all I can say is good luck with the whole thing - pregnancy, birth, and baby. if u need any advice from new fathers, it looks like we have a few in the forum, and I can only speak for myself, but feel free to PM any time if you have any questions.

One bit of advice that I got on names: once you choose a name that you and your girlfriend like, don't tell anybody the name. If you tell 5 people a name, 1 person is sure to criticize it and then you'll start to doubt it. Pick it, and keep it to yourself.

Just wanted to say congrats and good luck. I have no opionion on names for you.

Fatherhood is terrific. It is demanding and will force you to grow up quickly but it is rewarding. Your live does change but that is only a negative or positive thing depending on your attitude.

kindergarten might be tough for a young skydog... :lol: Two months ago you needed help on how to clean your pipe :D now your having a baby. You've come a long way, young jedi..Wow.

No matter what choices you guys make your lives will change drastically. To be responsible for another life is really an enormous responsibility. However, to be called daddy and to love and be loved so much is phenomenal. As someone who tried just about everything and thought he'd felt everything there was that moment when my daughters were born that was just mind blowing.

I wish both of you Health, wealth and happiness.
Sincerely, joe

I applaud your maturity and fortitude chubbypony. I'm 23 and I consider myself and my life pretty well together for... my age. Even so the mere thought of myself having kids is well enough to scare the pants right back on me. Many congratulations, good luck.

I'm 23 and my girlfriend is... well... late. I dunno what's up yet but I'm just glad I've had my career in order for 2 years now (engineer). At least I've got funds (if it does turn out I'm a dad). I wish you the best of luck chubbypony and look forward to hearing of little chubbypony soon. I guess it is mating season for humans after all.

Oh, and on names... I like Hunter for a boy and Sicilia (sp?) for a girl.
