1.) We are such proud parents before the birth
2.) Immensely looking forward to the birth
3.) Were also shit scared beyond belief.
I've coped in some pretty hair raising conditions thus far in my life and I'm also reading anything and everything I can find to do with pregnancy. Whilst I understand that most advice is aimed at the generic average baby, and that I feel that so far I'm prepared enough as I can be (not that you can ever be prepared enough), I'm also having this god awful feeling of panic beyond belief and shitting bricks, and I've still got till June to go.
Anytime I need or want to go to an appointment with the other half, work have let me cut away and go. I have time off for paternity leave and excess holiday that I can take, however I won't be there as much as your "average" new father could be, even if I do pop up every weekend.
It's begining to get to me even though due date is in June, it's a combination of am I going to be good enough, is baby going to love daddy as much as daddy already loves him/her, is looking after a child and the sleepless nights going to break me where exercise and combat hasn't (yet).
Etc etc I could go on for ever, I know the fact that its hard is going to make it all the more worth while, just meh
