I'm gonna be a dad!!!
« on: May 13, 2008, 08:43 AM »
As many of you know, my wife Amber and I were supposed to have a little one this month, but for some reason unknown to us she miscarried at 14 weeks back in November.

So, when Amber told me she was pregnant again, we were very excited, but yet extremely cautious for obvious reasons.  Well, yesterday we went in to get a sonogram and she's at 9 weeks and our little one is doing fine!!  The due date is in December, so this year looks like dad won't be getting his usual birthday hookup with "stuff", but instead with a little one. ;D

We are most excited, yet again, cautious and praying that we don't have to go through another miscarriage.

Congratulations! That's great news. I bet you are hoping for a boy so you can say the extra star wars toys you buy are really his.

Chris,

I know exactly what you are feeling. My wife and I had the same situation. To say the least it totally sucks to loose a baby, but you guys are expecting again and that is great. Congrats. Best of luck.

Congrats and good luck Chris.  The "its for the kid" line is a good one, but only if the toy is vaguely age appropriate (and you aren't using it on your Wife, she will never believe you).

Play the it's for the nephew card works too. Regardless if you have one or not. But with a baby, you get the option of collecting Gallactic Hero's for the kid. I did, and he loves them.
