February 2011, she told me that she has missed her periods, and she felt as if something was different. We went to our doctor on 16th. She broke the news and congratulated us. We can’t tell how happy we were. Our life has already changed.
One day, when you are least expecting, you wife is going to break the news you two have been waiting for so long. The blue lines are going to change your life forever. Your wife has been cautious every moment looking for signs; she has been looking forward to missing her periods. Every single sign had made her happy, and every period had made her sad. Now, when her pregnancy test is positive, she is bound to be over the moon. It is a feeling we men will never understand, but we can at least appreciate it. We are happy and we express our feelings in our own way.
We (men) have been comfortable in our life so far; now that our life is going to change we are supposed to be a bit nervous. Thoughts like if your baby is going to be healthy, if you are going to be a good dad, will you have enough money, is your wife going to change, what about all the parties and night outs, and what about sex, might make you crazy. Don’t worry, you are not being abnormal, you are just being a man.
Worrying about your baby’s health, being concern about being a good father, only means that you love your baby. Yes, your wife is going to become crazy and fat, but don’t worry you will get her, and your sex, back. Remember the hormones are playing haywire with her emotions. It is she who is carrying the baby for 9months, and all the pains associated with it. At the end it is she who has to push that big thing out of a small hole. You are lucky that you are not pregnant, respect that. You will slowly settle down and realize that you life is going to change for good…ours did.
The next nine months were amazing, we heard her heart beat for the first time, we felt her move for the first time, and we saw her face during USG for the first time. We felt like we were in love with each other all over again.
