Okay boys, your wife is pregnant and things are starting to get interesting. The hormones are kicking in and things can get a little bit dicey. There are so many areas of discussion that can get you into hot water. Here are few typical issues faced by the unassuming dad-to-be.
Honey! I'm pregnant! These three words can get your pregnancy off to a bad start. Having interviewed hundreds of new dads across the world for the Being Dad films, I've identified one universal male emotion when it comes to pregnancy -- denial.
It's down to the last trimester and your partner is really looking pregnant. This is where for half of you out there the question of sex during pregnancy can become problematic. Yes, you still find your wife attractive but the thought of having sex with her bothers you. Fear not...you are not alone.
I'm really excited about my wife's pregnancy and started to go to the doctor's appointments with her. But the doctor basically ignores me or gives me a silly looking smile. I want to stay involved but I'm getting really angry. Is there anything else I can do?
Dear Mr. Dad,
My girlfriend and I are about to become parents. She wants to get married before the baby is born, but I don’t really see the point. Can’t unmarried parents be just as committed as married ones?
Do not wait for depression to clear before seeking help. Your husband may need medical attention and a counselor can advise you. You should see improvement after 2 weeks of counseling.
Dear Mr. Dad,
I am 16 and I have found out am having a baby. How do you think my dad would take the news?
On top of the rumpled sheet were two long white things, which I mistook for thermometers. She had been sick lately, and I figured she had been taking her temperature. Twice, for some reason. When I blinked, the thermometers turned into something more interesting: home pregnancy tests.
My girlfriend is pregnant. I have tried to talk to her but she does not want to talk about it. She is sad and embarrassed and says she can't take it. I don't know what to do. I mean I don't want to be a dad. Well, I do but not now.
