TrueGCFan touched on a lot of the stuff I would advise..but I'll toss in some other stuff plus his points are good enough to repeat


- sleep now, when the baby gets here there will be times when you'll become an opportunistic sleeper. Plus I have a 7 and 3 year old and they still usually get up before me on weekends so I don't really sleep in most of the time

- be as supportive of your wife as you can. This is probably the biggest bonding opportunity for a couple and you'll need each other. But while she's going through pregnancy(and afterwards) remember that she's experiencing the same types of feelings as you, but with a brain full of crazy hormone mixtures. For example, second day home from the hospital my wife broke down crying because she didn't secure the diaper very tight. She cried and talked about how she was a horrible mother.

- prepare to worry. For the next 8-9 months you will worry about pretty much everything you could ever worry about(from diapers to college to health). Then hopefully you will be blessed with a healthy baby and go "thank God. Now I can stop worrying". You will enjoy that moment for about 3 seconds. Then you will realize you'll be worrying for the rest of your life. Just have faith and do your best.





- the most important advice I give expecting parents:

Enjoy each moment as it comes. When you're half asleep and just want to go back to bed, but instead have to warm a bottle and feed your child, try to enjoy it. It's a special time when an infant depends on you for everything. When they're only sitting there, don't wish for them to hurry up and walk or talk, just enjoy it. It's a special time, and it goes by fast. The thing is, us parents don't really know what the hell we're doing. I've done well for myself, and I have brothers who have as well. I also have brothers who are complete losers. Does that mean my parents were good parents or bad parents? Neither, it just means they did the best they could. And I think that enjoying each moment and trying to guide with love and reason instead of wishing they were doing something else or fitting into your idea of what they should be is the best way to go. It'll make things more enjoyable for you and for them.
