    Congrats Craigys! :D

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Congratulations Craigy.

    The scans are awesome, the first time you see your child is an amazing moment.

    Went to the scans for all 5 of mine, every one of them had that incredible moment when they get it in focus and you can see the tiny arms and legs wriggling about.

    Massive congrats craigy!

    Well done Craigy and Mrs Craigy. It's your job to drink for two now that she can't. :-)

    Well I stopped drinking in support of my wife for all 3 pregnancies.

    Aye right!
    Congratulations! Has Rauper got a paternity leave policy?!

    Well that didn't go to plan, but when your wife's water breaks at 4am, bang on 37 weeks with an extended breech and an ecv booked for next week any birth plan goes out the window. Surreal. Amazing. Terrifying. The best thing ever.

    Cheers! Mum and daughter both well, still in the hospital though. Been sent home as visiting hours are over, pretty brutal when your wife is in a bad way and the security guards are on your back to get out of the building. Absolutely amazing seeing your child for the first time, she's the most beautiful thing I've ever been lucky enough to look at.

    @elstoof


    congrats!

    feel exactly what you're going through, bud

    12 years ago, nearly to the day, mrs hcnip developed pre-eclampsia at 32 weeks - mini hcnip was born at 36 weeks, but most of the time in between was spent going to, and leaving late at night, the john radcliffe hospital and that drive home alone leaving your wife and eventually kid as well while you feel helpless is a hard, hard thing - was just about at the point where they were sitting me down for the 'one or the other' decision but thankfully it didn't get that far

    but, yes, those first moments are priceless


    just a shame she's been a little fecker since....;)

    Better get one more ride in, in between visits. Might be your last for a few weeks!

    Good stuff. As members of the Dad's Group know (if you haven't joined, do!) , my first came at 32+4 weeks. We are now 2 whole days beyond that with No2!

    Congrats on the new arrival elstoof :)

    Feel I should pass on the best bit of Dad's Club advice I've had so far: get the fresh nappy down underneath the dirty one BEFORE removing it. This will save you many unnecessary clothing changes as they seem to have an unerring sense of when you have left their nethers unguarded.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Not universally great news like the normal wonderful news in here but due to tragic circumstance I am expecting to become legal guardian to a baby boy tomorrow.

    Really not prepared for this :/ I am sure everything with work out though. Of course I knew this could one day happen but you never really expect it to actually to become reality.

    Just a bit shocked and shakey all round really.

    Very Best of luck, It'll work out fine - it always does. Just have to get on with it and roll with the punches.

    Still haven't mastered the knack of this one. The one time I did, she somehow sent a streaming arc of parabolic piss straight over the edge of the changing table and onto the floor anyway. I was impressed with the audacity of it.

    Your husband has a parasitic twin?
  • Deleted user 30 October 2012 15:47:39
    No, it is just he has never eaten a pork bun.
