    First: congratulations.
    Second: Sleep as much as you can now. Once that kid is born, sleep will be a thing of the past. You will have vague memories of it, but that is all.

    You're having a baby......"OMAR??"......I'd have to say you should expect throngs of news media, thousands of dollars offered from top newspapers & magazines...TV show interviews and most definitely a sincere request to be studied by Scientists, biologists, anthropologists, mediums and psychics!

    I would also suspect you'll have a HELL of a time trying to nurse!!    WOW!

    Let me one of the first to Congratulate Sir.  Amazing!......

      Hi Paula,
      Yes, its true, when a woman is having a baby, the man may as well be pregnant, if my wife is not happy during pregnancy, Im not, if shes happy, I am. When she will be going through labor, I will be feeling pain as I see her pain. ;-)

    The first few year you can expect to be freaked out by quite a few things, but don't worry too much. Most things you will catch on to after a while, such as, remembering to burp your baby, after they have eaten, feeding them every two to three hours, changing them about every four hours.
    Just enjoy this time, and relax, and remember nobody is perfect, and go with your gut instinct on things. You will hear so much information, and many different opinions on how you should raise your child. But as long as you are doing the best you can as a parent, you should be fine. I have helped raise my niece, and three step-children, and they have all turned out wonderful.

    Congratulations on your bundle of joy!!!!
