I am already 35 years old and never have any child to any ladies that been part of my life since I was teenager. More than 2 years ago I got married and after a month I left my wife for work outside our country. One month after I arrived home we tested a Pregnancy Test and the result was positive. I am very happy with it. Atlast, I can have an angel soon. To dear friends who has more experience during pregnancy period, what I am going to do to take care my wife and the baby. Please give me tips guys.

Congatulations to you and your wife. I was also excited when my wife got pregnant. One advice is to go for a regular check-up with a good OB-GYN. If you are just near our place, I can recommend you to my wife's OB-GYN but it seems you are too far. hehehe. You can find good OB in your place too. Giving your wife the nutrition that she needs will really affect your baby's growth. Don't let your wife got high blood sugar for this might affect the baby. Stress should also be avoided. There are lot of sites in the net that helps first timer parents like you. Try to go to mom center. I can also recommend you have a copy of the Smart Pregnancy Issue by Summit Media (Publisher of Men's Health Philippines). The cover of this magazine is Maricel Laxa. There are lot of tips and other informations about pregnancy there. If you cannot find it, try to request for a copy from them to send you. Just pay for it.

I am so thrilled for you and your wife! I noticed that after you arrived back home you have not been posting here and I was wondering if all was well. Now I realise that you were ... very busy Take good care of her and keep updated suring the following months because once your newborn arrives you will have no more time to be here

Hahaha.. of course even I am very busy I still visiting mylot. You don't know that since I arrive I always open my account but I am tired to post. Just only reading some friends comments and discussions. I don't have any good news to share with my friends until we found the result of my wife PT. Aside from that I am managing our offline business, the reason I can't concentrate on the net. My siblings always using the PC and in our shop and I used my Lappy, which I got a free wifi somewhere I don't know who own.

I read in your other comments that you will be leaving again. That is sad I hope that once you become a father you will be able to stay and have a job at home or you will miss out on so much.

I need to prepare my kids future. Better to do it now so that after maybe 5 years I will stay home and take care of my family. Rather than going again abroad leaving away from them which is very difficult.

First of all i'd like to congratulate you for being a daddy soon. You must remember that pregnant women have a lot of mood swings and they're very very sensitive. You might just be surprise when your wife will just suddenly cry without you having said anything bad or so you thought. So the most important thing is for you to make sure that she's comfortable at all times. Make sure she eats the right food and visits her obgyne regularly. When you sleep please be sensitive about her having feet cramps especially on the last trimester of her pregnancy.

I observe her lately, she's very sensitive to all things especially my words. She became silent and didn't tell anything why? She cannot understand also what her feelings, I agree the moods change everynow and then. My friends told me that preggy wife act that way and I should understand. This week we will visit our OB, actually my wife and that OB have constant communication. She got advice from her before I came home from abroad.

Pregnant women don't usually say what they feel because we, ourselves, don't understand why we are so sensitive and acting weird. Just be patient.

I rejoice with you in the happiness you are feeling, together with the excitement that soon, you'll be blessed with a wonderful child for you to minister to. A baby will always be a blessing to a family. It brings glad tidings to a couple who are together for some time - through marriage. The best tip that any one can do is to love your wife, cherish her and provide for her. That is the ultimate thing to do and the right thing to do. Knowing that you love her dearly, will keep your wife positive and in good health emotionally and mentally.

Although sometimes, very hard to understand but I do it for the sake of my baby. I love my wife more than my life. But because sometimes, due to stress from our offline business and the condition of my health because of the weather she rather understand my mood.

Wow Congratulations! You need to take care of your wife and love her more. Don't stress her much and as much as possible make her feel comfortable. You need also to have a good OB-Gyne and a regular pre-natal check up. This for the mother and the baby. She must eat healthy food and stay away from junk foods with high artificial flavorings. She must take vitamins like folic acid, iron and must drink milk like Anmum. You can ask the Ob-Gyne about these, don't drink medicines or vitamins that are not recommended and prescribed by the Ob-Gyne.

She drink Anmum 5 months before I arrived home based on the advice from her OB-Gyne. Until she still drinking the milk. I used to cook menu with vegetables. Before, she always refused to eat more vege foods. She doesn't have any choice except to follow me because it's the welfare of our incoming baby.

I am back my friend. I am very excited and happy now, I will be a good daddy soon. Before my wife got pregnant she consulted already to her OB and she start following it even few months before I arrived home.

All what I can advice you to do is to be much more responsable for your wife and your future child. Your life will change, so you will have to change some behaviors with it: You will have to provide your little family with extra time in order to fullfil their needs, especially in the period just after birth. Furthermore, try to be helpful for your wife in taking care of the child, for instance, it will be no harm in cleaning the house, washing dishes and doing courses from time to time. Anyway, I wish you a happy new life with the future baby and congratulation.

Unfortunately, I can't do that myself because I am working abroad. What I did I hired helper for our offline business whom she manage before, and also one to accompanied her in the house doing her daily chores before. I make sure she's relax and away from stress. With regards to my attitude, she doesn't have problem with me lately. Unlike before, I am hard headed and always roaming around with my friends.

Let her rest , give good food and dont go for a foreign trip again until she is fit and fine again. That's all , just take good care of her, rest of the things can be better explained by your family doctor. And Congrats

Congratulation! First of all I don't have any baby and second is that I only took care of my brothers baby most of the time but still I have some tips for you. Don't stress your wife too much, she has to rest for a while after nine months of carrying the baby. It's not easy. Always look after your baby and don't miss the part when he/she starts to call you dad. Just love them and everything will follow. Congratulations again! :)

Since I arrived she totally rest in our home. I didn't give her any extra load at home. Even making the laundry I request my sister to do it for her and also I avoid to give her problem and stress for any of my wrong doings.
