Even DF was like this and is only getting more excited as it becomes more real. Deep down she is super excited and she expresses how desperately she wants kids - that's why she wants to carry first. Her trouble was not wanting to get too excited before we actually start trying. Now that it's not far off she is starting to show her excitement more
Two girls, one dream and baby you are it!

Totally same here MrsT. Think it's not close enough to be "real" yet. I don't think he'll fully get into it until at least next year and when I start telling him to taking his multi vits lol.
DH will def be a good daddy as he is fantastic with my nephews and everyone always talks about how good a Dad he will be because he is SO energetic with them, throwing them up in the air, swinging them round, they love him. So when we are expecting, I can imagine he will be very nurturing and probs go into overdrive with reading etc...making up for lost time of tuning me out hahah

I don't think my DH intends to ever read anything in his entire life, but I'm sure he will get involved other ways lol.

My weigh in 53.5kg and ran and walked 3km
My DH wasn't overtly excited about the whole baby thing. But he wasn't overtly excited about going to Europe either until about 2 weeks ago (we go this week).
So I think with him it's just a time thing.
Initially I thought he wasn't keen but then when we decided we'd TTC early next year I could see he is secretly interested. He's just not as hyper as me but that's his personality
And happy birthday Jen
Kimnus - how's your DD? I hope she's feeling better.
MrsT - well done on setting boundaries. I think it's hard to follow through because you don't want to be firm with the one you love. Or at least it is for me. But I understand how important it is. Especially when you have kids.
And I don't think it's important for your DH to read all the baby books. My friend's DP didn't read any and he's an awesome dad

That's so exciting Coco. We want to go to France and do a roadtrip next Sept. Although, if I am UTD that might not be such a fun trip, no drinking and possible morning sickness-we will see.
Happy birthday too Jen! Hope it was a lovely day.
Really you can read all the books in the world and not change your ability or inability to be a good parent, because a large part of it comes down to your personality! I guess I'd just like DH to know some of what I'd be going through being pregnant. Mind you, I think I'd be telling him how I was feeling anyway, especially if I was experiencing ms
Well done on the weight loss progress too Coco. I have lost a 1.5kgs, so only 2kg more to go! Hopefully I'll be there by mid Sept. I hate it when AF comes MrsT. It completely throws my good eating out, because I just crave chocolate and junk! And it makes me bloat

I'm not really a fan of books when it comes to child rearing, but I do read a lot of articles etc. I know a lot of it comes down to instinct, you just have to do the best that works for you and bub. No other parent-child relationship in the world is exactly like yours.

This is true! And a lot of the same things in those books are found on the internet and are free!! Even all my cookbooks are not used all that much because I like to google recipes and see which ones are reviewed the highest

So today I started a list of essentials only for bubs arrival. Eg furniture and nappies basically. I've also put how much they will cost full price and if I can get second hand how much will save. Once I've finished the list I will share I'm interested in what others think re importance of the item, and appropriateness of the pricing :-)
Hopefully will be done tonight.
