JLorenzo - April 3

Hi all, I wanted to give my email address to people who may want to continue chatting with me. I feel like I have met some nice people and would perhaps like to continue talking with them. I am leery about giving out my work email so I will give you a secondary account I use: [email protected] Please feel free to email me if you would like to continue talking...and thanks to some people for the really nice things you said.

If you didn't already leave and you see this then just srcew all the people that are getting annoyed with you being here. We are pregnant, our hormones are going crazy, and some people just have to find something to be catty about. And a guy that they can bit*h at through a computer probably just makes them feel better. You have been around here for a while and you do have a few friends here and you shouldn't let a few pain in the a__ses run you off. Amazing that as nasty as people got sometimes I never saw you get nasty back. But whatever. Do what you feel comfortable doing, I just hate for a person here for a good reason, that is actually pretty nice is leaving because of nasty people. Oh well. Good luck with your wife's delivery, and whatever else you all do.

I second what Misty said. Don't let the raging hormones chase you off. Stick around, we enjoy your wit, intelligence, and manly advice. :o)

Thanks Missy and Tiffani...I should have said that I wasn't really offended by any of the comments. I honestly don't care and realize that my opinions and advice will not be agreed upon by everyone. I simply thought it would be nice to chat via email and also to exchange some pics of the babies when they are born. I should have said that in my post.

Hey JLo, thanks man. I bet you can see the finish line from where you are now (36 weeks?). Look for my email soon, but I figure you are about to become too busy to even drink or eat, much less answer emails :-))

BBK, do you have kids yet or is this the first? I am scared and nervous and wondering how good of a parent I will be. I guess this is typical of first time parents. I will use your advice and opinions if you don't mind giving them to me. I think it would be good to chat over email. I just don't want to clog up this website for the sole purpose of chatting with the friends I have made. You know what I mean?

 

BBK - April 4

I'm a first time parent too, (both of us) and freaking out. Soon I'll be holding this baby girl who will look at us as the sole providers of the life essentials as well as life education..... and I want to do everything possible to do it best without overdoing it. It's the greatest feeling in more ways than one, but also scary.

BBK, I tell ya buddy, we had our shower this weekend and the acc_mulation of "stuff" was overwhelming in itself. When you step back and realize the responsibility that will come with this, it can get overwhelming. And you hear from every parent, "your life is about to change." You understand what they mean, but you have no idea in what ways it will change. Oh well, glad we have the ability to communicate our concerns and experiences...whether it be here or over email.

I know everyone is right that our lives will change... but there are moments when it bothers me when they act like it is a huge negative thing. There are some "rays of sunshine" out there whose comments I have to ignore, or I think I'd go insane. Sure there are things like sleep deprivation, lifestyle compromise etc. But it can't be all bad, just look at how many people on here are ttc their 2nd, 3rd, 4th....

 

BBK - April 4

D you're right, it's not that bad at all. A friend with 2 daughters is telling me this: Kids are fun.... you'll have great fun till the day comes where you call your psychiatrist to have your head examined..... he's just kidding of course ! :-) Most parents I know are really happy with their kids. They don't call them bundles of joy for no reason ;-)

Josh, hope you don’t mind my adding my addy to a thread you started for yours, but it couldn’t hurt to have yet ANOTHER fellas input on things. I think it’s funny that the three guys who’re on this site now are ALL having daughters (me, Josh and BBK). As for visiting this site, I can just picture it—“honey, can you come help me change our darling little girl?” “Sure, sweetie, just give me a couple minutes to post to this thread on a pregnancy forum.” WHAP, upside the head with a dirty diaper. Oh, and josh, my 5 sisters chose this time to have a war amongst themselves so instead a couple of them getting together for the big ticket items, my one sis that I’ve always been super close to has decided she’s gonna spend literally THOUSANDS of dollars on this kid—she did a feel-good shopping trip and spent a grand that day alone, as well as setting up and depositing $500 in a bank acct for her. According to her you can’t even SEE her bedroom floor it’s so full of baby stuff. I finally told her that at this point gift cards are gonna be a whole lot useful. We told her just bring a couple special items to the shower this weekend and we’d all go back to the house afterward and open the rest—luckily I’ve got a jeep Liberty and she has a Denali, between the two there MIGHT be enough room. And no, my family doesn’t have money, this one sister just happened to marry a great guy who’s been able to provide a fantastic life for her. Anyways my addy is [email protected], and BBK, it’d be great to hear from you to. Even though I have two daughters from a previous marriage I’m basically going thru all this for the first time so the more dads I can get input from as well as offer to the better. I swear, I went to the Dads forum on this site, OMG is it depressing!! Most of the threads were started by women\girls wanting to know why the father isn’t happy abt becoming a father, I kid you not! I’d love to start a site, something like Dads Without Dysfunctions, but there doesn’t seem to be enuff guys to make it worth it. My apologies for the length of this post, it just kept writing itself…..

 

BBK - April 4

Toes, you're a funny guy too!!! My wife would not ask me to help change the baby but will probably demand to know why I haven't done it already :-) WOW 3 daughters + your wife..... and 5 sisters? Do you have enough women around you or what!

BBK, the horror of it is I have two brothers, but they both live 2000 miles away so the only testerone input I get is from calling them. That and me and my oldest brother both play an online game, City of Heroes, so team up on there when we happen to both be on at the same time.

 

JLorenzo - April 4

That sure would be nice to start a website for guys that actually have legitimate questions. I grew up with my mom and two sisters. Perhaps that is exactly the reason we care enough about our wives to inquire about their conditions.

 

tara - April 4

I have to agree with you JLorenzo. I have a younger brother who is so sweet and is always asking how we are and now that he is old enough tries to take care of us (my mom, sister, and I). All his girlfriends adore him and I think it's becuase he grew up with 3 females around all the time - my dad never spend time with any of us so he learned everything from females in the house. I think his wife will be very lucky to end up with such a caring husband.
