hey chip.. that is awesome that you are sticking my your gf in a time like this. it only goes to show what kind of guy you are. i am 21 years old and expecting my second child tomorrow. i had my first son at 14 5 dasy shy of my 15th birthday and me and the father are still together after 9 years(in march). so i just wanted to let you know that it can be done and congrats on the pregnancy. parenting will come naturally to most, i know with my son i was not used to having babies around older children but not babies and we did awesome or at least i like to think that. he is now almost 7 in march attends grade 1 and he is an awesome child with a heart of gold. he would do anything for anyone. mind you has his bad habits just like every other child but he is worth everything to me. he is my lil man and i dont know what i would ever do without him. good luck!!

thank you to all, for as of right now i can relate to what court is saying, her moodswings are every irrating but i love her more then anyhing we have been together sence we were in the 6th grade(now in 10th), and ive also experienced some upsides, the other day when we went to the doctors we got the hear the babies heart beat for the first time, and to be honest, it brought a tear or 2 from my eye(lol that doesnt leave this forum)

courtney - December 31

hey chip!! just ask your doctor about them. they wont start till probably her 3rd trimester, but its good to get registered now!! your doctor will tell u alll about it. the cla__ses are usually once a week, and last a couple hours for about 4 weeks. they cover "caring for an infant" and your g/f's breathing and postions etc. during labor. highly recommend them!! will give u and mommy some time to bond also.

 

chip - January 1

Hi Chip, I know I'm a bit old for this forum (I'm 26), but I come here because I think a lot of these girls get a bad rep when all they need is some good, adult advice. Good for you for standing up and taking responsibility, this already proves you are on your way to being a good father. I have a five year old son, and I'm 33 weeks pregnant with my daughter, so I have quite a bit of experience. I think parenting cla__ses are great for parents at any age. You should contact your gf doctor. They should be able to give you a list of places that offer these cla__ses. You can also call the hospital that the baby will be delivered in, because that is usually where the cla__ses are held. You and your gf should read the book "What to Expect When You're Expecting". This book is largely considered the bible to pregnancy. You should also get the book "What to Expect the First Year". That book answers just about every question you may have about infant care. The best thing about these books is that they are written in plain english, and are very easy to understand. The advice I can give you about how to deal with your pregnant gf is this: Understand that her body is being flooded with hormones. She has no control over how these hormones will effect her, and unfortunately that could mean crazy mood swings. She doesn't mean to p__s you off, but she is feeling tired, hungry (or extremely sick), and she is probably really stressed out. She has to live with the baby growing inside HER body. A lot of men think they understand what their women are going through, but the fact is that you really can't fully comprehend it. This is not anything for you to feel guilty about, you just need to be as understanding as you can be toward her. I hope this helps, if you have any other questions ask away. I'll keep checking in. Good luck to you and your gf.
