Life Changing Appointment

I mentioned in my previous post that I had to go to a doctor’s appointment with my wife. The reason is because that was her very first ultrasound appointment. That’s right. She’s pregnant. I’m going to be a father for the first time.

I was tired when we first got there, but once that picture came up on the screen, I was wide awake. I was seeing my child. It’s still a little hard to believe.

Since my wife and I have been telling people, we’ve been getting the same 2 questions over and over again.

1. Do you know what you’re having?

No. It’s still too early. We probably won’t know if it’s a boy or girl for another 2 months.

2. Are you ready?

I always give the same answer to this question: “As ready as you can be before your first child.” Because, until you have a child, you don’t know the full extent of what you’ll have to do.

I’ve been babysitting my nieces and nephews for years, so I’ve had a bit of experience with children. The thing about that is, when you’re babysitting, you give the children back. It’s not a 24/7 job. So, all the experience in the world won’t fully prepare you for when that moment finally comes.

I think I’ll do a good job when my baby finally gets here (at least, I hope I will), but, luckily, if there’s something that comes up that I’m not sure about, I have a great support system. My mother lives very close to me, so I can always go to her. Plus, both of my brothers are great with their children and I can always talk to them about it. I’m sure that once this baby is born, they’ll get tired of getting calls from me.

    You will do great! Yes, seeing the baby is amazing! It took my breath away everytime I ultrasound… Just wait until you feel him/her kick for the first time. I can tell you as a first time parent I was scared as hell, and didnt sleep for the first few weeks. You get a little more at easr over time. Im exhausted as a new mom, but wouldnt trade it for anything. Its the best feeling in the world to see little eyes staring at you!

    I always answered that question with: a baby. It pisses people off but its fun.
