Naming Nuances

This is my hubby's first baby, my third. He is thrilled, obviously, to finally have his own. If it's a boy, it will be named after him, Francisco Ramiro Rodriguez III... the baby being the fourth. However, if it's a girl (my first girl), he wants to name it something I abhor: Adrestia Patience Rodriguez. Ugh!

How Can Military Dads Stay Involved With Their Families?

Dear Mr. Dad,
My wife and I are expecting our first child. The problem is that I'm in the US Marine Corps on tour in Iraq. I have been here since the beginning of the pregnancy and I might not be there for the birth of our child.

My wife is having a hard time doing this on her own and I feel that there's nothing I can do to support her. I'm reading your book, The Expectant Father, which I find very helpful. But do you know of any resources that are specifically aimed at military dads and/or their families?

My husband wants me to have an abortion

I am currently 6 weeks pregnant. My husband and I have been together for 6 years and married for 8 months. This will be our first child, but he wants me to have an abortion. He feels we are not ready financially, although we both have pretty good jobs. Plus, he says we haven't even been married a year yet, so we should wait. I want to have this baby. But, I want to make him happy and I don't want him to leave. What should I do?

Not sure what to make of my husband

So we have decided. We are going to try for a second child. He is all for it. We are increasing our sex and not using any barriers. Yet, he keeps saying well I want to go on vacation before we get pregnant. Your not really ovulating right now are you? This is just practicing right? He keeps confusing the heck out of me. Either we are trying to have a child or we are not. There is no in between on this because what happens once I am finally pregnant? Then what. I don't understand and I am horrible at speaking guy.
