Default Re: New Lady Texan on the way

Well, for sure, a seasoned GRANDMA, PLUS 42 years experience as a Labor and Delivery nurse, can't let this thread pass her by!

I'm not going to tell you not to worry, because you have a lifetime of worrying about to begin. BUT, I can tell you to just relax, take one day at a time, and enjoy every minute of it. You'll have plenty of people around to help you with the worrying part, so put a smile on your face, sit back and enjoy the ride of your life.

Above all, remember this baby is YOURS, so what someone else did with their baby might not apply to you. You will be given more advice than you will know how to handle, SO please take a little from someone who has spent a lifetime working with new parents. Put the baby books away and use good old fashioned COMMON SENSE!! When in doubt, ask your new daughter's grandparents, the best source of info you will ever receive.

Congratulations to you and your wife!! The moment you first hold that new baby in your arms will be one of the sweetest you will ever know. Your fears will subside and the love you have in your heart will burst through. From that moment on your DADDY instincts will come through for you, and together with your wife and family, you will be blessed beyond anything you have ever dreamed.
