My husband, Austin is a nervous wreck! It's pretty funny to watch! Should he be this nervous?

How far along are you? My husband was nervous in the beginning and still is if he thinks about it too much. He is worried he won't be a good dad but I know he will. It is a total change of lifestyle and a huge new responsibility. Our lives will never be the same. I can understand how he is nervous.

i became a happy camper when we got the news, im walkin around since with a smile, i guess everyone handles it difrent.

i think if u initiate out of the blue reassuring words like
"i know ur gonna be a gr8 dad"
"our kid is the luckiest with a dad like u"
and things like that might ease him, not to often and spontaneously might just do the trick

Maybe is so nervous because he realizes how important being a father is. It could be a blessing. I agree with the other posts. He just needs a little reassurance and maybe a few good books addressing his concerns so he feels normal.

Ladies,

I am writing a review for a new book called Be Prepared, A Practical Handbook for New Dads. You can expect to see my review on the Baby Place web site in a couple of weeks in the books section. The book is by Gary Greenburg and Jeannie Hayden. It's not a pregnancy book per se, but rather a book to be read by the father during the 1st year. It?s a great book. I have to admit that I picked up the 'What to Expect" series and put it back down pretty quickly. It?s just not for guys. This book, Be Prepared, is for guys. It?s written in a humorous way that will make your partner laugh as he learns how to deal with junior or junioritta. The book is published by Simon & Schuster and costs $11.95.

I think it's normal for 1st time daddies. My husband just thought it was surreal and I don't think he really accepted it until he actually saw our daughter and held her in his arms.... Then, he started to freak out a little. He would actually wake up several times a nught to make sure she was still there and breathing!! :lol:
