This was great! I watched the entire video and quickly sent it to boyfriend! This will be his first but not mine so as much as I want to educate him on what to expect, I think it's so great for him to hear it from another dad. And this video was great also because you're just real about it all and very laid back and I think we can all relate to that. Awesome video, thanks for sharing! Can't wait to hear my boyfriend's thoughts after watching this vid!
I know one thing..I have a 5 yr old. I have to take the verbal abuse from his mother and him. I'm not allowed to cuss not allowed to react like a man when a toy is thrown at my face while I'm sleeping. I know I'm going to snap soon. I've asked for help from family. They are on her side. I'm the piece of shit who is complaining. I love my kid but this shit don't seem worth it!
I remember about a month before the baby was due, we were stuck in traffic besides a regional airport. One of the guys I worked with said “see that runway there?” “Yes, why?” “Take a good long look at it because that’s the last landing str*p you will see for a long time.!” Though I would throw some humor around today.
I absolutely love that you did a whole Bible study with your family, and opened up about how the new baby was affecting you. It's really important for new dads, and all men for that matter, to really communicate when new changes are causing mental changes. And it's great that everyone in your family Bible study was there for you in that moment. A support system is hard for some people to establish. Congratulations on your new baby!
Thanks man. It definitely helped me reconcile any uneasy feelings. Being unsure as a first time father is inevitable, and your look back has definitely boosted my confidence. You seem like a great dad and I hope to be as insightful as you, for both my wife and child.
My husband was with me every doctors appointment my first pregnancy. Precovid.
I'm 7 almost 8 months pregnant now with our second. Hes unable to go to most of my doctors appointments. He can come to the ultrasounds that's about it. He feels like hes failing as a husband because of it. Which is so sweet.
He was such a big help with my first pregnancy and tries with my second pregnancy 😅
13:05, I cannot relate to that feeling at all. Not only was I holding my wife’s hand and guiding her with the nurse and doctor during the delivery, I cried tears of joy when he was born. My life gained a whole new meaning, and that amazing unconditional love and bond was there the minute he was born. I understand everyones emotions and attachments are different person to person. One universal rule is that every human on this earth has the need and desire to be loved.
I just want to say that as a father this video resonated with me 100%. But let me give you peace of mind. If and when you have a second child, this anxiety/depression/uncertainty is much less intense because you’ve been through it once and know how to handle it through your past experience. I just had a second child a week ago and so far I feel those same feelings trying to creep in and I’ve learned how to battle them intelligently.
I have a 1 month old with my girlfriend, and I am severely suffering from anxiety right now, like it's beyond horrific, but seeing you describe exactly how I'm feeling and seeing how much better you seem right now has made me feel hopeful. All the best to your family bro.
