Hey guys, I'm new here! I am expecting my first child* to arrive this week and am starting to stress a bit. I have been searching for a while to find an active forum to discuss these things from a guys perspective. I really don't have many guys to talk to about this stuff (2 co-workers I connected with are both out on paternity leave)
I have been 100% supportive of my wife and have made the effort to put her feelings, emotions, comfort, etc. first through this entire pregnancy. Being strong for so long, now the anxiety and stress of the impending birth of my son is weighing on me. I am admittedly a bit crabby and visibly annoyed about stuff, but its been brushed off. To add to the stress of it all I have some long-term house guests (long story) which consist of a mother and her 2 daughters (2 and 12). I've taken this opportunity to learn and practice more patience but at this point every little thing is starting to get on my nerves (Justified or not) My mom is in town this week to help out so house guests have relocated temporarily. I am worried about how I will feel when they come back and now the baby is around.
