.etc. that they almost forget about the most important thing every kid needs....love. congrats again man

Congratulations. I can imagine how that could be exciting, and yet scary as well. I'm sure you'll do fine.

Re: I am going to be a dad


One word of advice, if you dont like your job or you had a bad day, dont come home and take it out on your kids like my father did to me.

Congratulations on your good news

Re: I am going to be a dad


Thank you everyone for your support, I really appreciate that, but I am sorry to announce some horrific news, my gf had a miscarriage, maybe it was meant to be? Wow I am in shock, sorry everyone for not being on here enough, I have been really busy with planning and I was getting all excited, but it might be for the best at the moment, since we both have been really stressed, and anxiety ridden. I am going to post more often , everyone are such great people, I would love to meet you all one day, if that is possible
