Hello, in the last few years I've gotten a lot of "living things" in my house, a girlfriend, a cat, a dog, a second cat, ... but now, I'm proud to announce that a new person (as of this point yet of unknown gender and a name veiled by the utmost secrecy) is expected to make it's way out of the holy womb ("Heil baby" if anyone saw that episode from Married with Children) We've been well on our way for 7 months now (expected date = 02/05/2013) and eventhough I've had tons of information and preperation, I recently encountered some more info I wasn't prepared for, and from what family and friends keep telling me, there'll always be a lot more things I wasn't aware off. Having said so, for the people that had kids, how did your life changed the most? Specifically during the pregnancy, the first weeks/months after birth, and then your life ever since? And if possible, about as many topics: personality change, social contact, personal time off, physical appearance, ...? Just trying to get the most ideas possible about best/worst case scenario's, seeing how some people try to force me into a goodie good daddy life, while others say everything will be ruined, some say I will be a wrack of misery while others say I will glow with happiness, and eventhough I'm guessing it'll be something in between, I'm kind freaked out about what will really happen to me.
