Fatherhood In A Week

Friday is the day of the weekly visit to the doctor to get the good, the bad, and the ugly news from the doctor on how things are progressing pregnancy wise.

The Kid now weighs in at a hefty 3.5+ kgs and is expected to pack on the grams over the next seven days or so. The doc is of the opinion that next week will be as good a time as any for the little fella to make his grand entrance into the big bad world as we know it.

Any hopes of a normal vaginal birth have been dashed by the size of the little fella's head. So, next Friday, which also happens to be my Dad's birthday will be the big day.

I will be sure to post all the vital statistics sometime on Friday next week. Then again I am not sure that I will be getting too many spare minutes from now on.

What a coincidence to have the baby born at the same day as your father!

Hope all will be well, daddy :)

JSB...

Thanks! I will keep you posted.

Therry...

Strange how these things sometimes work out.

Rani...

Thanks, and I will pass on your offer to the wife. I am guessing that I am not going to be much help on that front. I am sure this is one are where mothers are going to be much more knowledgeable than I.

Mia...

Thanks, and will do.

Life changing indeed. I am looking forward to becoming a father on so many different levels (if that makes sense).

Thanks! There will be pictures of the Kid for sure. However, I do not know that there will be any of the actual birth itself :D

Too much information, if you get what I mean ;)

Every day during my hiatus period, the only title that I search from yours is the birth of the baby.

Hope everything's going well Rob and like therry's said, hope the baby born at the same day as your father :-)

Everything is going well. There is little doubt that the youngster will be born on his grandfather's birthday, as the birth is going to be a C-Section.

Whether he wants to or not, he will be making his grand entrance to this here big bad world on Friday no matter what.
