My name is Daniel, I am 22 years old, and I am from Canada.
I have joined this site because I want to learn more about pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting. I want to expand my knowledge of parenthood and be ready as much as I can before my girlfriend and I start trying to have a baby.
I am also here to make new friends, support and give advice to others, and be here for anyone who needs someone to talk to or a shoulder to cry on.
Welcome to Pregnancy.org. You have a wonderful goal and certainly there are plenty of resources available here on preparing to start a family, pregnancy, parenting, and much more... as well as the terrific people here. Are both you and your girlfriend ready to start a family soon or still in the 'thinking about it' stage?
Thank you MissyJ! I just didn't want to make any of the women here uncomfortable with a guy on this website. We know we both want children, we just want to wait until we have both moved in together and we are ready to start a family.
The ones I worry about are those that aren't honest about who they are from the get go. :P It sounds like you are at a really cool stage in your relationship with things moving forward. Definitely enjoy one another and work on being best friends. You'll need that sense of humor to help when you're both playing chicken to see who gets up to change the diaper blow out. LOL
We are primarily a site of women but that doesn't mean a few brave (male) souls haven't drifted in when they had time. You may enjoy some of our personal favorite resources (and my husband's as well!)... takes on the journey to parenthood from the Being Dad team:
