Happy birthday, gorgeous. So indescribably happy to meet you!
Hey it's TJ, live-blogging the birth of our first child. Meggin's doing all the real work, so I figured I'd contribute what I can and document the event.

Just when you think you've come to terms with a change in your body or a new symptom, your body decides it's time for a fresh, new, humiliating and uncomfortable twist.

Ok, so your wife is pregnant. Now what? TJ writes about what it's like to be a first-time father-to-be.
I think now that part of standard pre- and post-natal care should be visits with a licensed family therapist. Pre-natal vitamins to combat birth defects and pre-natal therapy to combat pregnancy blues.
