But I'm reading the books and digesting.
Congrats on the new gift of life!!

Dont do the 3D Ultra sound!! Had many friends in health field as well as our last two Pediatritions say they are linking it to sight and hearing loss on the children. That is why no hospitals around here do it, it has to be private practice and you sign off on all liability to get the picture..... Not worth it in my opinion even if its just in question at this point!

Well I just found out at this mornings ultrasound that I am having my 4th boy....... Gave my wife 2 extra tries at her girl but it didnt work out!! So long as they are healthy that is all that matters! Due date is going to be 1/31/09, just in time for Superbowl!! Now I will be sporting my own football team in 20 years! Lol...

As for reading materials, not much you can do to prepare..... best book by far( since my wife bought out everything at B&N, is "What to expect when your Expecting"! That is the only book she has picked up since the first child and answers just about every question you can ever think of!

Congrats again!!

My wife is at 20 weeks with our first...just found out that it is a girl. Have to agree with Texasfan on What to Expect When You Are Expecting...another good book to check out is Baby Bargains. It talks about all baby gear that you will need and does reviews on all the brands. I have just looked at the stroller section so far but it did a really good job reviewing each brand and giving recommendations based on what you are using it for.

Thanks for the info. And Congrats guys on having great swimmers! haha Our due date is April 2nd. So close to April 1st, which was my original due date.

I bought a couple books about 2 weeks ago. "The guy's guide to surviving pregnancy, childbirth, and first year of fatherhood." This book is just funny as hell. The other one is "The New Father: A dads guide to the first year". I haven't started that, but it seems more serious and what not. But I will look into the book you both suggested. I'm all for learning.

Texansfan, thanks for the info on the 3D ultrasound. I was on the fence about it, and now I think I'm not gonna do it.

You can always check with your doctor and see if things have changed, but that is just what we had researched last year for our other baby. Wife wanted it so bad until we started asking for the medical opinions, then she thought better of it.

My wife and I had 2, 3D ultrasounds done. It was really great to see what our daughter looked like before she was born. We could definitely make out features that were passed on by either myself or my wife I hadn't heard about any risks/dangers related to having these done, but I would definitely ask your doctor to see what their opinion is.
