    Celebration and terror

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by LordKyleOfEarth, Dec 6, 2011.

    My wife just got a 'Pregnant' result on a home test! We won't know for-sure for-sure until a doctor confirms things, but I'm about 90% sure I'm a father-to-be! I've never been this excited/terrified ever in my life. I have no idea how we are going to afford a kid, but then again, no one ever does and things tend to work out fine. :D Woot! also :eek: AAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!

    Holy guacamole, Kyle!! :eek: Congratulations on your new role in life! And thank you for sharing your big news with all of us; I am so excited for you. Are you going to find out what the sex is any time soon, or will you choose to wait? And it looks like (s)he'll be a late-August or September baby... Virgos are the best! ;)

    A very happy holiday gift to you and your wife, I'm sure. :) Congratulations; I hope you keep us in on the important updates. So happy for you!

    Congratz and good luck. I'd give advice, but I'm 16 so.. I don't have any. Except maybe invest in ear plugs if you want any sleep.

    Had the first sonogram today; I'm twice as excited and twice as terrified now. Well, maybe four times as excited and two times as terrified.

    Awe Jelly Beans! I love babies. Probably why I became a breastfeeding councilor. And the lactation aspect and working with moms and their babies is what pushed me into medicine. Clinicals, here I come.

    Seriously, it will work out. I also nannied twins, both with special needs. Me, children, and parents have all survived! No go fetch her some ice cream and pickles! Congratulations papa!

    Congrats on the twins!

    I have two cousins that had twins their first times (in their early 20's I might add). They all turned out just fine, and they are as cute as can be. I see no reasons for your situation to be any different. :D
