  • Wife Is Having A Baby

    My wife and I are expecting in the next few weeks. My question is for the dad's out there. How does it affect you on the job?

        I have to say that it has completely changed my life. Each person is different on how it effects them, so i cant say how it will be for you.

        Dont let anyone fool you either, it IS the greatest thing in the world, but some times can be a headache. Dont take that wrong though, I wouldnt give my son up for the world! What I mean is you find yourself worring about things you NEVER had to worry about before, and it can take a bit of a toll.

        Prepare for not getting much sleep before and when the baby is born. There will be 5 AM feedings, waking up crying, crying for no reason. Then theres the baby! lol (my wife would kill me if she saw this).

        Its all on the kind of person you are. For me it has enhanced my life ten fold.

        And like you I have one on the way as well!

        Congrats to you and your wife.



        I had to edit this to add the On the Job portion you added.

        I hadd my son when I was in corrections. I have to say that for the first year you should be VERY careful with how you think. You have to learn to trust the people you leave your child with to take care of them when you are on duty. I had to constantly remind myself to keep my head on a swivle and not let my guard down, mainly due to thinking about my son and what was going on at home. It helps if your wife isnt working, but you will still think about it. Try not tto dwell on it though afer all its not just your wife you need to come home safely to anymore.
        Another thing is when dealing with incidents with children or people who have children I found myself starting to get more indepth and critical of the situations after having a kid. I had to take a step back and discontect my feelings about the situation and remember I was law enforcement, not the judge or executioner. Most people despise these kind of people in general, but being a parent the feeling is hightened.

        Keep your head on straight and youll be fine.

            Congratulations. You'll be surprised how long you can go on four hours of sleep a night. Take a couple of weeks FMLA time to help the wife and take care of the baby. How does it affect you? Well, if there was some way of knowing it, you would gladly die tomorrow if it meant that your kids could live a long and happy life. I try very hard to avoid reading articles about child abuse/abductions/murder, etc. Stuff like that is now just to close to home and it just makes me sick.

              Thanks for the responses. We should find out tommorow if she will have a Caesarean or natural. She is 8 months and he is still breech. I know it will change me and I cannot wait. I just ask that you pray for us.

                Congrats. There is no love, like the love for your child.
                Do you know what your having?

                ps

                Those 2 am fights with the misses over nothing, go away about the time the baby sleeps for more than 3 hours.

                              Prayers sent Brother. My wife is pregnant to and I know how you feel. We had a call last week from the doctor saying that a bloodtest showed a abnormal count and something could be wrong with my son. Spinal Bifida, Downs, Etc.... We went yesterday to the doctor for more tests and turned out the baby is healthy and nothing is wrong. God is with you and your family.......
