sharing the news
Today was a big day...
Today started off as a normal day off of work. Throughout the day I was mostly relaxed. This evening we went to meet our new doctor. Dr. Conter has been my fiancée's doctor for a long time, and after I met him, I knew he would be the right doctor to help us welcome our new bundle of joy into this world. He is very personable, and approachable.
Should he be there when you test? It all depends on your expectations. He is not apt to be as elated if it's positive or as sad if it is negative. On the other hand, if he's been excited about the whole babymaking thing...
So our plan of not telling any friends and acquaintances until after the ultrasound is not going so great! My friend called me about 6 times last night trying to get a hold of me because she heard through the grapevine that I'm pregnant!
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?
I am tired of being home with absolutely nothing to do. My boss has called me twice so far to see if I'll consider coming back to teach preschool, and I am so tempted. But I think that combination of fevers, germs, diarrhea that was so common for me when I worked there is just not going to be good during pregnancy.
Eventually, Sarah promised to try and keep the secret. "It's only seven more weeks," she said. "I can do anything for seven weeks." Seven weeks? I did a quick calculation. "How pregnant are you?" Her pregnancy, she explained, actually began two weeks before my sperm came anywhere near her egg.
I could not keep the news to myself for long. I had to tell my husband. He deserves to know and I want him to go to my appointments with me.
Explaining the process to children is easier than you think. Whoever came up with this statement never taught preschool while pregnant!
What do the words, "I am pregnant" mean to a soon-to-be father? Men talk about their readiness for parenthood in terms of personal freedom. They are aware of the financial burdens and social restrictions that come with the role of father.
